New look, but not quite The New Look

So here you are… due to some circumstances that forced us to move faster than planned on creating the new BeGroovy (is it 4.0 or 5.0? I’ve lost count over the past 6 years), it is not quite finished as far as the asthetics. This was rather a temporary mockup that was pushed through to completion. We have new logo’s and colors we are looking over and debating still. So, the look will likely change as we move along, but the new engine is in place, and commenting should work again now with less spam (Spam Lite? :P ). Also, if you have links to submit for the left column, send them in.

Anyhooos… let’s just call this version BeGroovy 4.0 - and we are still shooting for our own “Maui 4.5″ with a snappier look to it. Enjoy. :)

    I hope you concider the final version of the page being compatible with good ol’ Net Positive

    While I understand your desire to stay with BeOS’s native Net+ browser, it is something we are not striving for. BeGroovy, 6 years ago, proudly proclaimed “Designed for Net+” on our website. These days, I do not have the time or energy to design and code a whole backend, so I use freely available engines and attemp to tweak them to render in as many browsers as possible.

    I currently design with Firefox in mind, and strive to make a layout that will render acceptable in all Firefox and IE browsers, including BeOS’s Firefox. Net+ is just too old and has very poor CSS support (which many engines these days are integral with). I still do design some sites for Net+, but the engine in use here wouldn’t easily separate from CSS that Net+ won’t handle, and thus, it’s about as good as it’s gonna get, for now.

    well, fair enough.

    Nice look, Deej and friends! I’m wondering, though, whether you have plans to change the layout on the right edge of the page. The Other, Meta, and Archives sections of the page are nearly impossible for me to read; they are rendering as black text on a dark gray background.

    Happy New Year!

    Yes, I’ve gotten a few comments on that, and will be changing that soon. :)
