Blog Wiidesign!

Saturday, December 30th, 2006

Instead of going for a complete overhaul, I tweaked my blog a bit. It’s similar, yet a little cleaner with the sidebar stuff down at the bottom.

The BIG news is, though, that I added Wii support to my blog. It’s quite useless, as I doubt tons of people will be surfing over to my website using their Wiis, but I figured, “Why not?”

If you want to make your website a little more Wii friendly, just drop the following in your document’s <head></head> area:

    <script type="text/javascript">
      window.onload = function() {
        // Wii detection (for CSS tweaking)
        if (navigator.platform == 'Nintendo Wii') {
          document.body.className += ' ' + 'os-wii';
        }
      }
    </script>

Then, you can go crazy in your stylesheets by adding body.os-wii {} and derivates, like body.os-wii #content { font-size: 18pt; width: 100%; } or body.os-wii #footer { font-size: 16pt; }

This is just my little belated Christmas gift to all you fellow webmonkeying Nintendo nerds. *smile*

(Oh, and feel free to use the above however you want…)

Not quite what was intended…

If the element that has an overflow has a child that has a position, then the child will act like position: fixed relative to its rendered placement and the scrollable region’s scrollbar will have no effect on the positioned children.

This affects both Internet Explorer 6 and 7.

The solution? Set the scrollable element’s position to relative (in CSS). Thanks to Alex Hudson, aka. so_solid_moo, for a pointer to the fix.

(Sidenote: So, one should be able to actually use this bug to emulate position: fixed in IE6, I think.)

Boohoo?

Hopefully Microsoft will buy Yahoo! as much as they bought Opera last week.

(Rumors, rumors…)

My website now works in IE (again)!

Friday, October 28th, 2005

It’s not that important for a majority of my visitors, but for those few who do view it through the ever-so-buggy Internet Explorer, my website will now display quite similar to the way it looks in pretty much every other browser.

Usually, I make sure that sites work well in both standards supporting browsers and Internet Explorer — but for my personal site’s most recent theme, I slacked a bit, as IE compatibility is a bit of a pain to get things to work right, and lately I have not had much time to spend to fix it.

PS: Comment posting is still a little odd (the error message, most likely caused by a PHP5 error), but comments do still get posted. I added a little message about that above the comment area, just to let everyone know.

Opera will finally stop referring to itself as Internet Explorer!

Opera will finally stop referring to itself as Internet Explorer! This has been way past-due.

GetInternetExplorer.com is a well-done parody poking fun at Microsoft’s Internet Explorer in the style of GetFirefox.com. Pretty funny.

Fixed IE compatibility

Friday, September 10th, 2004

There were a few snags with Internet Explorer when I launched this site. I updated the CSS to fix the following:
* Force the text above the background (IE was drawing the content below the background for some odd reason)
* Fix the width to an actual size instead of relying on min-width or max-width
* Move the logo into the correct position for Internet Explorer
* Add a margin for forms with IE, as it was overlapping one form element over another

Thankfully, these small changes were both easy to figure out and implement.
