Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, May 28, 2010

Well, now all but one of my sites look alike. Mangia Y'all still needs to be transferred...

EXCEPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There is something wrong here!! This is not how the posts are supposed to show up on the front page. I am stumped, as I built this on a test site and it looks perfect there, but then I move it over here and BOOM!!!!!! It blows up.

Obviously, I worked it all out and the site now has it's new look.

I am not sure I am going to keep the labels cloud or labels at all.  It would be nice to have them in a drop down list, but that is not offered.

I guess there is a few things to tinker with, but for the most part, this is what I have been wanting.  CLEAN...you get a tease for what the post is about and then you can click to open the remainder.

It really works well over at MUSIC ON THE COUCH because I can recap each show and add links to the show.

For COUCH MATINEES you get a tease into the story of the day...

Please let me know what you think of the new look and if you have any suggestions.  I want this place (and all my sites) to be easy to navigate, fun to read and informative.



TRAVIS of "Trav's Thoughts" is still hosting "Five On Friday", but I as I was tied up with getting The Couch to work until I was too tired to do anything else, I did not get my playlist done last evening.

Travis has also honored me by giving me a little section on his sidebar for all of the 5 BLC family sites.

Have a great weekend and a safe and happy Memorial Day.

If you own one - FLY YOUR FLAG!!!!!

  7. I'm with Liz about being happy there isn't a black background! Looks good!!!

    Happy Memorial Day weekend, Vinny. I hope Nancy comes home soon and that you get to have at least a little bit of time with her before you leave.

     
  8. Very nice, but holy moley that is a long label/tag list!!!

    I like the sidebar. Been thinking about getting mine back, not liking everything on the bottom.

     
  9. MAGS: Thanks...you also enjoy your first holiday weekend with B1...

    SHUTTERBUG: I made an executive decision and deleted the label list...too long here

  11. Like the lighter background and overall cleaner look. Easy on the eyes and nice for reading.

    I've never been a big fan of the "read more" type of layout though. I'd rather see the whole post right out of the gate.

     
  12. Jay Says:
  13. Nice layout. I like it!

    www.musiconthecouch.com isn't working though. :(

     
  14. JEFB: Thanks..I considered the read more thing, but kind of like it myself

    JAY: Thanks...yeah there was one less w than needed! All fixed

     
  15. Dana Says:
  16. Much better! Much, MUCH better!!

     
  17. TechnoBabe Says:
  18. I prefer the clean look, easier to read, so I like the change very much.

     
  19. Kudos on the new clean look! Love it; so easy on the eyes, especially if I'm reading late at night. ;)

    Don't know how much I'll be around next week to visit; so fair waring now. I'm heading out for some serious toes-in-the-sand time. :) Have a great holiday weekend!

  21. You know how I feel about the dark backgrounds. My eyes thank you for the switch!

    And here's a neat thing I just discovered...when I click over from my reader, the main post is open in it's entirety.

    Cool!

    And you are welcome.
