Working on my first theme
And I would like some reviews or suggestions. Here's what I have so far. http://preview.butterfly-dreams.info/fiction/ and i'm not even close to being done. I just started to learn php and css so I don't know all the codes yet. So what do you think? good so far? It gave me a lot of headache trying to figure this stuff out. lol!
I like the colors and the background pattern.
The layout itself isn't positioned correctly in Firefox though and horizontal scrolls.
Skins made by Kali are no longer supported!
I think you need more padding in your boxes. And your "Featured Stories" box isn't lining up with the others in that column in FF. I don't know if that's deliberate or accidental though. I'd probably take the "Browse by:" out of the unordered list.
I agree with Tammy about the padding. And you should increase the line-height. Browser default is 1.3 em (approximately), but it looks like you changed yours to be even less. I usually set mine at at least 1.5em. It makes your pages easier to read.
Congratulations on creating your first layout. But ask you know with websites everything is a "work in progress". My comment about it is mostly about the font. I know it's probably only a matter of preference, but putting everything in that italic type font is a bit hard on the eyes. The line spacing is really narrow and with the flourish-like font it just looks like one massive clunk. (I have trouble reading when folks don't put spaces between paragraphs, what can I say I have "old-ish" eyes).
Mucking around in eFiction since circa 2001 (ver. 1.0)
Now running v.3
yeah I really to change the style of text but I don't know really know how.
You've probably got a font-style: italic in there somewhere.
