Website Layout Change

Hi everyone,

I’m sorry to have to change the layout of the website, but I just spent about an hour and a half deleting over 4,000 spam comments on the website. None of these were ever viewable, but instead held for moderation. I’ve installed a plug in that will require a CAPTCHA (“type the letters you see into this box”) before a comment can be submitted. This will still allow humans to post to the site, but not robots trying to sell us various medicines. That’s what most the spam actually was.

Unfortunately, there was some type of issue in the old theme/layout that didn’t support the CAPTCHA script, which is why I’ve had to change it.

Please let me know your opinion of this layout (good OR bad) and I’ll do my best to make the site as accessible as possible!

73,
