PostSubject: Sonic online new site template in creation   Wed Sep 19, 2012 1:10 pm

Wasn't sure where to post this, first wanted to reply in the sonic online affiliate topic, but replies aren't allowed there, so I though "anything related to sonic" would fit the best.

I'm creating a new website, this will be my first time to be using PHP & JavaScript in a sonic online site, my current site is just HTML and a very little CSS.


Link to the new website demo:
http://demo.sonic2online.com/

Please note no buttons at the demo work properly yet, these pages are still in creation. And it will be updated to the demo website untill it's ready to be uploaded to the main website sonic2online.com
The full site will recieve a quite simple layout, a menu on the left, and content at the right. These will replace everything on the demo which I call the quick-menu. Except for the header & the background.

The purpose of the quick-menu is for people who come at the site, and just want to know how to get & play the game. They can immediately click 'download' and the download should start without trouble or more pages.
They will probably come back for the install guide when they recieve issues. Or when they're smart, they'll also click the install/error guide immediately.

The full website is meant for more information about the game, screenshots, guide, videos, lastest news, skin-modifications, etc. But isn't required if you just want to play the game.

The site has 2 templates. But I still have to add a place where you can change the template you want to use. For now you can switch them manually through the following links:
Note: The used template will be saved into your cookies! The cookie expires in 30 days.
Note2: It takes at least 1 second for your browser to switch templates.

Sonic adventure 2 template:
http://demo.sonic2online.com/index.php?template=sa2

Sonic & All stars racing transformed template:
http://demo.sonic2online.com/index.php?template=asrt

I'd love to know what people think about the website. (What template do you prefer? Why? How are the colors? Do you like the font used in the buttons/header?)

Someone on the Sonic Online forums suggested to change the background of the Sonic adventure 2 template to blocks similar to these:
http://rvlution.net/nsmbw/screenshots/968_gHIIs1hs/Pa1_sonics.png
However, the template isn't meant to look like a sonic stage, still I'd like to recieve some more opinions about his suggestion before taking a final decicion.

Plenty of updates are made already since the first post

Almost buttons work properly now . Only "download" & "Install/Error" Guide aren't linked to anything yet.
However, some pages don't work properly yet. (Forms like contact, affiliate & donate will error when submitting, some pages errors from the beginning )
Don't worry though, on localhost these pages are working perfectly fine, it's just that I haven't configured it for www.sonic2online.com yet.
The pages saying "Coming soon" haven't been touched yet.

Also, a template-picker has been added. 3 templates available! Smile

Worked hard on it today, new site is now available on http://www.sonic2online.com

If you see anything odd in the website please say so, and note your browser.
Also suggestions are welcome.
