i wanted to try rearranging my site's layout by having the entire width available for the page content. i currently have nearby pages, user options (login form, or username with avatar and links), online users, feedback links, statistics, and powered by sections in a sidebar on the left. for the rearranged layout i moved user options to the upper right corner and made everything else a column just above the footer.

there are some things i'm happy with and others i'm not quite so happy with. take a look and let me know what you think -- the current site is track7.org and the new design on my test server. if you had a track7 account a few months ago when i last copied the database to my test server try logging in with that -- otherwise feel free to create an account.

Your link doesn't work for your test server.

i tried it again and it works fine for me. the test server is server from port 8086 instead of 80 like usual, and some places (like where my brother works) block non-standard ports.

it's inconvenient but i can't host on port 80 because that's blocked from my end...

link worked for me...

The text of username & password are partially covered by the text boxes for the values on the top-right hand side of your site. Also, your background is watermarked and matches the header- when you scroll the site down, you have tree's on either side of the page that kind of seem out of place, although it looks cool when you're scolled to the top.

I'm kind of torn between the options. I like the idea of no sidebars... but I haven't been in favor of the seemingly waste of space to the left and right, especially if the window is maximized.

i probably should have tested in more browsers than just firefox i suppose .

i definitely see a problem in ie -- it appears to laying out those fields as if they took up a couple characters less space on each side than they actually do. i can't seem to figure out how it's doing that though -- i even tried putting it in a table to lay it out and it still had the same problem, so i really don't know what odd property ie is applying to those fields. it looks pretty awful though so i'll have to figure something out before putting this up on my actual site. if you have any ideas why it's doing that i'd be happy to hear them -- firebug isn't showing me anything.

it does seem to look okay after logging in though, thankfully.

< i>Also, your background is watermarked and matches the header- when you scroll the site down, you have tree's on either side of the page that kind of seem out of place, although it looks cool when you're scolled to the top.


i did that on purpose -- i like the trees on the side to come down the page with me since it's more interesting to look at than just a solid color.

you mean the fixed-width layout? i did that because i find it difficult to read incredibly wide paragraphs of text. i also have my browser window sized to 1024x600 (too many sites i need to visit fail at 800 width), which normally does a pretty good job of keeping paragraphs readably narrow. in the user options you can set it to use almost the full browser window width, which is how i have it set but isn't the default.
