Hey everyone!

I just finished converting my website to WordPress. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I made the WordPress template myself.

Now if only there was an easy way to integrate the WordPress database and the SMF forum database so people didn't have to register twice...

Thank you! I worked really hard on it, and I know everyone has different tastes so that means a lot to me.

Looks really good, I had a similar design for one of my sites on blogger.

Personally I would remove the transparency on your logo, its a little busy with the background bleeding through.

Thanks for the input, MNM.

Do you mean the words "TheSpaceRace.com", or the transparency of the menubar? Or both?

The title doesn't actually have any transparency, but I did give it a gradient and pattern to give it a metallic appearance. I agree it does kind of camouflage it with the clouds and makes it difficult to read. I'll work on that... maybe by darkening the lighter part of the gradient so that it doesn't so closely match the clouds.

If you meant the transparency of the menubar, I like that and won't remove it completely, but I have reduced it by 10%.

No, I love the bar

But your logo needs to stand out more, its the thing you want people to remember and right now it's a bit hard to read.
Mind you, my eyes are not as sharp as they used to be.

You're definitely right that it isn't as readable as it should be. I'll have to work on it a bit, I've tried a few things but nothing seems to help a whole lot.

Personally I would flip the image of the earth to come in from the right side of the page and then I would put your name on the left in the black portion.

Everyone always has the graphics started on the left or center, when the right is sometimes quite unique.

Look at the link in my signature, on my site I made the sunflower graphic to come in from the right instead of the left. I think it ads a nice touch.

Yeah, I tried that when I was first putting the design together... I don't know, it looked backwards to me having the Earth on the right of the Moon. I also tried to put the Earth in the center but I couldn't figure out how to fit the Moon in there without making the height of the header much larger.

By the way, I like your site. And I just noticed you're in Kitchener... I'm in Hamilton and my brother lives in Cambridge.  Smiling

lol Yeah, it's nice to speak Canadian freely once in a while, eh? Since my website is "aboot" an American subject I tend to spell words the American way. And HTML requires it too... it doesn't like when I spell colour the "wrong" way.

HeHeHe

Have you ever tried to use the "CENTRE" or "COLOUR" command in html?  Confused

I've had to go in and correct them on more than a few occasions.

I really like the website. It has a nice header, nice navigation, and the template colors fit the theme of space. Well done!
