Feedback on dcmembers site
« on: March 05, 2009, 04:48:31 AM »
Hey I finally made some time to update my dcmembers page with my ahk scripts I've created over the years.
There's some issues with screenshots being too big (or the page isn't wide enough) but apart from that I'm pretty happy with it.

So I'm looking for feedback for anything that can be improved, from finding things easier to annoyances etc.
The link is http://justice.dcmembers.com/

(just used a slightly modified template for the design - andreas08 it's called - didn't really want to spend the time to make something unique as I like the functional & practical look of this)

Cheers mouser :) Am really impressed with WebsiteBaker btw, installing addons and templates is as easy as pointing to a zip file on your pc, and it's very flexible if you want to without ever becoming 'open-source complicated'.

Need to add some more donationcoder links in tho.

if you sort out the screenshots you're sorted I'd say

Nice - layout clear.

Couple of things -

obvious image size problems you mentioned alread
the 'List of Changes' links on the download page going to another website is a bit clunky - especially as it is a completely different layout and you have to use the BACK button to return to the download page.

I think you are right - WebBaker looks very nice and easy to use for simple websites but it seems to have a number of things missing. One example is an RSS feed which would be ideal for your site to notify users of updates etc.

Actually I read on their forum that the news module has an rss feed build in.
http://justice.dcmem...ws/rss.php?page_id=1 in my case. edit: added this to site via feedburner.

Thanks for the comments so far :)

Added sitemap, rss-autodiscovery based on html 5, wider layout 960 wide so screenshots don't mess up layout, and directed downloads to the page.

I realise the changelog is a bit clunky, but this way does not require any work from me to publish the changelog it is generated from the comments i send in and its available as RSS and plain text link.

On a WSB note I wasn't too happy I couldn't change templates from the admin section but with the Addon File Editor module that's solved now. WSB is ideal really.Breadcrumbs would be nice or make it clearer what section we're in, requires a bit of css fiddling.
