jillapalooza.com got a makeover this weekend!! I coudn’t live without pink and/or stars any longer so here it is, Pink Stars 1.0!! I modified the header image to include the classic jillapalooza logo and I used The GIMP to make it fuzzy and give it a white shadow to match the stars. When I removed the default blog title/slogan that was in the theme it made my header skyline rocket to the top of the page, so I had to edit the margins in the style sheet, then change some of the code so it looked equally as good in IE as it did in Firefox.
Then I decided to upgrade my polls, Akismet spam filter and WPG2 plug-in which was a Bitch with a capital B. Now that the embedded page is a WordPress page and not an external .php page, it gave me all sorts of troubles. The gallery portion was all off centered and too large. I ended up copying my header/footer files into wpg2header/footer and that seemed to take care of the problem with centering. Then I cropped my header image and added a new style class so that my gallery started near the top of the page instead of half way down. It could look better, but who’s complaining? Still looks crappy in IE though, but who uses that anyway?
Here’s to semi-successful upgrades!! :D
Let me know what you think.
