Skinny skin (6 posts)

    My style/layout has been slowly progressing to the level it is at now. It is a lean and skinny style, I hope you like it. Comments are very welcome.

    I'm using the page-feature of the alpha release of WP1.3 (1.3a4) for my contact and about sections. For the moment I'm very happy with this alpha release. I will be leaving for a year in January and I wonder if I should rely on an alpha release of the WP software to run my website, without my administration :). Any fine thoughts on this issue?
    I'm currently in the process of turning my style into a theme, WP1.3 style. I'm still getting the hang of things but as soon as it's rounded up, I'll post the archive here.
    Regards,

    I don't know that I'd be completely comfortable with leaving this type of website for a year, but if it's working, it's working.
    By the way, I'm not sure it's a great idea to display your ISP login settings (help.jpg) on the Web. Sure, they might not be able to figure out your password, but tempting fate is ... tempting fate.

    By the way, the site looks nice. I think the text is a little too light for ongoing reading, but otherwise, nice job.

    Thanks for your comment. I see your point with those details. Even if people won't be able to find out about my password, it's still inviting spam to my mailbox and quite the contrary of what I argue for on the 'contact' page. I have replaced the values with dummy ones.
    With regards to the light text. I personally feel that it's more easy on the eye when reading text with a big line-height (200%). I'll ask other people for their opinion as well though, and see what they say.
    I'm secretly hoping for a stable release with the page-feature before January. It's not that I won't be able to administer the page at all. But when I'm on holiday that's not what I want to do all day ;) I'll be publishing on the blog though, so at least I can keep an eye on it.

    What's the page-feature you're talking about?
    btw, nice clean look.

    Making pages instead of new posts, i.e. content that isn't syndicated and that isn't featured on the front page of the Blog when it's released. You just link to these pages using the querystring. I use this feature for the "contact" and the "about" pages.
