@TheInfection – thanks, I think I will add a subtle box shadow at some stage of development, I will also be using jQuery for the transitions on the links for the extended browser support, although if a user who has a non-supported browser then it’s not like they’re going to experience something totally different, it’s just going to go to the solid colour on hover a bit quicker.
@jurotek – thanks for the input but i think I’ll leave my nav as it is now :)
@joshuanhibbert – thanks for the detailed feedback. I was using the inset box-shadow on the navigation hover also on the previous design so the picture would flow nicely but now it doesn’t I can see what you mean :) it will be a jQuery slider using a plugin for wp anyway, I just left it there for some structure.
I know about the page title that will be getting changed, haha, +1 for noticing though ;)
Regarding the gradient, it’s the first time I’ve used it in this way, I kind of like it but maybe it’s just a preference thing :)
Yeah I should add some more padding here and there to balance out the page. I’ll get to that definitly.
No the footer doesn’t need to be as ‘in your face’ like the navigation. I will look into seeing what colour goes good :) and thanks!
@joshuanhibbert, why wouldn’t you want to differentiate between navigation tab of active (viewed page) such as changing background color and bold font and change cursor to default and tell user, hey you are already on the page this tab belongs to so there’s no point to be clicking on that tab and treat this tab as other tab which takes you to another page. I’have seen it done and find it very helpful to user such as myself. There are tons of websites out there which don’t do neither and it frustrates the hell out of me.
@joshuanhibbert, no need to apologize bro, your knowledge of stuff is miles and miles ahead of what I know. Maybe with the cursor I went little too far. But my thinking about it is this. If the tab is already active, why make user believe that it’s clickable.
I’ve only got one comment on this design: if you remove the logo of the website, this design can be used on every other website. If I were you, I would rethink the whole design. Sorry too say this, but despite the logo nothing is about basketball: no real basketball colors (too soft), too fancy picture borders etc. These guys are suppose to be the “tuff” guys, so the world they’re!
After seeing your capabilities (because the design looks quite nice) I’m sure you can make a fabulous website for your brother-in-law’s basketball team! Keep on the good work!
