CSS Upgrade Complete
I think I’m done upgrading the CSS design of the web site / blog.
I am finally done updating the blog design. :)
And thanks to Kenji at Beats Entropy for the initial comments on my very horrible first draft while hanging out at my house.
- I was surprised to find that the Sandbox theme was missing some selectors that would have been useful.
- body .post-id
- body.single .entry-meta span selectors for categories, comments RSS feed, trackbacks (would have made it very easy to add icons to the entry-meta).
- I really like the icons, but do they slow down the page load too much?
- Icons aren’t transparent on IE6 because of an IE6 bug (surprise). Too lazy to convert them all to gif.
- Page excerpts won me over. It’s much easier to browse through lots of posts to find the one you’re looking for.
- It know it’s fixed width. I also hate fixed width sites, but it was so much easier to do the design. Text and flickr images look better when the column is 200px.
- It was designed so that it kind of fits on 800×600, with just the sidebar obscured. I wanted a wide sidebar so this was a better compromise than the page look very squished at 800×600.
- It looks best 1024×768.
- Technically, you can read the main column on 640×480.
The cat had to go. If you miss him, you can read more.
