    Looks great! But, hard to digest the colours..

    I like it (took me a while to figure out what it was about, though–).

    I created a similar background for my main site. I used a couple of different transparent black pngs to make some text more readable. You might want to try adding them as backgrounds to your widgets just to make them a bit more readable.

    You can download them from here:

    Thank you for not hotlinking!

    @prasanna – what? You don’t like the color Orange? 🙂

    @Kenneth – It’s okay, I’m still trying to figure out what it’s all about. Thanks for the downloads. I don’t know if I’ll use them, but I like having options. And you’re welcome. Hotlinking is for lazy losers. Besides, I’ve got unlimited resources thru my host. Speaking of, how do YOU guard against hotlinking?

    Thank you both for commenting. I truly appreciate every opinion I can get.

    I love the colors – just think you should have background on where the content of the page is… it is difficult to read in this area.

    @dlett – Thank you. Funny you should mention a background — I’m changing that as we speak! I’m gonna try Kenneth’s semi-transparency from the post above.

    ugh. I can’t get the transparent image to show properly. It ends up too dark. What am I doing wrong? Here’s my css:

    .sidebar div.sidebar-wrap {
    background-image: url('images/trans20_black.png');
    border: none;
    }

    (I’ll keep working on it…)

    Try this:

    .sidebar ul {
    background-image: url('images/trans20_black.png');
    border: none;
    }

    (Code between backticks, please. Thanks!)

    (I’ll keep working on it…)

    That’s how you get where you’re going. It bugs me when people give up easily. You keep trying and asking good questions and eventually you figure it out, and then you can teach the rest of us.

    Kenneth – It didn’t work. Still trying things…

    I finally got it. Yours was right, but I had to write the complete URL. Thanks.
