    New Home Page Concept

    Hi TBMOTORING,

    I've been working on a new home page for a while now, as some of you may have known. I've finally got it to the point where I think it's useable. The new style is more modern and sleek, IMO. I'd like your opinions.The Recent Threads list now shows a preview of the first post and also displays the poster's avatar. Another neat feature is that I'm able to promote threads to 'articles' which can then be featured on the new home page, either above or below the Recent Threads list. I have attached two styles that you can vote on and pick which one you think looks best or offer a suggestion for an alternative.

    Warm regards,

    Marc

    Maybe make the banner a bit wider to fill in some of the dead space up top. Otherwise looks good

    I dont know if he can do anything about the banner, i think it depends on the resolution of the screen/device.

    Correct, the theme is fluid and will change depending on the resolution of your screen. It's the same way the banner behaves now.

    I voted for carbon, change things up a bit. Can we put a Wardfab banner somewhere as well?

    Re: New Home Page Concept

    That piece at the top won't change in either of the new designs though. Either way, I prefer the blue design but kind of the like the way the current homepage only has the thin lines around the borders instead of blue all the way around.

    Marc, what ever happened to that new banner design we had the poll on?

    Re: New Home Page Concept

    The banners are staying, if anything I may add more next summer. I'll be adding a links section to the new home page where I can put a GouletFilms hyperlink.

    Nabs, I don't think Matt would mind if we used the banner he designed. The original grew on me though so I decided not to change it.
