Mimír gets a new layout
Lately I've been doing some work on Mimír, and this week I silently launched a brand new layout. I replaced the remaining HTML tables with proper div, made a new stylesheet and worked on the logo.
As you can probably tell, the new layout is Plone inspired, with the navigation
bar featuring tabs. Moving the navigation from the left to top leaves
more horizontal space for items. Also, the grouping of the different
pages, personal settings and controls is much clearer now. The logo now
is just the text
Mimír in a nice font suggested by
guy has been promoted to Mimír's mascotte. In
his location in the top banner, he reads his news while more news is
being thrown at him. I think this nicely represents what Mimír does.
Thanks to sneakin for suggesting
Last but not least, I created a nice, unobtrusive background of news papers flying around. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the new layout, although I still have to get a bit used to it, after having used the old layout for almost three years. I still have to update the screenshots in the manual, but the interaction with the site hasn't really changed. As always, keep those suggestions coming.
