I love it! The only thing that looks out of character is the motion blur under the site name in the header image.
*laughs* Well, we’ll just say that’s for me then. XD
It’s very pretty. The font for the sidebar headers looks great, the way it is pulled down extra-tight on top of the content box underneath, even with decender letters like “g” overlapping. Very cool. I also like the tiny 4-square bullet icon you use by the post titles. I like how your post meta info is very small under each post instead of cluttering the title/content area: puts the focus on the writing. Colors are great, love the deep green, tan, and what would you call the color behind your post titles?
This is the first I’ve seen of the Password Protected posts with the login right in the post. I knew you could pw protect a post, but did you do something special to insert the login box then-and-there?
I agree with the first critique, the motion blur on the blog name looks out of place. Did you want it to look more like dripping/liquid? Currently it looks sort of like a celtic NASCAR. 8)
Dgold, thanks for the thorough critique! It means a lot to me. 🙂
As for the password protection login…that actually isn’t the login for users. I just added a password for that entry. Guests can’t login to that section with their usual password; they’d have to get the correct one from me. The subject of that entry was a bit personal, and while I still wanted it online for reference and such (and to keep it out of my way in my admin panels), I didn’t want everyone getting to it.
That would be nice, if out of default, a certain level of users’ passwords worked there, while non-users and lower level users’ passwords wouldn’t work. I remember there was a plugin for assigning certain posts and categories to user levels (very handy plugin, indeed!), but the last time I used it was during WordPress 1.2; I don’t know if there’s a 1.5 version, and I can’t say I’ve looked. But it did exist at one time! If the feature you spoke of is of some interest to you, you might give a look around for it. 🙂
As for the motion blur on the text, I’m keeping it, mainly because I like it and I’m a stubborn ass. 😉 I did it the way I wanted it. There were other techniques I tried, some probably more preferable to others’ tastes, I suppose, but I went with what I liked, for whatever reason. 🙂
Thank you again for the thorough reply!
