New and Improved
August 17th, 2014

A handful of major improvements were completed to this website over the last couple days. Mainly, this site is now utilizing a fluid layout.  Meaning it can be easily viewed from any size device (mobile phone, tablet, desktop) without any significant complications. You could even test it out now if you wish.  Just drag one side of your browser window and watch the website try to fit the content within the limited confines of your newly resized browser. It’s fun.

Along with the fluid layout, I changed the DocType to HTML5 which was pretty easy to do. HTML5 will allow for me to utilize a whole new bag of tricks. In theory that is. Some other minor fixes or changes are as follows; New layout for the comment section. Comment section now employs Gravatar (Globally Recognized Avatars). Modified the look of the meta section at the bottom of each post. Added a share button section, within the individual posts (I didn’t want to clutter the main blog). Fixed a few bugs that were appearing with the Highslide JavaScript code. Added a subtle divider line to help separate the meta section from the main post. Changed the Contact page to be uniform with the rest of the site. Changed the Portfolio page to be uniform with the rest of the site. Set up a site index for Google. Hmmm…

I have a much shorter list of things to do now. This makes me happy. Next step: Add content. :)
