Re: [Gimp-web] GIMP Site Redesign

I only picked the brick wall image because it was similar to the one in the design we were given. I don't 
plan on keeping it like that but I'm having some difficulty finding something else that fits there. Any 

I've considered constraining the header as well but never got around to doing it. I'll do it in the next 

The navigation bar struck me as weird while I was coding it. It seemed out of order but then I remembered 
that with the redesign, might come a change in paths and directories of the site. I'll leave it like that for 
now til I know for certain what the links are going to be and if we'll even use this design.

Thanks for the feedback. It really helps a lot!

Ok I've changed a few things since I last posted here. In this version I've:

  - Made the body static to prevent issues with different screen sizes
  - Fixed the buttons on certain displays
  - Repositioned the background images
  - Added hover and active states to buttons
  - Finished the the navigation bar
  - Linked everything to the current GIMP website
  - Fixed the spacers glitching out in IE
  - Fixed button images being applied more than once on WebKit browsers

Overall, I think the home page is just about done. All I have left is to:

  - Style the slideshow
  - Add the GIMP logos
  - Finish testing on different screen sizes

As for the news, according to the design the Mike proposed, the news would
have to be on a separate page.

So yeah, tell me what you guys think! Any and all feedback (positive and
negative) is welcome and much appreciated! Here's the link for anyone who
hasn't seen it already:

I *really* dislike the brick wall, and don't see how it fits in with
the GIMP's image. Gives me the feeling of a builder/decorator's web site,
not a high end graphics editor.

If the main body is to be constranied to a particular width, then so
should the head area (brick image, slide show, and menus). It looks
unbalanced/top heavy on my 1600x1200 monitor.

The 'News' menu item should be named 'Home' and be the first in the menu
as it links to the site root

I certainly hope Wilbur is included in the need to add logos ;-) Any
GIMP web site without Wilbur would be just wrong IMHO ;-)

I like the main body. It is clean and uncluttered, making it simple to
see the point of the content. Keeping the orange/tan colour for the
buttons is a nice echo of the current site.
