  • New site in final stages of development

    Mods please remove if deemed in appropriate.

    Okay guys this new site that is just about finished will give you a good idea of what the next generation of mcnews.com.au is going to look like. This site will be a specialist ATV portal. Have a look around and let me know what you think.

    looks good trev.


    the only point i'd make is that it seems to be fixed-size, and while it looks fine in 1280x1024 that i run, i know a lot of people still browsing in 800x600, 1024x768, etc.

    mcnews.com.au currently caters to different screen sizes - the new site doesn't, by the looks?
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

      It can be seen as a little busy on small screens for sure. We made the decision to go more wide screen as pretty much all decent computers these days have widescreen displays, both notebook and desktop. We are looking to future proof it for a while so the decision was made to go 1280 x 1024, our stats also show that this is a very common screen size for readers of the general mcnews site. Certainly the bigger the screen the better the site looks and it will be somewhat painful on smaller and older screens but like everything I guess, you just have to tread a line somewhere around the middle and know that you can't please everyone. The way it is laid out with the offers on the right should mean that people on 1024x768 don't have to scroll horizontally at all to read any articles or use the site effectively. It's all compromises I guess, not like print where you just lay out a page and know that everyone gets the page exactly how you laid it out. Thanks a lot for your feedback.
