    Default Re-launched DobberHockey Look

    I have a lot of good feedback and have a lot of my own notes. My programmer is designing the new home page to have featured articles, widgets unique to the Dobber Sports Network, proper ad spots, and we're going to tweak the logo too.

    Will need a week or two.

    Good news is the garbage is cleaned up and the site is modernized so changes and fixes are easy. More good news is that whatever we do with DH through trial and error, we can then easily do over at DobberProspects.

    Experienced a shaky start the first morning. Didn’t realize the site layout was being changed.
    As of today I think it runs very smooth. Love the look and navigation.
    Great job. Kudos to all involved.

    Screenshots please. That'll help narrow down which part(s) are too small.

    Congrats on the re-launch but I'm not seeing it. This is what I've been getting at DobberHockey for the past week or so:

    Using the same picture of Kase for both the top 2 articles makes them look like a bit like duplicates.

    When I click on 'Dobber's Ramblings' from the forum page it takes me to the ramblings from May 8, 2018, everytime. Otherwise it's looking good.

    I see the new header today. Not a fan of the black at the top with almost nothing in it, but there are a few things definitely wrong that aren't just colors.

    1. The "ice with a puck section" has the words "Dobber Hockey" twice, but on the left, they blend in with the puck, and are partly unreadable depending on the width of the window on my screen. Need to get the puck moved, or the words moved, or both. I can shrink the window down far enough that the puck goes away and off to the left, so perhaps the puck on the right would work. The words do resize, unlike the menu.

    2. The menu disappears at less than a 17" window width, and is replaced by the mobile drop down look. In my opinion, this would be better if it went away at a much narrower width. Ideally, resize the words on the menu so they shrink a bit before going away. I like the way teh forum header behaves much better.

    3. I think the Rankings should have more than just the Band-Aid Boys listed.

    I rarely use the main site link anymore, but thought I'd give some feedback on what I see on an actual monitor, since it seems like everything is being designed for mobile.

    This is still a thing. May 8, 2018, every time.
    Great picture of Brind'Amour on that ramblings but I'd much rather quick link to the most recent ramblings (like it used to). My browser is pre loaded to the forum page, generally I check that out then like to link to the ramblings. I'll be honest I haven't been reading the ramblings consistently since that changed back in January/February.
