New Homepage Launched!

New PentaxForums.com Homepage

I'm very happy to announce that our new site homepage has finally been completed, and is now launched, just in time for our 500,000-post milestone celebration!

The new homepage features Pentax colors, is much easier to use and much more inviting than the old homepage, and has the potential to house any content that can't currently be managed by the forum system.

I hope you like and enjoy the new look of the site! Comments are welcome!

Major Shock!!

I am not sure that it is displaying correctly in Firefox 3 on XP Pro. I don't have time now (bedtime), but will try and post a screen capture up to let you see what I see.

I've tested it successfully in 7 different browsers (IE 6, IE 7, FF 2, FF 3, Safari, Opera, Chrome) with no problems. However, if you're experiencing issues, please don't hesistate to post a screenshot so that I can fix any potential problems!

I really like the new homepage, it looks GREAT in Firefox 3 on XP Pro! It's cleaner, more professional looking, and makes navigation a lot easier. Congratulations on a tremendous job!

Looks very decent, I use a shortcut directly to forum in my bookmarks, though

While I certainly like the physical layout and structure of the new home page, must say the red look ("skin") is just dreadfully gaudy, Adam. Especially so in the forums where it so overwhelms the eyes, distracting from the content of the messages (the text in those messages suddenly seems a lot smaller and less important).

Thanks for providing an option to switch it back to the green layout, but wish the forum software would remember my preference so I don't have to reselect that each and every time I sign in. When you changed the forum layout the last time, you provided an option to select the "skin" in the preferences (which I used to select the "skin" I actually preferred), but I couldn't find that option this time amongst the many forum preferences.

Not exactly thrilled with having to select the green layout while just scanning new messages while not signed in either, but not much say in that given it's not my forum.

It looks awesome, Adam. Love the colour scheme. (I've had it set on red ever since becoming a member)

Nicely done, Adam. This site is one of my few regular stops and this is a genuine improvement. Keep up the good work.
