Home Forums Other Opinions on the CSS-Tricks new layout Re: Opinions on the CSS-Tricks new layout


Well this got a bit more response than I had thought it would >.>

Well, after a couple days, the site has grown on me a bit. Things are always a bit weird feeling after a major redesign. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the feeling of real disfavor with the redesign and and the feelings of uncomfortability due to the lack of experience with the redesign. Changing something people are used to, for better or for worse, always makes people uncomfortable.

I do like like the larger text, the footer, and the sidebar (although the sidebar has some weird gap issues in firefox, probably place holders for stuff Chris is going to put in later).

Now that I’m a bit used to it, the only thing I would disagree with is the fadeIn, fadeOut on the articles on the home page. It would be nice to see the date and comments and the Read On button without having to hover it.
