All work and no play
No writing today. I've been revamping my website. nandibble pointed out that it wasn't easy to navigate, and she's certainly right. I didn't design the site, it just happened. Bits have been added wherever there was a place for them. I am mediocre at writing html, and tend to do things by copying and pasting and then amending. Therefore, the fics were in something of a jumble. One reason for the colossal hit count that my site clocks up compared to the sites of some of my peers is probably the disorder; it would have been easy for a single visitor to register 50 hits just looking round the site checking to see if there were any updates or new stories.

Anyway, that situation should be greatly improved now. I've adopted the radical new idea of having my index pages list the fics in alphabetical order! I've added a new Updates page, and made it easier to get from my Speaker's Corner homepage to the fic pages.

I'd appreciate it if any of you who were familiar with the old layout would take a look and let me know what you think.

Verrry nice newly revamped site!

Re: One reason for the colossal hit count that my site clocks up compared to the sites of some of my peers is probably the disorder... Bwah! Oh, certainly. That must be it. Hee.

From a fellow HTML amateur, it looks excellent to me. Happily linked from my own site...now I just have to read some more of your stories.

Thanks. I've added a link to your site on mine too, right beside the one to keswindhover; Buffybot fans united!

It occurs to me that my own site could probably stand some tidying as well. Though I did change the theme and images within the... um, okay, year, I don't think the links page has been properly tended in some time. Must find some time to prune the dead links and add new and interesting ones, like yours. Though I wouldn't count on a huge number of referrals, all the same. LOL

Your site does look lovely. I have no idea how to give mine textured backgrounds and every time I put an image up I end up struggling for ages before I can get it into more or less the right place.

I did spot some dead links at the top of Part One of (the lovely) "The Dance Goes On".

Ah, thank you, I will try to tend to those. Didn't realize you'd actually gone there. I use Frontpage for the most part, with some html tweaking for when it just doesn't get it. It's one of those trades: I could code it if I absolutely had to, but I kind of like having a life so I trade off dealing with its limitations to get the speed of drag-and-drop for some things.

The site, it looks dandy
The changes are handy
Your fics, they're like candy
(Some even are randy!)

My impression of Ghandi
Might just come in handy

Looks good to me. :)

Much easier to navigate, and I like how clean it is. Go you!

much better! Easier to find everything, I must say.

Seems okay to me, a lot better than the old version.

Yes; yes, it is better!

Unlike your ankle, alas!

Thanks, and best wishes.

The site was something of a labyrinth, although luckily without a minotaur.

Like the reorginization; much simplified. Though I'm still hoping for more Pandora's boxer!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 5th, 2005 05:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, glad you like it. Don't worry, you will definitely get more Pandora's Boxer; I am looking forward eagerly to writing Sandy's Revenge and the catastrophic effects of Toth's rod. Just not yet.

Yes, it's much easier to navigate. Good job.
