Big changes are afoot, and amongst other things I made a hasty return to blogging last month. Please avert your eyes from the many things which are currently a bit shabby about this blog. I’ll get around to fixing them soon.
UPDATE: Feb 2007, moved to WordPress.
Here’s a list of things I should get around to changing. If you spot any other imperfections please leave a comment and I’ll add them to the list: The design was rushed and overall I’m not happy with it. It’s not well thought out good design, and it’s not deliberately simple. Needs attention. I’m keen to try MeasureMap to track traffic around my blog, but it seems to be delayed into Beta. I hope to install it asap. Comment
textareatext is too small to read it as you type. Looks like the same can be said of
The ‘post’ and ‘preview’ comment buttons have a ? either side of them for some reason. Why not just have a live comment preview? When you post a comment you need to refresh your browser to see it on the page. Is this a known issue with other MovableType blogs? It happens on my wife’s and my brother-in-law’s too, both of which are on the same installation as this blog. Comments aren’t well formatted. Enable Gravatars on comments strong text shouldn’t be a different colour to plain text. Perhaps a search function. Live search? The main nav is too spaced out in Internet Explorer. Links to category and date archives have .html on the end. I’d like to get rid of this unneccesary cruft. I should put section headers within the main nav.
