New Look Front Page
I am very thrilled to be able to announce our new look front page. This will hopefully give us a much more professional appearance and help to get people interested in some of our older lists.
The changes include links to Amazon for some of the popular books listed on the site, as well as links to the lists which featured them. We have also split up the your view topics from the lists, and administrative posts are also separate. Over time I will add more books to the list, and extend the most popular lists to 30 or so.
The changes should make the pages load much faster (though we are currently experiencing a speed glitch, so it won’t be obvious until that is fixed).
The front page also now features hot topics from the forums – which will help to boost the numbers visiting there – and they are definitely worth the visit.
I have tested the page in Firefox 2, Firefox 3, Safari 2, Safari 3 (Windows and Mac), Opera 9, Internet Explorer 6, and Internet Explorer 7. If you use any of these browsers (or any others for that matter) and experience problems, please be sure to let me know so that I can fix them.
The next step for me will be to look at the sidebar and article pages to see if they need updating.
I hope you all find the new look useful.
