i hate this
yeah i dont like it either, you should have to click a link to open every new post, salacioussound has this layout too and it sucks!
This isn't a good layout no offense. You should go with the traditional and just find good colors. Black backgrounds are always kind of a bummer in my opinion.
i disagree. it's different and might take some time to get used to but i like how you can see multiple posts on the main page.
dig the new banner at the top. that's it. format is awkward with only being able to view partial posts, and there's no "tags" section.
ok let's answer a few things.I like this layout as it looks more professional and I like that you can see multiple posts on the main page instead of having to scroll down. This last fact is both more user friendly to newcomers and it allows for readers to pick more easily which posts they would like to read without having to go through other posts.In the end, we are debating attempting to make the "simpler" option available via a button which will switch its structure. This will obviously take some time and work but can be expected.We know there is no tags section, we are currently working on adding a tags page for readers who would like to search the blog in that fashion. We feel as though searching the blog through tags is a less used feature then just using the search bar which works fine. Having the tags on the main page just seems to clutter the main page.What would greatly be appreciated are comments on color scheme. But I'm sorry Tony, I see no problem with black, it's just a place that we disagree.Lastly we respect and appreciate all comments in regard to the new layout but please state what your problems are with it, the first comment of "I hate this" with all due respect is not very helpful to us. All we are trying to do is better serve our readers.-J
labels are now in a drop down menu underneath blog archive.
Not a fan guys... too many tabs quite a difficult layout to navigate around! It doesn't do your blog justice
First off, it's awesome in and of itself that you are redesigning the website. Forward-thinking is always appreciated.But... it feels a tad jumbled, among other problems. The MooTools picture carousel feels unnecessary, and, at least with my slow internet, looks rather strange for a second or two (http://i43.tinypic.com/296okfm.png). On top of that, the background is large enough that it takes a little while to load, leaving a hot pink background. And, while I love the new header, the color scheme of the website is everywhere. Yellow, green, blue, a brown border on the navigation... Simple is always better.
errrr, im not really that happy with it, that said, like the top of the website, think the sidebar seems a bit jumbled still, would like to see the date of the post on the front page still, font for the title of posts i would change, idk, maybe think the graphic for the best of was ok a little big, little distracting. idk, it does say under construction, i mean word up we need to update the look of the blog, and i know i dont really have the final call, just some things to consider, anyways gl
i take back anything about the sidebar
like to see a sans seraph font on the top of the posts instead
