    Here is the first version of my CMS I'm designing and building. Full Design

    It's in dire need of a re-design and re-build. Working on the article section, trying to keep it simple and let the writer focus on the content.

    I'm happy with it so far, the icons still need work but will do for now.

    What's everyones thoughts?

    ===============================

    Make sure you check the full design

    Full shot isn't showing for me for some reason. The paragraph/alignment 'lines' look different in weights.. hopefully that makes sense. Besides that I dig.

    @John Howard Just fixed it, the uploader was being weird, It's because the 400x300 has been scaled down a bit, check the full thing for quality

    Not sure that the call to action buttons at the bottom need to be so large.

    @Michael B. Thanks mate :)

    @Ilja Miskov I've been thinking about releasing a public version of this (like wordpress) but I'm not sure, right now I use it to power all my clients sites

    @Ilja Miskov Yeah good idea man, I'll have to think about it. I should find a PHP dev to help me on this, could get it done quicker.

    This is really nice! Love the layout, simplicity and feel to it. Overall, the color choice is great. I would suggest making the composition area a tad bit lighter though and your green publish button a bit more green versus lime green. It's very bright at the moment and a tad hard on the eyes. I feel like its bright compared to the red and blue buttons.

    Also, I kind of wish there was some type of opaque composition box surrounding the text that lets me know my boundaries. I think it'd be weird to just click somewhere and start typing. You get what I mean?

    Looks great. I like the large buttons. As a client facing CMS they would be of great utility as compared to smaller ones. Like toe contrasting colour as well. I'd try removing the subtle borders on the buttons to make them entirely flat.

    If you plan on releasing this to the public, I'd assume you'd need to add labels to the right nav, such that a user would know right away what each icon represented.

    @Cat Smith Thanks :)

    I had an idea a while ago of creating a CMS editor that had no surroundings after playing with some content editable stuff and thought it would be perfect when I get to re-designing my CMS.

    Then I saw mediums editor and that sealed it.

    I am going to tone down the green a bit, it's a bit bright.

    @3magine Thanks mate. I have a really hard time just leaving flat buttons as just a solid colour. I dunno why, I've always either just gave in and added a gradient or border. I'll try it with out again and TRY not to touch them lol

    I was thinking about adding some tool tip hovers to the nav any way

    @Colm Tuite You mean the line height of the copy?

  20. Colm Tuite Colm Tuite

    @Mike Busby Yep. It should be 60 char max. I'd say make it 55 char.

    @Colm Tuite Oh I get what you mean. At the moment it's designed to be full width.

    Not sure what i'll do with it yet, I might center it and limit the width. I'll figure that out when I code it.

    @Mike Busby Really awesome! I agree with @Ilja Miskov; although it's a bit of work, it'll be worth it in the end.

    I know a bit of PHP (I'm not sure if it's enough though), if you need it.

    The delete draft button is really prominent, especially being in the usual save / post placement. Have you played with making it less appealing to delete the draft? Not that it's all too important, it just seems more encouraging than maybe it should be.

    keep up the good work!
