Redesigned(-ish)

So, this is the new design. It’s almost exactly the same as the old – about the only visual change is that it’s wider than before, and that all the pages have a footer (it’s not that interesting).
However, because it’s now (mostly) compatible with Kubrick, it means that, should you fancy a change, you can use Kubrick instead. This is because there’s a PHP-based stylesheet switched implemented (visiting this URL resets the stylesheet to the default) – your choice will be remembered in a 30-day cookie. Currently, Kubrick is the only other stylesheet on here but I hope to get some of my older templates added.
Note that if you’re using Opera, Kubrick is the only theme that you can use. Since making the changes IcyBlue no longer renders properly in Opera. The code causing it is, I think, needed so that IE renders it properly, and as IE users outnumber Opera users I had to make the change.
There’s still a few odd pages that will look terrible – I’ll fix those in due course.
I ditched the ‘new’ design because of the Opera issue and instead shoehorned the old design into the Kubrick structure. I’m happier with it now.

  3. Reset works perfectly now. I like the simplicity of both designs but I think the Kubrick one has the edge. And I still think you need a little graphic somewhere on the home page… ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. So… are you planning on releasing this as a template? I like the look of this and won’t mind implementing it myself.

  5. Are you going to be putting a link on the homepage to allow us to change the skins?

  6. Mike: No idea, I haven’t yet decided.

  7. Excuse the mess

    Like Neil did I am converting to Kubrick. It will look ugly for a bit until I get everything updated correctly….

  8. Excuse the mess

    Like Neil did I am converting to Kubrick. It will look ugly for a bit until I get everything updated correctly. Okay… correction… I have totally messed this up and am not sure what the problem is anymore. I am…
