Hey, I’m new to the forums. I’ve been reading CSS Tricks pretty regularly but never really ventured inside here for some reason.
I’ve been doing web sites for a couple years now but I feel like I’m just now getting the grasp of good crisp looking design. At least that’s how I feel. I need some more opinions. If you could check out http://www.betaftw.com and let me know what you think of everything, I’d appreciate it. It is a work in progress.
A couple things to note:
It’s not finished. The single.php is still in need of some ids and classes, especially around the comments area.
I plan to have a main featured post with the newest post on the front page that spans the width of the site (around 800px) to give the front page a little more pizazz.
Looks nice. I love clean and effective design. Personally, I’d do something with your nav buttons because the type isn’t very smooth. I see you’re going for a small there, but I’m sure 1,2 more pixels larger and more clear would have the same effect and just be that tad more polished.
one small thing i would add is to add some ‘padding:bottom’ to the ‘.post-ratings’… right now when you roll over a star, the box bounces to allow room for the "1 star, 2 star, etc…" text. the bottom padding should alleviate that.
edit: the first post with the full content is the one that is affected with the bouncing.
