CSS Off Update

Published by Chris Coyier

Wave that checkered flag! Comments are closed and the entry form is shut down as the deadline for the CSS Off has now passed. We had an incredible 136 entries! A few right at the buzzer which makes me worry some people didn't make it, but them was the rules. I honestly thought there would be 20, 30 tops.

We'll begin judging shortly. This is going to be a big task for @dougneiner and I, so please bear with us as it goes on, it will likely take a few weeks. At some point, we'll make every entry browseable by all, with notes and scores. Then shortly after that, we'll announce the winners and begin the prize-choosing stuff.

As promised, I will be making a donation to a Haiti-relief charity of $408. I'm going to research it a bit more, but I'm thinking Doctors Without Borders.

I made and use my own "base" WordPress theme when starting a new WordPress project. I call it BLANK and I made it available today over on Digging Into WordPress if you want to check it out.

I recently had someone ask if there was a way to make a public page to show someone (e.g. a client) the status of the sites in their Are My Sites Up account. You can, and I showed how.
