Guess and Check

Yeah, so after publishing that last post, I checked in IE again, it seems like that big gap appears after the first div in the content and pushes the second content div down below the end of the menu.

Now that I know what’s happening, I just need to figure out how to fix it.

IE viewing

Well, I just looked at the site in IE for the first time, and there are a few quirks. There’s a big gap between the two day’s posts. Oddly enough, it’s before the comments for the second day. Also, the margins for the menu and the content divs show up differently. Not that bad though. The acronym thing that WordPress uses doen’t show up at all, however.

So nothing that bad, as I had feared. I’ll keep working on it.

Some explanation

Okay, so now I feel the need to explain why I’m starting this little thing up in the first place. I’d like to think that while not that many people are going to be reading this now, someday people are going to go through the archives from the beginning. They are going to find this little nugget of a post right here.

So yeah, I kind of always like the idea of having a blog. I read a few quite regularly. It gives me a little bit of insight into those people’s lives. I kind of like the idea of giving that kind of insight to others. And it gives me something pretty cool to work on. Learning all this stuff is really nifty. I already tweaked the layout quite a bit. How the site looks now is nothing like the default layout. Tweaking the CSS to get what you see here was an interesting process.

Another thing I need to do is figure out how to use all the nifty features of WordPress. That’s the personal publishing system I’m using to present this thing. I chose it over some of the other systems out there mainly because it used PHP and MySQL.

Okay, that’s going to be all for now. In the meantime, why not check out The Homestar Runner Wiki? It’s an authoritative knowledge base on everything Homestar Runner. “Everything you ever wanted to know,” as they say.
