‘Skinny’ theme added

Part of general update :: April 12th, 2006 :: Site news :: 6 Responses (Feed)

I’d just like to draw your attention to the site’s new theme, Skinny. Both Skinny and the new metadata layout (including the straplines) come after some well-deserved constructive criticism from a magazine industry veteran.

If you found yourself getting lost among the site’s long lines of text before, or found the bright white page background a little too much, select Skinny from the Options section of the sidebar (or click here). Click ‘Slim’ to revert to the default theme if you prefer it.

Skinny is now the default theme for new visitors.

    There doesn’t seem to be any stylesheet at all until you click on that link (firefox and explorer)

    Did you have the old old style with the sidebar down the left active? I removed it just now, seeing as I’d broken it several times over through negelct.

  3. Garry Says:

    I don’t know, I just visited the site and it had no stylesheet (white page, no layout, blue links, default font). I had to click the link and the new design popped up instantly.

    I had visited the site using this browser before, but it was a few days ago.

  4. Tom Edwards Says:

    I’d say you did have it then. That shouldn’t be a huge problem. It ought to be working now.

  5. Trigger- Says:

    yeah i like the old design i have to say…

  6. Tom Edwards Says:

    Is anyone seeing a brief flicker of unstyled page when they arrive? I can’t get this in Opera or IE, only Firefox…
