Re: New webpage look

i think josh is right about the color. Instead of red, some shade of
blue or
green might give a better look.

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki

instead of putting “Start page”, “Index by Title”, “Index by Date”
buttons
on right-side,
they may be placed on the top of start page (maybe beside “History”).
This may be useful for people new to gnuradio website (initially for 2
weeks, i thought that “start page” is the only wiki)

Ok, so to protect people from bleeding from any part of their body while
viewing the webpage, I have toned the red down a notch. But seriously,
if
the webpage is causing you physical pain to look at, perhaps the
brightness
of your monitor is turned up a bit too high.

So the Forces of Brightness won out for me when redoing the color scheme
specifically to get away from the drab blue and greens of the Earthtone
Coalition. I think the new colors make the site more alive and pop as
opposed to what I think was a pretty dull, boring site of blues.

The redish-orange color was taken from the GNU Radio icon that we’ve
added
to the top of the page. Originally, I think we had the wrong value for
it,
which gave that brighter red (#C82F1F), but I replaced the main banner
with
what GIMP tells me is the real color from the icon, which is #C80000. It
calms it down a bit, and I just replaced the link colors with this
scheme
instead of the brighter scheme.

Using the redish-orange for the banner and blue for the links would
clash, I
think. I mean, come on, orange and blue? What is this, UVA? (inside
joke/rivalry; I went to VA Tech.)

I’m definitely willing to entertain other suggestions for colors if most
people are finding this to be a real problem, but I’d really rather not
go
back to boring old blue like we used to have.

Something I’ve learned in over 30 years of doing computer stuff,
including UI design. When it comes to UI decisions, including colours,
layout, etc, you’ll never, ever make everyone happy. It’s not
possible. The reason they call “personal taste” personal, is that,
well,
it’s personal :slight_smile:
