Blog revamp

I’m revamping the blog template with a shiny new one. Please excuse any mess.

PS. I’ll continue tweaking things for a bit.

I’ve changed things around a bit from the original template, which was designed by Brian Gardner, and released under the GPL so people like me who are hopeless at designing templates can use it and tweak.

Apart from the top banner, the fonts have been switched so the headings are primarily sans serif and the main content is primarily serif. Brian’s original design had it the other way around.

I’ll continue tweaking as I go, but I’m pretty happy with it now.

Noticed the Twitter feed has vanished. Will look into it.

And Tony tells me that the dropdown menus don’t work in Safari on the Mac. They’re an unexpected bonus in this template, so will look at them at some stage, but not top priority.

could be my dodgy browser setup, but I found the old site easier to read :-)
Need some white space to the left of the page, and less white space between lines (comes up as doublespaced in my Firefox + IE)…

Thanks for all the comments. I’m still making adjustments.

Scott, yes agreed on whitespace between lines, have adjusted. There is some to the left of the page, but it seems to disappear on some browsers when zooming in; I’ll keep fiddling.
