Re: A work in progress
Yeah, it looks very nice indeed.
I agree about the custom permalinks. You are hurting your SEO
by using what you are using now.
The only issue I noticed (if you can call it that), is that the background for your header loaded much later than the rest of the page. Like about 1 to 2 seconds later. It was very noticeable. You may want to see if you can optimize that image a bit more.
Other than that I really like it. Great job!
