New Earthoria website design

August 14th, 2008 | Thomas | General, Web design & development | 8 Comments »

Welcome to our new look website! I’ve been buried in CSS Style sheets and the WordPress system for a couple of days now and have finally reached the point I feel relatively happy putting the new template live. Having had our previous layout for a whole year, we decided it was time for a change.

The intention was to make the site look a little more professional whilst keeping a clean & uncluttered look, and at the same time keep one eye on improving its search engine positioning.

We hope the new website will stand us in good stead to publish lots of new photos, podcasts, videos etc on our impending trip to Latin America.

    Looks great Tom, but just one little niggle. There’s no padding on the left side of the main column (post text, comments). Just makes the text run up to the browser window, making it a little harder to read. Seems to have right padding though. Other than that, like it!

    PS. I’m using Safari and NetNewsWire on Mac.

    Hi Rob,

    Good point :-). As I increased the resolution/size of the site this time around (for 1024 browser width), I overlooked the fact that it would be flush to the left hand side of the screen for people using that resolution. I have a 1280 x 800 Vaio so didn’t notice it. (Test test test!).

    Is it golf? Or a Thai ladies dating agency?

    New site looks wonderful, the minimalist design really suits your sites content. A+++ job. There isn’t much real estate for the content on the left here but it seems to work with what you have.
