Blog Layout Tweaks

Personal Blogs, Wordpress

The blog now has a new look and feel ! There is no major change and only the header layout is re-designed.

I always wanted to move the “Page” links on the sidebar and now it has a new place at the bottom of the header.

However I almost spent hours together for the right color combination of Header and menu containers. Even now the combination is kind of weird and I would request a creative mind to suggest a good color combination for the header.

Feel free to comment on the things you like and dislike about the blog layout.

    Here’re a few suggestions venu,

    take a look at the following 2 themes: (well worth the effort)

    http://www.obharath.net/blog/3columnk2/
    http://www.squible.com/

    try either of them. they’re both awesome… widget powered. 🙂

    Add mybloglog, twitter and meebo to your sidebar…

    and most importantly keep blogging… 🙂

    You also seem to use a lot of pictures in your posts. So monetise them using brightpic (http://www.britepic.com/)

    Thanks for your inputs Rohan.
    I guess the 3columnk2 is no longer compatible with wordpress 2.0. Squible is a nice theme and I have tried mods of this theme as well.

    As of now I am happy with the minimalistic them that I am currently on, except the header but I will resolve it soon

    I guess after moving the page menu from sidebar, I have now some space to add mybloglog and twitter to the sidebar.

    Never heard of britepic.. definitely will have a look at it. Thanks.

    After having a theme for so long, it kind of grows up on you…i understand! I advice a good header image… try this link for some stock free to use image and cut them for your use. http://www.sxc.hu/

    And, the freeze prob. i mailed you about is gone now…wht went wrng there?

    As much as I struggled with the colors, I am now struggling to find the right image. I am regularly checking sxc.hu and also deviantart for good images. but I need something light and which doesn’t look bad with a “repeat”. since the header is a 100% width box, finding the image is becoming more difficult 🙂

    Regarding the freeze, I don’t seem to have done anything. But I did ran html validation yesterday and there was one div end tag was missing. I am not sure if that fix fixed the freeze as well.
