More work on LEGO Theme

This morning Imade some more progress on the LEGO theme.  It is close to being released.  In fact, I was about to release it when I realized that the two different sized bricks for the page background wasn’t working.  Looks like I had deferred working on that.  The options work fine, they just don’t do anything as the size is currently hard coded into to the CSS file.

I did fix the problem with the Recent Comments widget as also added support for the WpTwitter widget.  I’ll noodle on how to get the size working as I go about my day today (chuch, soccer, etc.) and try and figure something out.  I also need to fix the footer links and add attribution to the Fibblesnork background images.

Here is what the yellow color scheme looks like:


ColorBlender seems to have come back on line which makes picking colors much easier.

What happened to

Another one of the resources I use seems to have crapped out. is still online but the site doesn’t work any more.  It is still possible to browse through some of the old palettes but it isn’t possible to create a new one.  I liked ColorBlender, it came up with some nice color schemes and was easy to  use.

Since it wasn’t working, I went in search for a replacement and found a couple interesting sites.

Of the three, I like the Color Match Remix Color Scheme Tool the best.  For a color neophyte like myself, these sort of resources are really useful.

Another resource I refer to pretty frequently is the Elementik’s Web design tools and resources I use page.  This page has links to all sorts of cool Javascript solutions, CSS tricks, color design resources, and more.
