Dearest Readers of PoT

Let us know what you think of our site redesign. I'm still tweaking things but would really like to know your thoughts. I think it's easier to read and much less strain on el ojos.

P.S. If anyone knows how to use the new 'Page' widget in Blogger, let me know. It's so not intuitive.

Gracias!

Snazzy! Nice clean look...

I like the new design -- it's definitely more pleasant for reading, and it still looks good. I think it would be nice to "dim" the white background though.

Geof said...

Like the new design, Cortez. I didn't really dislike the last one, but this is cool.

Funny you mention the page widget because I was just trying to work on it now.

Ha ha, it's so funny how changing the side bar from one side to another can throw my equilibrium off! I dig the new look and it is easier to read. I love the new blogger set up, it's way easy to use, but I really wish you could upload your own photos.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

@Flaun, when you say 'dim' do you mean the white text? Checking out the site on my iPhone, I noticed a weird white bar to the right that overlapped the margin. Maybe its a browser thing?

Anyone have an idea or see something funky?

@Geof, let me know if you figure it out.

@Matt, there is a widget that you can use to upload your own photos.

I think it looks really good. I was doing the same thing today with my Crohn's Disease blog today and have been having problems with the blogger widget stuff as well.

I dig it! Not that I had a problem with the last one, but this looks great.

Its easier on the eyes, I think you are right. Looks great!

You guys rock the casbah. Thanks for all the feedback!

Looks sweet, but NEVER change that header, guys - it's the best one in the horror blogosphere (emphasis on the sphere!) Clean, crisp, iconic, and while giving a shout out to a memorable horror image, it's original. Very classy, and it's long been my fave.

PS - I have an archaic browser at work, and I was also getting a white bar on the left for my site, but only occasionally. But since I'm borderline PC illiterate, what the hell do I know?

Planet of Terror said...

Wow, thanks Senski! I had an idea for using the sphere from Phantasm and my buddy designed our kickass logo. Glad you dig it so much, and don't worry, we love it just as much!

I've checked out the blog on other browsers and haven't seen the white bar again. Hopefully it doesn't show on too many.

Looks good to me!

Planet of Terror said...

Thanks Pax!

I figured out the page widget. Hit me up if you have problems using it.

Peace,

Cortez

It looks good.

Question-if you post youtube videos/trailers, does the width constrict the image-cutting a prtion of it off-and if so-how do you get around it?

Planet of Terror said...

Mike, it can depending on what size you choose. So if you search for a particular trailer, you'll see a blueish looking star next to the 'Embed' feature. You can select various sizes, some of which may run over to the side margins of your blog, some of which may not (I always select 320X265). But even if you select the smallest, when you copy and paste the HTML code into your blogger template, you can still manipulate the size of the width and height that are in quotations " ".

Just mess around with the dimensions until you find something that fits.

I had to move to blogspot due to blogger's insistence of abandoning FTP. I'd have to totally redesign my site if i chose a new template.

But the new pages option is pretty cool...now if i knew anything about web design i could take advantage.

Agreed like the new design a bunch man and I have always wanted sweet buttons at the top!
