Everyone... Take a look at the new frontpage... http://www.golfwrx.com

And obviously you can see the forums. Not much of a change. The Nav bar on top is new and we are working to collapse the black user bar above it in the coming days. The right side we added the latest news feed from the frontpage and we added the "Don't Miss" announcement on the top that will allow us to broadcast import buzzz.

Black went away, and lighter off white is back. Better nav and new frontpage that will work better with mobile. A lot of work.

Now at first many will not like but give it a few before you judge. At first I was not digging it but after some time looking at it I am in love. Tour issued baby!!!

Please tell us your thoughts.

Richard and the hardest working (been burning the midnight oil) WRX team. :)

Seems pretty nice.  You folks definitely keep the look changing all the time, which I guess is a positive thing.  It did take me a while to find the view new content and view replies to my posts, because it moved from upper right to upper left of the screen.  I think the key thing is if performance is quick and you can find what you need, that is what it is all about.

Same thing. Safari 6.0.


Nice look though. The fonts in the header bar and resulting drop-downs are much nicer and classier. I might rethink the all caps in the drop downs. All caps really slows legibility when applied to more than just a few words. The glossy logo looks pretty sharp too.

Nice works, gents!

When I hit "VIEW NEW CONTENT", the drop down menu doesn't show up most of the time.  Sometimes its only half there.  Also I use the lastest Firefox.  The menu bar across the top covers the buttons, half of my screen name and Sign Out, all on the top right.

FYI, the new top navigation is expanding to two lines on my browser (Firefox) in the forum section of the site. Uppercase Main Navigation text font size seems a little large (both li and li li level). The Main Navigation menu also overlaps the search div by about 5 pixels.
You might consider using a categorised mega menu which would give more room in the dropdown options.

I like the navigation of the new layout but there are two things that could use some tweaking IMHO

1- There is a lot of white now.  Not a bad thing I guess, but some other color around the border would be easier on the eyes
2- I miss not being able to see the latest stuff for sale on the main page.  Again, not major, but it really appealed to the HO in me

Other than that, keep up the great work guys.
