I have been playing about with a new layout today, please give your thoughts on it, add anything that you think may need changing, adding, deleting etc.

Would you like to keep it or go back to the old one?

I'll have a look at making some new buttons when I get time, think they are a bit too bold, will make them a bit lighter and they need to be an even size

To be honest, I thought I'd fallen into a time warp and gone back 20 years, it looks awful, terrible cold colour, a good third of the screen is wasted with all the stuff at each side, I am on several MoHo forums, and also run my own, this is so very uninviting.

Sorry if it's a bit harsh, but you did ask, and I reckon you would prefer honesty, even from one who doesn't visit very often, there is a reason for that too of course...

No, thanks for your comment anyway.
It was put up for members to decide and I'll see what the outcome is.
In my opinion the old blue and white was old school.
The pieces at the sides are used as quick links, the one on the left being the main one which has recent posts on, this helps you to see if you have any unread topics, the one on the right has less important things on it and can be closed, there it a tab at the top to close it

Not sure what the "no" refers to Ken, but much better with the iight side bar off IMHO, I prefer a latest posts/threads tab, and a wider portion for actual posts, but each to there own, still the colour is too cold, Green is a nice one but a similar shade levels as you lighter blue, it's warm and welcoming.

On the plus side the forum looks to be a lot busier than last time I was here, ultra busy today and tomorrow, but I'll have to look in more often and join in the banter.

PS there is a latest posts link on the header, 3rd link from left.
The side bar was put there because it's what the users wanted and been there ever since, personally I use both, what do others use/prefer???

I already mentioned green so I'll suggest [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] & [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] maybe a bit lighter or darker to taste.

For other members to see this is what Google comes up with.

It's the words that count Ken. This layout works for me. Thank you for your time and organisational skills. 

Had some lovely meet ups with the motor-homers this year. Looking forward to Christmas in Shrewsbury.

Don't worry about background colours, sort your Father Christmas outfit out  and our festive meal instead.

I think a lot of the new colour scheme is an improvement but some things don't sit right imo for varying reasons. Ken I know how hard it is to do these things and w thank you for it, what I'm saying is not meant as criticism just an opinion, why not vote on certain things like last time?
I'll try adding pics and comments 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Don't know what this is and can't get it to show what 1 is!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Colour and layout looks very good it is clear and easy to read.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The header shows no resemblance to a motorhome/caravan etc site it looks cold. The orange dots (buttons) look poor compared to rest of site the header name is too clinical and cold.

This as said is just an opinion 

Keep up the good work Ken we do appreciate it

Don't worry, still work in progress Very Happy

Not sure what you mean with your first two links??

Wanted to make sure people were happy with the colour first (It's been lightened today) before I start designing loads of buttons, done some today but not too sure about them!, am planning on changing the orange buttons on the header, then we will work on a graphic, the "Motor-Homers" was a quick makeshift graphic rather than leaving it empty

If it is that click on where it says "Notifications" it will probably say you have a private message, I have found that it doesn't go off if you open the message in the usual way, you have to turn the "1" off by clicking on the notification itself

I'm after some good, clear, sharp images for the header, I've stuck a few in there for the time being, must be landscape format.
The one I have put up there now has suffered in quality when I optimised it for the web site, I'm working on another way of doing it and the images will be better.
Will need to be resized to 1000 X 200 (250 Max)
