Individual Entry Layout Opinions


I'd like to query forum members in regards to a potential layout tweak I'm considering. The change I'm debating is whether to transfer the newer page layout used on the individual carded figure entries (]example) and applying it to other areas of the site like the prototype gallery, which currently contains entries exhibiting the original page layout (]example). The title font doesn't show up the same when comparing the same pages in Firefox vs Internet Explorer on pages with the old layout, which irks me. Plus, I think I like the first photo(s) being more of the initial focus than the title (old layout has title above photos, whereas newer layout has it situated below the first or first and second photos). Since many of you who use the forums are fans of the website, I figured I'd see which of the two everyone prefers in order to help make my final decision. I definitely plan to stick with one of the two options shown.

Re: Individual Entry Layout Opinions


Mike,

After much debate I give my opinions.

I actually like option 2 myself! I think because it's more traditional and I like to have pics separated by text. That's said if you're having trouble with the older version option 1 is just as appealing and very clean looking.

I tend to agree with Ken, option 1 still good though.

I like Option 1. I want the pic right in my face when I click on the link and I love the SP logo.

Thanks for the responses thus far! Upon reading Ken's response in regards to him liking the photo being broken up by the text, I realized I may not have explained the change clearly, so I just want to make sure the opinions are still them same after further clarifying. Below you will now find three links (changed from two after 15again's suggestion) to the Green Arrow Painted Hardcopy entry; the first uses the original layout that is currently in place, the second shows the newer layout that is under consideration, and the third takes into account the suggestion provided by 15again:

]Current Layout

]Possible New Layout (Mimics Layout used on Carded Figure Entries)

]15Again's Suggestion

If everyone could take a look at these three links and re-evaluiate, I'd appreciate it.

Re: Individual Entry Layout Opinions


Now Im confused. So is it just the larger logo and the placement of the title? Those are the differences?

After looking at them again my vote would be none of the above emoticon

I love the large SP logo but dont like that you have to scroll down to see what the name of the entry is.

If you put the title right under the large SP logo it would be [sign in to see URL] my humble opinion.

Damn! Now why didn't I think of that? emoticon It's a very good suggestion, so I've edited my post to include it as one of the options under consideration.

Of the three new options in front of me I like 15agains suggestion. You get everything you need in it.
