Temporary Website Design and Transition to ComixTALK

First off I'm sick so everyone bust out a little violin for me...

Anyhow I have to throw up a temporary website design because our existing one was incompatible with ComixTalk's recent upgrade to Drupal 5.1. Sometime over the summer I hope to have a great new design that also shows offwell some coming new features. In the meantime if you have any problems with your user account stuff (passwords, logging in, etc) or other stuff this week email me at xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com and I'll investigate as soon as I can (those of you who reported problems over the last week - please try again when you see the new temporary blue website design).

Also if anyone wants to spare a few brain-cycles on CSS wrangling I'll happily take fixes for the many oddities on this temporary design.

For the first time since the

For the first time since the switch to Drupal, I haven't had trouble logging in and staying logged in. Whatever switch you hit don't hit it again!

I know absolutely nothing

I know absolutely nothing about all these tech-y questions but one thing did strike me about the new design.

In the interests of promoting the Comixpedia wiki, shouldn't there be a prominent link to it in one of the main navigation bars?

There is one - it's the "library" button up there. Long story on why it's called that.

It'll depend on how the transfer goes as to whether there'll still be links to it up there when the new design rolls out later this summer. I'll still promote it no matter what though.

 

And thanks to everyone with well wishes. Doc appt today since I'm not getting better... Yell

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

Feel better, man.

Feel better, man.

Centering PW ads ...

Try adding this:

#ad {display: block; width: 720px; margin: 0 auto;}

(Seems to work OK in Opera 9, Firefox 2, IE something on Win.)

(Man, that is one fugly CSS file ... machine-generated?)

This is the offending rule:

border:#2763A5 solid 5px;

I don't know what Drupal does but I turned off a css caching thing to see if that goes away (I had already deleted that border line from the css files I had loaded today)

 

Thanks for the well wishes - I've got sandpaper for a throat right now though...

T he PW ads center in IE but not in FF.

THere's a border around the COMIXTALK logo and menu and search bar and I have no idea where it's coming from...
