A Brand New Shiny Blog!

Welcome to the newly designed {and not finished yet!} home of The Parsley Thief! Ellie, over at Rainy Day Templates, helped give me the layout I wanted...she rocks!!
It will be some time before I have all the kinks worked out....and, there are many a kink. I have a lot of work to do, on my end, to finish it up. But, knowing me, I will not rest until every single one of them is done!
I know some of you might think, Hey! We liked it before, why change it?
Well, when I started this blog, over 2 years ago now {has it really been that long?!}, I really had no idea what I was doing. I picked one of Blogger's cookie cutter templates & tried to make it look the way I wanted it to. I liked the way it looked. But, grew bored of it & wanted it to function more the way I wanted & needed it to, but didn't know how. Since then, I have learned a bunch about it...but, still not enough to get it {blogger} to do exactly what I wanted...not without many a headache. So, I saved myself a few more headaches & got help! So glad I did!
I hope you all like it as much as I do!!

Update {6/3/10}: I am hammering out some photo issues. All the pictures won't always be this big! I want some big pics, but not all this huge! Just still hammering out some kinks! Thanks all!
Also, some readers are reporting that the new layout is too wide for their computer screen & that part of the title banner is getting cut off. Will be working on that as well!

Looks great!! Nice and fresh :)

Small suggestion, it's a little wider than the screen so there is a horizontal scroll bar, any way to make it narrower?

So, you don't see a horizontal scroll bar? I have one on my screen. Could it be your monitor settings?

Hey Kate I love it!!!! The pics seem so much clearer and brighter. Made your ribs on memorial day and they were delicious.

Kate--the hortizonal scroll bar does show up on my screen. But is there a way to make your layout narrower so that it is not needed? When the page loads up the name of the blog shows up as "the parsley thie" the F gets cut off. I have a wide monitor at home maybe it doesn't effect those but here at work on my plain old monitor it gets cut off.

Regardless of this minor thing I love the new look and I LOOOOOOOOOOVE your blog. It makes my mouth water everyday at lunch while I eat my boring diet food! Thank you so much for sharing with us :)

katie said...

yes, please check your monitor at home? I don't have a wide screen monitor here & it all fits fine for me.
is anyone else having this problem? let me know if you are!

I also have the same problem as "anonymous" - the page is too wide for my screen. I have the horizontal scroll bar and the "The Parsley Thie" title too.

But otherwise, I love it! I especially like the shade of green :)

katie said...

Thanks for letting me know! I don't want that to be the case, so I will work on fixing that!
Might not happen right away, as my tech support is away for a few weeks. But, I will work on it!

Anyone else, who's not having that problem? or is? Let me know? Thanks!!
