Web Analystics + Design

| 0 comments | html5 css

Oh yes, it is that time of year again for a quick up haul of the CSS again! Updates include:

  1. Horizantal Navigation
  2. More Images
  3. Bigger Images
  4. Full use of width, whatever screen resolution
  5. Page Tools
  6. Better Browser Support (mainly IE)

What are you opinions?

The big job over the refurbishment was stepping back from HTML 5 tags section and article - the reason behind this was rendering in Internet Explorer.

I use Google Analytics on my site and recently read a post on forrst about browser versions and got interested in what my statistics say on visitors' browsers.

As the stats show, around 9% of my visitors are having a go with IE but up to now, would have seen a mess. So I would like to apologise and welcome you to this design. The word on the street is that Microsoft will be taking up some html 5 tags in the next version of it's famous browser. I am looking forward to seeing that.

Visitors to DylanJones.info will have noticed colour! A long awaited feature to the site. Specifically #3399CC and yellow. As I only allow visits from compatible browsers (ie not IE), I have also added rounded borders to the two main sections of the page. This has been implemented by adding:

-moz-border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px;

A nav element has also been added into the top header, currently linking to the 3 main places on the site. I am debating whether to add a more specific A-Z or Sitemap for machines to read alongside humans.

An A-Z may be best suited to go down in the global footer of the site now, along with a search bar of some kind.

The new BBC Homepage has been released today aswell.

With my tastes changing frequently, I change the look and layout of my site quite often. I am going to look into a way of archiving the image of the homepage so I have a record of all the different variants.
