Team MacNN Geeked!


After slacking off a long time, I finally got around to finishing our distributed computing team web site, complete with a brand-new theme that validates to XHTML 1.0 Transitional (most pages, at least).

I did have to replace <br> tags with <br /> tags in several .php files where they are hard-coded, and hard-coded img tags also had to be modified (need an alt="" parameter and the /> end tag at the end).

Anyway, go check it out at http://team.macnn.com and tell me what you think. I haven't really testing this on many web browsers, but it should perform well with Mozilla, Netscape 7+, Safari (OS X), and OmniWeb (OS X). iCab has some issues because it doesn't accept much CSS. As for Opera, I can only hope.

I would be interested to know where you found img tags without the alt attribute - I thought I fixed them all. Cleaning up the hard-coded HTML somewhat was actually my first contribution to Geeklog Mr. Green bye, Dirk

I just did a search on the 1.3.8 code and I didn\'t find any. Template files excluded.

Well, the alt tags were probably only missing in the external pages plugin.

All the hard-coded image tags throughout the project did require the requisite
/> end tag, however, to comply with XHTML.

I know you guys have worked really hard to get all the HTML out of the php files, but it still is there. I hate touching the source (as it is harder to upgrade), but with bits of html still hard-coded in some places, I needed to make those changes to get XHTML compliance. (XHTML compliance is not really a necessity, but something new that I don't think anyone else has accomplished with a Geeklog theme.)
