Eightface

Firefox 1.5 Released

Firefox 1.5 is available for download now. I advise upgrading, so you can experience eightface in all it’s glory. For some reason the nav bar on the site wasn’t working properly in earlier versions.

So long Bastard

eightface.com - Tool

Changes are afoot at eightface, I can’t help it. This week, we bid farewell to Bastard, the white grungy/erasure theme that landed the site on DesignShack and CSS Beauty. In all honesty, it was just supposed to be a place-holder design while I dug around inside the WordPress guts. The new layout is called Tool (feedreaders, this would be your cue to launch that rusty browser). It’s based on the Bastard, so there may be odd remenants kicking around for a little while.

Most of the template is in place, the only major thing left is the footer, right now it looks kind of flat and ugly. Parts of the design were heavily influenced by Matt Brett’s current layout; mostly the nav-bar and some of the CSS hover stuff (you could say the grunge, but that’s my territory too). The nav-bar is all one image, that’s uses some clever positioning via styling.

The template started on a whim yesterday afternoon, but there have been a few other major changes over the last week. I’ve introduced a portfolio page, mostly to figure out what I’ve actually produced. I experimented with the live archives plugin, but find that it chugs a bit. The other major change was replacing Jerome’s keyword plugin with Ultimate Tag Warrior. It has a lot of nice-friendly options built-in.

WordPress plugin roundup

A couple of interesting WordPress plugins that I’ve come across in the last day or two: LightPress is a front-end for WordPress that activates as a plugin and aims to speed up database queries and make a clearer distinction between program logic and layout. Edit Comments allows you to give a short-window to allow commenters to changes to typos, etc.
