Loving the New Look!

I love the new look at the top. Especially now that there's a reviews tab.

"Tips" link is kinda easy to miss though.

Ironically, the Submit Tips thing was the first thing I noticed when the page was loading.

Us getting fewer emails would not be a bad thing at all.

Glad folks are liking it. A small touch on the surface, before a real redesign lands some time in the future, but hopefully it makes things easier to find for the general reader.

Under the hood, the TA site template has been completely restructured. It's a more proper arrangement and makes for less headaches for various routine drills we need to go through on the backend. Also, about 50K has been shaved off of the page, so loads should be somewhat quicker.

There's a glitch in the forum template as viewed on the iPad. I'll get that worked out here shortly. Nothing huge, though.

I think my favorite thing about this is that the buttons are substantially easier to hit on the iPad (and iPhone in non-mobile skin). I was always fat fingering that.

I think there's a bug created by the new look.

Anyone getting this to happen? This is in Firefox but it also does this in Safari.

It happens to all drop down menus it seems.

Ah, thanks. I'll get on it.

There's almost nothing I prefer to editing vBulletin templates.
