In an attempt to suppress the incessant need to spawn new layouts, as mentioned in my last post, I have decided to hell with it.. I’ll simply fall on to Phil’s advice and bring back a style-switcher and several older layouts along with it.
This idea was easier said than done, as I discovered the majority of my old website content, images etc are in folders called “old stuff”. Each zipped, and then added to another folder called “old stuff” as the years have gone on. Cue zip files 4-5 deep, filled with zips and more folders, with no labelling and no way of telling what everything is without manually going through each thing. Arse.
Nonetheless, patience prevailed. The layouts I’ve had chance to add so far are listed on the ol’ Style Override page and I’m willing to take suggestions as to other layouts you guys would like to see re-added. However, bear in mind that I’m working with the structure created specifically for the default layout, so anything too “exotic” will need to be hacked or boshed to make it work. Likewise, older layouts may need updated imagery or navigation placement to fit into what my site is today.
I think this is the longest post ever, just to tell you “I added new styles”. :S
