Well, I finally did it! I finally added a new layout to elucidation art, there was a lot more to do than I first thought, not to mention the fact I had to do it twice with the gallery being built in a different program lol, but I finally did it. There maybe a few kinks I need to iron out, I’ve been doing this layout for a few months in my spare time, little bits here and there.

Along with the new design I have a few new wallpapers 5 Twilight Wallpapers and 1 True Blood Wallpaper [images removed due to old links]

    So what’s new?

    Main Page

    Well there are quite a few new things, probably most importantly the layout! Image of Eliza came from Immortal Memories Gallery, fantastic high quality images there. With this layout I have tried to emphasis the content, as I want to be able to put some really good relevant content, so you might have to bare with me for a while as I’m rubbish at writing stuff up.

    In the side bar you will now see latest editions, which are taken directly from my gallery, so no need to for updating the site it all happens instantly, which means I’ll do block posts on new additions but newest stuff will probably appear in the side bar first.

    Probably most important to you guys or you guys with website is the random affiliates section, which will have a cropped image of my affiliates website/art depending on when I make the image with a link to their site, there are two, one with all my affiliates and one with my dailies, people who I am getting really good traffic from or people I just LOVE so much I need to spread the word so if you see the same link well check it out because its bound to be amazing!

    In the footer I have a poll which will change from time to time, and I also have top posters, which will list the top ten posters so the more posts the higher up the list you are, and I’m doing a test a the moment, to make sure I don’t get spam but I may but links up to other peoples sites but it depends.

    I’ve just noticed something I’ve missed so it will be going up shortly, an RSS feed to my posts so people can instantly get updates.

    Pages

    I’ve re-written all the pages, so things have changed, you can get to the pages by hovering over the top menu and wait a few seconds for the drop down menu.

    Affiliates have changed, I’ve been through all my old affiliates and seen who is missing and who hasn’t linked back, or people on hiatus, if I’ve taken down your link and not emailed you to ask if you want to be affiliates again, it probably means that I couldn’t find your site, but I would love to be affiliates again please just use the contact form or post a message on the blog either way I really want to have all my affiliates back. Alternatively if you had a site and you have lost your hosting, I am willing to host people who I have been affiliates with in the past, if I haven’t previously been affiliates with you but you have a site that you are wanting to move please use the contact form to email me with a link to you site and, I’ll have a look. I don’t know right now how much I’m going to give out, but I’m thinking 1gig space and 5 mysql to each hostee, but if you want your own domain name you will have to buy it yourself and I can set it up.

    Things to be added

    The RSS feed needs to go up.

    I’m going to begin doing the site of the month awards Visions again

    More tutorials

    A few more link backs

    and lots more art work :)

    Just a LittleNote

    If you are using IE 6 or 7 get a better browser, I have deliberately not coded for those browsers in a stand against standards, my site might not meet ALL standards but its got the basics and if you want to use an old browser view old sites, ie6 and ie7 should be banned!

      I’m not entirly happy with some of the twilight ones but I figured if I did put something up I’d never put things up.
