Over at TerraMedia I’ve been quite busy over the past few weeks working on not only a new design for TerraMedia, but a completely new website!
It is now using Drupal instead of Joomla and the theme is valid XHTML 1.0 Strict along with being completely cross browser compatible. Developing it for Firefox, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer 7 was really a walk in the park. Internet Explorer 6 caused me even more pain then usual due to the random portfolio image in the header that is on an angle.
I probably spent a good 50 hours just on that part of the design, not including the other IE6 fixes.
The left sidebar also took a little bit of fiddling around since it uses li:hover’s as well as a:hover’s and IE6 doesn’t render li:hover’s correctly and it renders li’s in general differently to the other browsers. So unfortunately, some of the sidebar functionality is lost but it degrades gracefully and that’s the important thing when degradation comes into play.
What do you think of the new “Web 2.0” style design and the new website in general?
