    Hey all,

    It's been far too long, but I've finally got my new web page launched. Much more media oriented than the old text-based design. I needed something that reflected that fact that I've branched out recently & I'm not doing just audio anymore. So now I have custom song players, video players, blog entries & a twitter feed. Let me know what you guys think. (bear in mind I can't put too much time into it based on feedback. 24 hours in a day just isn't long enough anymore!)

    Oh yeah, and I hope you guys like my new logo.... It was designed to be simple, instantly recognizable, and most importantly, only two colors so I can print T-shirts for cheap!

    Looks nice and clean!

    You're using Wordpress, don't you?
    If so, what kind of plugin are you usingfor the Twitter Feed? Checked quite a few and
    didn't like most of them, but it looks quite nice on your page.

    Looks nice man. Checking it on my phone, but I'll see it on my desktop after work too. Im sure mobile devices are not what you are aiming at but on my android phone I cant use the mediaplayer at the bottom. Just in case you wanted to know

    he did a nice job there ;)

    would be pretty cool if you could ask him, every Twitter widget I found was either bad,
    looked bad or had serious problems with every Wordpress version up from 3.4, tried like
    10 different ones.

    FWIW, the twitter feed is a widget, not a plugin, so I'm guessing it comes with the theme....

    Check out Twitter Tools:
    http://crowdfavorite.com/wordpress/plugins/twitter-tools/

    I'm using it on http://www.strayfireband.com (right hand column) - the links on the feed are broken, but i don't think that's a fault of the plugin.

    As far as the new website, I'll say what I always say to everyone that posts websites - music player needs to be as fast/easy to access as possible. I prefer having it within view on the very first page a user sees.

    thanks Sloan, gonna try it.

    @Glenn, yeah, I knew that it was a widget, but there are widgets you get through a plugin,
    can't describe it better at the moment, way to tired and sick, need sleep.

    Don't be... there's a reason I've nicknamed it "The Backbreaker."

    Might just being stupid and can't see it, but if there isn't one, a guideline quote form (per day/per hour/gear hire costs etc) on the audio production page could be very beneficial :)

    and +1 to the audio player

    IMO the player has to be as easily accesible as possible, but DON'T make it autoplay, some people like it but those who don't will never open your website again because of it, and I agree with them. Those of us who are really messy with tabs when browsing find it to be the most horrible thing when something starts playing and you can't shut it up cause you don't know where it's coming from.
