I’ve made quite a few changes recently.
I’ve changed the template on this blog. My goal was to have a clean fluid 3 column display. The previous template was neither fluid nor 3 column. It certainly looked clean enough, but at a fixed width of 770 pixels it’s fine on a 15 inch monitor running at 800 x 600, but not on today’s bigger, higher resolution monitors running at 1024 x 768, 1280 x 1024 or even 1600 x 1280.
I’m running a 1280 x 1024 display here, and as a web designer myself, I’m painfully aware of all the lost screen estate with such a fixed width template. FIxed width is great for those sites that need to have images in a fixed place in relation to the text, but as a blog is largely text, with perhaps an image or two clearly attached to the article it was posted with, this isnt’ usually a problem
The Gilla template I found is just the job. It’s clean, and tidy. It adjsuts to the width of the display, and it’s got a right and a left hand column. I like it very much, and I hope that you like it too.
Please feel free to leave any comments!
The Kat & Eye Photo Gallery is coming along nicely too. Uploading the photgraphs is the easy bit. One has to take a little thought over the album structure. It’s not set in stone, but I’m trying to make it something a little intuitive. I’m probably failing miserably at that, becuase there are so many ways to arrange a multitude of photographs from various parts ofthe world taken of various subjects at various times.
Again, please feel free to leave comments about the Kat & Eye Photo Gallery, either here on in the gallery itself.
The Kat & Eye Wafflebox has also been updated a little with the menus now available in no less than five other languages other than English, namely, French, German, Spanish, Esperanto, and Welsh. If you’ve not been in, go check it out. It’s free to use. You need to sign up, and validate yourself, but this is a quick painless process. This is just to ensure that we don’t get too many fruit loops posting silly items and upsetting other users. There are a number of areas in which you can post, and if you’d like to start a new area to suit an interest of yours just email one of the moderators there.
Enjoy!No tags for this post.
