I have a new Journal Layout
Please everybody, take some time to look at my new layout. Click here to see it. I need input, kids. Lots and lots of input. And you have to point out bugs, and browser incompatability. Because I've only tested on whatever version of IE I'm using. Help me out here kids...

I only got to see the black curvy borders around the posts, due to the fact it took so blimmin' long to load :)

Probably not your fault, but there you go.

Well, as it goes, the upload on the files was about 2mb. But on any given page, you'd never see more than a fifth of that, and even that is highly unlikely. It's all to do with how I did the comment links, as it goes... :o)

Seen it all now.

Too much white. Needs more colour. That's about the only problem with it.

In other matters... Ben Olding has got into the Thame Gazette would you believe. They're hailing him as a hero for that site of his ;)

I shall scan it and upload it tomorrow if I remember.

So I heard. My mother told my siblings not to tell me, in case I went and did something evil to it. I might :o)

Do it! I have no idea who this guy is but sabotaging websites in the public eye is fun, speically if they are getting increased hits at the time.

DOES load slow, I have to say, but it looks bloody cool - I like it the colour(s) it is.

I'm using IE 5.5, didn't have any problems. Just slow. ;-)

I'll work on it - the problem is, every post with a different number of comments loads a new .png image to represent this - and they're hardly the smallest of images. Plus, the header image is quite large. I may sacrifice some detail for some speed and make it a .gif, or sacrifice a LOT of detail for tons of speed and turn it straight to a .jpg...

Hmmmm ... well, considering the sorts of images you're working with, losing detail shouldn't detract too much from a really nice design (in theory, without seeing it) ... I mean, it's definitely not in the top ten 'god this page takes forever to load' category anyway ... ;-)

The problem is that the simple images aren't taking up much space at all. As far as I can tell, the border around the post takes up 4kb. The problem arises because of minimum cluster size and such, but I thought that for downloads, that wasn't taken into account. What takes ages to load (and slows the rest down with it) is the header image (which doesn't need to be so detailed, although I'd like it to be) and the comments image-array, many of which are loaded on any given page. The solution might be to reduce the posts per page, and thus the number of different comments buttons that need loading...

Should I nod knowingly and say 'ah' or just say 'I dunno'? *cheerful grin*

Well either is perfectly acceptable :o)

I think it looks rather snazzy :o)

Ta. I like it, certainly. Especially what happens to the comments button when you hit about 35 comments. You'll have to load the images to find out what that is :o)

i'm just a stranger who happened along.

for what its worth. i was impressed. :)

Thanks. As was I (naturally)...
