Just from a quick skimming through:

  • Your CSS definitions aren’t properly indented, making them difficult to read.
  • Logo (http://nyk-london.com/images/logo.jpg) should be a background image instead of an image.
  • The same, the RSS icon before the ‘Subscribe’ link, should have been a background image.
  • The RSS icon has no transparency. You either make it a 24bit transparency PNG with JavaScript fixes for IE6 , or you make it with a background colour the same as the background colour of the element behind (in your case, dark gray/black).
  • ‘Portfolio, go straight to the action’ needs to be a background image.
  • Are you also going to make 366 images for the dates? Make them background images with text overlay!
  • Spacing, alignment as well as font size are all wrong. You do have a preview image, so I don’t know why you didn’t just comply to it.
  • The footer is broken in all the browsers I’ve tested on (the MT ad is out of the footer boundary, and no padding/margin between the content and the footer area as shown in the preview image). Is this still a WIP ?
  • We can ignore IE6 , but your sidebar is also broken on IE7 .
  • In FF 3 .6, the bottom half of the content area’s background has a black background. (see: http://i50.tinypic.com/50pppw.png)

Im wondering if there are performance-related choices for switching from WP to Tumbr. It’s not secret that WordPress is a memory/DB hog if you let it. I’m aware of the cache plugins etc. I’m just saying, it tends to be heavy on the resources. Could be a reason they switched?

No, performance is not an issue at all. :)

Just our of curiosity, is anyone interested in themes for Vanilla forums?

Basically, since EE is not open source, it should be more secure.

This is not true at all. (Hint: Windows vs Linux)

ProjectPier is about the only usable one I’ve found. http://www.projectpier.org/

And if you don’t mind paying, ActiveCollab is a very good system. http://www.activecollab.com/

And it is recommended to not include the closing tag in PHP files:

I was a casual reader of Psdtuts+ and Freelanceswitch.

Ironically I had not paid much attention to the company behind these sites though.

Until I started working here… ;-)

I see that ‘www.tutsplus.com’ isn’t redirecting properly, this will be fixed very soon.
