  • It’s a pretty funky fresh design, if I may say so myself.
    Notice the Haloscan comments system incorporation. Pretty slick, huh?
    Check out the CSS for any design questions. It’s pretty straightforward.

  • It doesn’t look good in Mozilla Firefox – the menu is out of place, and the calender is floating about in a very disorganized manner,

    well first off, its not valid XHTML, so yout mention of it being so on the page is incorrect.
    second, in firefox, something on the right side is screwed up, and not only is all your text squished together but that dashed line box overlaps some other elements.
    I dont have any design questions, but maybe you should have.

    pictures in posts overlap other posts. check out using a “clearer” div to eliminate that problem. Line spacing looks a little odd. Some lines appear spaced “normally” and others look like they are double spaced.
    Viewing with FF 1.0, the site appears off. The left menu sits down about 2 paragraphs from the top of the initial post.
    Maybe make the header with a transparent background versus the white background?

    I downloaded Firefox today, and it does look pretty crappy. The left randomly-rotated picture doesn’t show up, and the sidebar dashed outline is out of place (as mentioned above). Other than that, it’s OK. There’s a lot of nested DIVs and stuff, which Firefox might not be handling as well as IE.
    I hate to say it, but IE works better.
    Anyway, if you want to add Haloscan comments to your WordPress site but don’t know how, here’s how to do it:
    ‘);” target=”_self”><script type=”text/javascript”>postCount(‘<?php the_ID() ?>’);</script>
    This calls on the post number (the_ID) as the basis for the comments system. As you continue to post and your post numbers go up, so does the Haloscan commenting system. It’s a pretty nifty way to do it. The only drawback is when you’re managing comments in Haloscan, it doesn’t show the title of your post, just the post #.
    The price you pay, though, right?
    Speaking of price, through December you can get a full year hosted by Dreamhost with a free domain and WordPress already installed for you for a measly $9.37. Use code 777 at checkout (hooray for 7 year anniversaries!)

    There it is. Again, notice that Haloscan calls on <?php the_ID() ?> to differentiate between posts.

    “but IE works better”
    Tut tut tut…..
    Such profanity in forums which promote web standards 🙂

    padding: 0px;

    Errors….he wanted errors…..
    #Topimage {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0px;
    left: 300px;
    width: 422; <—————meters ? yards ?
    height: 274; <—————- inches ? miles ?

    padding: 0px;
    margin: 0px;
    background-color: transparent;
    /* background: url(‘images/titlerepeat.jpg’) 0% 0% fixed; */
    I can’t be bothered to cut paste and show the errors in your second chunk……..

    I believe the word you are after begins with an ‘S’ ?
