Less is more

Bruce Elgort re-designs. Well done. BlogSphere does not have to be "BlockSphere", nor does it have to be broken.


But your link to it is broken ;-)

Is blogsphere supposed to appear differently than that image? It appears exactly like that image when I load it in Safari.

Oh yes. Try Mozilla or Intenet Explorer.

The Blogsphere template "out of the box" tends to be "blocky". Also, the screen shot Vowe posted was not rendering correctly in Safari.

I have tweaked the core template a bit and you can see the result. Hope you like.

BTW - I am still working on it ;-)

Does it only appear like that in Safari ?

Why did nobody tell me before? I would have worked on getting it fixed but with no access to Safari I had no idea.

Anybody care to assist ?

Since Bruce is now running Safari, I am happy to volunteer him to help out. ...and his redesign IS very nice! :-)

There are a few blogsphere sites are broken in Safari, but not too many. Here’s the list I have:

(bad: as shown in vowe’s screenshot)

(bad: looks horrible in Firebird too)

(slight: post details run into each other)

(slight: virus update text overflow)

(slight: header graphic placement)

(slight: search box blocks out top of page)

For testing, where you don’t have Safari, you might want to consider using this tool:
