Been tweakin’

Welcome to yet another fresh look here at regularjen…

I’ve been monkeying around with CSS for my WordPress blog this afternoon. I’ve still got some bugs to work out, but I wanted to trim down the available styles you can view my site as and have the choices all be my own layouts. You now have two choices: “my eyes” (which was the style you were seeing it as), and “cracked” (featuring a photo I took of some rusty stuff and some cute Photoshopped text).

I’m still fine-tuning the new style and debugging, so it’ll likely change a bit over the next few hours, but I like where it’s going and may use my final CSS to create some more styles… I’ve based the CSS off of another free WP stylesheet, but then, who doesn’t…

  1. Hey jEN,

    lookin’ good, like cracked.

    Sorry to be the one to point it out if you haven’t already noticed, your calendar is broken.


  2. Neil helped me fix the calendar permalinks… the prob was addressed on the WP site so he guided me through the repair. 🙂 I’ve no idea how long my calendar might have been down, but I guarantee I never touched the .htaccess file in recent tamperings… Weirdness.
    Funky behaviour nipped- now time for bed…

    Thanks for the compliment and alert, Kev!
    Happy Birthday! (it’s just past midnight… )

  3. Hi Jen,

    You’ll probably know but eh.. the layout of your site is different in I-Explorer then in Firefox (for example). I guess you’re a Firefox or Mozilla user? It looks like the content is shifted to the left in I-Explorer. A margin/padding issue in CSS maybe?

    Good luck with your site. Like the design!


  4. Hello and welcome Saskia!

    Yeah- I decided that the lack of standards compliance with IE wasn’t really a priority here to a large extent. I actually code cross browser/platform sites in CSS/XHTML as a profession now, but for some reason am lazy with doing it with my own blog. 🙂

    I’m a Mac user and Safari girlie, but am on IE 6 & FF on the PC and FF & Safari on the Mac pretty much every day… Perhaps I’ll look at fixing it- I suppose it would make a better experience for all. 🙂

    Thanks for your comment and hope you’ll keep reading!

  5. Aha- one post in particular was to blame for the majority of my IE woes… although I’ve patched it well enough with the use of style=”clear:both;” it still doesn’t behave perfectly/attractively for all browsers. It’s a quick bandage on the problem, but not a fix the pleases me entirely. Thanks for bringing it to my attention Saskia!
