New Teg Theme on the way...

No I did not died and disappear, I have been hard at work making the new theme... This new theme is a little different from the old themes in that it will support mobile devices, tablets and PCs.

Current supported screens are.

Mobiles:
Bandwidth friendly, features mostly text from the theme, no major images. Lots of stuff is hidden for mobiles because they are difficult to use on mobile.

480 pixel Screens (Small tablets)
Bandwidth friendly, features mostly text but and some images. Lots of stuff is hidden so the screen does not look too cluttered.

800 pixel Screens (Larger tablets)
The full TEG experience minus the slide show and a special box to the right of it. The idea is to put recently added blogs, comments and stuff i the bloxes like we used to do so navigating to them is easy and you can see at a glance whats been posted since your last visit. Only in this mode, 1 of the boxes will be hidden.

1024pixel Screens (PC's)
This shows everything, including the slide show and all boxes. The idea is to put recently added blogs, comments and stuff i the bloxes like we used to do so navigating to them is easy and you can see at a glance whats been posted since your last visit.

When you see the theme on the size, just resize your browser and you will get a quick demo of what the above looks like in action.

I still have to sort out the colours and make a few tweaks, some of those tweaks will have to be done on the site when its live. I expect to be uploading it tomorrow something. Then I'll be finishing it off.

I have spent 5 days learning to theme drupal, its a pig of a system, even after reading a book to help me, I find ignoring the online documentation was the best way to learn because the online docs was simply confusing and badly explained. Still I made my deadline, I wanted this up by the beginning of december and its just about done.
