Hi Everyone,

over the past few weeks I have been putting together a new site to provide tutorials, code snippets and other SS related resources to the community. This is the result:

[url=http://www.ssbits.com]SSbits.com[/url]

It's launching with 2 tutorials: Creating a Theme from a Static Template & Creating a Static Sidebar (both common requests around here) and a blog post which provides an example CSS framework structured around a SS theme. There are also a couple of other code snippets.

I intend to add more bits every few days. Currently I am working on a number of other tutorials including login redirecting based on groups and a jquery dropdown menu. The idea is to get a more dynamic resource building up to answer common and not so common questions all the while promoting SS as the great site building tool that it is.

Anyway feedback is most welcome and I hope it proves useful for people :)
