New Layout Layer: Venture

Theme name/layout: Venture / Radiant Aqua

Author: [personal profile] onlyembers

Venture (Layout Layer): Info | Source | Highlighted Source

Radiant Aqua (Default Theme): Info | Source | Highlighted Source | Preview

Additional info (for layouts): One transparent striped png in the theme; it's mine, so no usage concerns. User layout stylesheet is enabled, all column types supported. Right now I have the modules in single-column mode default to a 'display: inline-block' with their width looped into the display preferences. Feedback is welcomed; I was torn between this and stretching them across the full column. Is there a big single-col userbase that has a preference one way or another? I also added in a header navigation module that works independent of the sidebar one.

----

Needs Testing In:

- Browsers, possibly? I've run it through all the up to date versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc, plus IE8+ on up. From what I could see via an emulator, IE7 also looks all right, but I didn't want to spent a huge amount of time digging around until I got word on how far backwards compatibile things needed to be.

- The front-end UI? Again, I've checked everything over, but it's totally possible I've missed things a user might spot from the customization wizard.

- General testing. Pretty much just to be put through the paces! I've reached a point at which no more staring at the code will make it better without some input and a fresh set of eyes to tell me what I've inevitably missed/hosed up/etc.

Only the one theme, until the layout layer gets any kinks worked out. Extra comment flavor until it's ready for submission/patching. Have at it? :D

That is a pretty nice use of css transitions.

Oooh, I *like* this. I lean towards inline-block for one-column, though no doubt there are people who feel otherwise.

I think my only (very small) nitpick looking through is that the body font for entries seems very... pixelated on Firefox for Linux. I know fonts cross-platform can be a bitch, though.

Were you interested in patching this yourself? If so, I can do a quick code-review for you, and either Fu or 90d will probably do one before it gets committed. If not, the patcher (which will probably be me again) will do the going-over and what not *g*

Quick peek looks good on mobile too.

I like your transition too. Nicely subtle.

For one-column, I like horizontal modules too, and a user can force them to be full width by setting the sidebar width to the page width (or 100%? I can't recall if that option allows percentages). So you do have both options here, but users might not realize that. A line in the user options explaining how sidebar width functions in a one-column layout might not be a bad idea.

There is one issue I noticed, it's not your code, rather it's what happens when you put content right up at the top of the page in any style.

The DW code for the navstrip sets the height of the navstrip to 45px and puts a padding on body of 45px. Which is awesome except for how it's not when a user ups their font size. The page starts to slide under the navstrip as the navstrip gets bigger than 45px. Usually, with styles where there's a big whitespace below the navstrip, no one notices.

It's really noticeable on your style because the navigation tabs start disappearing at bigger fonts. You can fix this for almost all users by setting the padding-top on body to 2.8em in your layout. (use html body as the selector, to match the navstrip CSS)

Otherwise the style looks really good at fonts bigger than 24 pixels in all the views I tried.

I thought it looked great in the current version of Opera. I didn't notice anything that looked odd or glitchy at all :D

Very, very pretty and functional and original. You did a great job! What Fu said about the transitions and I think my favorite detail is the longer border on the upper right side of entries. I love the asymetric, modern, elegant accent it gives to the whole layout.

Edit: I've only had a quick look at your layers but I think kudos are in order. Also I second the offer for help on the transition to git. :)

This is the best theme on Dreamwidth right now

* H1 tags which normally display with a line break beneath them (when there is none) don't have one in this theme

* Ordered and unordered lists have the bullets or numbers on the line above the list content

I am using Firefox on Linux and Windows with NoSquint enabled and a text zoom of 130 percent; I have modified zoom levels but have not seen a difference

Poking my head in as I go through all our styles stuff to just say - yaaaaaaaaaaaay progress! I'm super-excited about this :)

Also, does this have a one-column layout

This is absolutely gorgeous! It's definitely my favorite theme I've come across on here!

Hey - I know you were initially interested in patching this yourself, but with the migration from Bugzilla to Github for bug tickets, I thought I'd check in again. I'm happy to work on patching it if you don't want to!

I don't know if you're still around but I hope you make the purple version on your journal available too! These are both beautiful.
