Face Lift

Well, I finally got tired of looking at that (very appropriately-named) "Minima" template, and have bitten the bullet in terms of wrangling the CSS for a new appearance at Teh Portly Dyke.

Please notice that the new template has tabs at the top linking to stuff like my Comment Policy, my favorite posts so far ("Best of"), and I actually went through the whole blog and got everything labeled, so you can use the labels links at lower right to see stuff that you may be interested in.

I haven't figured out how to code this template for fluid width yet (it's an XML template, rather than HTML), so bear with me a little while longer -- it will remain in 800 width for a while, and try as I might, I can't find the right line to adjust the size of the text in the right sidebar -- I'm sure that I'll find the solution in one of the 3 cubic yards of CSS books I have in my office --but as Aragorn would say: Today is not that day.

Hope you enjoy the new look. Please report any problems to me via comments.

Guess it's that kind of week out there, eh?

It's purple, so I approve. Heartily.

Vurrah nice!! Purple is a good color (and, no, I'm not just agreeing with Jen. I've always been a fan of Teh Purple. In fact, I once owned a pair of purple suede dress shoes - and a pair of burnt orange ones, but that's neither here nor there.).

But ... no nested comments!?!?

Portly, the blog looks great (though I have no idea what "TWH" stands for).

However, the links in the "Best of Portly" don't seem to work. For some reason I get a "blog not found". (the ones at the end, the spiritual ones, the links have a double "http://", just so you know)

marytracy9 -- Thanks for the tips on the Best Of page -- apparently Blogger's editor had been "helpful" by adding some trash characters to the links (and I didn't check them -- bad, bad Zoot!)

TWH stands for "Titty-Wrap Hug", where my ample bosom sort of enwraps the hug-ee in a warm and comforting embrace. In fact, you have one on credit right now, for helping me out with those broken links, if you want it. ;)
