Rip It Good

I have removed the IE Warning from my blog. IE 9 is running fairly smoothly with all the resizing stuff changing the layout. I changed IE 7 and 8 to not shrink past 970 pixels. What this means is that if your screen layout is less than 1024 pixels wide and you are using IE 7 or IE8, you will get a horizontal scrollbar. Sorry!

IE6 users are SOL. I didn’t even try. NOT SORRY! Not even Google supports IE6 anymore because it is easily hackable, and Microsoft themselves have a website all about watching IE6 finally die.

Lastly, I figured out how to pull in the links from my raveling section on Google Reader, so now you get a comprehensive list of all the knit and crochet blogs I follow. I believe there are 50+ of them right now. Depending on your browser size, they’ll be in the white sidebar, or below the main content of the page.

I installed a new plugin to help control the amount of spam that comes through my spam filter. If you are having trouble seeing my posts from any location, please let me know.

I added a Google Friend Connect widget to my sidebar so all you guys from Blogger have an easy way to follow me. It should add my RSS feed right to your dashboard just like it does with blogger blogs.

I also added in a Goodreads widget for anyone wanting to see what I’m reading and possibly add me on Goodreads.

I’m still trying to decide what to go with for Twitter. I’ll probably put up both my Rip It Good feed and my regular feed in the sidebars eventually.

Edit: Added both Twitter feeds. Removed Twitter and FB logins because as far as I could tell they weren’t being used. Removed the like button and added social networking like buttons. Those of you on blogger can now use a Google+ icon to “like” my posts. :)

I added a little “Like” button so those of you who can’t think of anything to say can still show you like a post.

The button is completely unaffiliated with Facebook.

Let me know of any issues!

My comments icons are now unicorns. Your arguments are invalid. :)

Also, if anyone sees a weird display bug in Chome, Firefox, IE9, or mobile browsers, please let me know what it is and what browser it’s on. I’m trying to weed out as many funky things as I can.

Edit: Just realized CommentsLuv got turned off somewhere along the line. It’s back now.

The blog is readable again. Thank goodness. Still work to do with setting featured images, as well as some styling issues, but at least it’s not complete mess now. At least, not if you’re using anything but Internet Explorer, though 9 looks better than the others if you have it at full screen.

Hellooooooo Nurse!

I’m slowly getting things all set up and hoping that this place won’t be so hard to navigate. I’m going to start by filling in the patterns, I think, and then I’ll get into putting up all the projects I’ve finished over the years. ¬†Bear with me!
