Hey iLloyd! I love what you did with the site! :] We have a member of our team who is working on redesigning a website and he would love a few tips when designing the site! :yikes: Love what you did with your team’s site!
Only a small scrolling issue-- when you scroll down, that sidebar goes over text and generally causes a bit of visual confusion. I love the expand effect, but it doesn’t look nice when there are logos on top of words.
On http://www.grandviewfirst.com/media.html you should create small thumbnails for each image. Using the full file in the thumbnail causes the visitor to download the entire file. Even on broadband, it still took me almost a full minute to fully load that page. If your web server supports PHP, I highly recommend that you use this. If you need help, let me know.
I’m also getting the scrolling issue. Screen size is 2048x1152, using Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57 on Windows 8. Here’s a screenshot: http://puu.sh/22ffl
I am so glad you told me about TimThumb. Definitely going in my “toolbox” as well. Still having a few bugs but hopefully going to get those ironed out. Also, am I the only one who loves to look at Google Analytics and just be amazed at all the stats I have in front of me?
No, you’re not. It’s even more awesome once they introduced entrance/exit pages and the “story” mode. It’s interesting to see in what order people browse your site. It helps to also figure out which browsers/technology you should focus on, once you have enough data.
