Hi everyone, I am in the middle of changing my website look. It's pretty stressful for me because I'm not good with programming. So I'm hacking it together with existing themes and cutting/pasting things I find around. My front page is not ready yet, but here's an example page of an article:http://aram.dcmember...g/bluebeam-pdf-revu/
My goals are:
--widescreen, so articles are easy to read. I want it to feel like you are reading a piece of paper (8.5x11, like a magazine). I hate how most articles now are narrow. before this, if I put a medium sized picture, it pushes all the text aside and makes the article look super long. It's not pleasant to read. And I think narrow is the trend so people can clutter all the area around it to stick in ads and a bunch of other things that take attention away from the article. I truly hate it. I know, some people will say narrow is good to accommodate smaller resolutions or monitors, but those days are gone. Even the cheap monitors now are at least 1024 pixels wide. i want people to be able to read comfortably.
--simple and elegant. No clutter. No widgets around the sides. I don't want it to look like a blog. I want it to look like a place to read articles. I know I can't get away from the "wordpress" look, but it's still pretty clean and nice so far.
--one-column. No more multiple columns for me.
Anyway, I am loving it. if I do say so myself, it's the most easy to read website that I've come across, and I've only started!
Now, if only someone would come up with a nice CMS system that tranglos was asking about a while back.
