The "new look" looks good but, where are the various forums located?

Earlier this morning, I was able to click on the tab at the top The Airstream Knowledge Sharing Forums and that would take me there but, now it seems to just refresh the Home Page.

Shouldn't there be a link to get to the various forums or am I over looking it?

I do that and it just up dates the home page with the list of latest posts. I can't find get to the actual forums.

I don't see a navigation bar next to it.

Try clicking on the new posts button in the bar at the top. Once you have the list then the forums table will appear.

OK, that works. But, why can't Forums be added to the list across the top where User CP, Register, FAQ, Members List, Calendar, etc. are listed? It would make getting there a lot easier.

Andy - have you slept yet?

I miss the photos, left column, e-bay link, Karma, rivets and wish that the page was wider...

I love the enhanced text options, better search capbalities and hot links. The drop down menues when you hover over a users name are a nice space saver.

I am undecided about being able to view what others are currently browsing.....

and I assume that the vast wasteland of empty screen is waiting for the installation of other features...?

Huh? Where's that feature?

...I guess I shouldn't spend too much time on the article about Paris Hilton.

click on quick links tab

The drop down menu has a "who's on line" option. You can watch others surfing habits - interesting.

Bug Reports

1. The page titles need to be fixed

The window title of the home page is "Home" and that will be the name of the bookmark created with "Add to Favorites." It should read AirstreamForums - Home

The window title of the forums vie is "Forums" and that will be the name of the bookmark created with "Add to Favorites" It should read AirstreamForums - Forums

Within a forum, the window title is Forums - Airstream Community Forums. It should read AirstreamForums - Forums - Airstream Community Forums

2. On every page, half of the window vertically is taken up by the
a. the ASF tab at the top,
b. the strip with a link to "Home" on the home page (which is redundant
since you're already on the home page) or a link to "Forums" on the
Forum page (again, redundant) and the "Welcome Username."
c. the menu
d. a big white space between the menu and the useful stuff on the page

3. Every page continues to load, and load, and load, and load...
Hitting the browser stop button doesn't stop it. It never stops.

4. There is no link to the Forums page on the home page

5. There is no link to the Home page on any page except the Home page

At the bottom of the home page, just left of the words "Community
Membership Continues To Soar," there is a red X icon for a picture that
fails to load. It links to "http://www.airforums.com/images/on.gif"

On the home page, I would personally prefer to see the "calendar" at the bottom of the left hand strip, and on the right side, the Photos at the top with active users below that.

On the Reply to Thread page, to the right of the Title block, there is a red X icon for a picture that fails to load. It links to "http://www.airforums.com/forum/clear.gif"

That's what I'm seeing so far.

Great, I like it!

But . . .

How come there are automatic avatars for vintage Bambis, vintage Sovereigns, vintage Overlanders, BUT NO VINTAGE TRADEWIND!

Help pay the freight, visit the sponsors sites.

Moe,

There is a home button on the bottom of the page. I think it should be at the top too along with just a forum button like we had before. This allows a one click link to the forum tree without multiple page loads.

My only complaint is the last 25 posts list shows the post originator, not the most recent poster. I used that a lot - like I could usually glance at the list and see the last post I had participated in because my name was still on it, and all the posts above that would be new. Or I like to see what certain people are saying even if I wasn't reading that thread previously, so if I see they posted last I'll go ahead and check out the thread.

If this Quick Reply feature does what I think it's going to do, I'm gonna have to say I like it! Lets see...

Still settling in. I miss the "Home" button. The screen is there when you first come to the site but you can't get back once you reply.

Othewise I like it so far.

Thanks for al lthe hard work Andy!
