Well, I have done it again, a slight redesign to the eye, but a major overhaul on the backend. I have pretty much converted all what once were graphics into text with CSS. I have been working on this for a few weeks now and when I get a few minutes here and there, I edit it and make improvements. I still have a few pieces (like getting the blog tab to stay highlighted when it should) to put in place to complete it, but it is mostly done. Some minor logic changes and I will be set. It was time to shed some of the graphic weight (tabs, right column bars, etc) and control to gain a more lightweight, easy to manage web design.
web sites that I found useful when re-designing jappler.com:
- W3 Schools (all my syntax questions answered)
- A List Apart (CSS nav bar)
- WordPress Codex (all WordPress template help)
