I think it's no secret myself and Rykos have been working on a new layout for some time now. >.> Along with this, I'm recoding pages in places that need some optimization along the way -- hence why it's taking longer than it should. (I want it all perfect. ;D)
But I figured it was time to give you guys some layout examples.
As you can see, we're using the new header. Tyme was awesome and listened to your suggestions and made tweaks, and I think it looks fantastic now. It also changes with the seasons, as you can see in the second version. ;D
The user tools bar slides up and down the page with you, and if you notice the little + and - signs on the side of it, that means you can collapse and show the little panels. Refreshing a page will still keep it collapsed or shown too - it remembers!
On the enclosure page, I took another suggestion and made it so if you hover over dinosaur names, you'll be able to see their thumbnails! :D I think this is super useful, as I'm not the only one who forgets which dinosaur is which. >.>
All of the buttons are new and shiny, and lots of pages will look so much better when the new layout is implemented.
Also -- you'll have the option to show the old header, as well as disabling all the banners entirely. Some people don't like having the banner and use adblock anyway, so I think this will be even more useful. (But I for one, shall be using the new banners!)
Oh and, it'll automatically redirect you to the page you were last on when you login. >.>
Just wondered if any of you guys had any thoughts/opinions/comments to give? :D
