Two potential new templates

Now I remember why this template was a bunch of work: EE’s library on their site is actually quite small.  We’d have to hack on either of these a bit to make them fit.

As an alternative, going through our current templates and cleaning up may be just easier.

Here’s two possibilities (remember, evaluate layout, not colour scheme):
http://expressionengine.com/files/templates/view/firda_01/ (ditch the inset box)
and
http://expressionengine.com/files/templates/view/firda_03/ (buys us a shorter sidebar at the cost of some width.  I’d likely make the sidebars fixed width and use up the rest for the middle column.)

The first one lets us put a bunch of our links that we use all the time on the horizontal bar.

I quite like the first one, apart from the needlessly fixed width of it. We could use the floating “Reading” box for pending proposals.

First one

Another question regarding EE: Does it support adding tags to posts? If it did, we could incorporate that into creating proposals of specific types.

Also I think the Proposal categories need a cleanup (wth is the null category?)

First; it looks like the old BN!

Actually, current.
