A few weeks back I found an old layout of my weblog again. Today I had some time to put it back up. Did the CSS again because of some markup changes (and I lost the original) and recreated some images. You can still select the old design: it’s marked “Readable.” I’m aware of rendering bugs in browser X and of possible ways to fix the problems in browser X; no need to comment on that. Thanks. Have fun.
Cool... always liked this one. :)
Haha, looks like something I could have smacked together like 2 years ago. And that headerfont, I have used it on like 10 designs(none published)
Just dont do one of those dark designs like Dustin Diaz, sorry, but I cant see the point of those. Is it like the new whitespace design?
it reminds me of the first time i saw your website... long ago :)
I always like this one.
I never understood why you moved away from this design. Glad it's back, nostalgic in a way :p
Cool beans. Nice update, or back-date. :)
I think you should support Internet Explorer. You'll probably find it really "cool" to not support the browser because it lacks support for some standards. However, you're always promoting accessibility, so support the damn browser. It's not that hard.
Really oldschool, I like it :-)
I wonder what you've changed, it never really worked in IE but now it's really messed up. On the other hand I agree with Kees, this is not the way to promote accessibility. No matter how bad IE is, you're doing the exact same thing know...
I like this design too, but it's completly broken under Firefox 1.0.7 : no header, menu items "inline" et "standards sucks" on the right; very strange (the browser cache is empty).
Anyway, please leave this design for a long time :)
I'm actually glad to see the old design again. I am wondering, though, why the page can't just have a conditional comment that contains a <link> element to an IE specific stylesheet. I realize it's proprietary to IE, but then so is the IE-specific styling. Is this omission an ideological stand, or just an oversight?
I always loved this design :) Didn't know it's that elitist and non-accessible though, I was rather surprised of the mess IE made of it.
What's the point in promoting XHTML and accessibility-friendly design and markup if it's just in theory and doesn't have the practical implication of going all the way and actually making stuff accessible?
Guido, you must be new here.
Anyway, given that I already had one Firefox specific workaround and one Opera specific workaround it seems only fair to also include an Internet Explorer specific workaround in the markup. I really dislike hacks in the markup though.
Really cool, I always liked this one ;).
How did you manage to lose the original; surely you do incremental backups of data and have it stored in one of those web archives.
Why is the logo not a link to homepage?
I've always liked this design better than most others I've seen on your blog. I'm very glad it's back again! :-)
Sweet comeback. The "Browse through posts: ..." link is a bit hard to read when hovering, otherwise great!
Love the new, erh, old design! I remember calling my girlfriend (well, ex-girl now) when you put up the new design telling her you did so..
Good to see the old back.
Thank you Anne, this takes me back... I used to love this design. Still do.
You do realise this one is actually far more readable, right ;)
Finally a readable version of your website ;-)
what… wait a minute! That was you. Clear now you brought down your white mask.
(just kidding ;)
I like it, though the "standards suck" guy seems to touch the text, which kind of bothers me. Apart from that, nice.
Hehe. I remember this layout, it was this way when I first saw this site. But didn't the guy say
CSS sucks before?
He did. Some things do change.
This design reminds me the days I thought you weren't a male, because of your first name :S
It does look a little funky with images disabled though...
Ah, just checking. I'm glad I didn't just dream CSS Sucks up.
And thanks for letting the previous style sit there as an alternative style. Nice.
Hadn't visited your weblog for some time... and was pleasantly surprised that you had the old design back.
And never mind that browser X.
You might start a new trend with retro styling, look different than most blogs and therefore more interesting.
