Site Tweaks

13 comments

Thanks to everyone who has commented so far on the design. Some changes (and clarifications) are below:

Colour Scheme

As a couple of commentors have pointed out, black on white is the easiest combination for most people when it comes to reading large amounts of text. As LR is really about the content, not the visuals, we opted for a simple, clean design that matched this – a design fit for purpose (Frank Pick would be proud).

That said, many people prefer light-on-dark (as was the case with the old site). So, if that’s more your thing, you’ll now find a new menu item at the top of the page – “Invert.” If you’d prefer your LR light on dark I suggest you give it a click and let me know what you think.

Print Stylesheets

You should find that the article pages now have accompanying, nicely legible, print stylesheets.

Timestamp on Comments

Comments within articles now show the time they were posted, as well as the date

Captioning on Images

Where possible, we’ll now put captions on images for you. These will also show up when you magnify the image. You can see this in action on Mwmbwl’s Silwood article.

Bits and Bobs

The RSS feed show now correctly title itself (i.e. not as Erfworld). Not quite sure how that crept in, but if you haven’t read it already and like your webcomics (particularly if you have any fond memories of playing D&D), I do heartily recommend checking it out!
