• We are live with vb4!

    Enjoy, there are a few issues (category links broken, login form not styled propely) but hopefull most of it all should work.

    Fixes for issues will be coming soon as well as some new features but initially this is vb4 relatively flat.

      As per previous response, ZH has to create a theme for this himself and it is in the pipeline. It will be a template as before with all main site features that are not required will be removed to make a "lightweight" theme.

      Hmmmm, overall look is ok. I much prefered the "latest posts" box in the middle of the front page to see what was currently under discussion. Now I just tend to have a look at the jobs pages and then shut it down. Oh well, that's progrees for you I guess.

      I agree. The "latest posts" box needs to return in the same summary form as before.

      Actually - it needs that back and/or news content being regularly posted - the first page needs to encourage people to stick around and explore. Once articles start appearing regularly (as in one or two - at least - a day) that should do it. It's easier to have it be the forums though, as we're constantly writing them, so they're fresh.

      Blimey... go on holiday for a week and someone changes things! Body-clock thinks it's midnight, so I'll spend time getting used to it tomorrow.

      My avatar is distorted on the top right of the page. It's been stretched vertically for display

      It's Ok in threads though

      Could you possibly post a screenshot in the Site problems section and I will see if I can find out why.

      I miss the forums "news" bit being in my face, so I can see the newest forum posts. Instead, it seems to have tucked itself down in the bottom right corner.

      New forum posts, which to be honest is the bit i read the most needs to be better placed. If you swapped the edugeek news section with the latest posts section it would be awesome. As it is the site looks great, but isnt as easy to view as the old one. Edugeek has been my homepage for my browser for over a year now and i loved the way new post popped straight up on my screen, not so happy with having to scroll down and get the maginifying glass out to read them squashed in the bottom right hand corner.
      Like the look though. Nice work..

      Just like to say the new site looks great!
      You've done alot of good work here.
      Just trying to get my head round where everything is now but I'm sure it won't take too long.

      Site is loading really oddly for me in IE8. Lots of white space, lots of excess blue background with a report button at the bottom of the whole site.

    I know that, we used to use them. But that kind of stuff requires a login. The general public won't be able to access that stuff.
