Design/Layout Comments?

Posted 09 October 2009 - 05:50 AM

Hi, (its me again :))

So I've updated my forum, GraphicsCode: http://www.graphicscode.net/ from my previous topic and I'm not too sure about the overall blue background. Any suggestions? Also, I've got the forum's arranged in a specific order, but if anyone has suggestions, that would be appreciated. Oh and general comments are fine :D

Thanks.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I think it looks great, especially the header. The white seems a little harsh but that may just be me :P

Do you mean the white inner background? Or around the logo?

I think i know what he means. You should try using a lighter shade of white. Not gray, but give it some darkness so it's not jumping at my eyeballs with knives.

It looks great, but you've got blue/greens on a stark white and so the white really shows.

Hello again,

Just an update: I've changed the inner background color so its not vibrant white: http://www.graphicscode.net

hey firebolt on a large screen your inner header repeats and doesn't match up.
may i suggest you take the repeat off and just use a background colour of: 016CBA.

Thanks Tom. I've been asking members to see if that would be the case. I'll see what I can do.

ETA: would
background-repeat: no-repeat;
do it?

Yes, that would keep the image from repeating.

Thanks. ~ So, would some one with a large screen (Tom) please check if it worked? Also, if you wouldn't mind, could you post your screen res and a screen shot. Thank you if you can help.
