The new forum design will be coming soon, and since there may be some problems, questions, or suggestions... instead of using the appropriate forum (and you should post all normal questions there anyways), I am going to use this thread to make it easier for everyone to find.

The new design will look exactly like the current design on the main site, http://www.finheaven.com.

I have had some reported problems with the design, and all have been fixed except for one problem, which I'm still trying to figure out.

Anyways... please give me some patience with this... and please wait for a few minutes... and it will be live :cool:

This is sharp AJ, really like the new look..Good job, what software are you using to do this with?

Awesome AJ. One problem I was having was the quotes being in HUGE letters. Ill report back and see if it is fixed.

Another suggestion. I like most things about it, but the useable area has been reduced by like an inch and a half on either side of the forums. Is there any way to regain some of this area. It smashes everything to close, on the main page each thread subject takes at least two lines now, most taking three or four, making it harder to browse quickly without scrolling. Just a suggestion.

FinHeavenAJ

So, just so I can get on the same page... when you go to a forum, you would like to see the thread title to fit on one line... correct?

If so, I may be able to work on something like that, will have to see though...

Thanks for the suggestion... does anyone else like this idea?

Wow, this is the best tech support ever! :) The subject line was an example, but the suggestion I had was to make the green border not so thick. This will increase the space available for subject lines and written posts. So less scrolling would be necessary. I do like the border, so I think removing it all together would eliminate some asthetic appeal.

Great job with the site, nice improvements

Yea... I've been thinking about that... I'll have to make a new header just for the boards, which would be best anyways. I'll start working on it soon... just don't know when as I have some homework to finish off... and then have a Math final on Monday...

Thanks for the suggestion though...

Anybody else have this problem?.....This format is wider than the other one on my pc by about an inch. I have to use the scroll bar at the bottom to read every thing.

I'm going to solve the problem when I get a chance... I think I know what it is :D

AJ, I checked other sites and the problem is on my end. I`ll just stay with the pixel change for now.

Props to ya AJ, the new design looks great, only problem I have is the one thats allready been brought up about the quotes, but everything else is awsome. :)

AJ, the new design is awesome! I'm with the previous poster about narrowing the green borders (perhaps half the size) but, other than that, it's excellent! Keep up the good work bro.

I have the same problem, it is making the forums a lot harder to read. :(

However, I do like the new colors and the new homepage looks AWESOME.

This isn't normal behavior, but if I'm on the Dolphins main board and click "GO" next to the "Moderated By" pulldown while it still shows "Moderated By" it throws an "Exception occurred" JavaScript error.

http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=2

It works fine if I actually select a moderator's name.

I'm using IE6 on Win2000. I'm also a Web QA guy by trade, so forgive me for being anal-retentive :).

I don't see any other issues. Looks good, man.

I know this has already been brought up (about the green borders) and some have asked that they be narrowed, my only hope is that they be BLOWN UP!.......and I mean with a BOMB!.....I'm sorry, I don't like them at all.....I like everything else! I love the new style but, those borders make me feel like I'm using about half of my screen.
JMO, AJ, no offense pal. I know you're working hard so don't sweat my opinion....Fact is, it's just NEW, I'll probably get used to it. :D

just a suggestion, but there should be a link to the "thread page" at the bottom of each page. This way when you scroll down to the bottom of any page and are finished with the thread you can go right to the "thread page". But I love the new look!!!!

AJ, I like the borders and new additions. I am surprised that noone's mentioned the ever-changing football players on the main page. I had to go back there and I was like wait a second, I thought I just saw Ricky's picture there? Next thing I saw was McMichael's pic. That is very cool AJ!! Great job!

The news wire. The artilces from herald, goPBI, and sun. usually new articles are in there. I have not seen any new artilces on the home page for a while. Unless it is just my computer.
Here is what i get on my computer. They have been the same for a while.
