You may have noticed either the new layout, the increased activity in your RSS feed, or perhaps both. I decided that the old layout was a bit distracting and didn't convey the sense of quality that readers might demand from an unprofessional, irregularly published, and largely irrelevant religious satire blog. A few days of tinkering with things I didn't understand, and voilà!
I had to publish the disclaimer and contact and about pages so that I could link to them from the sidebar. They probably don't contain anything you don't already know, so feel free to ignore them.
There is a link-to-be on the sidebar that will one day take visitors to a list of readers' favorite/favourite Frodlogy posts. If anyone remembers an article which particularly made them laugh, I'd love to know what it is. Thanks!
Since I've only been testing the new layout on a separate blog for a couple of days, there are inevitably going to be things wrong with it. Such as:
- The font in the footer is wrong and I can't seem to change it, so until I do, it's only going to have a picture.
- The page is quite visually intensive which means it might take longer to load on slower browsers. If many people think it's loading too laboriously, let me know by commenting or e-mailing me, and I'll change it.
- The fancy little drop shadows at the edges of the main window, sidebar etc were acheived through using images that Internet Explorer 6 doesn't support properly. They work on Internet Explorer 7, Apple Safari, and Google Chrome, and they should display correctly in Mozilla too. If they don't show up, again, let me know. If it's because you're using IE6 or below, well, I don't know how to say this, but you should really get a better browser.
If you find anything else, please let me know!
