Sweep up of issues - day 1

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Good CO, Jun 6, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Home added again to header menu
    Search results page / last 100 header compressed to reduce white space
    Gallery front page album allows uploads
    Quotes borders changed from green to dark grey
    Temporary fix to login / logout layout issues

    To do (and probably would have been done if I hadn't spent the day answering the same questions again and again! - whinge moan):

    - add permanent message counter to at least forums and front page, maybe the header throughout the site.
    - run a poll in a week to see if anyone cares about the avatar side change.
    - Reduce the width of the avatar column, regardless of which side of the forums it sits
    - run a poll in a week to see if the front page insults should stay or go
    - add a "what are these" info box by the side of the social bookmarking tags in the footer.
    - fix 'user information block' - currently unusable as cause layout issues

    There may be more, but for today - enough!
  2. Why? Not like you've been busy or anything..... :wink:

    Only joking boss, sites looking great. :D
  3. Quick question about the times displayed in the forums.
    It is reading GMT+2, although the setting in my user CP is for GMT+1.
    A bit confused about this...

    Covered somewhere in the other thread - I tried changing it back, but it then gave the "you are not allowed to post..." error whenever you try to post. I will have to do it in the silent hours and there will be an hour without posting.

    PM info OK?
  6. Good to see the pm box is now viewable on most pages now. Thanks, GCO. :wink:
  7. Has anyone pointed out a little issue with the images section of the site? The filmstrip below the images is wider than the page. Looks a bit odd.

    Think it looks great but could you add a few more characters to the front page Recent Poster name, please? I am appearing as "in_the cheap" rather than my more graceful title :D

    It looks good, and its nice to be able to see PM's from wherever.

    You should add colour to the ARRSE mascot on the header, in my opinion!
  10. gco, jobs a good un boss, like the new lay out and the comments next to your name when you log in are rather amusing.

    the only problem that i have had is when i go to a thread it jumps to the last page of the thread, or if it is only a single page thread it goes to the bottom of the page.

    apart from that happy days
  11. Good effort!
  12. Any particular reason for this, GCO?

    People bitching mate.
  14. GCO this is not a wah honest, but what do the terms between the user name and the medals mean? I know some refers to donations but can't work out the other bits.
  15. Sorry, been away for a bit, didn't realise, thought someone was having a pop :oops:
