New Blog Design

For the past four months, I’ve been collaborating with Jon Phillips of Freelance Folder.  I wanted a more professional and easier-to-read design for LifeReboot, and Jon was willing to make one for me.  Tonight, the new blog design went live.

As a former computer guy, I know that upgrades tend to create problems.  I’m expecting there will be some design issues on the site for the next few days.  Please excuse the mess while the kinks are being corrected.

If you want to report a problem with the new design, please describe it in the comments section.  A few requests:

  1. Read previous comments.  Don’t repeat problems that have already been reported.
  2. Indicate what browser you’re using.
  3. Be clear and concise.

Thanks in advance for your feedback, patience, and understanding.  I hope you like LifeReboot’s new look!

Problem: Search Button
Browser: Firefox 2
Description: The Search Button on the horizontal navigation bar is “sunken”

I’m happy to see this design live 🙂
Bugs are to be expected, I’ll make sure to fix them asap.
I’m already aware of a screen resolution problem and some IE bugs.

This new look is fantastic! (viewing in FF) Jon always does great work – I always recommend him to everyone who asks about blog design. I’m glad I found your blog – going to subscribe right now!

Excellent, clean design. Using IE 7 and no major gaffes at all. I also like the fact that the fonts are much bigger in both the post column and comment section. It was harder to read them before. Love it!

Looks good. Very clear and concise. Just one thing I’m noticing in MSN 9.5 is that your header on the right “Recent Articles” is a little askew (slightly a little to the right) over the line of the box.

I like it Shaun.

You say you are a computer guy, then you should know that you can detect the browser a user is using.

And avoid being patronising. It just lost you a reader ..

I guess if he is no longer a reader, we can talk about him…cool.

I like the clean look–easier to read. Thinking about starting an on-line journal, any advice?

I love it! Clean, easy to read, professional but friendly.

In Firefox 2, an alignment problem shifts the header, footer and sidebar titles to the right.
