New home page design

Recommended Posts

I have just released a new version of our home page (e46zone.com).

Functionality is pretty much the same, but it is a fresher look of the site. I will be adding to it over the next few weeks/months, but I wanted to get the design out there.

I'd like to use the image banner as a 'random' garage or gallery. Or maybe a build topic link.

Please use this topic for discussions, issues or any suggestions.

If you're struggling to see the new design, press CTRL +F5 on the page, it'll do a full reload.

Looks ok. The colours don't really go well together and the photo looks distorted.

Makes little difference to me as I only come in via my view new posts link anyway!

1 thing though on the home page where it says "E46Zone" at the top, id make it "E46Zone.com" to match all your merchandise in your shop

Looks good. Nice to see my car on the page too ^_^

Ha. I took a few images from the 2014 calendar photos and used them (its random). I will setup a few more on rotation too.

Looks a bit better, waiting to test the mobile version.

Couple of things:

1. Can we have a longer list of recent posts on the left & the last user who updated, as before?

2. There's a typo - My Gallary'

3. Can 'My Gallery' actually take me to mine, rather than yours Sam?

1. It's up to 8 from 5.

2. Fixed.

3. Oh! But, yes, fixed.

Looks much nicer Sam, not sure the red text bits work though - hard to see against the black background - if you want to use a different colour maybe try yellow against the black ?

Why does it keep redirecting me to megajugs.com and asking for my sort code and account number? :lol:

aye if you look at your keyrings, and tax disc holders they have your E46zone logo. i feel this should be at the top of every page on your site

Can you put back the auto refresh on the recent topics too?

I've put back a auto refresh, but its a very primitive way of doing it, hence why it went in the first place.

I'll keep it on for now, and replace it with AJAX when I have time.

ETA: Easier than I thought, it now runs via AJAX, so a lot less load on the server and quicker too :)
