Hello all! Looking for some feedback on a new design. I know it's hard to give proper feedback from static images but this one's not quite ready for prime time. Still a ways to go with things, particularly the navbar. I've also experimented with mixing things up a bit. I think they work but look forward to what others think
It is indeed different, that was what I was shooting for. Yes, that's a screengrab from FF. I've tested it so far in that, Chrome, Safari and Opera and it displays the same in all of them. Haven't checked it in IE yet.
Possibly. Wouldn't be hard to switch it back. I actually think displaying the number of topics and comments is wasted space and serves no benefit. I'm thinking I may experiment with doing away with that all together and going with a dual column setup within the categories.
I'm not a huge fan of the vertical stripes in the background, but the gradients and graphics elsewhere (especially in the postbit) are really nice. I think all of the colors complement each other well, actually. I'm currently undecided on the forum list...I don't quite like the box around the threads/posts but imagine it'd look nicer when in use and not a static screenshot anyway. Nice work so far (as always), John!
