Can you make the clicking area much bigger?
The word "Awesomeness" is not clickable for example. And you should name that header "Summer Glau Wiki" not "Summer Glau - The Wiki of Awesomeness"

Yes and the text we see in the screencap should be hidden, the reason for having text in the link is just for SEO.

Did you see Blazius comment on #63?
I'm not the only one who thinks it's much better in terms of navigation through the site.

One last thing; could you make disappear the effect consisting in highliting the selected area when clicked. It's like seing the wire when Superman flies.

You mean the dotted lines that is displayed when clicking on the link, I only saw that when testing the site in IE, I think (hope) that I managed to remove the dotted lines for all browsers. Also the gallery banner links in the same way now.

I suggested to remove the dotted lines but a visual effect when hovering the clicking area would be fine, kinda like an hyperlink is underlined when hovered, in order to indicate it is clickable.
The Summer Glau reddit have a nice effect for example.

Edit : that's not abolutely necessary, considering that the pointer already turn from arrow to hand and the words Summer Glau Wiki appear on a pop-up; it's just visually attractive.

Does that mean no disco (see post #46) ?

Sorry michelangelo, but for me disco looks too distracting. I like the current version more than the others.

Here is a new banner suggestion.



One can test how new banners looks on the site by using a firefox add-on http://getfirebug.com/

If you want to test this banner then open firebug click on the element you want to inspect for the topsection of the site

find the CSS code:

#topsection {
background-attachment: scroll;
background-clip: border-box;
background-color: transparent;
background-image: url("http://summer-glau.com/img/2.png");
background-origin: padding-box;
background-position: left top;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: auto auto;
height: 210px;
}

Replace background-image: url("http://summer-glau.com/img/2.png"); with background-image: url("http://i.imgur.com/jmThE.jpg");

Edit: banner 2 (color adjustment)



Edit: banner 3 (color adjustment)



Edit: banner 4 (text adjustment)



This idea might not work at all

Edit: banner 5 (more color adjustment)



This one looked best so far

The banners are great!
Though it seems you prefer dark tones whereas i prefer brighter ones : this is true for the photo itself anf for the text.

I like the fact that it has multiple Summer characters on it. The Wiki is an universal Summer fansite, not just devoted to a single Summer character or Summer show. So I like it more than the banner only about upcoming Summer shows. I'd suggest that the aim of future banners should be like this as well.

Or maybe sometimes it should feature Summer from a public event or photoshoot, that'd be great too in my opinion since there are many cool and beautiful pictures about Summer from real life too not just about her characters.


Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny!
