I switched back to a 2-column layout. If you are experiencing any weirdness in how it displays (e.g. on Mac’s), please let me know. Include your OS version and your browser version. Thanks!
Update: Other things I’m trying to achieve include changing “recent comments” on the main page to “recent comments and trackbacks” (any tips on how to do that?), using the “categories” function, and using a drop-down for the categories and archive months. Yes, I’m just stealing features from some of my favorite blogs. Oh, I’d also like to enable limited HTML in the comments, but I’m unsure how to do that. I know I could read around on the web and figure it out for myself, but I’ll start with the lazy approach: can anyone point me in the right direction?
Yo, George. I was wondering what was up. I’m on a Mac (10.3, running Safari), and what had been your middle-column still appears exactly where it had before — i.e., there’s a big blank space where your left column previously was.
The irony is that I was looking at your source code yesterday, contemplating a move to a 3-column format….
Never mind. It’s fine now.
The new layout looks good on Internet Explorer.
Thanks, KF and Chuck. I have one report of the latest IE on the lates Mac OS not displaying the column on the left. That’s why I’m worried.
Back in April, Liz posted her templates, and I used them to achieve the 3-column layout:
Hmm. Yeah, I just looked in IE, and the left column is not there…
Blue Robot has a good series of CSS column layouts (which I adapted for misc.):
FWIW, I like Recent Entries, Comments, Blogroll, etc. on the right rather than the left (as it is at the time of this comment).
For “recent comments and trackbacks”, and all sorts of fun with both, try MTSimpleComments. http://kalsey.com/2003/02/simplecomments/
(It basically allows you to group both comments and TB pings together, but still get access to each separately)
New year. Newish design. (Inspired by George, and spurred by inclinations toward change). I am saving screen shots of my blog this time….
