Burnt Sugar the Arkestra - Protoype child

  1. Hey all,
    Still have some polishing & speeding up to do & a bit of content to add - but I think I'm happy with what's done so far.
    A Prototype child with only a small amount of (CPT)customization for my man's band.

    Kind of terrified to know what it's doing in IE/Windows - would be most appreciative if a few of you would peek at it & tell me if your computers burst into flames..
    (esp concerned about the audio player http://burntsugarindex.com/discography/not-april-in-paris-live-from-banlieus-bleues/

    Thanks everyone! - I've had so much help from you all (esp Justin!)

  2. The post title demanded a look!

    1. The site home page looks fine in IE8. Discography page also appears OK, although I didn't click onto anything there.

    2. If you are using Firefox as your browser, a handy addon is IE Tab 2, which views the site in IE while you are still in FF. I use this frequently to make quick checks of how things are working in IE.

    3. Just a subjective design thought: I wonder if the intensity (saturated reds) of the content area should be toned down so that the background doesn't compete as much with the text.

    Take the same repeating pattern you are using for the background, and desaturate it some (ie, if you have Photoshop, add a Black and White adjustment layer, then experiment with that layer's opacity. 100% opacity will render the pattern completely BW, 0% opacity will cause the BW layer to have no effect. You can find the right percentage for your needs.) Then save that repeating pattern, and use it as background for the content area.

  3. I agree with Bill's assessment. The text gets tough to read (especially for someone like me with bad eyesight) after a few lines. The background for text just need to be toned down.

  4. Thanks guys!
    I'll check out the IE tab for certain & consider your input regarding the background.
    Much appreciated

  5. Drag. IEtab2 doesn't work on a Mac.

    So - double thanks to Bill for looking at it in IE for me.

    I increased the opacity of the background behind the text - hopefully that'll do make it easier to read.

    Thanks again for the feedback
    cheers!

  6. I like the rollover effect on the header. Nice site.

  7. Thanks "only" ;-)

  8. Well everyone's a critic:). I like it!

  9. Thanks Craig!
    One day, I'll actually have time to finish it.
