  • Changes to Appearance

    If you haven't noticed I changed the look and feel of the forum just a bit. I know some of you hate change but I am just wondering what initial reactions are. I am wide open to suggested changes, comments, and yes even insults . It was bothering me having the banners at the top so I decided to change it up a bit.

    Josh,

    AS a fellow webmaster myself, I love the side ads instead of the top

    Why You ask?

    • Headers are for site theme not ads ( My opinion )
    • Sidebars are nicer for ads / info as they can be stacked better
    • The NEW header up top is less busy and gives me a more "personal and welcome feeling"
    These are just my thoughts of course, But yea, I like this way better

      Do I get a new free tool, for my opinion????

      Its alright, no issues with me....

      Now is a good time as any to tell you Josh, your doing a fine job around here, I don't mind changes, some are good, some bothers me, but eventually I'll come around. Woussko will be barking like crazy over the changes though, I guess we'll just have to throw him a bone to chew on..... Have a nice day, Josh

            Ok, I'll be the first to say I don't really care for the new layout. I find the page a little harder to follow with everything crammed up together and the side ads are distracting. I prefer the last version over this one.

              The only issue I could say is too bad there isn't some type of word wrap for the site...seems like some screens have that trouble.
              Mainly whenever someone posts a large photo...would be nice if the text were bunched to the left so you didn't have to scroll left/right to read 30 responses to a photo.
              The "friend" and "Thank you" features are pretty cool...they give us all a way to allow eachother to know who agree's on certain topics without making the thread even more lengthy.

                I excluded the ads from any of the screens that display posts. Its mostly just the main forum display. Its one of those preference things. I think we may try it this way for a while.

                I do want to build an actual RIDGIDForum logo for the top in place of that text though.

                Thanks for the input everyone. Negative and positive are all good.

                  I like it. The only thing I don't understand is on some posts I have to move that bar at the bottom of my screen left and right to read the posts. Maybe it's me but I don't know how to fix it.

                        Question for you guys that have to scroll at the bottom... Once you open the thread are the banners displaying on the right side of the screen.

                        Its supposed to be set up so that when you are reading threads its not displaying the banners on the right.

                        Let me know and I'll take care of it.

                          That is how mine works

                          Can you maybe put a bar at the top of the right hand tabs that will allow you to close that field and enlarge the thread topics?

                            Is the gallery really necessary? Might free up some space on the front page. Personally, I'm a little tired of seeing the snake on Ricks face or a blurry pic of someones workshop. I like the idea but it just seems that no new photos are being added to make it banner worthy.

                            Moving the links to the right side is a little wierd but I'll get used to it. You need to look at it from a newcomers perspective. Are you trying to cram too much onto the page at one time? For the regulars, we will just glaze over it but 1st timers might like having everything within reach.

                              Crack, I too am tired of seeing that picture and the one of his burnt fingers!

                              Why don't you post that photo with your soap horns and rubber ducky
