It has been quite a while since I changed the look of this site. In the first few months of the site’s life the look was changing constantly, but after a while I decided I would have to create a design I liked and just stick with it. And I did just that for quite a while. Recently, though, some of the previous site’s shortcomings began to bother me, so I decided it was time for a change. And so I present to you this whole new look.
There are many advantages to this new setup, and a few disadvantages. The greatest disadvantage is that I am no longer planning on posting the full text of my latest post on the main page. Instead, you’ll have to click on Read More to get the rest of it. Not a big deal, I know, but some people will find it annoying. I believe that is the primary disadvantage. In my mind, the advantages are much greater:
- Full XHTML compliance.
- Full CSS compliance.
- The structure of the site is built entirely with stylesheets rather than tables.
- A new look for the forum
- A new look for the commenting area
- RSS, RSS2 and Atom feeds
The site has been built with accessibility and cross-browser support in mind. I am eager to get some feedback, so feel free to let me know your thoughts on it.
Finally, if you are a photographer and would like to have one of your photos featured on this site, I am intending to change the photo banner once per week. Dimensions need to be 750 x 200 pixels. If you are interested, contact me.
