Fluid design

I found the original fixed width css a little restrictive hence changed to percent widths.

Played around with the logo image, tried to use two small images only to find IE did not render it as intended. Decided just to increase the width of the original image and take a size hit.

Well both web site and blog are looking good, almost ready to publish.

Custom Theme

Created a custom theme to match the new site. Theme based on Blue Silence CSS, main changes added a logo and modified colour scheme.

Minor problem! Where and how to upload files.

Used media manager to upload files, custom_style.css placed into root (the default you see) referred to as the top-level folder (server internally named folder /public). Created a new folder (within root) named img for the css images.

Note 1: The custom theme page calls the css using: @import url(/public/custom_style.css)

Note 2: The css uses to following to pull in the image to the page: background-image: url(img/bg.gif);

Looks OK in IE6 and Firefox 2, needs to be fully tested.
