While certainly not breaking any new grounds in terms of visual appealing effects – the site reboot brings just more structure to the previous site. Being happy with the two fixed columns layout, as wordpress plugins like the Sharaholic or the Syntax plugin didn’t like sitting within the old layout.
This I believe was a little problematic as content sometimes got pushed down past the right floating sidebar, leaving a huge gap before scrolling down and seeing the page still continued. But now it all sits nicely. Until Karl gets the shits with my site and redesigns it that is. =D
Obviously didn’t take Karl long to get annoyed with the complete lack of design skill of this version of the site and designed me something far more professional/eye-candy/appealing. http://darrennolan.com/?p=907
