So, there are a few things around here that are still a bit.. erm.. broken. In the spirit of transparency, and in case I’ve missed anything that you’ve spotted, here is everything that will be fixed or changed in the coming week, fortnight.. month?
- Archive page – this will be slightly different from the previous one, depending on what plugins I can get to work
- Comments – still some work to do on these, I’d like to be able to highlight MY comments, and I still think it needs some tidying up. I’d definitely like to “pretty” up the comment form itself.
- The “First Visit/Previous Posts” area still isn’t quite how I want it. Might need to span both columns to stop it wrapping at smaller window sizes.
- Search results need work, mainly showing more, truncated, results on a page. Also need to decide whether to lose the sidebar for ‘single’ pages (a decision that rolls out across other areas of the site).
- More whitespace between the columns? Maybe.
- The link colours still elude me, I quite like the contrast between the main content links and the sidebar area.
- Blogroll needs a drastic update!
- CSS issues – a variety of annoyances thanks to IE collapsing margins, most notable in the comments (the numbers are cropped in half).
- Double-checking the banner is properly centred!
- A “go” button on the search box at the top of the page will be added.
Suggestions are encouraged as ever. I write the content for me, but how the site used is solely aimed at you, dearest reader. And no, I’m not changing the font (it’s been this one for AGES, that bit didn’t change!).
Of course all of this is simply procrastination, but I figure if I post this list I might actually get some of the items fixed. Maybe.
In the meantime, I’m sure the Post of the Week site will keep me busy.
