Shiny Fancy vs. What Works

I’ve been rebuild Fanbards.net/Darkscribes.org and have gotten to the point where I needed to work on presentation. Drupal guys and others recommend using radix, which is a fancy shiny theme. It is however difficult for me to get my head around. I already have to add css in in order to properly integrate the dashboard.

I have been using Footheme on the page for my theming before now. It’s simple, easy to setup a usable Adaptive Theme subtheme based on Corolla or Pixture Reloaded, and looks good enough.

Bootstrap, Twitter’s contribution to the internet, looks really fancy and can be used by anything. But it’s still difficult to get things working at times. So I’m going to stick with the easy way for now. It gets the job done, and I’m not paid so I don’t have to make everything all glossy.
