Default Main Site Layout

Loving the new main site layout. Waaaay better than before, though I think it can be improved even more. Gonna give my opinion on the matter.

I think there's a too much open space near the top, though. I'd say some of the more often used features, like the search, categories, and the latest blog entry, should all be visible at the top of the page. Having to scroll any amount for a feature that is used quite often, is actually a notable turnoff for people if the frequent a site. It it leaves a slightly bad impression on them as time goes on, and they use the site more. Making a blog entry visible from the top is especially important, as being able to see it, and the quality of the blog, will draw in a lot more people, compared to if you can't see it from the top. Also, add more stuff to the bar that has "Home", and "Forum" as the only things on it right now. Doesn't really matter what, as long as it's relevant. Having only 2 options will make some people think you haven't put much effort into the site(regardless of whether or not that's true), or that it's still in the stages where it's setting down its roots.

I'm thinking moving the logo to the top left, moving the highlights closer to the top of the screen, and make it not as wide, so you can move the latest blog, search, categories, and maybe even the recent posts, up within visible range of the top of the page. I have no idea how much work that would be. Just my take on how to improve it.

Also, the facebook link don't work.

Yeah, new theme is most definitely a WIP. The feedback is great though. That's what I need. If you don't mind could you provide screenshots? I need to see how it looks on your screen. I use a 4k monitor so it looks really different for me.

Here you go. I really can't see anything but the highlights and the logo, as it is, at the top of the page.

Right yeah, I see the issue now. I'll look into reducing the gap between the banner and the top of the nav bar.

Sides are empty for my screen. (1920x1080)





Any sort of "auto-scale" thing for different resolutions?
