New design

As you can see, I have updated the design on the blog. The previous one was decent, but I wanted something with a little more colors in it, a wider main column, and not so much space wasted on the top - more room for posts. I also wanted to go back to pure white as background color for the posts, as it looks better when you have images in the text with the same background color.
Other than that, I mostly used a picture of a Disciple (the one you see on your left) to get the colors (red, blue, white and black), and I think it turned out pretty well. Not too screaming colors, but not too dull either.

I didn't really want a logo in the original sense, but more like a small banner (like the one upper right corner) and some art on the sides. I also wanted a male that looked a bit like a wizard (right side), and a female to fill the wenches part. Both are Disciples (so not actually wizards), and I will focus a bit more on this career now that release approaches.

Other than all that it's not much that has changed. I have changed the blogroll a bit, making it a bit more personal by writing some stuff about how I see the blogs. Right now it's only the blogs that I read frequently (more like "this is who I am, and this is what I read" instead of mass linking), but I will see if that changes in the future - there are many blogs I want to support, even if I don't currently read them.

The design is done in and for Firefox (as it follow the CSS standard the best), but I have checked it in IE6 and it looks good (except some few details, but I didn't expect less). It should be near to perfect in IE7, but I can't check as I don't have it on this laptop.

I hope you like the design as much as I do, please leave a comment on what you think. Better or worse. Like that and don't like that. Your a genius vs were you drunk?


  1. Heya, just fyi, the script doesn't seem to work well in IE7. The page is only showing down to the archive section in the right hand pane, and IE does not allow of any scrolling.
    Srry to be the bringer of bad news. Gotta love the Disciple pics though!.

  2. Same in FF3! I can't see your main header graphic in the top-right column. I can hover over the area and it takes me to your home page, but it just looks like a blank space.

    I like the new theme though! :)

  3. See, this is why I hate Microsoft. What work in one browser don't work in the other.

    Anyway, I worked it out, and what you saw was probably the work in progress, Snafzg. Look exactly the same in FF3 and IE7 for me now. But of course I can't test it in EI6 since I had to upgrade (yeay for not being able to run multiple versions without using virtual computers...), so I can only hold my thumbs for it. But then, if you are using IE6 still, you probably deserve it.

  4. It looks great in FF3 now... however, your sidebar div is at the very bottom of your content div in IE6. Again, IE6 users deserve it though! :P

  5. Looks great in IE7 :-)
