Some sites I have done recently (as a consultant)

www.house.gov/bean

So yeah, Walter, if you ever need a hand, let me know.

Why not take the D front page and do a mockup?

OK, I spent a bit of time on this, but there is more that could be done. I showed the site as having an actual "home" page, which would be a slight change from how it is now. Also I intend on keeping the frames for the language documentation and comparison pages, but other stuff would be on normal site pages. (or so the concept goes).. You could keep it all in frames, but I really think frames have their place, and a download page isn't one of them. There is so much I could do to help lay the site's actual content out in an easier to use, more accessible, and more aesthetic manner. You can start to see what I mean by this image I hope. Anyhoo, I would love to work with the PHP that is already in existence for this effort. Hope you guys like it, and if you don't let me know what you dislike in as detailed manner as possible. -- Thanks, Trevor Parscal www.trevorparscal.com trevorparscal hotmail.com

I think you've done a great job with this. I agree with abandoning the use of frames, but I'd still like to see the Table of Contents on the left for each page, including the 'home' page. What is the PHP already in existence? The D web site doesn't use PHP.

for this effort.

Here you go, I have made it semi-understandable now, up from incomprehensible :) http://nod.yi.org/d/d.tar.bz2 The script fetch5.pl is what I used to pull the pages a while back, It should still work, if Walter has not changed too much in the toc.

I like it very much, only a minor thing: The language reference is a very large part of the site, so I think it should have a bit more prominent place on the frontpage. Oh, and do you think it is possible to use some of the graphics / css from my design for the reference? I'm kinda proud of some of the boxes...

Dude that is awesome! I love it!
Where/How did you learn this stuff?

as for crits:
1- This one is not about your design, but rather about the content (text).
    The site looks professional now, it kinda feels weird when the text 
says "I did .. I was told .. I .. I .." etc. You know what I mean? It's 
also not very cear who "I" refers to.

2- As Nod pointed out, the main purpos of the site was the language 
reference. ".. so I think it should have a bit more prominent place on 
the frontpage."
     I'm thinking the table of content for the language should always be 
there, or atleast the "Home" section should be the "Language Reference" 
section .. or something like that.
     But then again, who am I telling you how to design the site, I suck 
at this stuff.

Anyway, you've done a good job.

Agreed. I guess we should let walter reword it. I don't feel like I am in the place, personally, to put words in walter's mouth, so I just left the text as is for the example.
 *snip* I think it should have a bit more prominent place on 
 the frontpage."

Agreed, I diddn't really think about that when I first made it, but than again, while the language refrence is the most important part of the site, other things in the site are a little too burried in my opinion. For instance, downloading the compiler, news about what's up with the latest version, and links to D related sites. These are all important for people who are a little newer. Eventually I would love to build Walter a language refrence system that is better than MSDN, but I will take one step at a time.
 Anyway, you've done a good job.

Thanks, guys, it was just a quick scetch made at rest time. I am not a professional designer but I do have art education. And this cannot be considered as something finished. Just visual thoughts. I think that Trevor will do this way better and more professionally than me. (I am using tenth rule of management here :-) For programmers who are looking for color combinations for their sites I would recommend this link: http://www.colormatch.dk/ Tool is not perfect but allows to select harmonised (of course!) colors - thus to avoid "christmas tree style".

I think your design is nice, but now I noticed what I think is a problem with the original design: All the first links down the left are language reference stuff. This should be collected into one section of the site. Thus examples, comparisons, community (very important!) and other sections could get more attention/profilation. In my browser, none of these other sections are on the visible top part of the page. If I didn't scroll, I would never know that there is more to the page than the language reference.

I agree, but we might need to do one thing at a time. ;) I think he's trying to concentrate on solving the problem of the current webpage's understated style (which I think Nod's design does nicely). If someone can find some nice CSS that Walter will apply to the docs, that'd be a great improvement.

I've thought the same thing. Maybe if one of us does a mock-up showing how we can add in a lead-in page to the frames or redesign it so that the frames are removed, we might be able to get such a change implemented. (I've been looking into doing something like this myself, but I haven't put too much time into it yet, and I haven't be satisfied with my results yet.) jcc7

Right, I looked at it in IE and the "Test of Boxes" didn't look quite the same. Also the "DMD D Compiler" page, didn't work right in IE either (the graphics started overlapping some of the test). But I'm sure some .css can be developed that works well enough in all of the major browsers. jcc7

Thanks to both of you! And it is correct that I am trying to focus style rather than content. The current pages actually have very clean html, so other than swapping the headers and footers using php, all that is really added is a css file and some graphics. The original content is almost totally unchanged. I must give Walter praise for this; I rarely see so nice html, even if it is not entirely validated - I don't care :) -Nod-

Also the "DMD D Compiler" page, didn't work right in IE either (the graphics started overlapping some of the test). But I'm sure some .css can be developed that works well enough in all of the major browsers. jcc7

Yes, IE can be fixed, but it is nontrivial, so I won't spend time on it until I know the design will actually be used. Speaking of which, although it is not complete, some comments or suggestions from Walter would be nice :) -Nod-

It's too bad Microsoft won't get with the program with web standards.

Yes, I'd wait for some interest from Walter, too. jcc7

 So anyhoo, I have offered before, but here it is again.

 Maybe D's site could use a little bit of graphical help. I would love to 
 help out (for free of course), if Walter wants some help, otherwise, 
 it's all good, just an offer. And if my crap sucks, than there would be 
 no obligation to use it.

 Some sites I have done recently (as a consultant)

 www.house.gov/bean
 www.house.gov/costa
 www.techpaths.com

 and some for free (not professionally)

Nice, only nitpick: where are the image-alt tags? Thomas -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iD8DBQFCpSpM3w+/yD4P9tIRApYXAJ0dUeQQaLqN6VIam7DQbkw5pHgmjgCgmmnL pg3DTZ1jkreRsJkHAAkWxv8= =IsXj -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
