css3_Facelift - Modern mobile looks for your HotPotatoes


Status: Retired 24 Mar 2016. See the successor Facelift Responsive. This page is only for reference.

I've heard some people comment on the looks of HotPotatoes exercises; that they look very old fashioned. Indeed, their layout was designed quite a while ago. However, with some smart CSS you can give them great modern 'iLooks'.

I tweaked the original CSS and I offer you the custom file for download from the Add-ons section css3_Facelift v1.5. The zip contains a Howto pdf. To get an idea of the new looks of the HotPotatoes exercises created with the new stylesheet, see:

Of course, the colours are entirely your choice.
