New layout is looking good so far, very clean. Fits your blog nicely!

Every time I come back in here there is something different below this comment box. Strange!!!

Plus the site is changing every time I come back.

I love to watch a work in progress so I think I’ll keep checking back.

Glad you like it, cuz it’s pissing me off.

Yeah backup onto a remote server, thats the lesson I learned this week. A rootkit came in and fucked up my server, and corrupted backups…

Looks Great so far Ruck & Jeff

Just think from this point onward the changes to the layout Prolly won’t have to be as Major as this one.

LOL Ruck…I think that was the funniest comment I have seen in a long time.

One of the funniest comments I heard was by Ruck the other day.

I will leave it to him to share… it’s a doosy.

Nice theme indeed. Custom made?


February 17, 2008

No not intially but after the mind boggling that it has given us over the last two days. I would not feel out place to say that it might as well be.

The new layout is slick Ruck – I like it. What about adding some type of image as a target in the sniper’s site in your logo?


February 17, 2008

Its hard to read long posts in with this new theme
But everything else seems nice


February 17, 2008

Yea,

Do you think the text needs to be darker? I enlarged it from 11px to 13.


February 17, 2008

Doesn’t look too bad. What was wrong with the old layout?

Knowing how much you know about SEO and all, Is there an advantange to having the “Recent Posts”, “Recent Commentators” and “Recent Forum Posts” right under your header?


February 17, 2008

Looks good so far, Ruck. Maybe a little foreign to people who have already been here because I was used to a certain layout. But, we will all get used to it. Glad to see you putting some ads on here. For all this info you are giving you deserve a shot at monetizing the site.

@Scott – Well the Presscut theme was kind of hard to work with. At least for me there are some things in the future that I wanted to incorporate but the old theme would have seemed crammed.

@ Denise – Yes and no. Yes in a sense that it does increase internal and inbound links. However this blog is set to only have the post pages indexed so I avoid category, archive pages getting indexed and me getting hit with a duplicate content penalty.

For the top of the blog I really wanted wanted new information showing. Such as recent posts, commentators and forum posts. Right off the bat it will provide a quick scan for people and see if this blog is something they want to read.

Thanks Ruck, that answered my question. I was wondering if I started a new blog if this is a better way to go than with having everything on the sidebar. I was under the impression that you wanted the bots to see the fresh content first, but if only your posts are getting indexed I guess it really does not matter.


February 17, 2008

new one looks nice, but I’m so used to old one

Looks decent. Not as good as it would have looked if i made it of course :). I rarley see the template of any blogs anyway since i read everything in my feedreader.


February 21, 2008

Ruck,
i am coming back to your blog after some time. i like the new design except for the header! That green one was “cool” – unlike the depressing grey one that you currently have. any plans for changing it back to the green one?

Will come back to read the rest of the posts later.

Got to go.

It fitted well with your content :)
