Website advice

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by brainfodder, Jan 25, 2006.


  1. We are finally starting to gig, and I am responsible for my band's webpage. I was hoping I could get some advice on style/usability for the site.
    If you get a chance, check out The Resistors and let me know what you think. It's my first attempt, so I am eager for feedback.
    My goal is function over flash.

  2. Far too much function, not enough flash. :D

    It's boring and plain, go look at some other bands sites for inspiration. The logo looks kinda weak and the menu just looks cheap.

    But, as a first draft, it isn't too bad.

    Nice first take!

    1) Combine the show dates with the home page. And put a band pic on that index page.

    2) The show dates maybe easier to read in a table format, but DO NOT use default HTML table settings...they look like crap. If in doubt, leave it the way it is.

    3) Put a representative thumbnail pic in front of each photo album link.

    I like it! Zeronyne and some of the other members had some great suggestions. My 2 cents: add more colors and have more than one font.

    Nice work! I really liked the site.
     
  5. If you're using HTML there is a basic site called Funky-Chickens.com that has some good tips.

    Search for "Free Website Templates" or something close to that and you can find some cool stuff.
