New Homepage for Knight Rider Online!

Check it out and let us know what you think!

Big thanks to Sue for the photo, and for Mike and Matthew for being a critque sounding board (if you don't like it - you can blame them). Plus the others mentioned in the footer for their contributions.

It's not 100% perfect but leaps above what we had. Bye bye Davilex image!

That looks good but what do you think of the idea of having both cars facing opposite directions and a row of links going down between the 2 cars?Possibly with working scanners.

I love the fact that they changed the frontpage! That Davilex car had to go and of course be replaced with something new and better.

I guess it's not 100 % perfected yet and i wish they could make some changes to it. Other than that, well done!
Michael: Kitt what matters to me is who you are not what you look like. Sure we don't have the car so we can't turbo boost so we can't go over 200 miles an hour but it was all icing on the cake anyway

AWESOME!!! Love it! :)

Only in Firefox 3 on my widescreen display, the "Go" button after the search box is actually on the 2nd line under "original series" and partly cut off. Did anyone else notice this or is it my browser? Coding for compatibility between two browsers is very difficult, I know.

This is really looking nice! :) Will you be doing a similar version for the forum heading?

Wow! That sure looks purdy! I can’t believe that’s my photo! Neil has done some of his magic to it.
I had returned to El Mirage Dry Lake for work and snapped it in a hurry. I almost forgot all about it.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the locations thread here’s exactly what you’re looking at.

Excellent job on the home page. Glad to see the Davilex car gone for good! The two K.I.T.T.s look awesome side-by-side like that. The renders are so good that they really look like they're at the location. The background color also seems to come off as black and white at first which reminds me of the technique they used in the beginning of Knight Rider 2000.

DJGM - Thanks. I have a widescreen laptop but some of my real estate is the docked sidebar and object desktop pull-out menu, so I guess that made the difference. Glad it was only me. :)

Did you ask permission to use the new artwork?

If you did`nt, I`d advise not to post your handywork here!
