Closer and Closer...

Wow!... tired, but I made good progress on my site redesign today. Still lots of stuff to fix but the basic ideas are all there, and the more I work on it the easier it gets. At first working with stylesheets was harder than doing things the old way, but now it makes it so much easier to change things on the site. Separating content from form... who's idea was that? I have a big kiss for them.

You can see what I have in mind by clicking on the knoppix link in the menu bar at the top. The colorscheme, page background and flavor bar (images along the top) will change depending on which part of the site you happen to be in --right now it's just the page background changing but the rest is easy. Well... at least the mechanical aspect of it is easy. Honestly I'm finding it difficult to come up with color schemes that I think look good. I may have to study some color theory before I can finish this part of the project. Or maybe I'll just look around till I find some I like, and snake them...

Added a dynamic image replacement feature today. The logo, ad spoof (kacked is good food, etc), titles, etc. are all replaced by images dynamically. From truetype fonts on the server (is that cool or what? hehe.) I'll check later to see if this is a big hit on load time. I think it's managable. The big hit right now is the flavorbar image collage. I'll have to work on making that a smaller file since I plan on changing it depending on which part of the site you happen to be in.

Wasted some time looking for "the right" fonts but did find a few good ones. This would go faster if I could pull back and look at the "big picture" more often. Tend to get caught up in the details. Maybe more frequent breaks -as in taking a break at all.

I think that menu bar along the top would work better if it was underneath the image bar. That would break up the text better between the logo stuff and menu stuff. What do you think?
