Site design suggestions
shvelo commented on 3 March 2014 at 7:57 pm UTC

Here are some suggestions from me:

  • The fixed navbar isn't necessary, static one would be better

  • Add some space before and after the slider

This is all I can remember now, I'll add later

While I appreciate all suggestions the fixed navbar will be staying as I find it useful.

As for the slider, do you mean the image carousel? As I don't see a need to put space before and after, it's just wasted white-space then.

I agree with Liam, I like the fixed navbar. Though while we're talking about suggestions, I think the mobile site needs reworking. Info like most recent comments, the facebook page, and such are kept at the bottom of the homepage, but if you scroll down to it the page loads more articles automatically. So the bottom part needs to be moved, removed, or loading previous articles should be done manually (which I'm in favour of.

The infinite scroll can be turned off if you are logged in FYI, not sure of the best way to show/hide them for mobile though.

I usually hate fixed position elements, but in this case I really like the top bar being always accessible. It doesn't take up too much room.

Ok nevermind, just remember that wrapping a fixed element in .container doesn't make sense, the container has to be INSIDE the .navbar

Full text from a comment I made somewhere:

For real.

EDIT: Using code tags still turned : and P next to one another into a smiley face:

There should probably be a non-"code" markup which disables smileys inside the given area, and a "code" markup should probably also disable smileys inside it. I assume there's a place on the forums to report this kind of thing....

 : P :P 
^^^^^^ That's inside a code tag. For real.

Yeah our code tag implementation sucks. It will be fixed, eventually. Better to post new issues in new posts, rather than extremely old ones that are nothing to do with it ;)
