I’ve been working on the theme for the site over the last month, and I think it’s finally at a state that I can start posting some content.
The look was designed mostly around Apple’s Safari web browser, so I took advantage of some of the features available in it.
I plan on making a few changes over the next few months to make the look consistent everywhere, but it is usable enough for the moment.

A TODO file in the theme lists the following:

  • Search bar: I’m not sure I like the look of this yet, and the image could use some improvement
  • Logo: the site does not have one
  • Borders: Safari rounds and shadows well, but it would be good to find a more cross-browser approach like border images
  • Images: the images could use some work, the pinstripes don’t scale well and some of the gradients could be smoother
  • Image Format: choose jpegs at first, consider switching to pngs

The theme itself is available for download on the Downloads page.

If you have any suggestions or improvements to the style sheet that you would like to suggest, please do so in the comments for this and future posts regarding the theme.

    Ok I give up… What is Bycrom?

    If all of your visitors are idiots like me, you might post something like (Click on the topic to add a comment) somewhere.

    The description page will say more about this in the future. For the moment, the quick answer is that Crom is the fictional diety of Conan the Cimmerian. My site’s name is a play on the exclaimation of “By Crom!”, except that it is one word and pronounced as such.
