Somebody/Anybody do me a favor? Please?
« on: January 12, 2016, 04:25:55 AM »

In case you don't know, I'm currently in the process of making a blog that organizes every single song, riddle, and rhyme in the Redwall series. I've just finished going through Salamandastron , which puts me at 5 down 16 to go.
I want to make sure the site is as functional and easy to use as possible, so if someone/anyone could pick any song from the first 5 books, go to the blog, and try to find , then tell me your thoughts/ feedback/ any issues you might've had, that would be so wonderful. I would like to get any bugs in my system out as soon as possible, before I get too far.

The first 5 books I am referring to are: Redwall, Mossflower, Mattimeo, Mariel of Redwall, and Salamandastron
My blog is: http://redwall-lyrics.tumblr.com/

wow I sound so much like a tumblr spam blog; at least my grammar and spelling is mostly on point though B)
And maybe someday I will get the hang of the appropriate board to post my topics... I feel like I've made a bad choice yet again, I'm sorry...

It looks great! Only thing that I might recommend is a little bit smaller text, not much, but it does seem to almost smother the rest of the page. (It's probably different on different displays.) :)

Thank you Del! :) I will take that into consideration!

What a pretty blog! I like the idea of it, too :)

I think it's great. I like the organization. Can't think of any constructive criticism, especially since blogging isn't my specialty, anyway ;D

Nah, this is the right board! And don't worry about it. Members are always helping each other out in this forum :)

A little modification with mine, only the actual lyrics are a little big, everything else is perfect!

@Del  I took a look at it and I'd have to agree about the lyrics' size. I'm a little nervous about editing the theme html to change the post font size, considering it isn't really my thing. If I mess up, who knows how much I could lose. But I'll give it a try.

@sky thank you very much! :D

Do you mind if I ask a mod to move this to the General Discussion board since it's related to the series?

Nope not at all

@del I poked around a bit in the html and changed some font sizes, why don't you pop over and see what you think?
