Although it may seem otherwise, in FromLinux we never stand still. We always look for a way to innovate to change the routine and that is why I have been working on a new mockup to launch a new design in 2013.
For now they are just ideas and of course, everything may be subject to change. I write precisely this post so that you can share your ideas with me and give me suggestions.
This new proposal aims to use a cleaner design (without so many rounded edges) and change some things like the floating menu bar. Also, as you can see, I have used a header a little bigger to highlight our logo more, although this is under review as I have to see to what extent it could affect the way the site is displayed on small screens (Netbooks and others).
Apart from the visual aspect, this new design will also have corrections under the hood, things that were pending and we did not take into account when we launched the current proposal. Some of these changes are:
- Style for tables.
- Eliminate excess margin in images.
- Corrections in the styles of the text and typography.
Among other fixes that we consider based on the feedback we receive when we announce the current design.
As you can see in the subsequent image, there are elements (number of times read a post, or the text read more) that will only be visible when hovering over some links. In addition, the contact form will be available at the foot of the site so that anyone who wants to communicate with us can quickly have this option.
Also the way the articles will look will undergo some changes. One of the novelties is that, where is the author's information (which is now also specified at the top) at the end of the post, there will be a link where we can access all the articles that he has written.
We will also apply a style for the code, comments and more. The menu bar would be as in the first image, that is, smaller by the vertical. There are many elements to define (colors and others) but it would be more or less this way:
