Our Front Page . . .
« on: September 29, 2008, 04:48:10 PM »
Our new front page now tells everyone what is going on for the RCM Retro Gaming Event / Open Day - should make it easier for people to find out what is going on . . . any comments on this?

Like the idea of announcement on the front page.Is there anyway you could make it a different colour from the rest of the page so it instantly stand out when you log in. :)

Please give Andy any sensible suggestions you have for the site because I have set aside Thursday morning to make some changes, I won't be able to do anything for a while after Thursday because I'm writing 3 websites amongst other things at the moment and time is a bit short :)

So any suggestions, please don't wait until Thursday to post them. Post them as soon as you can please!

Thanks.

Maybe you could group the list of machines on the left hand side. As the collection grows, this list will get longer.

Maybe a search function for the future?

Yes, the left hand side panel has a lot of systems now :) Grouping them by manufacturer would be a good solution, that and the search feature. Both would require significant re-engeneering of the site and would be best integrated into either a new template or this template with some major modifications, it's something that Andy has to decide and because those things would take me longer to do than just the basic maintanence I'm doing at the moment I'd want to discuss it fully with Andy before I started anyway.
Both those suggestions would add to the site I think though.

I agree - it is not something that I would ask you to do at the moment Nick, you already have way too much on your plate - maybe something to do in the future?
