New Theme – April 2010

I couldn’t help myself. I am using the 3.0 beta version of WordPress. It comes with a new theme that is pretty clean from an HTML standpoint. I haven’t made a theme in a long time, so I took the opportunity to build one up. Voila. It’s not done yet, but it’s a good start.

I have decided to use CSS3 in this theme which means IE is going to be sub-optimal. I suppose I made some IE specific fixes in a separate style sheet.

IE7 represents about 5% of my traffic, whereas IE8 is 23%. IE6 (BOO!) is just 2%. Firefox is the big dog at 44%, with Chrome+Safari bringing up the rear at 21% together. What does this tell me? That I am really close to not supporting IE6 or IE7, that’s what.

I think I will add additional fanciness in the coming weeks, but for now, here is what I have:

  • Fancy Font including shadows
  • CSS3 Curved Corners
  • CSS3 Drop Shadows
  • CSS3 Blockquote is angle

I clearly need to make the comments form prettier.Ā  More to come, but I am happy to take suggestions. šŸ™‚
