So after getting a little pertinent and constructive feedback from one user, and having a good secondary look at the first beta layout, I've tweaked PeterboroughToday.co.uk's Posh landing page layout.
- Tightened up the Posh content header vertically and shrunk heading graphic as it's already under a template header and navigation structure.
- Simplified the navigation options, took out extraneous copy on the header to encourage users to dive straight into page content.
- Re-organised the content layout on the landing page to give a quick snapshot of latest Posh events whilst keeping as much 'above the fold' as possible, but without overloading the eye - a tough balancing act with only 815pixels in width.
- Shortened visible league table so as to draw user into full table which has sortable columns via jquery, plus an extra page view!
- Added club information box, an obvious initial oversight.
- Highlighted RSS feed/email alerts using Feedburner.
- Hoping to bring in CoverItLive element in the future.
