New UKCS Front Page!

Postby TC on Sun Apr 26, 2009 12:31 pm

The new http://www.ukcs.net front page is now live! This incorporates the look and feel of the new forums and presents a modern look for the website. Xerxes and myself have been working on this for a long time and we hope you're pleased with the results. There will be further enhancements and tweeks to come and we welcome your feedback.

New page: http://www.ukcs.net

Old page (for comparison): http://www.ukcs.net/oldpage.php

Enjoy :D

PS - The "Page Back" browser button doesn't work yet after an embedded page is shown. We're still working on that.

I think we should all give TC a pat on the back for the amount of hard graft and elbow grease he's put into this. :)

Looks great , pick up a lot of information from just looking at the front.

One nitpick if I may , the right side window with the latest news and such, the date column is too narrow and so the date is wrapped downwards ... looks a little awkward to me.
Tried it fullscreen and windowed on IE 7 , on Win XP home SP 3 fully updated.
I suggest either widening the date column significantly...or removing that column ... would look more pleasing to the eye.
Of course it just an opinion of mine :)
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

That looks very nice - and it fits in with the forum theme now!
I might be wrong.

Awsome with the new frontpage! Nice work :D

You know what? "Kilowatt-hours per sol" is a pain in the ass to say. I'm gonna invent a new scientific unit name.
One kilowatt-hour per sol is... it can be anything.. um...I suck at this ... oh FK it. I'll call it a "pirate-ninja".
All told, the Big Three need 69.9pn, most of that going to the Oxygenator and Atmospheric regulator."

I've got one 'request', can the UKCS logo be made to go to the forums when clicked rather than the home page?

Other than that looks great :)

Looks great!

One constructive point - I'm not sure the top banner (with board index etc) integrates properly. Just doesn't feel right, perhaps darkening the colour?
