    My Notes - This is my Third(ish) site design. I would like to upload my second(ish) one but I lost the files. If you haven't noticed I like green Much more optimized than my first one(over 90% smaller after compression).

    Not bad. Here's some CC though.


    Set an EM font value on the body, then everywhere when you need a font-size set it using a percent %. That's good for accessibility.

    You have a pointless text indent on your h1. I always try to avoid text indent to force something off the screen. I usually just stick the contents inside spans and set them to display none;

    Code:
    h1 span {
      display:none;
    }
    Try and use shorthand CSS.

    Code:
    padding-left : 20px;
    padding-top : 10px;
    padding-bottom : 15px;

    Translates to;
    Code:
    padding: 10px 0 15px 20px;
    Good start though

    Please tell me you're colourblind

    Try www.colourlovers.com for some palette ideas. Neutral for background, bright colours for small elements like URLs, possibly headers.

    Looks good in terms of functionality and code though.

    @Adam
    I actually had to look up what EM is because I had no idea what it was. After some research I see know what it is and why people use it.

    @Skype
    Thanks for the site, my monitor is messed up though so where many may see dark green, I see a near black so never expect my colors to come out 100%.

    Working on a new one but I always get stuck at header design


    New one is up. If you can't tell the text in the paragraph can go over the corner fold image, anyway to prevent this, ie have it wrap?

    Quick question:
    I have been messing around with jQuery and JavaScript for the past few days and it has got me wondering, would it be better to focus on JS/jQuery, PHP or both?

    I have to say I'm a jQuery addict. But don't confine yourself to just one language, do a bit of everything, it'll make you a much more well rounded developer.

    I was planning on learning them both, I just forgot to put 'first' in my post.

    In that case, PHP.

    Going to read up on PHP and WP to see if I can get this converted before June.

    You pretty much don't need any knowledge of PHP to convert a theme to WP. WP is just cut and paste.
