I have recently completely redesigned my web application to allow non-members data access and increase usability. This forum helped me greatly a couple weeks back (username – greelmo)… password reset didn’t work…
Just a question to everyone: am I being too anal, or is there a need for some content separation?
I’m kind of feeling like the account stuff could be better suited for a side bar in gray, or even just in the top black bar. Spanning down the page felt like a bit much with the side of it. That would highlight the basic functionality for anyone just visiting.
I do like how it does that. Maybe the size of it is what was originally bothering me, being the same size as both search functions to log in. What might work also is to create like a #eee colored bar that spans across the bottom like it does on the top in black. Shrink down the logo and try and fit all the other stuff in it and get rid of the need to scroll down.
