    Any feedback on usability, broken stuff, design, whatever?

    Getting ready to stop fiddling and start adding some real content for a "launch".

    Much thanks!

    A bit weird and a tad perverted, I like that. Some question sprung to mind:

    Why only a Misc category for the Posts? What is the different between Dailys (a list of blogrolls?) and Peeps? The login at the very bottom seems an odd and not so useful place to put it if it is for Members.

    Good luck.

    Thx for the reply asparagus.. weird and perverted heh -- is that referring to the logo I made? :)

    Haven't made any real posts, thus only the misc category. As I start putting some up, they will be expanded.

    The Dailys are sites I read regularly and the peeps are my two buddies who have sites. Since the peeps section will most likely never exceed 2 -- I've decided to combine them into the regular Links section..

    The login is just for me.

    That makes sense. Weird and perverted was about both the logo and your daily reading material and definitely not meant to be derogatory.

    I'm stupid, I posted the following in the wrong topic....

    Sorry for the delay! I reviewed your site and it is indeed very nice (and yes you seem just as anal as me). I really like the "footer" on each of your entries, e.g. the category, mail post, comments, etc. So much so it inspired me to finally do something about mine because I was putting it off for so long.

    One thing I noticed is you don't have your feeds set off. Perhaps a seperate heading in your sidebar would let people know the various feeds you offer. Perhaps a button?

    Now this is being really anal, but perhaps you could change the hover style of your post titles so they don't underline when the cursor is over them, you really don't need that.

    How about a friendlier 404 page? See mine: http://mayurpatel.org/asdf1234

    No navigation bar?

    And I'm sure this is something you plan on doing but promote promote promote.

    Nice job!

    asp - none taken :)

    mayur - that's a good idea about not underlining the title link.. How would I do that (and still keep the underlines on the rest of the links)?

    something like

    .h1 a:hover {text-decoration:none;}

    would that work?

    Nav bar will come as I need it.. Dont really need it yet I dont think.. I dunno tho. Was also playing around with a 3 column thing last nite (another sidebar on left) and targeting it more toward 1024*768.

    Yeah, my 404 page could stand to get some more info :)

    Thanks a lot both of yas..

    Joebar,

    As far as the hover text-decoration, and assuming you actually do use the h1 class, my css is as follows:

    h1.entrytitle {
    text-decoration:none;
    [place whatever styles you want here, i.e. color]
    }

    Then, look through the templates where the post title is being called and change it to something like:

    <h1 class="entrytitle" ... </h1>

    As far as resolution, I'd stick with a max of 800x600 unless you know for a fact you'd be dealing with the more sophisticated visitor. My stats show 40% youse 1024, 15% 800 with the remainder going higher than that. You have to do the lowest common denominator kind of thing.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, I think you're right about the size -- for now..... Will see what my visitors typically use, if I need more space I can move some of that stuff into individual pages via button bar up top.

    Will play around with the css.. thx

    Never said you didn't. Let everyone infer what they want....

    hehe

    Find me an image of a better techno-looking hot chick. I may need one if I make the logo wider down the line :)

    really nice design man, like the site content as well - kinda up my street

    how did you get your post images to align all differently like that?

    In my posts, I can only put images above the post text and center the image. If I want to align the image to the left next to the text in the post, the image messes up the post layer structure!!??

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Other than a changed header it's just another run of the mill Kubrick.

    Dont quite like the website advertisments. Try putting them to the footer like mine (http://www.juberblog.com).. but If your trying to make revenue...then good luck. Otherwise very nice site
