“Ready or not, action!” X3
After over 3 weeks in the works and 4 days behind schedule, the new theme I’ve been planning since a couple of months ago is finally complete, except for any potential bugs that might appear.
It didn’t really come out the way I planned it to either. My CSS skills needs plenty of polishing up. But in the end, I’m still quite happy with the result. There are still some tweaking to do though, and I’d like to hear some feedback if you have any. It’s best to implement any necessary changes while I can still remember which code does what.
I tried to keep the overall feel the same as my old theme, which you can probably notice with the fonts and the basic colour schemes. Page navigation has been moved to the top in a horizontal format rather than vertical since it was taking up quite a bit of space in the sidebar. The search box has also been moved up there.
The blogroll was also getting very lengthy and I’m pretty sure no one likes or even bothers to check out those long lists so it has now been moved to a separate page called “Links” on the top navigation and 5 random links will appear on the sidebar. Right underneath that will be 5 random posts from the archives.
I’m also considering to create a dynamic banner as well as truncating posts on the main page and use a “Read More” link to keep the page from stretching out too long.
So, let me know what you think 😀
