New Layout
« on: April 08, 2007, 07:02:36 pm »
We have a new sexy site layout here at RDS!  What do you think?  : )  Special thanks goes to AtomX for designing the layout in photoshop and beta testing my attempts to make his design a reality as well as Koop for brainstorming the thing.

If you are seeing the old two column layout and not this, then you are using Internet Explorer 6 and really should upgrade to Internet Explorer 7... or better yet, a better browser such as Firefox or Opera.  In any case, any of these three would let you see the new layout. 

There went my weekend.  x_x

If you find any bugs please let me know.

EDIT:  If you are using IE6, you should see the new layout though it won't have all of the cool drop shadows.  Also, if you aren't using javascript, the png images will look somewhat messed up...  I still recommend upgrading to IE7 or a different browser, but if you can't for some reason, you now are able to at least see the new layout to an extent.

Whoa. I remember seeing this design like, this time last year, and after a while I kinda figured it had become another one of the things that just kinda got forgotten....

Very nice to see it in action :up:

Good job Corran.

Out of curiosity, why is it only viewable on IE7 and Firefox?

Yeah, the site breaks and IE6 can't properly display alpha transparency in PNG files so I coded the site to check for the browser people use.  To site will display the new layout in anything except IE6.  I was able to test the page on Opera, IE7, and Firefox.  I'm not sure if any other browsers other than IE6 break. : / To see what happens in IE6 you can view a test file I was using:
