Notes on Site Design

In addition to moving from Movable Type to WordPress, I’ve redesigned the site (yet again). The current design is heavily inspired by Derek Powazek’s Web site which features the majority of all navigation at the bottom of the page. I’m going to try this layout for a while to see how it works for me.

I’ve very pleased with the way things look in Safari (an ACID 2 compliant browser), however, I didn’t do sufficient testing using FireFox and as a result, not everything renders correctly.

In addition, the theme system in WordPress forces me to break my pages up into chunks, and I tried to build the design in the chunks rather than as a single page which I later chopped up.

So let’s call this the Newburyportion open Beta. Things are guaranteed to change a bit before the final release…
