Thanks, Karl.

I have already tried this option, but then the layout of the map is no longer correct. But I have not had time to research why that happens.
Custom Logo is a good idea. I think I have to contact a graphic artist ;)

I've had my site for a while but now I've reworked it again. The blog area and the content area will be filled with more content in the next weeks.

What do you think?

Hi Danjel, new website looks nice. Some suggestions from my trained eye:
  • You might want to make adjustments to your logo vs slideshow as discussed in the other topic.
  • Your logo could do with some vertical margin ... It's too close to browser top. In my opinion, your logo and menu would look better and more clear without the filled background and default margin:

  • In your slideshow intro, you have added your portfolio? Seeing you are a photographer, as a visitor, my first target would be to look for some "portfolio" section in the main menu. There is none, and all I can see is some specific galleries under "galerie", but they don't showcase your best work. I think you should have a portfolio or showcase section that shows your best work, and you can't rely on your slideshow-intro to do this.
  • You remove the menu in your blog section? I don't  quite see the point of that.
  • On your impressum page you should revert to LEFT-aligned text and a NARROWER layout. The text is really hard to read when centered like this, and the reading width is too long. Best reading with of text for humans, is approximately that of a book, and that is why the context module width is set to "narrowers" width by default.

Hello, Karl, I agree. I put the main focus on the weddings and put it right into the main menu. Everything else I put together in my gallery. The one with the background is not only me who has the problem. On several websites I looked at, the logos were sometimes not recognizable.

I adjusted the Impressum and made the text on the left flush.
In the blog I made the menu visible again.
The logo now has more margin in the menu. And I have now set it to Wide.

Yes I have also seen this, but what can we do? We offer this as an option in X3, and just like many other features in X3, we can't prevent the user from breaking the design or not using it with good design planning. The option to just make a super dark or super-light background with less opacity to overcome low contrast is not a good design "solution". Already, the 12% and 25% menu background solutions are not so attractive. I can't remove this option just because some websites are not implementing it properly, and there is no magical attractive fix for this apart from planning properly.

In my opinion, your logo looks almost fine on most images. For those images where it is not readable, it's not really a big problem ... It's not like the visitor needs to re-read your logo on every image. You could just remove a few images, job done. A thin light-brown logo on top of mixed images will clearly have issues with visibility at times.
