Popup Overload

Part one of the theme builder - the part that does fancy banners as seen above - is installed, though I haven't activated it for everyone.

Parts two and three, which handle layouts and styles respectively, will go in tomorrow.  That brings the total number of colour options available to 104.

That's not 104 different colours; that's 104 different things for which you can specify the colour.  Each with a little popup colour selector.

Also, you can spell it "color" and it still works.

Whoopsy

I was testing the new theme builder module on my test box (a good place for that sort of thing).  It seems to work well, except that the first thing it does is rename and deactivate your header, footer, and banner templates and replace them with the new standard versions.

Which I haven't actually set up yet.

One good point: Turns out the system is actually still usable with the header, footer and banner templates all missing.

Presto Change-o

Okay, that looks a bit weird, but it actually worked.

Also de-tableized the banner.

No Ears Kitty

Okay, the ad / no ad switch works fine, except now Floofy has no ears.

So I'll change the banner.

Update: You know what?  That looks pretty good.  I need to fiddle with the rest of the page style a bit to make it match, but that banner design I'm actually happy with.

The Problem With That

Is that if you have 140 different colours of menu text, you need 140 different colours of mee.nu logos.  In two sizes.  And the same for mee.fm, and mu.nu.  (The other domains can wait.)

That's a total of 840 images, which took nearly three hours to create.  Well, half an hour messing about searching for the original version, fifteen minutes re-creating it, two hours to write the program, and fifteen minutes to run it...

I won't display them all, but here's a sample of each:

Font Set Three At Last!

Wrapping up things with the theme builder, with the plan of installing it later today.   Here's the third and final set of fonts - pedestrian, but Unicode-compliant.  Ish.

These include the Microsoft "Core Fonts for the Web", Bitstream's Vera, and the SIL fonts Charis and Gentium.

Words And Colours

Here's a list of the words and colours available for menu items. Eventually I'll have a dynamic generator set up so you can use any word at all, but for now if you need other words you'll need to file a New Menu Item Request and wait a couple of hours.

All Dressed Up

Here's a sample with an ad, the mee.nu logo, and the menus overlaid. It's a little busy at this size; making the main banner section larger helps with that.

You can choose from white or black text for the system menus. Other colours maybe later.
