Discuss Cooking v2.0 - Details and Feedback
1 Attachment(s)
Dear Members,

It's with great honor that I present to you the new masterpiece from the Discuss Cooking coding kitchen. As you can see I have just rolled out a new look/feel for our community. This is still a work in progress and I am going to need your feedback to really dial things in.

One of the biggest improvements is the drop down menus at the top of the page that allow you to get to all the forums from any page. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of clicks you need to get around.

Another new feature introduced in this version is the addition of the right column. I am planning to develop a way so that you can customize the content you see in that column and also a way for contributing members to turn it off completely. I will be working on this stuff in the next week, so please be patient, I will post updates as items are completed.

Please post your thoughts, feedback and ideas and I will collect them all and work to get them implemented ASAP.

Wow, I clicked on the back arrow after posting something, and the site was totally different! I like the looks of it. It will take a little figuring out, but I'm up for it!

Well, it is doing some very strange things right now (drop down menus behind ads, etc.), but when all the bugs are worked out, I think I'll like it.

Thanks for pointing that out. I have reverted back to the old skin as the site was not looking proper at all in Internet Explorer. I hope to get the issues resolved soon and then DC will be back to normal. It's a bit awkward now because many settings are in place for the new skin and it's running on the old one.

The new version sounds good! Thanks Andy, I am looking forward to it!

I like the side bar quick links when you are reading a thread.

I LOVE the idea of the new Recent Recipe Discussions sidebar section. I think that is an excellent idea!!!

That's the first thing I noticed too - really cool!
Thanks for all your work Andy!

The right side bars are great...very useful. Thanks for working so hard to make DC even better, Andy.

One problem I've noticed with the current version is that when I have a private message, I get repeated notifications of it even after opening and responding to it. That continues until I exit the site and return to it. Very minor annoyance, but I hope it's fixed in the new version.

BTW, I'm using Firefox 3 on a Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit machine.
