New layout

Post by p793 » 13 Jan 2013, 17:06

I think being redirected to a homescreen to the forums where you could see the latest posts being commented on was a great addition and should make a return, the forums feel a bit empty at the moment and just not quite right with this layout, i don't know why, it just feels somethings missing.

It would be nice! For the record, I like the new streamlined look a lot, though!

Welcome back btw, p793, my man!

Hi and thanks for the feedback, this is exactly the stuff I want to hear.
Yes, I agree that on the index page in particular is hard to tell if there are recent posts and where they are.
I'll try updating the layout in the next few days so hopefully we can get it to be as easy to use as possible.
Keep in mind that it's an iterative process - it's hard to get it right on the first try.
Anybody else who has criticisms don't be shy about posting them right here. I need more feedback like this. :)

Nice to see you too Rome :) I love how we have EF back and it's as active as ever!
The forum is so motivating, speaking to people who are sharing the same ideas about improving as footballers is amazing! I really have missed EF :)

Awesome expert, glad to hear it will be making a return. It was a very good feature

Ah just realised it is now available! A possible suggestion maybe to automatically be redirected to this page when viewing the forum?

Nice to see you around, p793.
Alright, I'm working on the template. I realize that it's still not very good but it's improving gradually.
Anyways, the list of latest posts is available on the upper right of the index page of the site: http://expertfootball.com
Couldn't find another place where to put it.
Any other feedback would be great.

No problem, I think that the latest posts feature doesn't include the year? The Craig Gordan thread is appearing as a new post but that was feb 01 2011/12 I think? Not meaning to give you more work, just a thing I noticed :P

The latest topic thingy shows the time of the latest POST not the topic... so yes the topic is from 2011, but the latest post was made a few days ago. :)
