Okay decided that the old theme wasn't really that professional and figured this looked at least a little better. Remember I'm not a designer so you'll have to put up with the amateur look! However I have pulled WordPress apart today and hacked CSS to death to get it working in Microsoft Internet Explorer. For those of you who do use it, yes I know about the broken post bar, Dave'll fix it hopefully tonight or tomorrow for me as I'm fed up of naff MSIE and it's non standards. My advice to you today is get a real browser like Firefox… Trust me it's far better! I'll be listing up my used theme and extensions soon for anyone who's interested. I've just gotta fix this site first!
What's new? Well besides the look, I've hardcoded in my top nav bar. I intend to randomise those pictures too once I've written a script and a database table to hold the images. That way I can add new ones as and when without too much hassle. Plus being small they can be off my phone (which the above all were) without a noticeable deterioration of quality. I've also created some standalone pages outside of WordPress but using WordPress's features. How? Well I tried using their Page option but it wasn't doing what I wanted and so I found a way to load all of the WP stuff with having control of the page but still being able to use their functions and classes (so I don't have to update the Archive!). I'm listing out all of the blogs, resource sites etc. etc. that I have and read so you'll have to bear with me on that one. It's a mini bookmark site for me and possibly of interest to someone out there too. I'll post how I did it later when I've fine tuned everything
Now I did have a festive title image, santa hat n everything, but that seems to have got lost from the offline to online version. Not sure where it's gone, probably down to my CSS. For anyone that want's to see it now until I can get it back on the page permanently (well until Christmas is over)…
A nice little font and I coloured in the red and green!
Anyhow, I'm still fixing bits here and there but if anyone finds something that's gone a bit skewiff please be sure to comment and let me know. Of course let me know what you think of the new design too
