@manton thanks! I’ll just switch back to the old theme. Thanks!

@jeff Some of the themes aren't compatible with GitHub Pages. I'm investigating why, but in the meantime if the errors are annoying I'd suggest disabling the GitHub mirroring.

@manton just switched to Marfa, and I’m seeing a flood of build failures on github: Your SCSS file assets/stylesheets/global.scss has an error on line 1: File to import not found or unreadable: base/reset. Load path: /hoosegow/.bundle/ruby/2.4.0/gems/jekyll-theme-primer-0.5.3/sass

@manton thanks - also thankyou @roelwillems - just moved my world to Marsa and with your tips embedded in codepen.io (thankyou @kitts ) - my new look is beginning to emerge - even making me take out a lot of the pages I had. Still not there - but as the boys from Liverpool had ... It’s getting better all the time

@kitt was just about to call you out on this one - who pointed me towards codepen.io

i have been using one of the other templates and had my style all working - but I do like the clean Marfa - so back to codepen to nuance it.

@kitt @roelwillems Yes! Google Fonts makes it easy by giving the import url & CSS. I have a custom font for headers and another for body. Adds a nice subtle enhancement. This is a great conversation!

@JohnPhilpin Yes, the order should be working well now.

@chet @roelwillems use an @import CSS directive to include google fonts. developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc...

@import url("fonts.googleapis.com/css");

Add to the top of the custom CSS

@manton will take a look ... did we ever resolve the page order in menus ?

@roelwillems This is why I love this community - people willing to help others out :)

@chet Changing the fonts is certainly possible with the CSS overwrite. Google fonts (or any other third party font) needs to be imported using HTML, so this won't be possible. If you would like a lot of personalisation you could always use Wordpress and cross-posting.

@roelwillems this is an excellent idea! Maybe even using custom fonts using Google fonts?

@manton That's great, feel free. If it would help others I can also write some additional Microguides for the other themes (just so people can add a small personal touch with a hint of color).

@chet That's not possible without hiding the element with CSS (you can not alter the HTML). If you really would like to hide it you could use .p-role {display: none;}. Although this is just a hack and not very clean.

@roelwillems Thanks for writing this up! That's going to be very helpful for people. I can link to it from our help site too.

@roelwillems any idea on how to change the default text under my name? Feels refundant with the same link in the upper right hand corner

@chet @manton I stumbled upon your conversation about changing the link color in the Marfa theme. I wanted to add a personal touch to Marfa myself and wrote a small how-to. Maybe it is of help to you: roelwillems.com/2018/04/1...

@antonzuiker We’re at an Airbnb south of Alpine! Tin Valley Ranch! It’s amazing here.

@willfanguy Beautiful part of the country. My brother-in-law started Marfa Public Radio, my sister-in-law has great airbnb outside Alpine. Wish I could go back.

@manton @antonzuiker No way! I’m between Alpine and Terlingua right now. Headed up through Marfa tomorrow. Small world.

@antonzuiker Thanks! We've been rafting there too and love west Texas, but have never made it to Marfa. Just about everywhere else nearby: Balmorhea, Alpine, Fort Davis, etc.

@manton Using the Marfa theme, and liking it. Reminds me of my visit to Marfa, Texas, and rafting the Rio Grande in Big Bend National Park.

@manton I tried late last night, but the elements that I targeted didn’t work out. I’m going to hop on the Slack channel and ask the enlightened folks over there. I’ll post a picture of myself in Marfa later

@chet Cool! It's possible to change the colors via custom CSS but I don't have an example right now. Requires overriding a few of the colors.

@manton is there an easy way to change the color of the text decoration? That pink isn’t my flavor. I’m conflicted because I love Marfa. Got my pilots license there back in 2005.

Rolled out some fixes to the new Marfa theme on Micro.blog, updating the page headers and footer.
