There’s a whole new look here at Division X Design. I completely redid everything and it is now running on HTML 5 and CSS 3.
Most of my design elements include border radius for containers and links, fading transitional effects for navigation, and a background gradient for the body.
I incorporated the new design into the the blog by developing a new WordPress template using the HTML 5 Doctype.
Even though the site looks finished it is actually a work in progress as I will continue to make updates and improvements with new content and functions with the blog and the entire site itself.
Used pure HTML and CSS in the creation of this page.
Please use Firefox, Chrome or Safari to view the page as intended.
No images of any kind are being used.
As you may have noticed… I changed the look of the main navigation menu up above.
I was never quite satisfied with the old design. The look is new and is reflected or complimented by the page footer at the bottom.
I also implemented the 900 pixel layout rule to the entire site.
Rather soon I’m going to update my portfolio pages. I like the layout right now but I’m thinking of doing something different. I’m also entertaining thoughts of adding a web photo gallery to the site.
I decided to expand the width of my blog to 900 pixels up from 800 pixels to add more room to the sidebars.I noticed that in the previous layout that sidebar content was a bit squished so I figured it would be a good idea to add some more space to make it easier on the eyes. The rest of The Site is still 800 pixels in width but will soon be expanded to 900 pixels just to keep things consistent around here. Making changes on the stylesheet was a relatively painless affair in the expansion.
I’m entertaining thoughts of redoing the main menu… maybe adding a gradient scheme for the main navingation bar as well as a redesign of my portfolio pages and adding a web photo gallery to The Site.
Did some housekeeping or should I say Spring cleaning over here at Division X Design.
I added a footer to each page with main site navigation. Cleaned up my feedback form and added today’s date to the main page.
I’m thinking about re-styling the main menu with something a bit more… uhmmm creative and also looking into a redo my portfolio pages too.
Just updated my wordpress blog to version 2.9…
it was so easy!
Thank you WordPress!
I want to add PHP menus to the site and I think this site will give me an idea on how to incorporate them into the site. I know that the menu bar above does not look quite right and I will take care of that in the next day or so. Unordered lists can be a pain sometimes to code out but I’m trying to do away with extraneous CSS rules and hacks that aren’t necessary.
2 sidebars are now on my blog so you don’t don’t have to scroll all the way down…
Within the next 24 hours I am going to redo the layout of this blog so bear with me… you may find things a bit out of place as I update the CSS.
to have on any job is music… just added the Last FM widget to my sidebar on the right.
