  • [QUOTE=H4Z3Y;35414667]I reckon the V should be moved to the right so that it's top right corner mirrors the top left of the Z, sorta like this (sorry for the crooked stroke): [img]http://f.cl.ly/items/420W3D2S470e0S1E172L/Screen%20Shot%202012-04-04%20at%202.22.44%20AM.png[/img] [editline]4th April 2012[/editline] (other than that it looks awesome) [editline]4th April 2012[/editline] (despite not knowing what it's for)[/QUOTE] he's got a point, your kerning looks off
  • [QUOTE=zerotwelve;35412917]The blog posts are definitely what doesn't look right, a border of some sort and possibly a different font would make everything look better[/QUOTE] [url]http://i.imgur.com/jpPew.png[/url] Does that look better to you?
  • [img]http://puu.sh/nQyl[/img] So I decided to dump the blur (too big a hack - resizing from top-left corner created some rather interesting jerking motions that I can only think would be caused by the resize event being called BEFORE it actually resizes, so I fucked it off) and make it into a window style. I just finished the tab selector style for it too, at least for left-mounted tabs (I'll have support for left, top and bottom, but left is easily the hardest) Once I've converted the tab selector into a functioning widget, I'll start on a custom scrollbar too. I haven't had this much fun in ages :D Also, I just installed all the browsers again (FF11, IE9, Opera 11.62) and tested - had to change some code to use JQuery instead of native to get it to work in IE9, and added a background fallback for browsers that don't support multiple background images or linear gradients too (since IE9 doesn't - IE10 apparently does), but it works in all four now and looks fine. Testing in Firefox also fixed a bug with the tabs being the wrong height in non-Chrome browsers, as I wasn't manually specifying the height. Chrome just happened to have it right.
  • A friend of mine has this facebook page where he posts a fact every day (Ronan's Interesting Fact of the Day) and I think it could be a good idea for a site, given that all the other 'daily facts' sites have shit design and aren't nice to use. What do you guys think of something simple like this: [img]http://i.imgur.com/PhHHbl.png[/img] [url]http://i.imgur.com/PhHHb.png[/url] (bigger) I think it would be quite easy to make it nice and responsive because it's so simple, and I think I'll make it so that the orange can be changed to other nice pastelly colours

  • [url]http://clockler.com/ui/[/url] The code (as in the JS) is untidy as fuck right now but it's nice and usable (I always worry about people thinking my code is bad holy shit) and I didn't link the PT fonts from Google Fonts but w/e you get the point, right? Also, anyone got any ideas or inspiration for nice scrollbars? I'm pretty sure I know how I'll do it code-wise but I just can't think of a good and fitting style for it. I was actually thinking that when I put content into it I could just avoid scrollbars entirely and instead use carousels where there's a selection of items to pick that I don't want to display all at once.

Info on what you were doing? I've only seen this once before and it was because I was doing something wrong.
  • [QUOTE=KmartSqrl;35428524]Stack trace? Info on what you were doing? I've only seen this once before and it was because I was doing something wrong.[/QUOTE] Fixed it by doing, err, something. Not sure exactly what. Stack trace was huge, and it resolved itself before I got around to redirect it to a file. With some luck, it won't happen again. If it does, I'll make sure to get the stack trace. In other news, I'm working on a [url=http://0x10c.com/doc/dcpu-16.txt]DCPU[/url] emulator in coffeescript. Not much to show yet, but it's already partially working.
  • Had a week of Wordpress at work which was kind of cool given that I'm a little bit of a masochist. But seriously wordpress is shit and I hate everything about it. Also bbpress is fucking terrible

  • [QUOTE=Bambo.;35438251]What are your thoughts of Obtvse?[/QUOTE] had a look at the code wasn't impressed [editline]6th April 2012[/editline] mind you, this was way back when it first came out. It looks like it's improved somewhat since [editline]6th April 2012[/editline] also work uses wordpress as a cms, rather than strictly a blog so something as simple as obtvse wouldn't cut it anyway
  • Absolutely positioned elements inside relatively positioned elements are just about as under-rated as negative margins.
  • Speaking of Wordpress. Time to hack in a poll-function in. Good lord what have I gotten myself in to.

  • So is the site that I quoted, would the images etc been made in photoshop? Like the background and the boxes for writing and all? Or is that all code? I want to make a simple little site for a portfolio

I want to make a simple little site for a portfolio[/QUOTE] Yes, they've probably been made in Photoshop, at least the "ribbons". Shadows and borders, though, are pretty easy to do with CSS3 nowadays. [editline]6th April 2012[/editline] [img]http://www.gabrielecirulli.com/p/20120406-010139.png[/img]
  • The whole thing is just a mock up in Photoshop. As well as shadows and borders, even ribbons and stitches can be easily done with CSS3 and other trickery. It's a lot easier to do things by images, but a lot more functional to do it in CSS. Try following some tutorials like [url=http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/tutorials/complete-websites/design-and-develop-a-complete-website-a-tuts-mini-series-pt-1/]this series[/url].

Thanks man, I have been looking for a tutorial on how to make an actual decent looking website. Even in college the lectures on web design, the lecturers website looking like shit and so did the sites we made, but it gave is an idea of how to make sites. Hopefully this tutorial will really help me out, thanks man!
