Looking a little festive eh? Zactalk 02:03, 5 December 2006 (CET)

Eh? Together with amylin I'm trying to create a nicer layout. But maybe I should revert it? amylin likes the green, but I think it's hard to discern the links. But maybe I'm color blind ;) Guaka 08:38, 5 December 2006 (CET)
I think it looks very nice, but I do see what you mean about the links. They don't really jump out at you. Zactalk 17:20, 5 December 2006 (CET)
Schetching 11.5.2009 by Mikael
Here is some schetching i made... Do we need all those links at the top of the page (languages) and "Signs" and such in left navi? It makes this a bit messy, lots of stuff at one view. If we need language -links at the top, they could also work in drop-selection. -Mikael 20:11, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I really like it. Looks much more professional than mine and guakas layouts :) The language-links are not really double. The ones at the top lead you to the main page, the ones in the sidebar to the translation of the current article. I'd say we can remove the one from the top. It looked a bit better, when we only had only 2 languages ;) --MrTweek 20:43, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, really looks good, but I prefer to let the language links in the top stay there, as it's easy to switch to different language wiki's when surfing hitchwiki. some time ago i already made an attemp to reduce the amount of links in the left box, maybe we can find a better solution for it. --Platschi 08:20, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I think the same. I miss the links to the other language wikis as I use them quite often. I don't feel they take up too much space, but my screens are rather big. Want back! --Kb 23:56, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, we can have them back, but not the way we had them before. With a screen resolution of 1024x768 (like all these netbooks), they were colliding with the links on the top left. Any ideas, how we can handle that? --MrTweek 08:24, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, i didn't think language-bar thingy far enough. They gain their place at the top of the page, but more compact select-tag would still do the trick better. I just checked my schetch and need to say: it's looking too "clean" and therefore boring. Hitchwiki needs some kick-ass-graphics, but maybe cool logo will do that? -Mikael 18:41, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Maybe if we get HW good lookin' and ass-kicking, i can take down my original finnish hitchwiki layout and start being more uniform. :-D (check fi) -Mikael 18:44, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Hereby, I promote you be the official hitchwiki designer. :) --22:17, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Yo! I don't like "official", but apart from that, all cool! Mikael, feel very free to upload more and to edit the CSS, and if you have questions or specific things you want to do I'm also happy to help of course. ...
I just went ahead and made an effort towards what you're suggesting. It needs some work, especially annoying is that #p-personal is somehow blocking the links. I'm also sure it fucked up the layout in other languages, as they're not using this Monobook.css stylesheet... guaka 00:36, 17 May 2009 (UTC)


Meinhard about the layout:

  • like the round corners
  • don't like the airbrush art in the logo
  • don't understand the jigsaw at the top
  • never really liked the mediawiki thin lines around the content boxes
  • bullet squares on the left look boring
I turned the squared into discs. And I might fix the jigsaw now. I think the thin lines around the Main Page. guaka 11:03, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Redesign August 2009

I like the new yellow/red look. However, I'm not sure if the blue links fit into that. Maybe also make them dark red, like in the sidebar? Main page probably needs some adjustment as well. --MrTweek 19:30, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

I just tried some quick improvements. Avivalaloca, next to me right now, is looking for a different approach, something with a road in the background. Anyway, I'm getting better at MediaWiki CSS. We could also change the color scheme somewhat :) guaka 20:46, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
