New Surfski.info layout

Hello all

Anyone have any feedback on the new layout of surfski.info? Still a work in progress - the articles in Tips & Techniques and Safety need some revamping.

We're about to add a new reviews module that I hope will be interesting to people.

Will also be making a big effort to update content regularly moving forward...

Hi Robin,

I must admit I hadn't realised the whole site had been revamped because I had a direct link straight to the forum.
After a quick look I would say it looks much fresher, uncluttered and smart. Look forward to more updates and have seen articles I have not previously read.

Regards

Mike

Looks and feel much better now. It would be great if one could follow the racing information and results from this page.

That would be ideal, but the page is already wonderful. The closest thing to a surfski community that I have found. Thanks for your effort

Excellent Rob, working really well. Would be good to see Thank You from others more often, try to do it where I can without going over the top. Many brilliant contributions sometimes swallowed in cut and thrust between combatants. As the forum very much the key element of Sufski.info here's an opportunity for many who tune in but don't comment to add their two bits/two bob's worth.

Great work overall.

Very nice site, the forum in particular as well as good contributions from yourself!
One thing I have been looking for that might fit in here would be a world wide ocean race calendar where members could add information obout race dates, places, and links to race information (results when done). It may be some project to setup if you don't have a suitable calendar module, but it could be quite self organized like the forum, once up and running?

Layout looks great, thanks Rob.

One thing though (and this may well be just me and my computer). I just tried to post a piccy (3.7mb), but it wouldn`t load it. I tried the add attachment as well as dragging it, but to no avail. Like I said, may well be something at my end, but it used to be ok on the old layout.

Nice new layout. Looks great and s easy to read.

Only small problem for me is that the previous version would keep me logged in. Now, I have to sign in everytime I come back to visit the forum. Maybe there's just a box to check and lazy me didn't find it...

I will mirror the sentiments already mentioned on how nice it is to have a forum like this. The hard work is appreciated.
It would be nice to have some posts in some kind of "sticky" or an easily reached spot. Posts in particular are Owen's Surfski length x width list and Kiwi Dave's Surfski comparison one. Unless I missed something, I end up searching through the posts to find them. Other than that, all is well...and thanks again for the effort.

Rob 99% is super but the layout does not fit my android phone (galaxy 7) properly.

Fyg; on the forum pages the placement of the the hamburger menu and the starting line of the replies does not fit correctly ( the reply overlap the heading)

:-)

The changes are really nice. I used to be able to stay logged into the site for days. Now I have to sign in every time open the page. Is this intentional?
