New layout

I've been tooling around with it for days, but I think I'm done now.

The end result is a layout with scrolling divs, three images, and the newest thing in modern browsering: RGBA colors.

As a result, lots of people can see my page, but only the folks using Firefox 3 and Safari 3 will be able to really read my content.

I would never do this kind of thing with a community, or a website I wanted lots of people to visit, but I figure my personal LJ, most likely viewed from people's flists anyway, is the safest place to experiment.

Love it? Hate it? Heh, sorry. I can never use stuff when it's hot off the griddle, so this once I'm making an exception. ♥

So, someone's just asked me for the HTML behind this look; first, far be it for me not to acknowledge its predecessors. (We also used the look here, and originally it was modified from an idea over at [livejournal.com profile] paradisa.) Second, isn't it nice not to have to stare at twenty or fifty or more than a hundred lines of small, black and white text, sometimes not even alphabetized.

WARNING: This is not a CSS tutorial. As such, I won't be explaining your CSS options in all that much depth. If you want to poke at an element of this design more thoroughly, you are totally encouraged to google it!

WARNING #2: If you decide to change a background or font color, use Find/Replace to change every instance of that color in order to keep your color scheme consistent!

A REQUEST: While I'm obviously showing you my exact code, the point of this little mini-tutorial is really more to come up with something different-looking for yourself. No one wants every single Taken list to look exactly the same, right? Right? D:

And now, on to the tutorial.

Handy code and previews inside! )

Enjoy! ♥

See, this is why IE drives me crazy.

Coding a layout for an Eljay comm. Siigh. D: )

Aaargh, I need a headache icon. ;_; Does anyone have any they'd be willing to share? XD

ETA: Actually, my bad. The centering, at least, is fine. Was looking at the main comm instead of the mun comm. Now if only I could get that image to show up. :D

Anyone who stopped by my journal of late may have noticed the strange layout; it was practice, for the brand spankin' new [livejournal.com profile] bleach_het comm. You should go, and check it out. And not just to see the layout, although I am awfully proud of it. X3

It was a harmless experiment; Vexen only wanted to see if Castle Oblivion could make floors from the memories of a Nobody. But a floor from the World That Never Was could not help but be unstable -- and to make matters worse, its Heartless have begun leaking into the rest of the castle...where illusions are not meant to go. And it's all downhill from there...

If you're looking for yet another RP that drops the Organization into high school and puts Demyx and Riku into an emo garage band together -- well, then you're reading the wrong post. On the other hand, if you've ever thought Castle Oblivion, with its memory-made rooms and sheer potential for crack could use a little more exploring, come right in.

Don't let the Cards paint those roses red. Marluxia wouldn't like it. )
