New look - update

I messed around late last night and came up with this blog design. Major props do to Dan, because he hooked me up with the base template. I am not finished, mostly because I am not 100% sold I even like this color scheme, and my alignment is messed up. I do like the three-column format though; it provides more room for blog goodies. Alas, I am impatient, so I went ahead and prematurely put it up. Suggestions welcome from all three of you who read this blog.

*Update* - I continue to tweak, and one area is really giving me problems. When I view an individual post, the comments text does not show. The text color is the same as the background. Therefore the only way to see the text is my selecting it. Mickey pointed this out and I am still trying to fix it. If anyone knows where to look in the code, let me know. Also, if you are using IE, the blog looks messed up. Firefox is fine. I am working on that too. Thanks for your patience, I am very green at blog design.

*Update Part 2* - Ok, I think I am good to go. Suggestions welcome, but until next time, I need to get back to the Calvinistic quotes and other edifying things, such as Seahawks football and Husky basketball. Again, big props to my Winnipeg homeboy Dan for the template.

I love the 3 column scheme. One of these days I'm gonna have to move to that. It really provides for so much more room for blogrolls and such.

Mickey, yes, three columns is cool.

I just looked at my blog via IE, and it is all messed up. If any of you use IE, my blog will look like a six year old made it. I use Firefox, so it looks fine.

the commenting text seems to have dissapeared for me... I have to highlight it for it to show up. I think the color for the comments are the same as that of the background.

Mickey, you are right. Oops! LOL!!

You are dealing with a rookie here, as if you didn't already know. Later tonight I will get this stuff fixed.

I cannot stand IE. My blog title is all messed up in IE, but Firefox looks great. Mr. Gates no like The Potter's Clay I guess...

Hey Joe, dug around a little bit and I think I found the issue:

body {
background:#FFFFCC;
margin:0;
padding:0px 20px;
font:x-small Georgia,Serif;
text-align:center;
color:#FFFFCC;
font-size: small;
}

Your background and color settings are the same. I think if you change them, it'll be ok

Thanks Mickey, I was heading down that trail as well. I think I have figured out what was wrong on the color front. I now need to go back and change some of the colors to my liking, since I reset all colors back to the original template.

Thanks for your help! Big Auburn WA props to you my friend. :-)

Okay...now things are looking working a little better, Joe. It's coming along nicely!

It's only an opinion, but if you could seperate the center better from the side columns it might be easier to read.

Scott,
LOL, I have been tinkering with this template to do just that for a while. One day, when my calendar is open and I have an extra reserve of persistence, I'll get to it. :-)

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy FIDE-O, keep it up.

Nice colors, but does the text have to be center justified?
