New Layout 2

posted in Site Updates on Jun 16, 2008

Well, it looks like I’ve got everything at least running. Nothing exploded and no babies were harmed (much). Although I did just notice that I’m using the same theme as Blake Huggins. He (and 80,000 other people) did find it first, so I cannot take credit for this theme. It’s a good theme though, so I hope everyone is ok with me using it.

Now all I need to do is get new pictures for the rotating banner and fix the issue with the dark text when using the lightbox feature. I’m sure it’s somewhere stuck in the CSS.

  • it is a good theme. i like it because the CSS is really easy to screw with unlike some others. changing the images isn’t that hard — i didn’t feel like photoshopping more than one — and there’s a lot of information on the the cutline site especially in the forums.

  • I don’t know, as I was looking through the CSS, it’s laid out fine, but for some reason I don’t really like its aesthetic. I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. For some reason it just looks a little cluttered to me. Not hard to read, just cluttered. The last theme I had had such well written CSS. It was blocked all out beautifully (if you can use such a word to describe text). Anyway…

    Yeah, I looked through all the code and it looks like there are four or five rotating banners. I just need to get some interesting pictures to put up. I’m going to Colorado next week (to the potential chagrin of my job [oh well]), so I should be able to get something there. Thanks for that link, though, definitely!
