w00t, new template is now live :)

Awesomeness, after a bit of tinkering this afternoon the new template is live 🙂 There are bound to be bugs and I haven’t had the time to bug test it in Internet Explorer 6 yet, but it’s working nicely in FF3 and IE8.

I tells ya, IE6 is the bane of the internet. Such old, filthy code. I wish MS made the update to a newer browser mandatory with the onset of WinXP SP2. Would have saved the world a much better, gradually more standards-compliant place online 🙂

Anywho, if any bugs crop up, let me know. And again, apologies in advance to the IE6 users – once I’ve got my new template finished for Retro Otaku, I’ll go back and give you a nice little stylesheet to suit your archaic browser 🙂

  1. Cool! I like the transparency in the header.

    I don’t even code for IE6 anymore. Most of my web clients don’t ask to make things compatible for it either. Even Google is dropping support for it this year.

  2. Awesome, thanks for the feedback 🙂 I’m really happy with it, too.

    Nice to get some anti-IE6 feedback froma fellow blogger, and didn’t realise Google was dropping support for it this year. That’s brill.

    Might use a little PHP to do a browser detect and throw in a bit of code to let IE6 users know their browser isn’t supported. I know I could achieve the same thing with some CSS and setting the div to hidden as standard with an [if IE6] clause pointing to another CSS with some display properties (or just a bit of jQuery to do a pop-up), but PHP is fun to play with and I need to get more familiar with it since I mainly use ASP at work 🙂

  3. Looking great! The header is killer.

  4. Thanks Matt 🙂 I’m really chuffed with how it’s turn out as well. I’m now plugging away at the design for my other blog, and once that’s done, I can finally get back to actually writing some new content!!!
