As you can see the site has been updated. Have a look round. Have a look at your user profile area. The Classifieds have been split into two – For Sale and Wanted.
Please post any technical problems here. That is things not working, clearly not lined up properly, etc.
Also state which web browser you are using. (if you’re not sure visit http://www.whatbrowser.org first).Posted 7 years agowoffleMember
The ‘wanted’ section doesn’t work for me – whether that’s because there aren’t any posts yet I don’t know. Clicking the button just gets me what looks to be a view across all forums (ie same as when I click the topmost banner ‘forum’ button.
Oh, and from a UI point of view some of the buttons aren’t consistent but that’s nit-picking – Edit Post and Preview Post for example. I’m guessing one is a button, styled, the other a link, styled to look like a button. That’d be a theme issue rather than a technical one though…

The page scrolls visibly behind the log-in bar which is visually a bit distracting.
I think that’s intentional – I agree it’s a little distracting – I didn’t realise it was ‘sticky’ until I’d noticed that it was overlapping and looking a little odd when you’ve scrolled down the page a little. Looks better when you’re at the top but less so if you’re half-way down a thread and it’s over some text. Bit of a jumble.Posted 7 years agomogrimMember
Holy Huge Login Screen, Batman!
Doesn’t look bad on Chrome/Ubuntu, and works fine on my Nexus One/Android 2.2.
Edit: not sure about the design, though – the rounded buttons look cheap, and there seems to be a bit of mix between rounded and square. Add in the technicolour Ragly ad, the ST Premier ad, and you’ve got a real colour mishmash going on…Posted 7 years agogothandySubscriber
Really like the new design.
Did notice a lot more advertising, do you remove that if you become a premier user?
Also I personally don’t like the way the dark background builds in chrome. Makes reading page after page in the forum a bit of strain on the old eyes. Any chance you can get a white strip in the background while the page loads?
EDIT: Also like the ASCII art when you view source … nice touch 🙂Posted 7 years agovinnyehSubscriber
Tom, how bout a consolidated view of the classifieds, as there is for the bike/chat ones.Posted 7 years ago
I’m sure a lot of stuff that gets sent in response to wanteds isn’t because people are looking to sell, but becasue they stumble across an ad, and think ‘I’ve got one of those, don’t use it et etc’. Far fewer people browse the wanteds than the for sales, imo.Harry_the_SpiderSubscriber
It sort of works on my IE6 at work (bang goes any chance of my career progressing), but if I should be logged out I can’t see a way of logging back in and my user account / Premier stuff has gone too. Oh well.
It looks quite smart on my newer computer at home where everything works.Posted 7 years ago
@brant – you’re missing something.Posted 7 years ago
IE6 login at bottom of page (the menu bar position isn’t supported by IE6)
Dark background issues noted. Will most likely just revert back to old white liney one. But people with large monitors, do you really browse with a maximised window?
IE7 button issues noted, though work on my test machine – will fix over the weekend.StonerSubscriber
The wandering grey bar at the top is a pain on Dolphin browser (Android) when scrolling/pinching to zoom/double tap to zoom, it doesnt always know what to do with itself – ends up stuck middle of the screen.
EDIT: Actually its hilarious, it ends up all over the shop.
Apart from a bit of a coding show off, what’s the purpose of it? If I know that stuff is up the top, when I need it (which is not that often) I’ll go and get it.
EDIT. Have just checked and there’s the same problem with the native browser too.
On Chrome (On my desktop) tabbing between hyperlinks doesnt seem to highlight buttons like “Edit Post”. Some of us who dont use Fisher Price Computers (aka Macs) are able to use a keyboard when navigating you know 😉 )Posted 7 years ago
