@ rosetrees
1) on my ipod touch, the site text is small and squished to the left
2) the blog title/tagline is off to the right down by the content seperted by a big chunk of real estate
3) your background image is 673K (nice tree) but you should reduce the quality and dimensiion - does it really have to be 1800X1350?
4) in your header.php you have multiple div's with the same ID - ID's are suppose to be unique on a page, classes can be duplicated, but ID's should always be unique

Here is my gaming blog that I've been working on. Still some tweaking to do left with Montezuma but for the most part I am pretty happy with it.

Hello All,

I made some modifications to the original Montezuma theme design.
  • Circular navigation buttons
  • Logo with hover change
  • Large thumbnail with text overlay on blog page

I spent some time figuring out how to put iTunes and Amazon Affiliate links into it while still looking good on iPhone, iPhone4, iPad mini and Desktop. On iPhone, I had to hide the first Amazon banner so it doesn't look weird.

Here's the site I've been working on:

Thanks,
K

Wow, the circular nav buttons and the post title over the thumbnails are very cool. Thanks for sharing.

I like the circles looks like they are done with this CSS
HTML Code:
ul#menu1 li {
    border: 1px solid #E2E3E5;
    border-radius: 150px 150px 150px 150px;
    height: 75px;
    margin-right: 25px;
    width: 75px;
}
#menu1 > li {
    box-shadow: 2px 4px 20px -18px #000000;
}
#menu1 > li:hover, #menu1 > li.active, #menu1 > li.ancestor {
    border-top: 1px solid #E2E3E5;
}
and you might want to add
HTML Code:
#menu1 a, #menu1-smooth a {
    text-align: center;
}
One note, this will only work well with short menu names, something that will fit in the circle. 'Home' will work, but 'Track your order' will exceed the constraints of the circle.

I have done some sites using atahualpa, and after finding it rather difficult but wonderful at the beginning I got used to it and I truly like it. Montezuma made me curious enough to try it.
Being rather new to CSS and surely to php, it is a challenge, but I like it.

This is my first montezuma-site: www.tastenfischer.de

Thanks for the great help with some issues on this forum!

Here is my second site built using the Montezuma theme: Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple. I converted it over from Atahualpa and managed to keep most of the same appearance, but, of course, now it's responsive. The front page is a static page, although I use the plugin xili Post in Post to display the latest post from a particular category. Another plugin I use on the front page is Meta Slider to mimic Atahualpa's rotating image feature in the header, as well as to place a carousel in the main content area (I created widget areas in both to hold the two sliders).

Good looking site, I like the thumbnails on the left of the post excerpts on your index page.

Take a look at this post. I think you should be able to use it for your post excerpt thumbnails.

Hi,
after lurking for a while (and using a lot of tips from here ) and fighting for days with the template I'd appreciate some feedback especially if you think the theme suits photography related content. My initial thought was the feature images might be too small but I'm staring now so long I've lost all objectivity. Still some tweaks need to be done here and there and site is not loading on tablets and smartphones. But it's a nice lean theme - thanks.

hello, this is my first post here, so here is my site I maintain using a wonderful theme Montezuma (which I think is the best theme ever):

What would you say?

I am loving the diversity of this theme. Here are two very different examples I put together:
www.thestrapsaver.com

www.ItalianSchoolNJ.com

For the Italian School, the
client preferred the left sidebar vertical menu to a "horizontal, collapse to a sidebar". go figure!

JMS, those sites look great. The Italian school client didn't want some sort of mobile menu? On a mobile device (cell or tablet), visitors are going to have to scroll through several screens of menu items to get to the content. If not a mobile menu, then maybe use the push/pull classes that Flyboy elaborates on in this post so the menu comes after the page content on a mobile device.
