For a while I been using images and very weird code to make all my designs have rounded corners. I have ditched that and moved onto CSS3. Most of my visitors are on either Firefox or Safari so I don’t expect this to impact a lot of you. For those on IE7 and below (Down with IE6).. I am sorry. It was nice while it lasted!
The main change to the entire theme is that the rounded features are all done with CSS3. The header that now separates each blog post has more detail. One of the cool features now that instead of the ‘Page Navigation’ showing up in the box itself, it shows in it’s own tab that is “hooked” on to the blog header part. This goes the same for pages where the original creation date, modification date, author, and ‘Edit’ link (For Admin Only).
In this redesign however, I did find a few WordPress functions that I think need modifying. Very minor changes to their use and maybe at lease one more. That being called ‘the_page_number’ so I can output the current page number in a tab. Also some images/icons are going to be replaced with new and improved versions.
My header will not work and I made the index page very simple as I do not have enough time right now to finish. So we are not 100%, but like 99.8% done.
I like to thank Andres Armeda (@dremeda) for helping me through the really tough CSS code that I needed help on stuff I could not figure out. I have never been very good at CSS, but I think I got it after everything has been rewritten from scratch — including the XHTML code. The Firebug Mozilla Firefox plugin also helped. If you never used it before.. get it here. Well worth installing if you are a WordPress developer – theme or plugin.
Enjoy the new design!
