New Theme

General, Ramblings 4 Comments

Yesterday I decided I was sick of my old weblog theme, so started hacking a new one together, based on the theme I cooked up for my photoblog (which is already falling behind, but such is life). I finished it this afternoon, and here it is.

The biggest change is that it’s finally flexible-width rather than fixed width, which I much prefer. It seems to work fine in Firefox, Safari, and Camino (on Mac), and kinda-sorta mostly in IE on Windows. I haven’t tested it in any other browser/OS combos at this point, so if you’re seeing problems with it anywhere, let me know. Oh, the photoblog archive pages are still messed up in IE, but I’m starting to not care. I’ll fix it eventually, I just mostly can’t stand browsing in Windows because it renders fonts like poop.

    You need to set the colours for everything, rather than relying on the default to be black-on-white. If a user has changed her browser default colours then your page gets a mix of her colours and yours, which could render it unreadable.

    At the moment most non-heading non-link text is using the default text colour, and there are a few horizontal stripes across the page using the default background colour.

    Oop, thanks for the heads-up on those. I think they should be fixed now.
