New Website

Post by Piston Broke » Thu Feb 10, 2011 12:10 am

Our revamped website is now up and running so why not go take a look. It's long been overdue a spring clean so here it is.
There's nothing been taken away it's only been tweaked here and there to archive some older material and make it easier to use.
Any suggestions or issues please contact webmaster@bluebirdproject.com

Top marks to our Al for revamping the website, it's been a work in progress for a while now, with input from Bill and myself also, though Al has done all the actual work. As Al says, if you've got the site saved as a bookmark, you'll need to update to this-

Slightly wrong Mike

Just make sure bookmarks are pointing to www.bluebirdproject.com and not www.bluebirdproject.com/bluebirdproject as that will take you to the old site

Cheers

Al

Looks great Alain and only down and up again in the blink of an eye, with little or no disruption those who follow the rebuild. Fantastic Job mate and to all concerned in doing the tweaking. :D

It's been black text on a blue background for over ten years...we've just altered the blue.

Excellent Work,

The site looks fantastic, I love the side navigation and the fact that the forum doesn't open a new window, it makes it so much easier to navigate.

Thanks for all your eforts

James

Hiya Al. Congrats on the new look website, there's a lot on there I really do prefer. But sorry, I have to agree with DamienB about the new blue background, it's just a bit too vivid for me. Perhaps it's just oldies like me, but if you sit reading a lot of text, it seems to pull your eyes out :lol:
That's just my opinion, but good job mate, well done.

Full marks to the team for the new website. In my view, the change in layout is spot-on and very usable. The main messages beneath the POTD seem to have more immediate impact as a result.

I have not (yet?) had the problem with the blue background, and reading the latest diary just now, I consider it more readable than before (maybe it's an age thing ...)

Well done everyone - brilliant :D
