New Look, for MORE Stupid

I was fooling around with the first beta of Community Server 2007, and swiped ideas from a few websites which shall remain unnamed (“I’m a code monkey, not a designer!” is my excuse).

I guess I like the new design enough to make the effort to back port it to CS 2.1, which is a pain in the ass to skin. I guess I was getting quite sick of the old look too, which was “developed” by me from the default theme of CS by changing some colours.

As a mental exercise, I optimised the CSS files by hand, and was able to reduce the total size by roughly 10%. Common.css is now down to 40 KB from the original 52 KB.

Take a look at it on the home page

Still waiting for CS 2007.
