My Favorite Pinups

Postby Imajica » Fri Dec 31, 2010 4:17 am

My Favorite Pinups is a blog site where I show off what I think is the best pinups, photographers etc around

http://www.myfavoritepinups.com/

done totally in Nucleus with a page or two of static content

and we used the optimism skin (well mostly... there isn't a lot of the orig skin left.. I did a three column version of it as well with a wider body as a test)

do you think it's worth renaming? or putting the three column version up?

No I think it's great the way it is. It has a look that goes very well with the content.

I was more thinking about putting the three column version in the skins area
there seems to be a lack of them

but there might not be a call for it

I think there are plenty of uses for 3-col skins, I just think your retro look is better at two. 3-cols can get busy and crowded, which is not so bad on say a magazine or news site, but not so good for the retro look.

I think it took my wife and I about 12 hours
she does graphics and I do the css and html

a lot of tweaking and moving things around to make it look the way we wanted
