    Hi all,
    This is my first website RunHikeTrail created using WordPress. I would appreciate it any feedback on how to improve on the layout of the site. Thanks!

    nice but...
    1. I don't like the shadows on the menu text
    2. the home page should just have an excerpt rather than than whole post, this makes the home page too long and takes too long to load.

    Hi Pete,
    Thank you so much for your constructive feedback. I agree with you that the home page should just have an excerpt to make it easier to download. How do I go about setting that, do you know?

    Re shadows on the menu text, I don't get what you mean.

    Cheers,
    Lee Lee

    Look in your home.php or index.php file and find where is says <?php the_content(); ?>... replace it with <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    Depending on your browser the menu text has a black offset shadow, i don't like it but that's just me, other's may love it. If you want to turn the shadow off find this in your style.css

    #pagemenu li a, #pagemenu li a:link {
        border-right: 1px solid #99A642;
        color: #FFFFFF;
        display: block;
        font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
        font-size: 12px;
        font-weight: bold;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 11px 14px 12px;
        text-decoration: none;
        text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #000000;
        text-transform: none;
    }

    And edit the text-shadow part to text-shadow: none;

    Make sure you always backup first!!!
