After getting a lot of feedback regarding the dark grey and orange color scheme, I have decided to make a update to the look of RecipeTavern. The project has progressed nicely, and I have added many new features, with more still to come. The RSS feed is up and running, and the files are now exportable to BeerXML. The search features have been upgraded. Over the next week or two, many of the outstanding features (listed here: http://www.recipetavern.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8) will be completed. Let me know what you think of the new look.

From a professional site standpoint spelling is important

for regular forum posters it is not a big deal

awesome, I love the new look! Much more inline with brewing than the all-too-techy gray. You must have just uploaded this as I was just looking at it last night.

Shmo, are you doing the skinning yourself? I assume so. looks good.

Agreed. I hope I have corrected all my mistakes... My grammar is not what you would call top-notch. I probably have better German grammar than English!

Thanks. I was working on it last night, but in a dev site. I just uploaded the skin this morning.

The actual base skin (the darkgrey and orange thing) was one I downloaded as an IPB skin. I then made a bunch of slight modifications and tweaks until I decided I needed the new color scheme. I had a guy over at http://www.green-beast.com to put together that banner graphic for me. I think he did a good job with it, and then I went through and modified the CSS to the new color scheme. Then I took the skin and applied it to the rest of my site and made modifications/additions to the CSS as necessary.

If you are interested, open up the CSS file, all the stuff at the very bottom is mine.

You mean Mike Cherim?? I know him from webdeveloper.com. He does awesome stuff! I love it when he posts a new site in the reviews area. They're always great. I had a pretty good bit of dialog with him a while back when I was working on a site, he's a great resource!

That's how I cam across him. There is a thread in the Website reviews section for this site. http://webdevelopers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=101028 He took a look at my site, and we got into emailing back and forth last night, and then he put it together for me. He's a real great guy to work with.
