We're all loaded up on our new layout. The FORUM portion is the only thing that is not yet mobile friendly. Everything else should be a bit more friendly to your mobile devices. Also, the site looks a lot cleaner and could be a bit faster for you.

Front Page
The 5 latest Packers headlines
The 10 most applauded users in the last 7 days
The 10 users with the most posts in the last 7 days
The 10 users who handed out most applause in the last 7 days
The latest "Blog" entry





PLEASE feel free to post your complaints, your raves, and suggestions as always.

Like it.. a couple of notes post cutover:

1. Stats on the front page appear still to be pointing towards the Beta site.
2. Are we missing sync'd posts.. I know at least one from the BackAlley is missing?
3. Great job... seems pretty snappy and clean.

1. What do you mean? I applauded your post, went to the front page and it now shows 8 applause.
2. No posts were lost, in fact this is the same PH database. I shut the site down for a couple hours to make backups and do the upgrade.
3. thank ya! :)

I like the new layout. My favorites link goes right to the forum page so I skip the home page so the news stories and the top posters etc are missed but no big deal.

In the last life the tweets section cut into my message viewing window and thats gone now but I am not a big fan of the tweets being at the top of every page since I have to scroll down to get past them (I don't read them.) realize I am probably the only person in the world who doesn't read tweets so its no big deal at all.

Lastly, and this may be fixable on my end, and I will testthe fact right now, spelling errors are no longer highlighted when I type. I am not a great typist and my keyboard malfunctions whenever I type a word that ends with a T and the next word starts with a T the space function doesn't work leaving the words stuck together. Again, not a deal breaker, if this can't be fixed Its not going to make me leave (sorry, you can't get rid of me that easily) but it may make my posts even harder to read.

That's it, Overall I like it. Looks cleaner and more like other forum sites. Not thatthe other one was bad or that being like all the other is good but I like it.

Somehow though, after the last look, I can't help but think it needs a little more green.

EDIT- I thought maybe it would go through a spell checker once I hit post but apparently not. Is there a way I can turn on a spellchecker? Just curious. I don;t think I will be the only one with more misspellings in my posts now.

I don't do twitter either. I was going to say something but thought maybe that is a way to get more of the younger people involved on this site. Lure them in so to speak.

I was going to point out the spell check but now there is no need to do so. I am sure we could have a contest for the more medioucure typists. I would give you a run for your money. (I did notice that I could spell check in the shout box last night when I requested it. (Right mouse click) But it doesn't work here.

The other item I just notuiced is the link that should direct us to the newest post in a thread only takes us to the top of the page in that thread.

sschind- you use that 1024x768 resolution and I had you in mind with this layout lol ... With that resolution, you shouldn't see the Tweeter on top anymore.

I'll add Spell Check to things to fix as well as Newest Post issue.

On the headlines.. there is no link to the current article.. link to the author not the article. You can however hit the discuss then from the post leap to the article.

***Tried it again.. the author link this time took to the article.. maybe the tightend one was a bad link?

I like this a lot. You didn't change it for everyone just because of me did you? Some people may like the tweets. If you just fixed mine (if that is possible) then thank you so much.

I know we talked about the resolution a bit before but I'm so ignorant when it comes to such things and I didn't want to keep harping on the issue so I just let it go rather than pester you more.

All I can see that is needed is the spell check and I think its a great renovation.

Well done.

You my friend need to upgrade from Windows XP to 7 or even 8 lol.

You can increase your screen resolution if you'd like.





Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.

In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.

Move the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger. Or move the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor’s resolution, making text and pictures appear smaller.

Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect.

If the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, look at your display. If you like the new resolution, click Yes. If you do not like the resolution, click No, and return to step 3 to try a different resolution.

Click OK.

I kind of like the white for the thread box etc ... but having the background be white also just makes the thread box hard to read - perhaps something off; like grey or faded green or something.

- keep up the good work Kevin! -

A few more tweaks. The Text Editor where we type to submit a post has a darker gray background.
Removed unncessary columns for the grid. Gotta make a better button though, that large ass green one is wicked weird.

The Spell Check is not coming back anytime soon. The developer is looking into it. Unfortunately, its not something I can do.
