Hi All,

Can you please let me know if you like the background behind the right sidebar, or if you prefer the sidebar (on the left) without a background...

Also, on the excerpt pages, what is your opinion on how the text expands to fill the screen below the sidebars? Does it look too funny?

Thanks for you time and comments.

Jen

I don't like the sidebar

I don't like the sidebar with the background because the image makes the text harder to read. That's not to say that the sidebars wouldn't look better without a bg, just one that's less intrusive. It would also look better if the sidebars were moved in from the edges of the container so the bg of the sidebars and the container aren't flush.

FillScreen

Hello Jen,

Personally I think the text would be better if it didn't fill the screen once the sidebars had finished.

I think if they stayed in a column the same size all the way down the page, it would be easier to read.

But that might just be me Smile
