The new layout theme

So we got kind of tired of the old theme. If you liked it, well, sorry. We’re going to try this out for a little while. However, please do let me know if you spot any problems with the site under this new theme, and I’ll try to fix it up as quick as possible.

This new theme does provide a few new features, though, such as the mini-nav bar at the top of each page. For now I’ve built in links that will let you quickly search for posts that have either videos or images in them, as well as a link to the Brainfarts Gallery.

Also, I’ve created a nifty little image randomizer for the title bar there. However, I don’t have any images to feed it at the moment. If you have something you think would look good there either post it in the comments here or email it to me, and I’ll throw it in the rotation. Please just be sure that it has at least the width and height as this image.

    When I click that button on the upper right that says “link” I can access everyone’s credit card numbers.

    Yeah, that’s a feature, not a bug. ;)

    Serously, though, it’s there so that you can always have a place to copy and paste a link for the page you are looking at. I guess it’s not terribly useful, though. Can you think of something better to replace it with?

    Also, Mark, hook me up with some properly sized versions of your pretty photos for the title bar, eh?

    Each time I click the button, the housing prices in the Bay Area should drop by 100$.

    Make it so.

    By the way, is it possible to make the even-numbered comments have a different background. It’s freaking me out that they are the same color as the background of the rest of the website.

    Posting another comment to bring balance to this page.

    Hahah, well, I’ll see what I can do.

    Looking at the source, I think you would have to add an “even” entry to the stylesheet at

    http://www.brainfarts.org/blog/wp-content/themes/dark_maple/style.css

    But, if it turns out to be a pain in the butt, nevermind.

    Properly-sized, huh? I’ll see what I can do….

    Yeah, I’ve done that Mike. I made a comment on the wrong post. I’ll copy it over here.

    “Does adding the extra border satisfy your OCD Mike? If not, could you suggest an RGB hex value for a color that you think might work?”

    How about

    .even { /*alternate comment colors*/
    /*background-color: #FCEDD6;*/
    background-color: #FFE1B3;
    border-top: 1px solid #a87040;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #a87040;
    margin: 0;
    padding-left: 8px;
    padding-right: 4px;
    }

    Hmm, decent, but at least on my monitor the colors seem a tad too similar. Maybe we can brighten up the second color just a tad?

    Some other options:

    #F2DFC2
    #FFEBCC
    #F2DBB6
    #FFE6BF

    Well, that worked, but this won’t…

    Posting those two URLs in the same same comment doesn’t work for some reason.

    Odd. I’ll take a look. Hmm, do embeds still work?

    Hm, I’ll have to see about making the comments a tad wider.

    Anyway, I kind of like this color. Do you think I should leave on the second border, though?
