Feedback on new website
 
We've recently updated our website, to make it more user friendly and informational, rather than just a place for members to blog about the latest news.

Any feedback would be appreciated. Good and bad.

Looks to be fixed now!

So far, looks like a nice site. Clean layout, good use of "negative space".

Don't like the "Learn More" link that moves when I try and click it...

Found a couple other "programatic" things, if you're interested in hearing them.

Brian,

I think the site looks excellent - great job. I was able to find all of your contact info easily, your drop in policy, etc.

One small nit, and one suggestion:

Nit: You have a banner link at the bottom to The WOD Life (I think this is your site as well) The text font colors on the brownish background make it impossible for me to read it.

Suggestion: I clicked through to your Facebook page (500+ likes - great job) - You might want to include the Facebook Plugin that shows the number of likes, a few faces of your fans, and an inline way to "Like" your facebook page without leaving your site. Since you have so many fans, it is great "Social proof" that you guys are legit - And also the visitor may see a face they recognize which is even better validation. Let me know if you aren't sure what I am talking about.

...Tim

Brian I like it, it looks good. Only down side I see is using wordpress or other systems is you can run into sites that look really really similiar.

CrossFit Mount Olympus is using the exact template.

Thanks for the feedback. As for the FB link. My wife, and only one allowed to tinker with the website(her words, I just made her sound polite) said there was not enough room to put that on the site. She is going to try to get it to work, I explained your reasoning, and both agreed it would be a good idea.
