Site tidy up
#1
You may have noticed that I've done a bit of 'cleaning' up on this site and moved things around a little.

Some users have pointed out that there was just 'too much going on', especially on the home page.

Changes include:
  • Removal of side column
  • Removal of busness forums
  • Removal of news feed forums
  • Reduced page width to 65% of screen
  • Reduced picture & comment count for the albums on home page and moved to bototm of screen.
    • I hope these changes makes the site feel less cluttered and a little easier to use (home page should load faster as well), appreciate your comments either way.

Nice changes Admin.

One point that I would like to change is to make the width 100%.

At 65 the page looks a little strecthed.

That's just my opinion of course. Cool

Do you mean squashed jarraman? I reduced the width from 100% to 65% as it was looking stretched to me (I run at 1920 x 1080) so I've squashed it down.

I'll do some tests with different screen resolutions to see how it looks.

I personally prefer the look at 65% but if others prefer 100% (or another setting) then 100 it shall be! :typing:

Yes, sorry I mean squashed. I find a bit more difficult to view.

Sorry Admin, But I would prefer it at 100% SmileSmile
I do like that the side column & business forums have been removed but I think that a lot of older of posts & albums & photo comments will be overlooked/missed in the new format.
What about putting it to a poll & go with the majority?

We'll run with it for a few days but it's looking like 100% is the prefered choice.

I preferred it the old way I come back off holiday and log on, and I thought my computer was on the blink, and started trying to put it right, as I know nowt about computers I had to eventually give up, so I was reading the posts then I came across the post that every one was haveing the same problem, so I just left it. on reading more posts I see not many people are happy with it, so it could be a case of if it is not broken don;t fix it.
