NEW SITE - BUG REPORT THREAD

Post by the paperboy » Mon Jun 24, 2013 7:05 pm

"Tell me why... I don't like Mondays..."

So, the new site is being tested and tweaked right now and that's right, kids, this is the thread for reporting any weirdness you see.

So please have a look, click the big shiny logo in the upper left corner of the forums. Or just click this:

http://www.winterwind-productions.com/

And let us know what you think, what you see, what's acting weird.

And yes, right now we know that for some reason with the new site, apostrophes, hyphens, accents in European names, etc, etc, have been replaced with weird and wonky symbols. We is a' working on it!

Another fast breaking news story...

Thanks.

I think all the funky characters with European accents should be fine now. Some weird issues with quotation marks and apostrophes in some of the older files. That should be fixed too.

We have noticed a weird issue with IE, specifically IE10 shifting the links in the nav bars to the right, hiding them behind the search box but everything seems good in FF and Chrome from what I can see. And...

Hello... anyone here besides Marcus and me?

Cleaner is a good word.

And wow, I should sent you a copy of the code Gavin did. My jaw dropped at how different it is from the previous versions of the site. Part of that is time changes but most of that is this is what he does professionally. Now... if only I was a better designer. The site looks better than it did but I'm not a designer. Someone else could make the best looking site ever, Gavin could code it. Gavin just did a fab job coding my amateur look. :)

Now, he did do it so that it works on mobiles (cells and tablets) so how is it looking there? Or is that what you were looking on? I just have a my laptop to check with.

Yeah the bug had me locked out of the forum for a few days.

Um... there is no issue with the forums. We're talking about the redesigned website which has no technical connection to the site at all. Whatever you experienced with the forums only affected you.

And the new look and layout? Gah! What is it with prompting people. Feedback is like pulling teeth. But then you probably don't even remember what the old site looked like. Hell, I don't think Marcus even knew we had a site. I think he thought the forums were the site. Not that I'm comparing the two of you. :D

And of course, you're not actually reading about those because they're dummy titles, just placeholders for testing the layout of the Latest Articles header. But I thought they and the JJ bit were funny.

I like it, less dark. Granted I haven't been able to get to see the JJ article :( I keep clicking it and nothing happens.

Um? Less dark? The site was pure white before, with thin grey borders. Surely you jest?

And what did I just say above? That those are dummy titles for testing layout. There are no such articles, silly boy.

I am jesting however, I must be a dummy as I fell for the title for 5 minutes

Well, they are great titles that make you really want to read them. I should write them as real articles. I just haven't felt very funny for extended periods. clever titles are all I can do at the moment. Brilliant jokes of mine though, if I do say so myself, that only you and and one other noticed/commented on. Marcus of course, is oblivious to everything. Those joke titles were in the mockup image for the new layout I posted a couple months back.
