Hi all

I hope you all had a great Christmas.

I've now set the new-look YachtsandYachting.com live. At the moment the sections you'll notice a real difference on are the homepage, news articles, photos, weather, advertisers and jobs sections.

We'll be rolling out the other sections in the new format as when we develop them.

If you prefer the old version then you can still use it at http://old.yachtsandyachting.com - old.yachtsandyachting.com !

Many thanks, Mark

Looks good - articles in particular. One point, the sub-menu allows a split between dinghies and yachts in the sub menu but having selected an article there is no obvious navigation back on the article page. Perhaps it just needs a button to allow navigation back to the section the article belongs to,

Interestingly, after reading the story of the loading of the VOR's on the IPad, pressed the back button and it took me to the old front page - when I was originally on the very good new front page previously!!

Probably a caching issue. If you reload the homepage it should load it properly.

It has brought a fresh look to the site. As the magazine has had a new look it is good to see the website doingso as well.

Well done to Mark and Mags for the work they have done.

Generally not a bad look but the news articles need a slightly more defined separation between them i think... there is something not quite right about it although that could just be the shock of looking at a new page which was so familiar before!?  You have obviously had a far more productive christmas than me!

Good job. Nice to see all the trade spam separated from the dinghy and keelboat sections - although I appreciate it is the life blood of the website

Hi John

The trade news will still be within the categories that it's relevant too. The great thing is that our marketing partners have really worked out how to make their news interesting - two of the most read articles from the last fortnight are commercial press releases!

Cheers, Mark

I like the position of the Latest news which now occasionally has me reading stuff, spooky how my picture appears at the bottom of the article, then spotted it as either my facebook or google+ I.D. So yes vast improvement, bang up to date, like it a lot.

I have that dilemma all the time! There are of course many types of multihull that aren't keelboats / don't have any lead, but I try to put the reports into the category where they are most 'at home'. The Extreme 40's are the ones that blur the line most I guess - I think the AC45 fit in the keelboat category just because they are America's Cup.

Like the look of the new site. Well done with all the hard work.
 
[Maybe the 'America's Cup' category should now be moved to the multihull section?]

I knew I wouldn't be able to please everyone with the new website which is exactly why I setup http://old.yachtsandyachting.com - old.yachtsandyachting.com . This will remain available for you since it picks up exactly the same database content as the new site.

No, tube code doesn't require moderation. The post itself was irrelevant and unsuitable and so was deleted.

Hi Mark
I think the new look on the home page looks nice and clean but then when it comes to using it it is not as functional as the old one. Specifically if you want to refer to a news article that was a few days (or weeks) ago the show more feature is slow and inconvenient. To keep clicking to reveal an extra few lines at the bottom is painful. The old version use to jump quickly and show pages at the bottom so you could jump 5 pages at a time to speed it up. For this reason I'm grateful you have kept the old version an option.
Regards
Bob

Hi Mark
 
I think this one comes under the it's just me category, but I am finding the home page really slow to load - once loaded, then no problem, away we go.
My situation when browsing at work is that as I work for a Spanish (Basque) company, all internet requests go from the UK to Spain (server location) and then back. 
Interestingly, I have not seen any slow down on other picture and link heavy sites, so if there is something going on in the background of the site that can be changed to improve loading speed, I for one would be a happy bunny

I'm guessing that you're using Internet Explorer 7 at work - there is definitely an issue with how IE7 handles the page and it can cause problems and slow loading.

I'm developing a 'lite' version of the homepage which will automatically load with IE7 (IE6 already automatically redirects to old.yachtsandyachting.com . It's not that much work so shouldn't be too long to do. I'll keep you posted.

Give me a shout if you're not using IE7 - Always good to know what issues the new site has!

No... not just you, it has been happening for me too, I've had to give up using the last unread and try and guess which page its on and go there, the number of unread posts in a thread is accurate, its just the link...
Bit of a pain sometimes, but I get by which is probably why I haven't pointed it out before.
 
 
While I'm posting, however.............
 
Firefox works brilliantly but.....
 
IE9....
 
Loads very slowly, as some others have just said, it has to be something to do with the code as loads very fast in Firefox on the same connection and PC.
When I click on "dinghies" from the menu below the picture the formatting goes to pieces vertically, or at least it does in what I would call the center frame (design and code has moved on so much since I used to do it). I hope the screenshots illustrate this, note the size of the scroll bar to show how "long" the page has become.

I get that one too on Windows 8.  I dont even bother with the last unread button at home and just guess the page

IE8 at work and home - no speed problems at home, but home does suffer from 'last unread post' problems (Windows 7)

That is very odd indeed - does this only happen on the Dinghies tab? If so, it'll be much easier for me to identify the problem in the code.

Many thanks for bringing this to my attention!

Ditto everyone else, there does appear to be a little glitch with 'unread post' clicks taking me randomly into the thread. I was also on the dinghy section catching up just now... left halfway through... when I came back all the previously unread posts had disappeared/reset. (Windows Vista/IE...sorry don't know version).

Just checked it and yes only happens on the "dinghies" tab, "keelboats", "most read" etc all format correctly.
Hope this helps

Roger, thank you very much indeed for posting the screenshots - that really helped me narrow down what the problem actually was. Bizarrely I couldn't 'see' a difference in the code, but when I copied the exact same code from the keelboat section and changed the references to dinghies it worked!

So all in all, I still don't know what caused the problem, but it's fixed now so I don't really care!

I've also just fixed a small css problem which showed up after the initial fix.

I can confirm also that not only is the dinghy tab now working perfectly, but the site loads just as fast on IE9 now as it does on Firefox, maybe related problem or you've done something else...Wink

Mark,
would it be worth constraining the width of the forum page container so that it sits within the boundary of the menu bar as per all the other pages on the site? At the moment to my eye it doesn't look coherent, you've got page widths jumping all over the place. I'm using a 1600 px wide monitor, so I guess that on a smaller one - 1024 px - it wouldn't be a problem. The container/div housing the home page is only 960px wide whereas on the forum it expands to 100%

I had that, fine one minute and looking out of focus the next. I guess it is a rendering issue of some kind. As to how to fix it I am no website man!

Hi all

I've implemented the latest change on the http://www.yachtsandyachting.com - home page of YachtsandYachting.com

Try scrolling to the bottom of the page and see what happens! Theoretically you can carry on scrolling back to 1995... (please, for your sake, don't try this).

Also all the tabbed news (Dinghy/Keelboat/Industry etc.) now only loads once clicked making the initial page load much faster.

Hope you like the changes!

Cheers, Mark

that'll be something to play with during those insomniac nights then, very good!

Is it just me...

that could do with a search facility on the home page, particularly for the "latest News' content.

I know I can search the clubs and classes sections, but say I want to search for an individual or posts by a specific organisation?

It's not just you - the search is one of the next things on the development list. The current one (me experimenting with SQL's Full Text search) is pretty useless Embarrassed

To be honest, when I'm searching the site I just go to Google and type:
site:www.yachtsandyachting.com search words

We will make it better!
