Hm. It's a bit unclear what it's about. Some sort of introduction and more structure would be nice. Now it just seems like random links. There's no context.

 

(Also, fixed backgrounds with scrollable transparent content on top of it are a performance nightmare, even more if you replace them with animations like you do.)

agree. I looked at it for a while trying to figure out what exactly I was looking at, before actually reading the text. You want to have an obvious place for someone to start reading, and also that they can tell what type of thing it is right on first glance.

 

the performance thing I've noticed before, but it worked okay on the computer I'm using right now. It could still be a problem for mobile devices, I'm not sure.

It's meant to be a project list, and I felt it looked cluttered too. Any suggestions on how to present the list of projects and give an intro about the company? I was thinking about having a jumbotron, and then having media objects with paragraphs and titles with a data filter for categories

It's a big difference in performance. Chrome dev tools (behind F12 on Windows) have a great way to test performance in Timeline > Frames. I have a pretty good dualcore laptop and with the website as-is had difficulty reaching 30FPS while scrolling. Disabled the opacity and had no issues hitting 60FPS.

Ok. I'll change the site to your recommendations. Thanks for your help. If you don't mind, could you review the site again once it's changed?

What about some runway lights? Those are perfect for landing pages!

I know landing pages are dumb but people used to go on this site expecting a different thing, so I had to make a project list to show one of the projects that the site used to be dedicated to.

I would also hyphenate "story-driven".

Hmm don't see the background anymore but was it fixed with background: fixed? or with some messy js you see everywhere these days?

And I wonder if transparant with background: rgba(....); and with opacity would make a performance difference :P

 

Edit: opacity is faster.

I don't know how you did the background scolling but it feels somehow sluggish as if there's unnecessary code behind it :/

I'll look into coding of the site I guess ^^

 

Edit: might have found the issue, background-position uses half pixels on every scroll :s

Yes, it's not done yet, should I put a coming soon tag on it?

I updated the page based on what people told me, and I felt like I should just recode it.

Guess i'm not seeing what others were, all i'm seeing is a white page with reams of text, so i can;t really comment.

 

So, the first page is good?

I would definitely put a coming soon. It just makes it seem like your page is broken

The software gives you full control over the content and layout of your web pages.

      No HTML knowledge needed! Drag and drop of the HTML objects: Text, Lines, Images, Marquees & Tables. Site Management. Easily add, edit, clone & structure your web pages from a single file Customizable menus, toolbars, keyboard accelerators, dockable windows, tabs, autohide windows Powerful Form tools with built-in PHP form processor Password protect your pages with the Login Tools/User Management Option to add custom HTML for each object (Before Tag, Inside Tag, After Tag) YouTube, Java, Flash, HTML 5 Audio/Video Quicktime & other Plug-In support Publish your entire we site, a single page or a group of pages (to local drive or a web/ftp server) Easy Photo Gallery creation Image maps Rollover images Navigation bar, Slide menu, Mega Menu & many other navigation tools.

      Planner on the web now lets users add image backgrounds to each plan
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Microsoft today announced that it is rolling out a new feature for Planner on the web that lets users add custom background to plans. The firm says that the feature provides a way for users to “visualize [their] work in a fun and flexible way” and allows for easier differentiation between the boards for those with access to multiple plans.

      The feature, located under Plan settings, provides users with image suggestions based on the name of the plan. The company adds that the capability is powered by the same ‘Designer’ feature available on PowerPoint and automatically surfaces “unique high-quality background images” depending on the plan. For example, a Coffee Store plan will contain suggestions of coffee beans or a coffee scene.

      To access Suggested Backgrounds, users must click on the ellipsis (…) menu at the top and head to ‘Plan settings’. Currently, there appears to be no way for users to upload their own images, and it is not clear if that ability will be added later. Additionally, suggested backgrounds are currently only available for the web version of Planner. The firm has not provided any information on whether the feature will roll out to other clients.

      It will also be interesting to see if the Redmond firm introduces a similar feature for Tasks in Teams, considering that that experience too is similar to that of Planner.
