It will look 10x better.

Have a play around with the colours of the boxes you are putting your text in, also brighten the text on the navbar and perhaps consider adding a inner shadow to them.

  • [QUOTE=Adzter;37372104][t]http://puu.sh/Y36V[/t] Any c&c before I make it functional?[/QUOTE] The logo doesn't really match the rest of the page and as people have said the colours are way too dark. The ribbon the logo is contained in to me doesn't really suit the rest of the page but maybe it'd look better with a revised colour palette. Try colour lovers ([url]http://www.colourlovers.com/palettes/[/url]) maybe something like this: [url]http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/623761/Walking_Away[/url]

  • Is that even really information that needs to show up there though? I think changing that published/not published indicator to just read "incomplete" would be a lot better use of space unless you're anticipating there being more incomplete listings in there than completed ones?

You're taking up a huge amount of space to convey a very small amount of data/info.

  • Each one is a link to the respective category too. They look better as steps rather than just buttons.

  • Modifications/minor improvements in theme and then some bug fixes in code. Still a lot to do, don't get enough time after coming back from job: Settled on this button graphics: Button idle: [IMG]http://dropcanvas.com/files/1000000/52000/51872/big/buttonidle.PNG[/IMG] Button hover: [IMG]http://dropcanvas.com/files/1000000/52000/51875/big/buttonhover.PNG[/IMG] Button pressed [IMG]http://dropcanvas.com/files/1000000/52000/51872/big/buttonpressed.PNG[/IMG] Some WIP screenshots: [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/7847365826/][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8296/7847365826_2e9304d933_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/7847365004/][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8304/7847365004_9e66b37dc3_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/7847364632/][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8283/7847364632_dcd5470ddd_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/7847362988/][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8423/7847362988_35829a8d9a_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/7847361876/][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8293/7847361876_79a0a792b2_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/7847359748/][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8445/7847359748_c7c1a47488_c.jpg[/img][/url]

  • Holy screenshots batman! • Update/Reset button text isn't centred • Add more padding to the tabs, they need to be bigger • Still not a fan of the dark tile background • A lot of elements need vertically aligning (form labels, inputs) especially in the cart rows • Step 1/2/3 isn't laid out logically, either put step two in between one and three (so they are stacked vertically) or have each step on a separate page (more traditional).

  • [QUOTE=fritzel;37380392] Can easily be changed to another. Would you like to suggest any other background ?[/QUOTE] I don't think it needs one. You already have the main background and then noise for the inner container. Just try making it plan dark grey? I also think you have too much box shadow and too many rounded corners perhaps remove it from the tabs and the main container. If you still want the rounded corners I'd make the radius smaller.

  • [QUOTE=jaybuz;37386976]That would be the arrow at the bottom of the tooltip.[/QUOTE] Is it an image or do you render it all in CSS? I'm curious to see your source. I'm a bit of an "old-timer" when it comes to cool stuff with CSS. I started doing commercial webdev back when you still had to support IE 5.5. I still use pngfix.js on most of the sites I do and quite often will do button sprite sheets instead of rendering 100% CSS buttons. Guess I'm kind of stuck in my ways and still don't trust CSS3 support :P
  • Never did ACTUAL web dev before (static HTML pages don't count) so this took me ages. [url]http://elopakao.com/[/url] What do you think?

  • I have my website scaling up nicely for MDPI devices, but how would I test it for a HDPI device like a retina iPhone for example? [IMG]http://puu.sh/YtFW[/IMG]

  • [QUOTE=kragmars102;37392296]let us know if it's worth the price, your personal opinion that is.[/QUOTE] At the moment I'm still setting up, it'll be a while before I can start getting productive. By the way it's not retina, it's a 15" with high res screen. I excluded the retina because I was afraid the screen would not fit my web design needs (although the IPS panel is pretty good) because of the retina resolution and also because of the price tag was pretty high and the hardware cannot be tweaked after purchase (and paying 500€ more for a 700GB of SSD rather than 500GB was not an option for me).
