I saw a referral on my web site stats from the new site (probably someone testing out the links to movies).

I’m not going to re-post the URL in order to give RevMan time to work on it without lots-o-hits, but it looks just like the re-design that I once saw linked off the Brickfilms home page.

In short, the new site is professional-grade in look & feel and should serve as a great portal into “brickmation” or “Legomation” or “Lego stop-motion animation” or whatever we call this art form.

I agree. The new layout for the site is great lookin. Revmen really put alot of time into it. Its not quite finished though. I think we have a while until the rest of us set foot in there.

The layout is very similar to what Jason and Co. had already created, I’ve only made a couple of adjustments there. The top of the page is still made up by Jay Silver’s graphics, which I wouldn’t dare mess with. They look great. I’ve changed the film directory and I’ve added a film view page, but otherwise the look is mostly not my work.

Most of my work has been in the underlying database structure and the PHP code to get information out of the database and onto the screen in a pretty way. Soon I’ll be attempting to tie the rest of the site into the phpBB2 database, so that you can use your forum account to identify yourself for submitting films to the directory and such.

And this thread is probably now more suited for the redesign forum.

when RevMen finishes the redesigned website,
then he will make it available at http://www.brickfilms.com

Until then, you’re in the dark with the rest of us.

I’m sure Josh doesn’t want alot of traffic to the site, atleast not right now. Then there would be a few people saying “Hey, this button doesn’t work,”…..well no kiddin’….thats cause it ain’t done yet.

Yip I saw it too. It looks and works great. GREAT JOB

I got one important suggestion

Revman The site is too slow, because the images are way to huge.
All the images are 120X91 pixels and many of them exeed 3kb.
Well you know how I’m jerky about file size, but this will make your site user friendly. Of-cource it’s a bunch of work, but what is not?

The reason many of those images are so large is because in reality they’re greater than 120×91. They are a whole plethora of sizes, acutally. The page is forcing them all down to that size, but you still have to download the entire picture. In the future, directors will be asked to provide their own images that are exactly that size. As for the old images, someone will need to take the whole lot and resize them properly. Any volunteers? T?
