Moveable Type 3.121

:: Yesterday I upgraded my Moveable Type installation from 2.661 to 3.121. Did it go smoothly? HA! And the Boston Red Sox Chicago Cubs won the World Series this year, too! I do not have the template/CSS/coding savvy of Certain Other People I know and respect immensely, so I will ask you to bear with me for a while, please, until I determine how to deal with the new comment templates, which are sucking eggs right now. As well, STLQ looks like shyte in FireFox.

What I need to do is simplify things, and rebuild both sites (STLQ and PBD) with a new set of templates. For now, I’m going to bbq some salmon.

    Your site looks fine in Explorer. Your skyline photo spreads across into the right sidebar and the sidebar text is superimposed on the right half of the picture. That picture looks better large.

    Your site didn’t look bad in Firefox but a couple of design elements come out differently.

    I like the list boxes in the left sidebar for links to the monthly and category archives. Where did you find the code for that? I have seen it on another page – a librarian in fact.

    Cheer up.

    What wrong with STLQ? Looks fine in Mozilla. As does Pod Bay Door, although the sunset image is a fixed width (518 pixels) and spans the right column if the browser window is shrunk to 800 x 600. Nice picture, though.

    Another thing – your site banner – there are 4 different presentations of “The Pod Bay Door” and they appear differently every time the site is loaded or reloaded? That worked fine in Firefox.

    STLQ looks like crap in FireFox. The right hand column is missing. Can you see the right hand column w/o scrolling to the bottom of the page? So I’m rebuilding it using one of the templates available in MT 3.121.

    The PBD logo has four variations, so it’s supposed to be doing what it’s doing.

    The right hand column in STLQ disappears and drops below the main column in IE too. It must be the stylesheet or the main page template.
