LEESEAN.NET Design Tweaks

I’ve made a few tweaks to LEESEAN.net to make the design more user-friendly.

The most obvious change is the removal of the big photos that showed up in the header.  After careful consideration, I decided that while I like them, they were taking up too much space in the browser window, especially on small laptop monitors.  I removed the header image so that users won’t have to scroll down so far to start reading content.  If you miss the old header images, you can see them all here.

The other design tweaks are very minor.  I’ve increased the total width of the site to 850 pixels, and played with some of the font settings to increase legibility.  I’ve also brought back an updated Links page.

This site is a perpetual work-in progress.  I learn more PHP and CSS every time I make design changes, so it’s an educational exercise as well.  How does the new site look?  Feedback appreciated.

Foossa Facts

  • I’ve often thought about removing the heavy armor taking up all my precious high-traffic adspace up top. But then I remember that I’m not a pro blogger. I liked your photos – they gave your blog a distinct personality that fits your actual real life one. And aesthetic.

  • Hmm, maybe I can find a way to bring them back somehow, but smaller. After I increased the width of the site, the photos don’t fit any more, so it might take some creative Photoshopping.
