Bit of a design change...

A while ago, I realized the main text of this blog was a lot narrower in high-resolution browsers than ideal, making for massive amounts of scrolling. Unfortunately, my HTML skills are well beyond dusty, so I tried tweaking a couple of template settings without a ton of success. Thankfully, Journal production manager Charlotte Yun is a web genius, and she was able to help me adjust the content and sidebar from fixed pixel sizes to a percentage system. The site should now show up across the entire screen of most browsers without either necessary horizontal scrolling or the previous dead space on either side of my content. I also increased the font sizes to try and reduce the required vertical scrolling. Does this redesign work for most people? Let me know what you think, either in the comments or at andrew_bucholtz (at) hotmail.com. Also, is there any particular content readers would like to see covered in more depth? I pretty much just write about whatever strikes my fancy at the moment, but if there are people interested in more in-depth coverage of a particular team or league, I might try and write more posts on that subject. As always, thanks for reading!

  1. Makes it super huge to fill the width of my wide screen 14". Maybe make it a bit longer (25%?).
