    I was wondering if anyone could give me a few comments on my new design? - There is also a CSS switcher to change the style to your preferred colour!

    Thanks in advance :)

    Very nice. Will you ever release it?

    Release the CSS switcher? - I would be happy to if you think it would benefit people? - Although the code isn't mine, it's taken from various free scripts people have written.

    I'll see if I can put something together, and place it on the blog.

    Oh, additionally - Thanks for the email shadow, I would reply, however for some reason the contact form wasn't forwarding the sender's email address. I've fixed it now :)

    Neat stuff, looks good.

    Would be interested in how you got the buttons in your header.

    btw, I tried your links to alistapart and idontsmoke, got php errors.

    I might also post a tutorial for the buttons across the header. Thanks for the heads up about the links, I've sorted that out - Incompatible plugins I'm afraid :)

    That's awesome! I love how the image changes as well as the color.

    The font is a bit small on my resolution.

    Every looks good. Font is a little small, but it works for me.

    With the green header, the gradient you are using to make solid space on the left looks bad. The "landscape" is simple enough that you could probably get away with leaving it as a large image (keep the rolling hills going) and just don't include any "trees" near your name. That would work better I think.

    Kudos for a nice design. I like the way you are using the ie.css and firefox.css. In a perfect world one doesn't have to do this but when was anything perfrect :D

    Oh my that is a beautiful design. I have been scouring the internet looking for any information on how to add the nav tabs at the top.....nothing. That is my goal to provide a clean blog. So if you do have any tutorials on how its done fire away.

    Pleasant looking site, nice design.

    The font-size is defenitely too small. Never seen a site that has such a small font size as default. I had to 'ctrl-scroll' five times to get the size of this wp-forum!

    Looks great.

    i love the style switcher, and the comment count display.

    very-very similar to Michael's blog (much as i like yours, i had to add that for honesty sake.)

    the best repro i've seen.

    lovely headers too.

    and thank you for the style switcher tutorials.

    Thanks for the comments. Regarding the font size, is this a problem for everyone? - It looks fine on my PC, Firefox and IE.

    I'm going to write a tutorial on creating the tabs at the top of the page today, will post here when it's done.

    are you using 1.2.x?

    i miss being able to swap css files and bring the images along for the ride...

    : (

    yeah, fonts are fine (at default) in Safari, Moz and FF (mac)

    How big is your screen dappleyard?

    I'm looking with Firefox, XP on a 19" screen and it looks really small. Smaller and it will vanish :)

    My screen is the same, 19" and I'm on Firefox with XP. Could someone take a screenshot for me? - If you could mail it to me at 'david at ppleyard.org.uk', that would be great.
