Big Appearance Changes -- Bear with us!

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

Big Appearance Changes -- Bear with us!

Today I will start the process of implementing a new template I designed for OnlineBookClub.org. This new template will be much more responsive and mobile-friendly.

OnlineBookClub.org is over 10 years old. When I originally made it, smartphones didn't even exist yet. A lot has changed since then, not just mobile phones. I've made a lot of adjustments over the years, but it's time for a full makeover.

In the transition process, please bear with me. OnlineBookClub.org is a huge website with literally millions of pages. There are many different features and many different sections. It will take some time to switch to the new template and style on all the pages. There may be some glitches. There will certainly be some pages that will look awful at first while I get them to play nice with the new template.

Thank you,
Scott

Sounds good! I am glad you are the one doing the techy stuff and not me. I would probably accidentally crash the whole system! Seriously, thanks for everything you do. :)

Thank you scott for putting up the new template. But i have one suggestion/query. Why does the user profile is not in any of the scroll lists on the home page. I think hat it should appear in one one of the scrolls as soon as we log in. If it is somewhere else where i have to go searching does not appeal to many people.
If i have overlooked it and i am unable to find it, then just forgive me and guide me where to find my profile information. I am new to the club.
What is the most special thing i did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

Scott, thanks for the update. I only joined in December, but I found navigation ungainly. This such an improvement.

@"Scott"
Since the update, I've not been receiving notification emails. I get the BOTD announcement, but none regarding PMs and whatnot. I've also noticed that I don't have the one click option to subscribe to forums/topics, or to bump topics?

Do you mean where you set up your profile? If so, you can find a link between the FAQs link, and the PM link :tiphat:
