98% Pink

Gah. It’s always a pain to design on a live site.

Many thanks to Josh Pigford for fixing a parsing error with the sidebar. He saved me hours of frustration!

Some things still need tidying. Like the comment box…

And if anyone can clue me in on how to style the H2 tags for “Blogroll” and “UX Books” I would appreciate it. Those headers are created somewhere… so I can’t fingure out how to apply a style link you see on the other sidebar section headers. Got it. Thanks Mel.

Oh, and how do I point to archives.php, or archive.php in the top nav? Both files are in the same folder as the rest of the php files for this site (within the currently selected theme folder). But for some reason it just gives a 404…

For now I need to leave it though. Must go be a better Dad.

On a related note, we’ve hit 115 122 sites that are going Pink for October. :) My thanks to all who are participating.

    to get the blogroll and books stylized you could do something like this (I hope it pastes correctly)

    #linkcat-1 h2{
    text-indent: -5000px;
    color: #790046;
    background: url(http://usabilityworks.org/wp-content/themes/p4o/images/blogroll.png) no-repeat;
    }

    #linkcat-1{
    list-style: none;
    }

    #linkcat-2 h2{
    text-indent: -5000px;
    color: #790046;
    background: url(http://usabilityworks.org/wp-content/themes/p4o/images/uxbooks.png) no-repeat;
    }

    #linkcat-2{
    list-style: none;
    }

    Mel… you rock!

    Now I just need to fix that spacing issue between the lists and the headers. And I really need to fix this comment box because I just typed into the sidebar…

    I had a slight setback with a failure on my desktop. Got it fixed last night though, so I should be able to roll in the pink in the next day or two.

    Hi Matt, thanks for visiting my website! About your archive page, do you wanna have a list of your archive in one page? I recommend installing an archive plugin (I use the one from here).

    Sheilla: Thanks for the link. 9rules helps out again! Except it still won’t work. No clue what I am doing wrong.

    Christopher: Thanks for offering up your banner! :)
