    Re: Windows Vista Theme Link to this post

    I really like this theme, congratulations.

    I'd say that the headings being blue clash with the overwhelming otherwise green look.

    Have a play, but perhaps either some dark green, or other complimentary colour (dark grey? brown? A rusty dark orange?) might be better.

    I'm an advocate for blue links, so I'd attempt to keep those in. Maybe the links need to be a bit dark so they're not as washed out?

    Thank you.

    The background was originally blue, so thats where I got the blue headings from.

    I think your right though, A dark green would look nice. I think the standards fonts need to be darkened a bit as well.

    I will get right onto it as soon as I have a moment spare.

    hey Ryan,
    your windows vista theme is great, I have included it modified on my site (http://soccer.apocalypse.pl. However, there are some issues about the CSS validation:

    first, in typography .css it should not be .typography a:visted { but ".typography a:visited { ", and the second one:
    the validator doesn't like
    "filter: alpha(opacity=80);
       opacity: 0.8;
       -moz-opacity: 0.8;"
    in layout.css, I'd rather replace it with a 1x1 px 80% transperent png and "background: url(../images/bg.png);" - the css validator likes it ;)

    cheers,
    Wojtek

    Thanks, I need to change the first one, but in the second one if I use a semi transparent png, it will completely mess up in IE6 and below.

    So its the lesser of two evils.

    incorrect use of css or a really horrible ie6 and below.

    or do both.

    Use wojteks idea by default then have a IE6.css file with the current and use conditional comments to send only ie6 the filter hack.

    Then you get a valid layout.css file (the validater doesn't have to bother with the IE stylesheet) if thats your thing and a working version in IE6.

    Hey Ryan.

    Love your theme, I use it for my blog.

    Just wanting to know if theres a simple way of removing the opacity filter for images, embedded youtube videos etc? I like the opacity on the background but its a real pain having my images see-through too.

    A fix for this would be great!

    Have you experimented with stuff like this in your CSS?

    object {
    filter: alpha(opacity=100);
    opacity: 100;
    -moz-opacity: 100"

    }

    (I'm not sure if opacity of 100 means normal).

    Hey Sigurd! Great to meet you up in Auckland last month

    I have experimented with those setting but what im wanting is for the background to have opacity (like it does by default) BUT NOT have the images and embedded youtube transparent.

    Cant see a way around this?
