Site layout changes underway

If you’ve been visiting this site internittently during the day then you may have noticed a number of different styles suddenly appearing then immediately changing to something completely different. Some of these styles have been quite nice, but some were just hideous.

This has all been in my quest to get the site layout sorted out after I upgraded Movable Type to version 3.2. It’s working out pretty well so far – the StyleCatcher plugin is working really well now – but I have some way to go before I’ve ironed out all the problems. Currently the category and archive pages have a blank space on the right side – this will be filled with the sidebar eventually, but I have to figure out how to do that first as the templates are just a sea of divs and classes.

Eventually I’ll amend one of these templates to my own design, or at least a variation of one of the default templates. Six Apart have done a fine job of getting some reasonably pleasant default layouts for this new way of displaying Movable Type blogs and I don’t think it’ll take too much effort to get something going.

Mind you, I’m usually far too lazy to try too hard at such things 😉
