New theme

OK, I know it looks pretty much the same as the old one, but this one's easier to adapt and seems to be loading a lot faster than the theme I was using before. Just in case you're wondering, the theme is Mike Little's Journalized Theme Version 2, with a skin that I've copied and hacked to get the colours and placements that I wanted.

There are still a few minor changes to be done before it looks and acts as planned, but I'll have to sort them tomorrow. The "to do" list includes:

  • Add the link to the contact page Done (there's a link in the page nav)
  • Add the Copyright and Creative Commons statements Done
  • Add the Link Badges widget Done
  • Add the IYA link/logo Done
  • Add the Comment Ownership statement Done

For now it should all be working fine, but if there are any serious glitches, I'm sure you'll let me know.

    Slightly faster methinks, but I am still finding it little slow.

    Thanks for the feedback, folks.

    FWIW, I'm finding it fast in Firefox 3.0.10 and Safari 3.2.3, but crap (as usual) in IE7.

    So nothing new there, then. :mrgreen:
