Test of the Jump Break Code

I'm going to see if the Jump Break thing actually works on this blog. The code is apparently in there, I just have to see if it will work when I post.

Conversion Summary...

Recording this on the dummy blog for my own information. I first noticed a problem when I was looking up information for my Emerald City Comicon 2010 report. I learned, after a little searching, that Google had introduced a bug called "Auto Pagination" to Blogger that limits the amount of information a particular blog can display in a single page. This isn't a real problem with newer blogs that have an "older post" link at the bottom of all pages. But for my blogs, made on Classic Templates, there is no "older posts" option, and so it didn't broke my archives because only part of the information is being shown.

All Done

Well, I seem to have managed it. I updated all three blogs that needed updating, and switched over the other three. I even dealt with a couple of tweaks that Elayne wanted on her blog, due to her aversion to negative space on the sidebar.

Now I'm just playing around to see what else can be done.

Tested the layout on BrowserShots and it looks really good on most current browsers. I'm working on fixing up the styling of the posts now, just about finished, then it's time to work on the sidebar. I think I've got most of the post styling worked out.

Dummy Blog

This is a dummy blog that I'm using to convert several classic blogspot templates into layouts. I have managed to fully convert one, replaced the templates with mostly generic layouts on three others, and have two more heavily edited templates still to convert.

The first blog I converted was my own regular blog, Bloggity-Blog-Blog-Blog. I started 8 years ago with a template based on tables, then converted it to CSS when I got into a CSS craze a few years later. It isn't perfect in the layouts format, but it's almost as good as it was. The display is wonky on Internet Explorer because Internet Explorer is non-standards-compliant, leading to annoyances that Opera and Firefox have no trouble with. I worked out most of the problems, but it was still a bit of a pain. Sadly, I cannot figure out why the top bar on the sidebar just won't display right in IE no matter what I do. Every fix I've attempted results it more problems.

Once I tackled Bloggity, I started work on Elayne's Blog, which is what I'm working on as of this writing. Hers turned out to be much more of a challenge, and surprisingly more fun. The original tables template was never converted into CSS when I went through that craze, mostly because it cannot be converted. In fact, in order to get it to work in Blogger Layouts, I had to cheat and include remnants of the original tables in order to display the background. This has resulted in really odd margins and such, which I spent a good four hours messing with. But I think I've worked out most of the kinks, and it works on Firefox, Opera, and IE8. I also ran it through IE NetRenderer and it works in IE6 & IE7, but not previous to those. I'm also trying BrowserShots, but it was blocked because I had turned off search engine crawls... whoops! I'm checking the layout now...

After I finish with Elayne's page, my last task is to update the Aquaman page. The blog is embedded in the page, so I have to be VERY careful with the styling. It will be annoying, but hopefully fun as well. At least I know I updated that page to CSS some time ago, so it shouldn't be an impossible task like Elayne's page!
