Mention your Sparkle website!

That website is very well done, consistent colour scheme, icons and layout. Couldn’t find anything wrong with it so far. Mobile version on the iphone 12max pro looks good as well.
I would have done few animation effects as slide in couple photos but not more.
Again very well done, congrats.

A really well done website @KimOliver considering all that information - well organised, legible, and breathing room! :slight_smile:

A couple of things I could suggest…

  • On a very wide screen your white coloured “Kontact” is hard to make out because it sits more on the white of the banner.
  • When finishing reading a blog post it would be great to finish it off with a link or button allowing me to get back to the Blog index page.
  • Just me… We were taught it is never a good idea to force open the User’s Email Client. Nowadays it isn’t something expected by the User.

And your website looks really really good on mobile and very legible! Well done!!! :slight_smile: :clap:

Hi Kim,
I’m very impressed with your site. It’s what I aspire to eventually as I’m just beginning with Sparkle.
May I be so bold as to ask if you would be willing to share your Sparkle file with me as a learning aid?
Perhaps, in return, I could assist in some fashion with your English language version?

Best regards, Euan

Hallo Kim, gute Seite mit stringentem Layout. Gut gemacht. Nur das Wort “Kontakt”, siehe screenshot sollte vielleicht gänzlich in schwarz sein??

Herzliche Grüße,

Thanks for the kind feedback, the issue used to happen when the browser window was being extended to extra widescreen width. Fixed the issue hopefully. newly made with SparkleApp 4

The speed of Sparkle-websites is impressive.

Thank you!


I like your design. It´s clean, clear and to the Point.
Just a question: which tool did you use to measure the speed?

That’s PageSpeed Insights:

It’s great that Duncan and Daniele put so much into technical SEO. See also: Google’s Core Web Vitals…

Just started Newbie but loving Sparkle.


Hi Duncan,

thank you for the hint. That’s a tool I did not know,
If checked some sites of mine with a good result.
Speaks for the good code base that Sparkle generates :laughing:

I was having problems with my website and blogs .
Siteground host suggested disabling THEIR built in cache with code added to the htaccess file.
we’ll see…

Well done! Simple yet elegant, a good example of what a website should be.

@KimOliver Excellent job!

And i would also, as @MiWe opted, add some (very) small animation like a little parallax effect on some images: under Literatur page - Books (image),

:clap: :clap: :clap:

Finally finished with website with downward scrolling from cliff top in Yosemite. [](
Blogging will resume.

This is the first website I have designed not for my own ecopreneurial purposes but for a dear friend at tender but insistent request, using Sparkle of course! Trilingual with Ecwid buttons and ready for 320 and 960px.

Thanks @duncan for the first aid and also for the Sparkle template I used to design the homepage.

Any feedback is very welcome!



Really well done Thomas! :slight_smile: :clap: :clap:
