Look! It’s a new site! STW Mk3 is here…

by singletrackjon 14

Unless you’ve never been here before or are spectacularly oblivious, you might have noticed that this front page of this website has changed a bit. In fact, the whole site has been overhauled and improved. What you see before you now is Singletrackworld Mark 3. Tom de Bruin has been hard at work, spending many, many days and night tinkering with the backend, bringing the site bang up to date.

As well as our new magic picture-news slider which highlights the most interesting content on the site along with and the rejigged columns, you might have noticed that there are little copies of the magazine right down at the bottom of the page. If you’re a Premier User, clicking on any of these will take you through to that issue in the Mag archive, where you can enjoy our multimedia packed online copies of the magazine. Get in.

Up at the top of the page is the control bar for your account, whether it’s standard or Premier. Here you can access your forum profile, change your avatar picture, alter settings or see what you’ve posted on the forum lately – useful if you had a few beers last night. You can also add favourites to keep track of what’s going on and put in your Twitter, YouTube and Flickr IDs so people can find you elsewhere (Edit Profile > Networks).

It’s also from this bar that you can manage your Premier account, settings and subscription, plus you can now remove the ad bar at the top of the page.

For people wishing to buy and sell kit on the Classifieds, that forum has now been split down the middle into For Sale and Wanted sections, which should make it easier to get your hands on what you want from the massive amount of second hand gear that changes hands.

Over the coming months we’re going to be working on lots of other exciting new features, so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, there’s also a ‘new site’ thread on the forum, so if you’ve got any ideas, suggestions or problems with the new-look site then stick your oar in HERE.

  1. Very nice. Fresh looking and lovely. Well done to your Web fella for a sterling job of work.

  2. Nice one Tom, really like the look of the new site, thanks

  3. Where’s the ‘back issue’ contents info? Please reinstate it.

  4. I’m sorry can’t resist. To paraphrase the above blurb ‘Tom DB (good work fella) has been tinkering with the backend’.
    The image may change, but the childish humour will never leave.

  5. Post counts and a join date displayed when you post would be good.

    never understood the need for a post count, it’s purely a “look at me I have no life” or look I can post 20 million time and still have not added anything to the content.

    Anyways, why has STW Mk3 fecked up my iphone ability to display pictures from here?

  7. “For people wishing to buy and sell kit on the Classifieds, that forum has now been split down the middle into For Sale and Wanted sections”

    Woo hoo! Thanks, been wanting that for a while.

  8. Looks as it were a Seat Ibiza Fan Forum, soulless. Mleh!

  9. love the way singletrack is written in the source code!

  10. source code does looks cool!

  11. Ouch. On some of those comments. Yeah, thanks for pointing out the source code. Happy to get rid of a little bit of advertising too. Ta

  12. Never really looked at the website on a previous subscription, just to download the mag.

    I think it is pretty well laid out, certainly likely to use it more than I used to! The Trail Guide and For Sale & Wanted are likely to get hit.

    Good to see some stuff about the MTB Olympics course too.
