Hey Look! Things Look Different Around Here

I’ve been royally tired of my blog theme for a long time. So tonight, to distract myself from various things I didn’t want to be thinking about, I decided to choose a new theme and apply all my theme tweaks to it. So here it is, my first draft. Things might change for a while, and I still have to test the tweak that I’ll always think of as “Walt’s tweak” (the one that Dorothea and Steve worked so hard to help me apply to my last theme), but I already like this a whole lot better.

One thing that confuses me is my sidebar. Every once in a while it refuses to sit in its natural spot off to the left and migrates, for no known reason, down to the bottom of the page. I don’t think it’s far enough south to have warmer weather down there, so I’m at a bit of a loss. If anyone has any ideas, I’m open to hearing them.

Update: Reducing the sidebar width from 25% to 20% seems to have done the trick. Yay! But I’m still open to suggestions for other things to change. This is still pretty much an out-of-the-box theme.

Update 2: Grrr… Walt’s Tweak kills the blog in IE. Will have to investigate sometime when better coding minds than mine can help me.

  1. Nice. I always like the minimalist layouts.

    If you’re still having any issues with the sidebar, you might want to consider giving it a minimum width in the css:

    .sidebar {
    width: 25%;
    min-width: 250px;}

  2. Hmmm… didn’t work as planned, but it did still solve the problem, somehow, even though it didn’t actually set a minimum width. Odd.
