So, a little while back I posted this question to try and help my website,, out of the 1990s.

How to not make my website have a "1990's" look

So the point of this post is to follow up with that question, and find out:

  • Does my site look more modern, yet retain a homegrown comic'y feel?
  • Any things about the layout you would change?
  • Does the layout seem intuitive?

If yes, I will push it to the live server so maybe you guys can play around with it?

Comics Homepage:

  • Indicators: shows which page, subsite, category you're on... A newly added image will be tagged with a *new
  • Tagging: in addition to overarching categories, tagging allows users to filter based on specific comic content. A comic can have 1 category, and 1 or many tags. Click tag again to remove.
  • Sorting: comics are automatically sorted by date on the left column, and popularity on right column. Popularity is determined by total liked captured per comic.

enter image description here

Artwork Homepage:

  • Search results are limited to 4 so that the sidebar won't slide down too far, but you can click show x more results to display remaining results. enter image description here


  • Voting: a user can like or dislike an image by clicking on those guys. If you vote "like", the guy's shirt will turn green. If you "dislike", it will turn red. To undo your vote, click same vote again, or click opposite vote. If you hover over, it will say "like" or "dislike" if you haven't voted yet. Voting will determine popularity sorting for each image.

  • Commenting: I've integrated DISQUS commenting system. enter image description here


  • All images are sorted by date enter image description here


  • designated admins can log in here and perform admin functions. enter image description here

Do you think I've captured an intuitive, attractive design? Any thoughts?

This isn't a constructive question for this site. You're basically asking us to review your website - that's not a question that will provide any benefit to any other user of the site. You'd need to carry out some actual user testing to get the findings you're after. – JonW Mar 6 '13 at 0:14

Looks decent.

Maybe you could try skinning the combo box and "add image" button. They don't blend with the theme, the current look.

Also search section under view all just seems floating with no content below it unlike other pages. If there isn't anything to go under it maybe move search to the first column and centre all content?

It has moved from 1990's needs bit more for 2013. Aren't ya catering for mobile's at all?

You don't need to go full swing with sniffers and sorts initially but maybe make sure current layout is fluid and adjusts to various resolutions? Right now things get clipped at start overlapping making it not usable from a phone.
