coding and back-end

The #gamemp3s Web site is based on the WordPress engine and is written using PHP, XHTML 1.0 Strict, and CSS. All pages on the site are written in valid code and are served as UTF-8 with the application/xhtml+xml MIME type (to those browsers that will accept it).

Much of the back-end work, including the initial set-up of WordPress and maintenance of the BitTorrent tracker, is done by Brant.


The current site theme (called Fomalhaut) was designed by lavender in the spring of 2007. It is based on the colour green and makes heavy use of Microsoft's Calibri font (alternatively the site will render in Lucida Grande, Tahoma, &c.). The type face used in the mast-head logo is Gotham Rounded. Graphics were designed in Adobe Photoshop CS2 and CS3. The HTML/CSS work was done using EditPlus.

The postbit icons in the blog section are based on the a0x icon set and are used with permission.


Because the content of the site has been kept separate from its styling, it should degrade gracefully, allowing users of text-based and mobile browsers, as well as the visually impaired, full and easy access. The site should conform to most, if not all, of the US Government's Section 508 guide lines.
