It’s getting close

Sunday post was already in the can when I woke up at 6:00a this morning. So I took advantage of having the morning to myself and got to spend a solid 4 hours working on the new donburnside.com.

By the time it’s finished it’s going to be the best parts of the theme I use here (and every where else), plus the good parts from the existing donburnside.com theme and the new header. Here is how it is going to work out.

  • All blog pages and posts will be like this, complete with 2 sidebars
  • All pages will have extra width and 1 single sidebar
  • New footer section using a similiar layout that I did on the Implementing Scrum

I’m getting the colors nailed down as well. Overall, I’m very pleased with how it’s shaping up.

The header and body

I really like how the tabs on top turned out. Too bad they won’t look that cool in IE. Oh well, just more motivation for people to switch to FF/Safari/Chrome I suppose. Maybe IE8 will support the border-radius css style.

The footer

I already have the database almost converted as well as you can see from the archive links above.

Feedback, as always, is appreciated
