New Design

I’ve hastily refitted Soylent Red with a brand new visual layout and design that’s far better looking than anything you’ve seen here before. That’s because it was designed by someone who actually has an ounce (or more) of design talent. I took the design, “zenlike”, from a site called Open Source Web Design. It’s by a company called NodeThirtyThree Design, and is covered by a very free, attribution-only Creative Commons licence.

It was surprisingly easy to change the markup of the site to match what the stylesheet expects, though there may still be some rough edges which, let’s be honest here, are likely to remain rough for some time. On the plus side I fixed the site search function which had apparently been broken without my knowledge for months. I get the feeling I should be paying a tiny bit more attention to this site than I have been recently.
