Anyone else getting little overwhelmed by these new "frameworks" for templates?
For some of them, you can't just go and edit the index.php file anymore in the template directory, you have to trackI
I'm starting to lean to the point of wanting to set up a simplified "template" without all the fancy features.
Of course then my mind goes off on all sorts of tangents and what was a simple idea becomes complicated with thoughts of:
Following a Vertical Spacing philosophy:
Using CSS sprites:
And of course, using Base64 data uri for said sprite. :-)
Which means supporting a tool to build said CSS sprites when people want to change them!
So then simple becomes not so simple and I'm back off to the races of complex design for no real gain. *sigh* KISS is really hard when you keep falling into the trap of that last S.
