New site, altered design, btcartoons.com
Posted 22 July 2006 - 09:02 PM
and I was wondering what you guys think of my design.
Also please check out the cartoon database, what you guys thought about that?

- Seems good to me
- What's with the bad background images, they just look messy. Just put a heading on each of the sections to say whos work they are.
- Very messed up in FireFox (footer)
- I don't know...I wouldn't call that art
- It looks like a totally different site. Try and skin your forum so that it looks like your regular site
- Looks fine
Ye Olde News:
- Why don't you make your own news script?
It is a good start but there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. Stick with your main design and bring that through to the other parts of your site.

The cartoons divs are fixed and look exponentially better.
As far as making my own news thing I'm pretty happy with what I have, since it's not a blog i don't really care about what it does as far as design and archival, I just want to be able to display the latest news, and I'm toying with the idea of taking off the "ye olde news" link altogether.
I am still open to more critiquing.

The body text would be easier to read if you increased the line-height (say to 150%). You might be surprised at how much difference that would make.
OK, so why not identify approximate file size in the link text, just so I'll know (that would be a trivial task if the list is generated by php automatically, otherwise open up NotePad and edit the page)
Be Aware that some of the toons are fairly large file (>3 MB,) and may take some time to begin to load.

Jesus! so that's how all of those sweet loking sites do it. I've known about line height fr ages, i jst never knew how muc h of a difference it made.
in the mean time, anything else anyone?

Its just a little confusing. I would have the main navigation bar there - and for the database pages - put a second smaller horizontal nav under the main one.

Your add comments to the news needs a lot of integration.
Your red text and dashed border on the main home page are very distracting. The red text been particularly a bad colour in this instance.

As for registering - it said my account had to be approved - but yet I could start a help topic.

P.S. steve, as far as having the database nv in the green nav section, i have some restrictions because i include the entire div into the header, i know i could get around that but im too lazy.

You shouldnt underline text - it makes it look like a hyperlink.
That cream sub-nav will do fine so.
Your Comments page needs integrating.
