New Site Look and Software Upgrade Feedback Thread!

We just have a few minor details left, so you will see a few glitches while we work. (I will let you know when it is completed.)

We're proud to announce that the new site look and feel has been completed for DeerHuntersClub.com! Our designers and software engineers have been hard at work on this for several months. It's designed to modernize the site, make it easier to use, and to make it more attractive to new members and guests that visit. Right now, the upgrade is for the forum itself. We will be working on the front page and articles at a later date.

The forum software we use, vBulletin, by default is not designed to be friendly to the eyes or to look modern. We went down to the nuts and bolts of the forum software and templates, and have done a ground up approach. There are several things you will notice now that the new design is live.

1) The site should be significantly faster.

We have applied every modern technique to speed up page load and tested with all modern browsers. We want the forum to be extremely fast and easy to use.

2) The site will work much better in mobile and tablet views.


We've started applying responsive design, and have designed and tested against android and iPhone devices, Android tablets, and iPads. If you are sitting at your desk or on your couch, or just on your phone, the site will work much better than it did before, and load fast. We are still working on improving the experience even further in the months to come, but we wanted to launch this as quickly as we could.

3) The homepage is bright, crisp and clean. (pending)

We wanted the first page users saw to look beautiful, so that when a new guest arrives and is debating whether to join DeerHuntersClub.com, they see a beautiful doorway, and they walk right in. As a forum member you can choose to use the new design (which is on by default) or you can go back to the old design. We ask that you give it a chance and see if you like it. Like anything new, it will be unfamiliar at first, but we suspect that the speed difference will make you want to use this new one. If you do decide to switch back, the link is at the bottom left of each forum page, you pull down and select the theme called "DeerHuntersClub.com Classic".

4) New users will be able to register with Facebook

5) The side bar can be hidden in your user options.

Click on User CP at the top right.

- click on edit your details on the left.
- Look for Show Sidebar on Forum Pages under Additional Information.
- Click disable and save.

6) Drag and Drop image uploader

We hope you enjoy it, and if you have any questions on the design, please let us know, feedback is appreciated.

If there are any issues you see. Post them up here and we will get them worked out. (Once we are finished.)

Thanks,

- Your DeerHuntersClub.com Team

The only thing we have left to do is the front page, but that will be done at a later date, sometime in the future.

If you see issues or bugs in the forum sections of the site, please let me know.
