Representation of specific things? [Site question!]

Post by 4br4 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 8:59 pm

Okay, so for my site I figured the plain blue links where a bit boring. I figure I'd make the pixel art (Isometric & Non-isometric) in those style for buttons, but what about other things? (Fan art, original? Old Art?)

Do you guys have suggestions? .3.

You know, there is a coding/site subforum: http://www.pixel-glam.com/viewforum.php?f=100 :D

Don't make all kinds of different looking buttons for different sections. Make one type of button, maybe 2 if you use a submenu, but stick to one, and just use that for all the links in your menu.

No, I know the codes, but I do like that forum, thank you for the link.

I meant like, how do I visually represent them? They're on a separate page from the sidebar & look quite bland.

You mean you want to use icons rather than buttons with text?
edit: for inspiration for icons, look here.

And yes, this question is about site design, so yes, it can go in that forum.

Web design is much more than just 'codes' :P
