Does anybody fancy being a content creator

Postby sebsmith » Mon Dec 02, 2013 7:32 am

So, the new website has the option for non-coders to create and maintain site content. The interface is a WYSIWYG editor (What you see is what you get) so if you can use a word processor and the internet then you should be able to handle it!

You will need a good understanding of the club, the system rules and world history... :D

If someone wants some content on the site, maybe they don't know it or aren't confident what they know is complete.
I'm happy to work with someone/check/give them what ever info they require

I'm happy to write stuff - although all written 'articles' might want to be subject to editing ala wiki.

It would be worth putting forward some topics and themes for consideration.

I have done a draft of content for various pages but haven't run it past Ant yet. Didn't know you were close to getting the new site working or I'd have hurried it up.

New site gives me a headache though.

I lost the well to live fixing the stuff on the old site, so decided that rather than throwing good time after bad, I'd just launch the new site and fix that instead...

You be more specific on the 'Gives me a headache' front so I can fix it?

Makes sense :)

I'm not sure about the headache tbh. Prob the same stuff Alex noted like the small text and red writing. There is a problem with text overlapping on my phone but I have more problems on laptop, after reading a couple of posts I have to leave site :( I'll try to note what I notice next time. Maybe I just miss the soothing taupe of the old palate!

Have modified the background colour to be the same as the old site...

Is that any better?

Hi Seb,

It is a lot better...but if you made it "EXACTLY" like the old site, everybody would think Christmas had come early. For example:
- The cornflower blue background makes me feel like I am in a padded cell with bright lightbulbs dangling from the ceiling.
- The green background is not the warm rich green from the old site, but the green of a frosted lawn in a cemetery. [EDIT - Actually it is exactly the same colour - just checked. It's just an optical effect of cornfower blue on my retinas]
- The Brown text in the title bar is overpowered by the insipid blue background from a pastel nightmare out of a Ctthulu induced dream.
- I think you get the idea ;-)

Basically the site is very cold and spikey, whereas the old one was warm and welcoming. I would offer to help...but I am completely useless at this sort of thing but I hope you don't mind the feedback.

Nope, always happy to receive helpful feedback!

I've modified the colour of the forums on the main page to reflect the site's greens, and the background colour of the site (which is now the same green as the old site...)

I'll work on the browns, see if I can find something less nightmare inducing! :D

Thoughts?
