First day with listed.to
so far I'm really impressed with the ease of getting setup with blogging right from my notes. Really great idea and it makes me excited.. despite not actually knowing what I'd want to blog about.
Looking around at some of the other blogs, I didnt see many others trying out the custom css option. So I've made an effort to try it out.
Here are the main things worth mentioning:
Extremely glad they had example css to get started, especially listing some of the predefined color variables
Unfortunately, some of the variables didnt seem to apply to anything, while other very necessary variables either didnt work or were atleast not listed
Testing the updates as I worked was easy. just upload changes and perform a hard refresh on the browser
One kinda awkward resulting issue with uploading custom css is the settings page for you blog takes on some of those changes.. and well sometimes that makes it really hard to read if you weren't expecting to effect that as well. I had to go back and make some changes so I could see the text on the settings page.
