Fluid2 theme

I just realised that I am avoiding my own website, because I don’t like the looks anymore.

I’m actually sick and tired of the red in the Anaconda theme I used, and heartely fed up with the whole kaboodle around to. You can’t really customise it easely, so I am going to change theme. There are some nice features in it, but it is time to move on.

The latest theme I’m trying is the Fluid theme, made by Kaushal Sheth. I think it’s much more readable now, the font seems bigger, the layout better spaced.

Some things that need improvement :

  • One thing that happened is that my sidebars have switched around, so sidebar 1 shows up on the right and vice versa. No big deal.
  • In FireFox, the menu bar on top is not completely visible, the pages don’t all show or only part of them… that will need to be fixed. In IE6 it shows up better, but still not correctly – the ‘second’ pages are shown, not the ‘first’ pages.
  • Both in IE and Firefox the posted comments appear in a ridiculously small font that is totally unreadable. I’ve already tried editing the comments section in the style.css file, but to no avail.
  • I don’t know if it’s the MCE editor or not, but paragraphes are all put together, no empty lines between them. Annoying. Switching to another solved this, so I guess it’s the theme.

Some things I’ve already changed :

  1. Personal Header image
    You can put your own header image by editing the style.css file and going to the #hdr section. You can then replace the current hdrgrn.jpg with a jpg file of your own choosing.
    Remember : jpg file must be 200 pixels max in height. And if you don’t want it to repeat, on the same line change “repeat-x” to “no-repeat”. As for the background color, I changed it to black

    #hdr {
    padding: 0;
    width: 100%;
    background: url(images/personalheader.jpg) no-repeat 0 bottom #000000;
    height: 200px;
    }
