Site Remodel

hammer1Hi all.. tiny note, did a smidge of a remodel to the blog. I’d appreciate any feedback on it. Thanks.

    I dig the redesign but would love a list of links to popular posts (hit rating, etc.)

  • Heyas,

    Like what you did, couple of small things:
    - The side bar only becomes visible if you go to home, so if you navigate to a page directly (I got there through my google reader) you don’t see a side bar and are a bit lost on where to go for other information
    - Not contained sites make me cringe on my 24″ screen. I have to move my head from side to side to be able to read and that’s not pleasant, I can only imagine 30″screens. Give it a max width and you’ll be fine.

  • I like it- gives it a TK feel (I miss TK), but I’d put the navigation below your banner so that it’s easier for guests to find, and draw more attention to it in some way so that it is easier to find and the eye is drawn to it.

    I have a pte-peeve on website that have no fixed width – depending on if I have a sidebar up or what monitor I’m on at the moment the width varies and if it gets too wide, I have trouble reading the text unless I re-size the browser. Just a observation – don’t know (since this was a very short post) if that is the case with yours.

  • I like the new design; very simplistic yet effective. If there’s one thing I would complain about, it’s that the main column is fluid, making it very wide on my wide screen monitors (and thus more difficult to read).

    Hey there, your website looks great. However, I was actually just trying to find a good place to post this. I was looking through the sites you listed as lock sites and found out that deathcoil.org is actually a DK site, not Lock. I understand the mix-up as both races have a deathcoil spell… and just thought you should know.

    Thank you all for your feedback.

    I have a wide monitor but I never maximize the browser window so I hadn’t noticed how disjointed it looked. I’ll look into that and get it set to fixed width.

    Oh, WRT “looks like TK” I did take one of the header images in TK.. but if you watch when the page reloads it loads a different header image. At the moment I have 9 or 10 in rotation.

    Thanks!

  • Love the rotating banner, Nibs, and the current max width is great. :) I have found that variable-width themes are hell to work with–mine was that way forever, until I switched to Thesis. I still prefer variable width, but I can do without the headaches. ;)

  • The site looks nice. The rotating banner is nifty too. :)
