Well, that didn't go too badly. For those of you reading via a feedreader such as NetNewsWire, you really won't be seeing the terrible new design inflicted upon ext|circ--I suggest that you go there now and express your disproval.
Anyway. There's a little niggling thing with the new design. I'd really love to get a border between the two columns (the content on the left, the sidebar on the right), and the way that the layout is set up at the moment is this:
- a header div for the site banner
- a container div of 620px, which has inside it:
- a left-hand div
- a right-hand div
Which is somewhat of a simplification, but hey--you can always take a peek in the code. Just make sure that you're fully prepared for a bout of css horror.
I could stick a border-right on the left-hand div, but that's no good as it means the border may not extend to the bottom of the container, leaving it dangling at some position down the side of the right-hand div. Not good.
Alternatively, I could stick a border-left on the right-hand div, but that won't work for pretty much the same reason.
You may now have gathered that if you're still using something like Internet Explorer 4.0 or below, or any version of Netscape Navigator below 6.0, not only should you be taken out and shot with the same kind of vigour that The Two Towers is going to storm the Christmas film charts, but you really should upgrade to a better browser such as the latest version of Internet Explorer or Mozilla--you'll make your life and mine much more bearable. Even those using lynx or some other text-based browser are probably having a better time than you.
Flames, comments and suggestions about the new design in the comments, please, and a big fat prize to whoever can point me in the right direction with my border troubles (which sounds more like a territorial dispute on which one side is about to announce the possession of weapons of mass distruction than a css layout problem).
Aside: dear mother of god this looks terrible in IE 5.22 for the Mac. I really do apologise. To be honest with you, there's a rather large chance that this won't be fixed for IE on the Mac because IE on the Mac is not so much as pants as the hugest pants factory ever. Anyway, you really should be using something like Chimera, which is much better on OS X. On the other hand, I could try and fix it. Rock, hard place, bloody Microsoft.
Yet another aside: sneaky fix, I've tried to shorten the right hand div for cases where the left hand div may be short, i.e. make sure the left hand div is always longer.

i like the new site, no, i really do! good work.
In terms of the border issue (here's where you ignore me because my css always breaks), here's whats in my head: why not have a border on both ,that way whichever is the longest always completes the border to the bottom, to bring the two borders together you could always try a negative margin on the right column to account for the border width, maybe, if that works!
Posted by: edward george on December 2, 2002 01:15 PM
Ah, I tried that, but without the negative margin thing. I'll have another go.
