(Nearly) New Year – New Theme

on December 29, 2008 - 4392 Views

gmb-sovFor a while now I have been looking to update the theme on GameMaker Blog to give it a fresh look and, more importantly, a better implementation of listing post comments.

So from today we are using a new theme suggested by GMB writer gamez93.  The new look gives a wider portion of the page to the main content, and reduces the size of the sidebar.  

Comments left on GMB are now displayed next to an avatar belonging to the comment poster.  These are Gravatars (globally recognised avatars).  To get one next to your comments on GMB (and on thousands of other blogs) you will need to register and upload a picture at gravatar.com.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the site over the past year, be it by commenting, blogging or simply reading what others have written.  I am especially greatful to tuntis and gamez93 for their contributions.

    Timoi: I’m not saying that you were imagining it – there very well could have been one. I don’t know…

    Oh, I must have been imagining it then…

    Timoi: That’s funny, I never even noticed a favicon!

  4. Timoi says:

    Is it just me, or has the favicon disappeared?

    The theme looks really nice. I can’t exactly find words to describe it’s effect, though, ha ha. But still, good decision.

    Glad I made a decision that everyone (well the two people who posted) likes.

    Excellent, I love it. Looks much better on wider monitors.

  10. Danny says:

    Love it.

    It looks good, but reminds me of 64 digits a little bit.

    Although I think the footer looks out of place
