phoat.com v0.9... Ok guys, I'm almost done with my blog design and need the praise/critisism to keep me going.
Right now, only the index is styled. There is no working photoalbum on the site yet, the recent photo thumbnails are manually put there so i can get the layout down. I'm still looking for a photolog thingy, (besides the obvious choices of Pictoralis and iPAP - both of which i couldn't get to work). I'm going to try my hand at implementing a simple photoblog that is integrated into the upload page in WP's admin. If anyone wants to help, contact me through the site. My email is posted somewhere.
This will break in IE browsers less than version 6 as i haven't applied any box model hacks yet. It should work in Mozilla/Firebird. I would appreciate testing on other browsers, especially on the Mac.
The image next to the navigation is random, so refresh a few times and the picture will change. Originally, I had wanted to associate a different pic with each day, but, I'll leave that for v1.5 :)
Inspiration came from a lot of different places. I'm sure you all can spot where i got the date/header design from. Some open source pics and a bunch of vintage postcards inspired the rest.
As you all can see, I love Century Gothic. I don't know why... I just do. I'm probably going to get alot of critisism for this, but i designed this site for resolutions 1024x768. So if you run your monitor at less than that, prepare for some horizontal scrolling.
Like I said, I would appreciate any and all comments, praises, and flames but I prefer mostly praises :P
