Welcome to the new design

A bit tired after an all nighter with the team to get this live. I'll checkin tomorrow after some much needed rest and give everyone a better update. Briefly:

- A few known bugs on profile page
- A cleaner look means things have been shifted a bit, so some adjustments will be needed. As I get feedback we'll adjust. Things like "whos online" etc
- A major major revamp to the Buy & Sell section

AND WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED.

Coming weeks:
- A mystery section that will be next to "Photos"
- Awesome homepage being built as we speak
- A lot more

I hope everyone likes the updates!

Looks great, but the ribbon bar on the home page is missing. Need that to mark the forums read after New Posts.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

I like the new look and feel, very nice! Hats off to you and the crew Andrew.

You even made Al look better. Pure genius.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

On the homepage, immediately after all the forums, you'll see the link "Mark Forums Read" I will also likely add this option under your username drop down (top right)

Looks good.

One little bug - click the 'Ferrarilife' logo takes you to 'McLarenlife'.

Looks clean. Two things... I still don't see an FF and F12 section, and I too can't seem to access the new post feature.

Gotcha, and I like the idea of having it with the New Posts button too. Makes it easy to mark everything read after opening the threads of interest.

One thing that's always bugged me about vBulletin is that if 2 (or more) threads are updated in the same subforum since the last visit, only the latest updated thread shows up in the New Posts. I've missed many thread updates because of this - any idea how to fix? Note, this isn't a problem "just" with FLife, it's any vBulletin based forum.

don't like it. Used to be able to select the common task items like New posts, who's on-line etc. Can't even find the search function.\

either too dumb or it is well hidden. guess that is one of the 'items' to be done.

Guess I'm just too old on some changes.

Very pretty. Please pour yourself a Beer and enjoy.

Couple of bugs to work on but I'm sure you'll get there.

Good Job Andrew, I looked at it last night just after the change and thought I had broke something, or went to the wrong link

I then saw your first post here, and when nobody had posted I said Id keep quiet just incase I was dreaming, I had been on the go for 24hrs.

Top job ''behind the scenes''

Brian,
