New site look and software upgrade Feedback Thread

Hello Everyone,

We're proud to announce that the new site look and feel has been completed for R1-Forum.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 .

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.

We wanted the first page users saw to look beautiful, so that when a new guest arrives and is debating whether to join R1-Forum.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 "R1-Forum.com Classic Light or Dark".

4) Garages will be featured on the site

You can show off your Hyundai, You can post pictures in your garage and share it with others. Make sure you post up some images to share with the community at the link below.

http://www.r1-forum.com/forums/garage.php?do=editgarage

5) Users will be able to register with Facebook, Twitter or Google+

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

Click on my profile / 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.

7) Another new great feature is the @Mention user plugin. You can tag members by simply using the @ symbol.

8) 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.

Thanks,
-Your R1-Forum.com Team.

I've tried to hide the sidebar, and saved it, multiple times, it's not working for me. Have a nice day! Cheers!

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

the top bar has a lot of spacing issues on windows IE (the breadcrumb area)

Also, UserCP is gone or I can't find it at the moment...used that a lot since it features the threads I've replied to.

Love the attachment-drag/drop feature

Jeff,

When my screen is partially minimized (try to keep it small for work purposes) I get an overlap issue in the Garage.

10-4, on it.

Should be a minor formatting adjustment.

I like it a lot. Just have to get use to the desktop site on my iPhone 6. I always prefer desktop view on mobile devices and this new design targets just that.

I really really would like to see a designated section for ALL build threads. I like viewing build threads and it would be nice to have them all in 1 section.

The open white space is for ads but I assume you have an ad block up.

If the mods agree we can add a new section to share builds or combine them.

Let the dust settle a bit and then we can make more updates.
