Ready, Set, Go!

Getting started is always the toughest part, so I’m glad to say I’ve now started the design phase. I’ve already gotten the CSS blockwork done. Now there’ll be a lot of detailing and nitpicking. One thing I can say already though; this won’t be designed with you 800×600’ers out there. Around 3.5% of you who view this site are still using that archaic resolution; I’d suggest upgrading your monitor or upping that resolution slider in display properties. 🙂 As well, I finally got around to upgrading to the final version of IE7. As much as I want to, I can’t leave out support for that browser you love to hate. Plus, the percentage of IE viewers creeps up with each passing month to this site; that’s probably because the readers are diversifying from the core group of WordPress bloggers who’ve come in search of some templates. That crew knows where it’s at (*cough*Firefox*cough*).

I’ve also found a few nice effects that I want to include. I’m looking at you Justin; I found that Lightbox thing. It looks pretty darn awesome.

But enough coding, I need my rest. My throat’s still bugging me and this cough won’t go away.

  1. IE7?
    Hold on a sec. I think I just vomited a little in my mouth.

    Annie may be coming down on the 2nd btw.

    now you’re motivating me to finish designing my site.

  2. I know, I know, it’s blasphemous, but I have to do it. It’s a pain too; there are sooooo many random CSS and layout hacks to make it look proper in IE. Annoying but necessary. I’ve seen some AMAZINGLY designed sites during my idea gathering phase but they break the instant IE comes near it. Quite sad really.

    After a solid weekend of beavering away, I’d say I’m probably somewhere around a third done. I sucks at the photoshop. 🙁
