Topic: New Show Details Design

Our show details page is messy.

We're used to it, but it's messy and it's because it's been built and added to over the (8!) years, with little regard to usability and / or esthetics - simply put- it ain't pretty and easy to navigate.

In attempt to finally fix this, I'm playing with this page, redesigning it a little and I want your input on this.

So here is the good old details page: http://i.imgur.com/HI29vXP.png

And here is the new one, or at least the version of it so far: http://i.imgur.com/tVYX87Y.png

Obviously nothing is final here, I'm just trying out new stuff and if I like it, and if you guys approve - we'll finish it and make it the default.

Let me know your thoughts on the new layout.

There will be more new stuff, like when you click on that trailer thumbnail or the list for the episodes guide, but it'll all be based on this. Also the watchlist and the right hand calendar will need at least a font size bump smile

Re: New Show Details Design

Looks very good, much nicer
I would move the "If you like" to the bottom, or make it collapsible/removable?

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: New Show Details Design

Are the remove from watchlist/Add to Watch list options/Forum link still going to be on the page?
Other than that I like it, looks nice and clean and tidy smile

Re: New Show Details Design

Looks very good, but please don't remove the imdb, tv link - maybee room for it under show info?

Re: New Show Details Design

I have never noticed till now but is there a reason we run the season numbers right to left?

Re: New Show Details Design

Looks good and better than the old one.

Re: New Show Details Design

I personally think left to right, and would rather have the next episode panel on the right, but I don't use show pages much anyway. Also where are the search links on the new one?

Re: New Show Details Design

My OCD likes left to right, but I don't want the site to be changed if it doesn't bother everyone smile

Re: New Show Details Design

I'd say it looks a nice clean modern layout.  Also appreciate the way you always look for feedback before making changes instead of what most sites do and just ram them down people's throat.

Re: New Show Details Design

Looks ok.

PS. You're watching Pretty Little Liars? XD

Re: New Show Details Design

Yeah, lef to right. Definatelly from left to right, yeah.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Unfortunately my watchlist is full with stuff the wife watches, and I'm downloading for her smile

Everything that seems out of place you can explain with that big_smile

Yep, and it was always like that.

The reason is 95% of the time you need to check the episode list for the currently active season, and it's most convenient if it's the first item on the list.

Reversing the order will mean you'll have to scan the seasons list each time, to go to the end and click that last season.

http://next-episode.net/the-daily-show or http://next-episode.net/the-simpsons for an extreme example of how inconvenient it can get ...

Does that make sense to you guys?

Re: New Show Details Design

Makes sense

Re: New Show Details Design

I would like the custom search engine link somewhere easier accessible, like on the home page, maybe the image could link to the search engine and the name to the show details page? or vice versa

Re: New Show Details Design

Just went to use the google search link, didn't realise they were gone

Re: New Show Details Design

I like it.

Note there seems to be a space missing in the the title on the season's episode guide page.
e.g.
Kitchen NightmaresEpisodes Guide and Summaries

I agree for the season order, although I think the other end isn't hard to find. But Next Episode on the left weirds me out, I'll never get used to that.

More importantly search links are gone now :( :( :(

Re: New Show Details Design

People used search links?

And more importantly, we had search links?

Re: New Show Details Design

One thing I noticed - is there a chance to bring back links to tv rage by clicking on the air date of an episode you're interested in? I liked to use this feature to see what guest stars are in this episode or what music was used.

Re: New Show Details Design

With this new desing I don't have access to the "Sorry, no info about the next episode of ... is available yet." box.
