This afternoon Dr Default and I rigged up a template for our website. Its looking quite good. I especially like the logo he made - which I will unveil when the site is ready. There isn't actually that much to do. A fair amount of the launch site is going to be static, and the few systems I have to implement myself are quite simple conceptually. So I'll be uploading the site hopefully within the next week or two.
This evening I got to work converting the rough html into the actual site. I tore almost all the properties out of the actual html and put it into a css file. I'm quite proud of that css file actually - nice and short but extremely effective. At the moment only the homepage exists, where the current news is going to be displayed along with a bit of static "welcome" text. I have most of the news system in place - just to finish off the news adding functionallity. The site is being run off php, which I've only ever toyed with before. I must admit I quite like it. I've been using CodeWalkers almost exclusively to learn the language and its one of the best tutorial sites for any language or API I've ever come across.
