Website full of uninteresting photos

Well, that title may have grabbed your eye for a moment, which my website and photos will not I expect.

I've been a long time user of Matts plugins for Lightroom and adopted Backlight as soon as it was available. What a remarkable job he and the team have done to create this. A massive thank-you from me!

My site is used to show and share my photos to friends and family. I enjoy learning about web based technologies so re-created my site from scratch ( What I found really funny was just how similar in concept and layout it shares with the fantastic site by Thomas Laukat His execution thoughh is far better than mine as well as his photographs.

I have struggled with understanding how CSS integrates but I've started to get the idea now and hope to improve as time goes on. Beats watching TV for sure. 

I've a few niggles off the bat that I can't solve. The first is the overlapping text when switching to Mobile layout, the second is the gap between the Masthead and first menu item in the mobile menu and the last being inconsistent captions which I will remove before long.

Re: Website full of uninteresting photos

just a quick fix for the overlapping text in the site title. You've set the font size to 3em, but the line height hasn't changed. Try adding line-height: 1em; to your .SVP_Heading class

SEO-wise, it's probably best that the heading of a page section be an H2 or other heading rather than a div inside an anchor tag. But that's up to you.

the spacing above the mobile menu is probably from the margin-top setting under Navigation > Vertical Navigation.

Just a user with way too much time on his hands., Backlight 2/3 test site

Re: Website full of uninteresting photos

Thanks Rob for your pointers.

The addition of line-height has fixed the pesky overlap, I have changed from A tags to H2 tags and have sorted that gap out.  Now to back it up and play with it some more.
