New theme

I’ve been looking to try a new theme to freshen things up a bit, but had some difficulty finding something I liked as well as Lightword. I finally settled on Arclite, but not without some tweaks. Frankly, there are a few things about the design that had me scratching my head. The worst is the look of the submenus, but my distaste for it kind of forced me to be a little cleaner in how I organized my Photography page.

Here are the CSS overrides I wound up implementing:

#main-content {padding: 0 1em 1em 1em;}

a:hover {color: #0071BB; text-decoration: underline;}

.widget_tag_cloud a:hover {background: none repeat scroll 0 0; color: #369;}

h3 {font-family: “Union”, “Lucida Grande”, “Lucida Sans Unicode”, Arial, Helvetica, Sans, FreeSans, Jamrul, Garuda, Kalimati;
text-shadow: none;}

.post p.post-date,.post p.post-author {display:none;}

#pagetitle h1.logo {font-variant: normal; letter-spacing: -.1;}

.block-content {width: 960px; max-width: 960px;}

.box {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
background: none;
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
-o-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;

.box .titlewrap {background: none; padding-left: 0px;}
.box .titlewrap h4 {background: none; color: #333; border-bottom: 1px solid #333;}
.box .wrapleft {background: none;}
.box .wrapright {background: none;}
.box .bl {background: none;}
.box .tl {background: none;}
.box .br {background: none;}
.box .tr {background: none;}

ul#nav li a:hover {color: #CCC;}

h3.post-title, h2.post-title {font-size: 250%; font-weight: normal; text-shadow: gray 1px 1px 1px;}
h3.post-title a:hover, h2.post-title a:hover {color: #333;}

.post-content img, .attachment img, .navigation .alignleft img, .navigation .alignright img {margin: 4px 10px 4px 0;}
