New Design Released!

Wed Apr 02, 2014 11:16 am

Hi Everyone.

We've refreshed the design of the site. I'm anticipating some odds & ends that need to be fixed up, so please do post them here.

Thanks,
Darren

Hi Darren,

The link I use the most was the "view active topics" at the top of every page.

I used the "View New Posts" page all the time and would like to see that return.

+1 on the View New Post link. The page still works; http://networking-forum.com/search.php? ... d=newposts

View New Posts was the one I used most, as well. I believe a good number of us would like quick reply and edit functions available.

While the ONLINE banner makes Settit's avatar look like an angry (angrier?) wolf, it makes mine look like a pirate and obliterates the Cthulhu head off of srg's avatar. Either we need to sign in without appearing online, or that online indicator should go elsewhere, like not on the avatar.

Also, 150x150 avatars FTW.

any way that we can hard code the width to prevent this issue? this variation within widths makes it difficult for my eyes to adjust on where the content begins.

Maybe I am missing it but where is the "Subscribe to this thread" option now?

Large images also seem to behave unusually in posts.

Sorry but the new design gives me a headache... Tons of white space, not much content
I think I'm going to migrate over to reddit/r/networking going forward.

As stated, this is a work in progress. Tell us what you want back or what new stuff you think might be cool. I believe the new site owners are taking all suggestions.

This is going to take some time to get used to, it's a huge change in design. Not saying I can't get used to it.....but it's like somebody just came into my home and rearranged all my furniture and repainted the walls! This site has a huge following/user base. I think the best idea would have been to post some examples and let people vote.

Aside from that, my monitors are the hi res 27" 2560x1440 and the threads are now a smaller column down the center of the screen. Having the forum make use of the entire page would be great....and our hotlinks on the right side as well as a list of latest post/most active
The best part about telling UDP jokes is I don't really care if you get them or not.

Would love the new posts option as described previously, and also the view active posts if at all possible

1. view new posts

2. edit posts (hey I make a lot of grammar/sp mistakes and it drives me nuts when I can't fix them after posting).

3. There's column headers missing, and you kinda have to stare at it for a moment and guess what's what.
Example:

Image

You're supposed to *just know* that the little arrow to the far right of the screen will take you to the most recent post and the name will take you to the most recent poster's profile?

4. Also, table formatting issues as mentioned. wastes a ton of screen real estate and doesnt respond well to attempts at re sizing the browser window. Example:

Image

I appreciate that the site is free and I know it's a pain in the ass to host Internet message-boards.

Look forward to seeing the usability issues resolved.

Thanks.

Hello, new owners!
The light gray on white color scheme is painful on the eyes. Could you darken it up?

Thanks
