I’ve played about a bit with Climb to the Stars and Digital Crumble. It’s nice to dip one’s hands in a little HTML, CSS and PHP every now and again.
So, what have we got?
Digital Crumble has a brand new design. Whiter than the last one, but with enough pink to make me happy. (I customized it just a little.)
As for Climb to the Stars, the sad state of my sidebars had been bringing me down for months, so I finally decided to do something about it. I found a tutorial for adding a fat footer to Thesis and tried it out. I have to say that one thing I like about the Thesis theme I’m using here is the number of tutorials lying around to make just about any customization you can think of.
So, a lot of stuff that used to clutter up the sidebars is now in the fat footer at the bottom of each page.
While I was at it, I decided to have only one sidebar instead of two, and cleaned up the navigation bar at the top (most of the extra stuff is now in the footer). I also found a tutorial for moving the search form into the site header (and out of the sidebar!)
I had to fiddle around with both tutorials (mainly the CSS) until I got something I liked. I hope you’ll like it too!
