Woohoo! Site move is finally finished!

I've finally completed porting the entire xeromag.com Web site to a content management system on a new server, which is something I've been working on for about five months or so. The new xeromag.com has cleaner design, more consistent navigation, a totally revamped photography section with built-in slide show software, and generally brings the site from 1992 Web development standards to 2007 Web development standards. Woo-hoo!

Part of the goal in moving to a content management system was to make updates easier, so I plan on adding all sorts of new content soon. I am definitely interested in feedback about the new layout and navigation, so take a look!

It's looking good! Easier to navigate than the old site, too.

All in all, I approve! :)

Navigation: woot! much easier find stuff!

layout design: a little on the busy side for my personal taste, but hey, it's not my website. :)

(and I'm a anal-retentive art director who's tastes run to the minimalistic. *chuckle*)

If you want my professional opinion, I'm happy to share.

Like! Your's is always the link I give someone if they ask "Huh? What's Polyamory?" The new layout does make it easier to find. Thanks, as always, for your ongoing work.

None of the images in http://www.xeromag.com/fvpoly.html loads for some reason... :-(

Browser dependent. They're loading okay in Chrome and Firefox, but not in Explorer.

Is that still the case now?

Yes.

Hmm. What version of Explorer are you using? Does it affect all the pages, or only the poly pages?

Okay, that was weird -- now it loads! (You changed something, right?...)

Anyway, now everything works and it looks totally cool! Thanks! :-)

Yep, I changed something that shouldn't have mattered but clearly did. Thanks!

Outstanding. As another person who refers so many people to http://www.xeromag.com/fvpoly that the link is memorized, I am happy to see the fruits of your labor. Definitely easier to navigate, makes a lot more sense, and looks a lot nicer. One request - can you make the width scalable? 800 pixels with ~600 pixels of text looks positively scrawny on 1920x1200. Even just going to 1024px wide would make a nice difference. Regardless, the improvements are awesome. Thank you for being a resource for us!
