Old and new design

Old and new design

I have finally been able to work on the design of my website.

People will probably scream when looking at the code but why would I spend 10 hours pulling my hair troubleshooting some nasty CSS when I can just do the same job in an hour using HTML?! […]
Anyway, I am quite pleased with the result and at least it looks a bit more professional than the previous one.

In term of usuability I did a slight change on the Permalinks, cleaned up some CSS issues, added the Search box on the right column  and  a “Share on Facebook” button below each post. I learnt a bit more about the WordPress Excerpt and More tag which I will now use for long posts.

I still have few things to do like editing the “About Me” page and think about how to integrate the blog with my personal website but overall I think it will be good enough for the time being.

I hope you like the new design, please let me know if you see something that is not working. I have already noticed that the rollover buttons don’t work on Opera/Windows mobile… Doh! :-(

    vraiment mieux comme ça ton blog, beaucoup plus lisible, digeste…!
    au fait pour les séances d’annecy, on se suit sur une majorité de films, sauf certains que je tiens vraiment à voir…”panique au village” par exemple et “studio d’animateurs” vendredi, avec comme intervenant philip hunt…

    Waow, comment t’as trop bien arrangé ton wordpress.
    Moi j’a pas réussi à changer le code.
    Super cette tipo, là-haut.

    Merci les teupo!

    en fait je ne me suis pas saoulé avec les CSS, j’ai exporté directement depuis photoposh et son compere Imageradi sous forme de table à la facon html ce qui va faire hurler les puristes du web ;-)

    Sympa d’avoir remarqué ma jolie typo car evidemment le choix n’a pas été facile. C’est Monoline script de chez Adobe/Monotype Imaging.

    Whoa, nicely improved. Love the uneven color, subtle.
