A new theme...

You are here

Probably you can notice that ;-)

I still have to do a few things with javascript, Maybe I won't.

I guess I like the new colors, Someone deserves a big thank you for the basic logo especially when you know that she did the drawing on my iPAQ using the stylus. The rest was created using The GIMP and emacs. Emacs, The past, Present and future.

I wanted the theme to be pure CSS but I failed, I had to do the top part using tables and I'm telling you that it's UGLY.

Finally. IE, You suck *** *** ****, All various problems from float drops to breaking the semi-transparent PNG logo and forcing me to use a GIF one to doubling a div margin. While the first one was triggered by a resolution of 800*600, The last one was always happening.
Opera for windows had a very tiny problem with the small image in the top right of the footer but I'm ignoring it.

Drupal, I raise my non-Red Hat to everyone behind you. Easy theming, There might be problems due to the default drupal CSS but I was able to iron them out in a snap!

Windows, You suck, The colors aren't being displayed correctly, I don't know how or why but I don't really care.

I still need to reorganize a few things here and there but it takes time.

Your previous one was much better, nevertheless "Acd" template was the perfect fit, it needed some modifications after all. Anyway, you seem happy. Congrats :P

Why was the previous one much better ?

I think the current style is way too bloated, it would be nice to have the "Acd" template back. Some modifications in the CSS as providing an eyecandy color with a neat style is the whole thing.

Anyway, it's a personal preference (wel nas 2azwa2) ! We would babble about that forever, and it all returns to Sameer at the first place ;)

Good day.

I'll ask you the same question, Why do you think it's bloated ?

Not slick as the previous ones, have a look at my website and maybe you'll get the idea, i still like the Adc template.

Now I should feel jealous and finish my theme and migrate. If you are the perfectionist I know: My username is a bit too long to fit in the yellow area :)

Good work, Sameer.

Very nice ya Sameer!

I like it much better than the previous: It's more personal, has a human touch suitable for a blog and not yet another canned theme for some alphabet repository.

PNG transparency is supported by IE only when in 8-bit mode, not indexed.

8bit ? Hmmmmmmmm, That's Ahmad :-)

What's 8bit and indexed anyway ;-)

8-bit per channel == 24 bit true color images
vs.
Indexed (pallete based) images

GIF is always indexed
JPEG is always true color
PNG supports both
