Anyone who visits my blog on a regular basis will have noticed a few changes to it this week. While it wont win any awards I think its an improvement.
For anyone interested here are a few of the changes made.
New Design And Colour Scheme
Being slightly colour blind I will never be a designer but even I could tell that the old colours were not too easy on the eyes. So to improve things I added a nice image of a landmark from home and changed all the red bars to a more neutral blue.
This is something I have been planning a very long time. Finally the forms have some style rules.
This is probably the biggest change for end users. If you visit the website now from a mobile device you now get a dedicated jQueryMobile layout. Better late than never :-)
While I am not currently using it, I did update the main layout template to the html5 doctype. In the future I plan to introduce more html5 into my code.
Fusebox5 -> FW1
This wont be visible to end users but my more technical visitors will appreciate this. This site now runs on Sean Corfields FW1.
During this change I rewrote nearly every single major section to bring my code up to current standards including. All my spaghetti code has been replaced with MVC separation layers and the procedural methodologies I employed have been replaced with Object Orientated methodologies.
As with all websites there is always more to do. My future plans for this site include:
- More testing and bedding in of the new code.
- New code colouring for sql code blocks
- Creating an image gallery
- HTML5 design components
- More jQuery
- More refinement of the styling
So here it is. I hope everyone likes the new look.
