Hey, I was just looking where to say how am I glad you changed design of the site. Now it seems to me more clean and sophisticated. I really like the new looks. Loads faster than the old version, stretches good in various resolutions.
Fonts are really easy and nice to read, and the new navigation bar is really slick.
But, i stumbled upon several flaws, so I will mention here just trying to help.
First of all - stretching works ok for resolutions above 1024. There are still a lot of guys (maybe almost blind) that still use the 1024x768. So on this resolution you have some content from the center main content column overlapping the right column. Navigate to change avatar page and take a look by yourselves.
And last, but not least, you do not have a mobile device version. I am using my phone with xhtml capable browser a lot lately to see what's new on daniweb, and sometimes it seems hard to navigate whenever there are many posts in one thread.
Still, despite all of the above, I really love the new look and feel. Keep up the good work, and on my side, if I notice some flaw, be sure I will tell you about that.
This wider layout adjustment will make long lines of code easier to read as they are less likely to be broken down in odd places. Dani need just fix some small bug as listed above and in no time people stop complaining about it
WaltP: Huh? Community tab? Not sure what you mean.
There used to be a tab that when directly to "Coffee Shop" or whatever. Now, thanks to
Community Center doesnt have a text title? for me all the other sections have text names in the bar, bur community center just has the pic of the guy from the welcome video? took me bloody ages to find it
I see you didn't remove it, you just hid it. Seems both of us had no idea what the head meant.
Why do the tabs (Soft-Dev, Web-Dev, etc) have to be so large? They'd look better sleeker, about half as high and maybe 1/3 shorter.
Another small point:
de dropdown menu's for forums work with onhover(), but the dropdown for Control-panel (which I can't get used to) works with onclick()
Perhaps choose one of two, to keep it consistent?
It seems some people do not like changes. It is really good you changed the layout, now I really need to explore daniweb again, and I might say I have stumbled into places I've never been before...
There is a book about two mice and a cheese. The poor guys have lost their cheese and were whining and crying about it etc...so they thought they'll never find a cheese so good as the lost one, etc, etc...So mouse no 1 kept on crying and laying in the bed waiting for the inevitable end, and no 2 went on searching, so at the end no2 found a room full of cheese - not only 1 piece of cheese, but a whole room.
And they lived happily ever after....
So, guys, stop crying about the old stuff, take a look around, nothing is the same - this change is for good.
P.S. If I find the author of the cheese story about these mice I will tell you so you could read the book by yourselves - it is quite entertaining.
