New layout
« on: November 09, 2013, 03:33:56 pm »
I have put the new layout in place now. It seems to have worked okay - I have only tested on IE 10 and Chrome so far, maybe someone has Firefox to test it.

Take a look at the new home page in the site root : http://aidreams.co.uk

I hope that's to people's liking  :)

Any problems let me know.

Had a quick look around.

The homepage is nicer, more useful to me.

Liking the larger fonts around the whole site.

All looks good so far  8)

Thanks Data and thank you for all your assistance and thoughts, especially the nice new header image   O0

I prefer the bigger font too, much easier to read - is that age ?  ;D

I tried to cater to small and big screens, so there is some compromise in places. I don't know how many people use 1024 width these days on a desktop, but I think that resolution may be more common on mobile devices, not sure really.

Checked the site over on my Android phone with it's built in browser, works great  O0

Freddy,

At first I thought my browser took me to the wrong page, then upon second glance, I was quite nicely surprised!! I love it! It looks so Professional, clean and neat! The larger font and the blue color scheme is so...hip...if I may borrow a word from the 60's. ;)

Really neat job my friend and all looks and works perfectly in my Mozilla Firefox 25.0.

Thanks again!

Thanks Bragi  :)

And Art, I'm glad it was a pleasant surprise. Yes it's much easier to read now, I can lean back in my chair more  ;D

Good to read that it's working in Firefox. It's getting a lot easier to design for different browsers nowadays, Chrome, FF and IE are all good browsers now. I only had one annoying bug to get around in IE so I count myself lucky.

Do you guys like the new homepage ?

I like the clean, easy-to-read menu selections across the top along with the graphic fingertips making a digital "selection".
Below, it's like a listing of newsworthy articles, easily displayed for one to choose then read.

Overall, you nailed it...spot on for today's digital user environment!!

Now LEAN BACK and enjoy a nice warm cup of tea!! ;) O0

I added a couple of adverts, one to the bottom of the page and one in the right hand side. I hope no one minds. It helps to pay the bills and will go towards commissioning new articles and things like graphics that I cannot make myself.

 :)
