A new 'skin' for HandResearch.com!

Post  Martijn (admin) on Fri Jul 22, 2011 3:22 am



I have developed a new modern skin for HandResearch.com - including a brand new drop-down navigation menu (featured with links to about 80 different sections of my website).

See: www.handresearch.com


Myself, I like it a lot ... ( Rock on! ) ... but I would like to hear the opinion of others!!


Do you like it?
(And would you consider it as an improvement compared to the old navigation menu?)

yes I like it Martijn. Your website is now so huge, it was becoming difficult to navigate. This new menu is much clearer & easier to find things. Thumb up

(I have been working on a make-over and drop-down menu for my site too, but it is taking me ages to do it!)

hi Martijn;

Your website and also this forum is great as far as content is considered. However look and feel and usability are bit amateurish and need serious and professional redesigning. wave

Hi waqar.an,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

But your feedback does not include any clue about what specific aspect you have in mind - actually, it sounds a bit like as if your thought are not the result of the new homepage.

(Maybe your thoughts were induced by the other pages???)

hi Martijn;

I think i overgeneralize my response or may be it was the pinkish color of the website made me think amateurish....Very Happy. Anyway the new website is impressive improvement over the previous one.
There are new trend in the web designing right now and may be following article well describe what i am seeing on thoroughly designed websites.

http://webdesignledger.com/tips/web-design-trends-in-2011

It include the creative artwork, color scheme, touch screen ready, integration with social networking websites, RSS streams and other nitty gritty.

Also you are using PHPBB for the forum which I think is older version because new version is very different. There are redundancy in your website and forum. Forum should have been included in the main website and website address should be same for your main website and the forum. Actually forum should be forum.handresearch.com and there should not be redundancy in website articles and forum content. I have noticed people responding to your blogs and website and forum on the same article which is not tidy. Also I am not able to find forum link in the drop down menu. wave

lol!
this made me laugh (sorry Martijn! ;-) ). MANY years ago...I am guessing more than 10 years?... when Martijn first showed me his new website (I think back then it was called "hand-in-hand") my comment was something like - "the content is great but I don't like the salmon colour, it is too pink"! (Martijn do you remember it?!) Very Happy

waqar, thank you for the link about website design.
Thumbs up!

Okay, thanks - I am glad to hear that you have noticed at least some of the the improvement.


Sorry, I think changing the 'skin-like' colour would not create any real improvement - simply because I think people have different perceptions about any colour (it would take far too much time to change all pictures involved and I doubt if that would really result in any significant improvement for all users).

PS. Your other comments go beyond the changes that I have implemented; e.g. this forum is not a subsection of my website because this forum is an open platform with a much wider purpose than my own interest, etc.

Hi Lynn, yes I remember.

(See my former comment - sorry, my website is far too 'amateurish' to imply a color change since I can oversee the implications for the 2000 pages, because I have experimented with lots of images that have been integrated with the background colour on many pages. So a colour change - instead of the 'skin-colour' - is no option).

I like the drop down box feature. When you scroll over the word signs, facebook and like, come up as the top layer and hides some of the list items. (in case you hadn't noticed - and maybe it's just my monitor)

Yes Patti, I have noticed the problem as well... it appears to manifest only with the buttons that I have taken from Facebook. But the problem doesn't manifest if I use buttons from other sources (which I have started to adopt in the 'hands in the news section').

So, I expect that soon I will be able to deal with that problem permanently.


Thanks!

There is some consensus about white space among professionals. Please have a look here:
http://naldzgraphics.net/design-2/11-reasons-why-white-spaces-are-good-in-graphic-design/
Also colors and spaces create the space of reference and shape the structure of learning.
These things effect fast unconsciously before we even notice it. We usually only come to know after much research.

HI Martijn, sorry - I wasn't suggesting that you change the colour. I was just amused to remember my first comment to you many years ago Wink. In fact I think that your colour schemes of background & font have become something of a trademark, easily recognisable as being 'handresearch'. Everyone will have different ideas about aesthetics & colour. I wasn't agreeing with waqar's word 'amateurish', I would apply that word to my own website Laughing
Since you first created the site there have been many trends in webdesign, which soon go out of fashion. You have focussed on creating interesting and useful content, research & info - which interests me much more than what colour it is! You have expanded it into a huge resource, and are also excellent at getting your site to the top of google etc. Because it got so big, it was becoming difficult to navigate, so I think you've done a great job with the new front page layout, drop-down menu bar etc, it's much clearer and easier to find things. Thumb up

Hi Lynn, thanks for explaining your thoughts once more.

Yes, I as well think that the 'skin-colour' is one of the aspects which discriminates my HandResearch.com from other websites. So that is indeed the other side of this skin-coloured coin... wave

Hello waqar.an,

Yes, that's correct: a link to the forum is now present at the bottom menu of every page updated with the new skin (next to a link to my new 'Multi-Perspective Palm Reading' website).

I hope this makes sense after I explained that the forum has a different purpose.

Thanks!
