Fieldset & Legend Behave!

11 February 2010 mortendk 12 comments

The fieldset-legend tag is a legendary (rimshot) problem for webdesigners.
Its just that its a major pain in the ass to work with - the good thing about it is that it at least make sence for the usability nerds. But for a designer its a royale pain in the ass to look as you want it -unless you think that the outta the box fieldset-legend combination looks awesome.

You dont need a bass (or a guitar) to be a badass rockstar Drupal front end developer aka a themer.
To be imortalized forever and get more groupies than nikki sixx, you need some cool stuff, besides of black hair color, tatoos & cheesy songs about coding all night ;)

A tale of about my hatred to $links and how i almost came to live with it, after i ate my own dog food.

As you may know theres ways to view all the wonderful elements that is hidden inside node.tpl files, and how you can find em' by using the nerdy module:
Devel module. Its an alpha omega module.

Yesterday i got my code for typekit and it is übercool

so this is just a quick guide to get the typekit to work on you drupalsite, cause theres some small problems:

First get an account

I got my 5 invites and they are already claimed :/ - but now that i pushed mine to other drupal nerds i really hope that they send em further down the system to other drupal "frontender(s)" - yup were kinda trying to kill the term "Themer"

Devel a themers hidden treasure

its speak like a pirate day, so lets look at a hidden theming trasure.
jespers cool pirate version of my bulldog

At my session "All your HTML are belong to us" at drupalcon Paris I asked about how many people used the "Devel" module, I thought that was a no-brainer, but much to my surprise only around 25% marked that they knew the module. That could ether be because they all were sleeping...

The CSS moshpit - a non bloated gridbased css drupal theme

Getting my theme stuff together once and for all

Now 2 days after the Drupalcamp in Cologne (which was "fielspass" <- see i kinda learned some german), I sat down and took a hard look at my old custom basetheme and thought about:
* Should get on the bandwagon of grid based css frameworks?
* getting accessibility done right -ya know title & content in top of the page menus in the buttom
* make sure that i can use this for any design a client comes with (both grid and nongrid designs)
* .. and clean up the last bit of crap that was floating around.
* and how can I give stuff back to the people!
