No ! I am not dead !

No ! I am not dead ! I was silent for days (even weeks)….

I was working on a lot of stuffs and I was overloaded ! I finally managed to finish everything this Friday and to conclude : on Friday, my boot harddisk of my personal desktop crashed ! Let’s say it my good period….

I have to look at the bright side…. ;o)

A lot of new things are coming :

  • blog.idahocline.info layout totally renewed.
  • in the coming days, 2 new plugins (psnGeneric and psnSTAT and their administration pages) will be available.
  • On a old PC I just have installed RedHat 9….to play a bit with Linux. That why on blog.idahocline.info, a new category will be created : “Linux / RedHat”.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say : In the coming days, I will remove from this site all the links, categories and posts related to WordPress Development. And I will move them to blog.idahocline.info (and vice-versa).

This will allow me to make an actual difference between blog.idahocline.info and blog.idahocline.com .

Why idahocline.com and idahocline.info ?

Well, at first sight both sites are equal… In fact, idahocline.info was created in the hurry due to issue with the webhoster of idahocline.com. But normally, idahocline.info should have been created a little later.

In fact, I planned to create another site dedicated to Web Development with everything related. So let’s say that this site will be soon totally redesigned to be more developper oriented, with different areas, like :

  • CSS/xHTML : Templates / tutorials / links
  • Design : Ideas, discussions about Web Designs
  • PHP/mySQL : Tips and tricks for PHP, mySQL, …
  • WordPress : plugins, tips & tricks, …
  • Showcase : portfolio of several projects done or in progress
  • Testing area : do you really don’t know what it is ? 😉

Normally this site with architecture above will be online soon, probably end of June….

Of course, idahocline.com will stay online but will be more focused on my wife and I.

I am also working on several other WP plugins (with an administration page):

  • psnGeneric v1.0.0 : Random Item: Random Quotes, Books, … based on a table (Totaly generic)
  • psnGallery2 v1.3.0 : Coppermine Gallery (including all supported formats)
  • psnStat v1.0.0 : TFS WebStatistics

Lack of :hover Support in IE

:hover does only work on links (<a> tag) on Internet Explorer !

If you want to implement a “Pure CSS Menus” and for that using <ul> and <li> tags and if you rely on :hover applied to list items, not links, it will perfectly work on non-IE browser ! If you use IE browser, than you can call Houston ! You have a problem !

So, I investigate a bit, and I finally find few hacks to bypass the issue. The easiest one, AMO, is the one proposed by Peter Nederlof in his whatever:hover article.

You will also find a rather long article on all the “Side-stepping IE” on Mezzoblue

That hack and some others will be used in the next release of this site to have the same behaviour while browsing on all browsers (standard compliant or not….! ;p

Not yet ready to move your browser to a compliant browser ? lol 😉

New Web Interface

As you can see, I change the look of the blog.
The theme is inspired from Windows XP. Everything is CSS without table !
I ripped nearly all images with ….XP !

The style is based on a work of Lim Chee Aun.

I kept the philosophy but I am still working on. In fact, I want to have a “CSS generator” module which will link the categories, the links to a database defined icon.

I need a bit of practise with CSS Level 2 but this stylesheet is already helpful.

BTW if you want a lot of skins just go to Zen Garden or Mezzoblue.
