Question

I am not sure if the new frames interface is going to work out.

I did make an interface a while ago for a local Sportbike Group and I might use it here on SBW. It does not use frames.

You can view it at https://www.sportbikeworld.com/team-velocity

What does everyone think? Please voice your opinion....

Hey Robert,

Being a web programmer, I must give input.

At 800X600 it is ok.(a little boring though, black and white I mean )

At 640X480 it is a little large... I usually base everything on 640X480, because the average user uses this ....

All in all I like the frames idea, But I think the site could be more eye catching

Acually on the 4 sites I run only about 6% of the people use 640X480 with most (78%) using 800X600.

But I do try my best to make it usuable in 640X480.

Thanks for your input! Anyone else?

I agree that more eye candy would be nice(colours).I realize that you might want to keep it simple but battleship grey just doesn`t cut it.This is a great start,Robert.

I think it's set up fine. Although the black and white is, well black and white but, it doesn't bother me because I'm not here to be entertained by colorful graphics, I'm here because I share a common interest with everyone else in this forum.
BTW the only problem that I have noticed is I have to click the link to be forwarded back after posting a message. It won't atomatically send me back to the topic.

Why is everyone so against frames?...personally I think it makes navigating the whole site easier, and people will be less likely to lose sight of the fact that there is more here than the forums. (hopefully there will be more than what we have now..there will...)

I'm all for the frames..and as far as the color goes I agree with all...I'm here for the information, not the colors, but a little color is nice too

After posting the redirect link might take a few as it has two banners on it. Try giving it a few more seconds to see if it forwards you.
