Nineteenth-century History

New ‘Featured’ Page

Just as a quick announcement, I’ve spent quite a bit of time today getting History Rhymes back up and running at full capacity after switching themes. The new theme broke some of my old pages, specifically the Archives and Links pages, but now those problems are resolved and they’ve both been slightly redesigned.

Aside from fixed problems, I’ve also added a new header image with the blog name and a cowboy hat. The other new item I’ve added today is a new featured article page. This page contains the posts that I think are the most informative and best written. If you hover over the ‘Featured’ button on the menu above, you’ll see that it also lists the multi-part series I’ve done. This new page is a great place to start reading this blog if you are unsure, overwhelmed or just want the good stuff.

You can check out the featured page here: https://www.historyrhymes.info/featured.
