Release of R-Factor Version 2
Saturday, November 15, 2008
Yo all, the new blog skin has more or less been finalized.
And now, I shall announce the release of R-Factor Version 2.
There are some prominent features in this release:
1. Flash banner with integrated features.
It has a mp3 player and tag box integrated into it. This integration feature is only found in a few professional portfolios sites around the world.
....... But this is not a portfolio, nor a website trying to sell goods.
...... Its a blog. And that alone makes this blog one of its kind.
2. It is 100% styled by CSS and table-Less.
Tables have been the staple for layout of many websites in the world. However, they face compatibility issues and are not friendly to search engine crawlers.
3. This page is friendly for all resolutions 800x600 and above.
It works across most modern browsers, though auto resizing of the layout is not possible for IE6. But this won't affect functionality at all.
4. The CSS is also validated and 100% mistake free
...except for the parts inserted by Blogger for the NavBar on top =P (Blogger, you got some correction of your codes to do...).
But as for validation of the HTML, I cant be bothered. Blogger itself automatically produces syntacally incorrect HTML's across the whole page.
Now, what I got to do is to add more tutorials and update the layout a bit every now and then.
To make such a layout has been my dream for the previous few months, and now it has been materialized. At first, the plans to integrate a mp3 player and a tagbox together seemed daunting enough, with those CSS limitations I have to face....... it seemed almost impossible for a time limited student like me. But after 5 rows of SLEEPLESS Nights. I have achieved it.
If you have a dream, that seemed almost impossible, would you want to give it up or fight for it?
GO FOR IT, I would say. =) Fearing the difficult is the easiest path to failure.
