Thanks

Dustin, please do make a test and publish your own pages! We asked Justin to publish his pages to have the community react AND to have new ideas rise... not to kill creativity Sad

Yes, the more designs, the better! It's a great oppurtunity for designers to contribute some of their work to a great open source project.

As requested, I've quickly converted one of my screens to xhtml/css. I didn't have too much time to make it perfect, but it validates and it looks OK in IE6, FF1.5 and Safari 2.0.4. I also dropped the reflection thing, and I think it's fine without it. It can probably be refactored to be a bit more efficient - maybe drop the conditional IE stylesheet and reduce the number DIVs.

You can see it here:

If I get some more time, I'll have a look at a few alternative designs.

Justinm, I find your theme very nice, especially without the reflections (nice too, but will probably look has-been in a short futur)

I have an interogation though, as some of these pages (the congratulation module page or the error 404 for example) will be displayed in the layout of the project. So a theme so original may produce a strange result with the layout of the project if this one is very different than your theme.

I'm asking if a more ordinary theme should not be more appropriated here ?

Francois:

Anything goes?

Color scheme / logo style you prefer? The symfony font is myriad web pro correct?

nautilebleu,

I think we will have a symfony default layout for these core pages.
Everything will be stored in the core default module. So, I think it is ok to have a full page with layout. It won't interfer with your layout. And if you want to customize them, you will just have to create a new default module in your application.

Should "Symfony" be displayed on the error (404,500,bad credentials...)?[ 17 vote(s) ]
1.Yes, of course 9 / 53%
2.No, some neutral pages are better 6 / 35%
3.I don't care, really you should better get back working... 2 / 12%

Hi justinm

I really like your work, but was wondering if it's a good idea to display so clearly Symfony is in use on the error pages.

Maybe the same thing without the "signature" of the framework should be better, i don't really like exposing what server-side software is used on a production website.

What do you others think?

That's a good point, especially from a security point of view. However, I think people need to remember that these pages are just the *default* pages that come with a symfony install.

Of course, the idea is that you will want to (and should) customize these pages with your own logo, colours and look so that it fits in with the rest of your application/project.

I think the symfony name can feature on the default install - no server administrator ought to let an unconfigured symfony system sit on a live server without very good reason.

I was just thinking that leaving default 404/500 error pages should be ok in a "rapid development" point of view.

Then of course customising it to fit your design should be an option, but often, first versions of a site should be able to keep default ones without any security concerns imho.

I think Symfony should be displayed on these default page (then you should change it to something more customized).
There could be a config setting just like Apache which permits displaying or not the system signature on error pages.

And that's the end of our contest. Thanks to all the participants. We'll now deliberate and select one (yes, only one) design for the future symfony default pages. Stay tuned, for the verdict will bring fame and glory to one happy designer.
