So tell me, what's this all about?
Here at BMC WebDesign, we love wikidot. We also love the style and class of CSS3. So we've decided to bring the two together, in this here blog. We plan on bringing you tutorials and how to's on adding simple, practical and stylish content to your wikidot site, using the advanced features of CSS3. Some you'll be able to add directly into your pages, others will be aimed at those creating custom themes. And to top it all off, we're going to offer you some of our Wikidot Themes, lovingly created, and home-made, to give your wikidot site a fresh new makeover that you'll never regret. This site is brand spanking new, so bear with us as we sort out any teething problems, but most of all, we hope you enjoy the ride.
CSS3, what's that?
If you're reading this wondering what on earth CSS3 is, don't close your browser just yet. Let us enlighten you…
Cascading Style Sheets (abbreviated by some genius to CSS) is a language used in web design to control the look and formatting of your site. Here at wikidot, CSS is used to give your site its very own theme. CSS basically lets you control the look and style of your entire website in just one place. CSS3, the next, more advanced level, lets you do this with more control, so your website can look it's best.
The specifications for CSS3 are still under development, which means only some website browsers support its features, and even they're not completely perfect. Currently the best browsers for CSS3 support are Safari, Firefox and Chrome. However, this doesn't mean you can't start using CSS3 right now to dramatically improve the look of your site.
While it'd be handy to have had some experience with CSS when implementing the examples in this blog, it's not necessary - you can learn it as you go along (remember, you have to start somewhere!).
So, let's get started…
It might take us a while to get this whole blogging thing perfected, and I should remind you that while I'm rather confidently talking about CSS, I am by no means an expert. But we won't let that stop us having some fun. Remember, this is all for the greater good of your wikidot site. Now let's get this show on the road…
