Furry animation contest deadline; WordPress theme experiment.

Animation news via Higgs Raccoon of Furrymedia:


Hiya Patch,

Here’s something for you to report in the Dogpatch Press. Kinda time-critical, though.

There’s a company called Saban Brands, which is running a competition for animated shorts. The judging is by public voting, but there’s only a day-and-a-bit left (I only just happened upon it.)

Website here: http://sabanshorts.com/

The shorts include a few with anthro critters.(“Late to Work!” with the raccoon is nice, but “Hijacked” with the furry pirate crews is my favourite.)


Theme experiment


The blog is undergoing a little tweaking. This free theme (Twentyfourteen) pleases me in many ways – but has two major drawbacks:

  • I want the center content area to span 1000px for long-form articles, best suited to read on a PC monitor.
  • Justified left sucks – it needs to be centered!

Reviewers have knocked Twentyfourteen theme for this, but I just haven’t seen many others I like.

The previous theme, Manifest, had the major advantage of centered content spanning the entire screen, at any width I told it to take.

But I’m mystified how to tweak this one – the CSS customization option doesn’t respond.  Anyone help?  If I can’t find an answer I will revert to the old theme soon.

EDIT – reverted.
