|Main Page link to Modding Tutorials||1||00:57, 12 July 2015|
|What happened?||6||08:30, 9 March 2015|
The main page links to two "Mods" links at the moment, including "Modding Guide". This modding guide is, however, a single modding tutorial which would be much better off with a link on Modding Tutorials than on Main Page. I would like the "Modding Guide" link replaced with a "Modding Tutorials" link; [[Modding Tutorials]]
Any reason the main page was changed so much? I thought it looked a lot better with all the images rather than just text...
Agreed... why were the images removed? Now the main page looks as bland as nutrient paste.
There was some serious filth in the code, a lot of the layout was poorly formatted and not consistent with the design, and a lot of the code was related to now-absent translation features of the wiki, and the images were eating a ton of bandwidth and did not work on non-huge screen resolutions or mobile devices. And the news sections were duplicating a lot of info that is better found elsewhere (Ludeon blog).
I very much hope someone will take a shot at jazzing up the front page a tab - in a way that won't murder our bandwidth, works well on all devices, and doesn't duplicate constantly-changing info that belongs on the blog. Please go to it if you're willing to do so! I agree it looks a bit bland now but we need a design that works well on logical and technical levels and doesn't just look pretty. Simple and tasteful are good.
Separator lines are a bit misaligned on my screen. Connect them?
Honestly I preferred it before; it no longer makes use of wide screen resolutions and the intro text really feels packed in.
Check wikipedia for a good layout like this that fills the space cleanly.
I will have a look at that picture when im not at work, as it is blocked. They were never joined on my screen either at any point. The main problem is they arn't actually borders of boxes they're undelines of the header class. I can look into changing the Text settings and border settings of the boxes if you think it will look better.
Ok i opened it up in firefox and saw the issues. Sorry im an IE guy which is aweful as IE is probably the worst for testing :P i have updated the in table styles and changed some widths.
- The intro text is now same width as the table bellow section.
- Link sections reduced to compensate
- The top tables width is now 100% maximising on larger res screens.
- Logo aligned to center for FF and Safari
