Relayouted comments

Since many people seem to like the alternating layout of my blog main page (which I actually reused from the who's who page from an IRC channel website I made) and comments looked like crap here, I decided to update their layout. I had to make a small modification to the feedback plugin to distinguish between odd and even comments but it works now. I still haven't decided exactly how I want to do the alignment and the borders and stuff, but I'm outta time now. At least it looks way better than it did.

Edit: I've been playing around some more with titles, borders and alignment and dropped the alternating comments thing for now. Expect some more changes soon.

Progress

Making some good progress here. Comments should be working by now. I heavily modified the interpolate_fancy plugin to properly support nested conditions, so I can very specifically control how the page looks. This was needed to properly support all the different sitations concerning comments and trackbacks.

I've also been working on the category list at the top. It's fully working now, but I only have a real "blog" category, all others are just for testing... I have also had to heavily modify the categorylist plugin to support a horizontal list of categories. The adapted version is way more flexible and should probably suit any layout thinkable.

I have tried making the list of categories only 1 level deep (so changing when you navigate through the list), but that seems harder that I would want. I've also found the "menu" plugin, that does something similar, but it looked scary and complicated. For now, I'll settle for a list of /all/ categories, might look at the menu plugin later on.

Oh, and don't mind all the foo bar flierp blerf asdf posts, I'll remove them when I'm done testing :-)

Intial layout

Here's a first try for a layout for my new blog. While Brenda keeps complaining about the lack of colours in my old blog, I still like the formal style it has. For this new blog, I decided to take black and white as primary colours for the same reason.

After some toying around and fighting with CSS I managed to produce this. All positioning and layouting is done with CSS: The only HTML attributes I've used are "class" and "href" (and no tables either). So far, I've tested this on Firefox 1.0.6, Maxthon 1.3.3 and IE 6.0. If something looks broken for you, just comment here.
