Boston Legal Source
Posted 03 June 2006 - 05:55 PM
Fansite for ABC hit Boston Legal, from award winning producer David E. Kelley (Picket Fences, Ally McBeal), with an all star cast including James Spader, William Shatner and Candice Bergen.
Boston Legal Source includes Forums, Galleries, Episode Guide and Cast Bios.
All feedback appreciated.

The header looks pretty good to me...then there's the stupid google ads...I'm so sick of seeing those...they ruin sites.
Then everything below looks like something straight out of phpbb or some templated type of thing.

The "Next Episode" is different to "Latest Episodes" - they dont line up and look offputting.
Overall - very BLAND colours. I would like to see some rounded edges, and larger text. - THE TEXT IS REALLY SMALL.
On your top horizontal nav - the onmouseover images are slow in replacing.
As mentioned - the google ads totally muckup the website.
There is WAY too much options/actions for each news item. In some cases the actions - seed etc. are more than the Article!!
Whats with the ads - Please take a moment to visit our sponsor. You will be redirected to [a href=\"http://crane-poole-schmidt.com/episodeguide/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://crane-poole-schmidt.com/episodeguide/[/a] in 3 seconds.
What rubbish. Anyways - works but I dont like it.
The FORUMS button on the horizontal nav brings me to Donations! - what a suprise!
Anyways - its a little bland IMO. More colours, images, and larger text.

The chance of getting the donation page is now a lot lower as is the chance of an intersitial ad.
I don't understand what the Google Ads do though?

The Latest/ Next Eposide divs - are improved - but still broken in IE.
ScreenGrab -> [a href=\"http://kartbuilding.net/misc/boston.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://kartbuilding.net/misc/boston.jpg[/a]
It just looks very off putting.
As for the google ads - well change the appearance/colour of them. If they had the same bland & light colour as you have the website - they wouldnt be as noticeable.
You have also too much top and bottom padding around the google ads.
Move up the Main DIV closer to the google ads.
Your Navigation Menu looks VERY basic and PLAIN. Get a background image or something in there. Bullets even.
P.S. A small and neat Google Ads, as I have on [a href=\"http://www.kartbuilding.net/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.kartbuilding.net/[/a] is all that is required, rather than a huge div with colours etc. I must remove the google search however - it doesnt do much.

I have made the 'redirect' text a lot bigger and changed the colors of the Google Ads.
I will work on the padding issue as well as smaller ads - but the current design is built for leaderboards and displaying leaderboards from one company and small ads from another cause inconsistency.
I have also nipped the homepage problem in the bud

wow, another one of these sites by you. How many TV shows are you gonna make the same exact fan site for?
I think all TV shows are different
As for how many sites I'll make - until I run out of webspace
I believe they are all pretty different and the ones coming up will be running a different CMS system so no worries there.
