(RFD) Amiga.org mockup.
« on: May 05, 2009, 03:14:03 PM »
Good morning,

Since the other thread was getting crowded;

Just to give you an idea of what we're talking about in the other thread regarding Amiga.org's future, I've created a very BASIC mockup of what the site MIGHT look like if we went with vBulletin.

Again, it's very basic.

NO LINKS WORK

THERE MIGHT BE ERRORS ON THE PAGE

It's just an idea.

Check it with your Amiga and let me know if it works for you, keeping in mind, there may be coding errors since I was in a hurry and Dreamweaver ain't what it used to be, especially when trying to code backwards to HTML 3.x

Looks ok to me. The community make Amiga.org, not the design. But as you are after comments about the design... the blue is a bit harsh on the eyes in the logo/header area.

Yeah I have to agree.  Any new layout will take some getting used to, no matter what it is.

It`s such a bloody shame that the site has to change, but there`s  nothing we can do about that.

As long as we can keep the Random Photo section lol!!! :-D

It looks same on OWB and IBrowse, so technically it seems to be working for old browsers too.

Looks good! just tried it with:
OWB 3.12
Ibrowse 2.4
Aweb APL Lite 3.5.09
Voyager 3.3.126

All of them displayed just fine and alike with the exception of the blue strip in Voyager which appeared as a rectangle on the left instead but still had the A.Org logo and text.

Agreed. I LOVE the random photos!!

The mockup using iBrowse & AWeb looks great. And yes, Voyager goofs the blue bar up top AND the links section above it. 'New Posts' is positioned under 'Links' and 'Gallery'. The blue *is* harsh, but that can be toned down obviously. Maybe make it Workbench 1.3 blue  :-)  

Overall though, looks great!

Looks great. Keep up the good work.

(Might want to take a look at it in IE7 though. The links on the top are all on the left. :roll: )

This is where we will begin running into problems.  Classic Amigas can't understand even basic CSS, while the "td align=right" tag has been depreciated and isn't even supported by IE 7.

What that means is that to get it to look right on both, I've got to use both the td align tag AND the CSS, which both confuses the hell out of browsers AND makes for a slow site.

Tell me about it. I work at a web design company. Looks great in everything else I have tried though.  :-)

I like the current design better. New one looks like its designed by a programmer.

I know you're more interested in Amiga browsers here, BUT:

Looks good. :-)

Viewed it with Internet Explorer 8.0.6
and Firefox 3.0.10
and Opera 9.6
and Seamonkey 1.07, and 1.1.16 (just realized I had not upgraded in awhile)

The layout seems the same in all browsers, and I don't see any kind of errors.

I like the larger logo--it looks cleaner, sharper, especially against the more vibrant blue.

Had a brief look via AWeb3.5 on AmigaOS3.9, looks good, didn't see any oddities.

Viewing it on FireFox 3.0.10 currently, more or less the same.

I like the look of it so far.

Just as a matter of preference it should show top 10 recent posts and hot topics... Otherwise, looks great...
