Firefox 3.55 on a mac – our cuber is off center, unless I adjust my screen really wide.

Solid background makes a huge difference. Much better I think.

I like the changes that you have made.

Whew now that the blinking is gone I can pay attention to the rest.

It’s a great design. I’d buy that!

There is a really annoying pulse happening. Is that intentional? It reminds me of the old “Blink” tag.

Expression Engine is awesome. If you do think of using that, here is some tutorials that will get you started.

Have you thought about something like surrealCMS?

It is a simple to install system. You just need to add the class “editable” to any area you want the client to have access to.

There is a built in image loader.

And you can have a blank page available on the site (not linked to your nav) & give them access to duplicate pages . They would have to be able to figure out the URL for the duplicated page. Which would be whatever you saved it as, and then create a link.

Check out the video on their homepage:

PS it’s free to for a single account. :)

I have not used Drupal, but I have used Joomla, had a brief encounter with Wordpress & I fell in love with ExpressionEngine.

Obviously ExpressionEngine is my fav. I come from a design background, not programming & for ease of moving an XHTML /CSS file into any system I found ExpressionEngine to be a dream. It is easy to port HTML themes from this site right into EE. And the customization of the control panel for the clients is great. You can simplify it down to 2 tabs that the client has access to (Publish and Edit). Add on a wysiwyg editor (My only complaint – it doesn’t come with one out of the box) and you are set.

The sites that I have worked with Joomla, I found there was a huge overhead just to run the system, and the sites were dead slow. Mind you that was 1.3, but I have not gone back to check out the newer versions.

In the new year I plan on experimenting with wordpress more (just because of the popularity of it).

If you are just looking for a simple CMS there are hosted solutions like surrealCMS too.

Ahh, it is big. Sorry my bad.

The only thing I would change if I was using this as a template is the spacing in the footer. Some blog names are going to be longer & it would be nice if they were a little wider.

Looks cool though. I like it.

Wow – does that mean you don’t like the idea of using sprites? Touchy.
