New Layout

Post by 12bar » Fri Apr 05, 2013 11:54 am

As mentioned already, I'm in the process of moving all non-forum content into a content management system, so it's easier for me to maintain this site. I'm cleaning up a bit, correcting typos, removing images with unclear copyright and adding some features like print/pdf export. I hope you like it - suggestions welcome.
Some content is still in the queue.

First impressions - I like the look of it. I'm reaching an age where change makes me want to run away, but this looks good.

It's a nice clean design. Also easy to see where things are. :clap:

The Print/PDF feature is very helpful/useful.

Nothing occurs to me at the moment as far as suggestions go I'm afraid.

I'm sure there's a good deal of work going into this - hopefully the greater ease of site maintenance makes it worth it.

Though I'm very grateful this site exists at all in whatever format. :thumbsup:

Me, too, so it took a long time to make the decision. But most things will work (I hope...) as before.

Mhh, yes, maybe, no, mhhh..... One thing that disturbs me is the light colored selection bar in the dropdown menus. I{ have to look twice.
I do get the reason and understand it. I'm not to happy with the "generic" (general) layout, but I guess that's the way almost all cms driven environment look.

Still, good job Gerd !

Thanks for the feedback. The good thing is, I still can change the layout and colors as I want. So just tell me what colors to change and we'll test it... :dance:

Background is now white, font bold, plse check.
