    Hey All :)

    Just wanted to post up my first template with WordPress! This
    was a job for one of our clients, St. Stephens Church. They wanted a nice clean and simple blog, that could support multiple users. The tricky part for me was telling WordPress which tabs to show based on who's blog you where reading. Also, displaying the recent posts for each individual author on their own page gave me some headaches, but again, came out on top :)

    There where a couple of work arounds I had to do manually, but other than that, using the template documents was a breeze. Great work WordPress!

    Tell me what you think. (be nice) ;)

    Check It!

    Personally, I'd try doing a fixed background and let the text boxes scroll over the duo-tone of the sunset.

    Actually I did think about that, but a lot of 'fixed' background tricks aren't supported throughout the popular browsers. I usually try to write browser compliant XHTML/CSS. A good thought though, thanks! :)

    It looks nice, an appropriate style. I'd go with the 'fixed' background as well. Also, the text for "Read the other person's blog" could be lighter.

    Yea, it is a little hard to read isn't it? I think I should fix that, lol. Thanks marko! :)

    I'd move the contact details in the banner to the sidebar, and have a simple banner up on top instead of the square red box with the title in it.

    It does not looks right.

    If the box was spread out to cover the top, it would look nicer.

    I'd also scroll the background because it is offputting having the background scroll, this would not be the case if you fix the background. Try it.

    Apart from that, its a good blog. Maybe use bigger font like someone else said.

    According to W3C specs, you can easily fix your background, and it's standards-compliant and validates:

    Here's the article on it.

    All you have to do is add "background-attachment:fixed;" in your CSS.

    ANy browser that *doesn't* support it would just show it like it is now.

    But nice site...very soothing and nice colors. Good job.
