About the Layout

I haven't worked with yellow in a while. It's refreshing. When making this layout, the theme in my mind was "making the pieces fit together." More about the layout

Comments: I almost put this up until I just happened to remember to test it in Internet Explorer. Gah! Yellow is nice. Since it's summer, I thought yellow would be the perfect color. Oh, and also because I haven't worked with yellow in a while. It's refreshing. When making this layout, the theme in my mind was "making the pieces fit together." I was thinking, "Okay, put this block in this block...Small blocks into the big block." I really should finish my jigsaw puzzle.

Comments: This layout is a fluidic layout, with no borders whatsoever. If you can see it, I credited Vanesa because I was just looking through her website templates section and I got inspired. XD I also tried a whole new coding style for the divs, and it turned out to be pretty good ^^ Thanks to Vanesa for inspiration.

Comments: It's a nice layout, but in IE you can see a line break. I wish I could make the middle part stretch, but I can't.

No preview. D: You can see the basic layout here and substitute the banner with the image in the top left link. XDD

Comments: Boy, this layout threw me into a panic! I liked teh purple-ness a lot. But it looks crummy in other browsers that isn't Firefox and Opera, so it's a 7. =/

Comments: One of the best layouts, I think. The colors are nice, but the "banner" image doesn't scroll. I didn't know what to do with the banner image, so that's why it's just an 8/10.

Comments: I've always liked CSS and I've always found making banner images to be troublesome. Go CSS! ^^ I made the background image a while back.

Comments: I decided to dabble in a color scheme I wasn't familiar with. It turned out better than I thought. The banner is random, which I like. Overally, it's simple and straightforward. This is the layout where I got the most good reviews.

Note: This layout's mostly made by me, except for the banner. I just tweaked it a bit. :P If the image's yours and you want credit, you'll get it. Just email me.

I like the color gray. And black. And white. Which explains this layout. It's veryyyy basic, don'tcha think? Actually, I made this layout a year ago from CG and I just edited it a bit.

Comments: Coulda done better, but I was in a bit of a rush to put this up. The banner's a bit plain, and I forgot the "the" in The Wacky Onion. :P
