Website improvements, rewrite
#1
Hey community,

This thread is mostly for the developers, especially of the PCSX2 Website.

I am a fan of the PCSX2 project and a web developer, mostly Back-End.
Well, I wasn't really satisfied with some layout stuff of the site, it doesn't look good on mobile, and the technical side also isn't that nice. And I had some freetime.. Laugh

Counting one and one together, I wanted to rebuild the site (well, front-end only for now) from scratch, in a cleaner technical way and with some layout improvements and opinionated changes on the way. I'm not a designer, so the design didn't change that much.

Not sure what to further say now.. ^^


GitHub repo: https://github.com/d4rkne55/PCSX2-website
Hosted version: http://privateprojects.w4f.eu/projects/PCSX2/

The live, hosted version should roughly be up to date.

This project is, as visible, not in a final state, still WIP, although I didn't continue for quite some time - stuff is missing, it's not responsive, only developed on a device with 1440x900 resolution (that's therefore also how it looks best currently). Oh, the background isn't intended to stay like that, it was just for me, as I found this saturated blue on the whole page rather hard to look at.


Notable layout changes:
  • the search is in the header, there's space left and it's faster to find
    not sure how the current 'implementation' is from a UX perspective, though.. Is it rather hard to see?

  • Breadcrumbs don't belong on the bottom of a page; that's nonsense IMO.. so it's at the top, below the header now
  • I'm in favor of removing the 'More Articles' section at the bottom above the pagination
  • ..as well as the 'Latest News' box at the bottom (the middle one)
  • I also think about moving the bottom boxes (eg. Links) to the header, if there's enough space



It would be nice if this can get implemented some day, when it's done.

So I would like to hear some thoughts, possible problems and/or ask me questions regarding this. Smile

Greetings,
Dennis

Thanks. Smile Yeah, that could be done when I'm doing some things regarding responsive layout. The image is also way too big as of now, at least on my QHD (2560x1440) monitor..
