New Layout

Postby DaveSpeedoEvans » Mon Oct 13, 2014 5:41 pm

Hey guys,

Since the site name/domain changed I've been meaning to give the site a refresh.

What do you guys think?

Keen to hear positive and constructive feedback - haha.

I miss the little Speedo shaped icons that indicate unread topics! But seriously, fresh looking update and thanks for keeping the site going.

Thanks guys, I'll keep tweeking with the layout over the next few weeks. Takes me a while to get used to a new layout as well.

The design templates just seems to slowly break over time with new versions of the software. Happens with my blog as well, I get tired of stuff that doesn't work so then I have to stump up and make the change.

I like it. I think the banner at the top of the page could do with a bit of a makeover though, looks a bit 'cheap', maybe a proper image logo?

Looks great though and what's more important is that the content here is fantastic.

One thing that I find annoying is that uploaded pictures show up in scrollable windows. Would be great if you could somehow tweek that. I like to be able to see the whole picture....

I like it but the spinning logo at the top, while cute the first few times, is going to get old really fast for me.

Yeah I'm not a fan of the spinning logo thing either. I'll get around to changing that.

The photo thing I'm going to tweek. It does suck when people post photos that are 4 times the page width so that will help that but right now it is too small.

I miss the speedo shaped icones, too. And I'd prefer a brighter template. But I think the new front end is surely an improvement.

What do you think about this quick draft?
