Okay, we've been working on the website redesign on and off since march and the new website redesign is done.  (it's actually been done for a few days now, but I decided it would be good to wait for Canada Day to release it.)

The website is viewable (reasonably) in all screen resolutions larger than 800x600.  The website has also been tested in Firefox 1.0+, Internet Explorer 6+, Opera 9, and Netscape 8+.

The new redesign is based on the new logos and the goal of moving the website/community towards a more professional look and feel.  

There was lots of good information on the old website that was a bit hidden and didn't look like it was actually a part of the club website.  All information is now in a the same template and hopefully the new nagivation system is sufficient enough to get people around where they want to go.  

Note that we are still having a little bit of an issue with the who's online coding(the last member is cut out) but our programmer (Perry from idforums.net) has been working on that.  

We want the website and the forums to come closer together and I'm hoping the redesign on both fronts will help make that happen.  All The best content on these forums, with the permission of the author, will be put up onto the main website, to make sure that the great info that we provide here on the forums is a bit easier for people to find.  The website is still pretty high up in google searches for "S12" but not the forums, so hopefully this will at least help people get redirected here.  

And if you haven't figured out by now, the website address is http://www.club-s12.org

ps: happy canada day(I will be sleeping in til 5pm...:D)

  haha me modding would be a disaster.....Id get all power hungry and  demand n00dz from everyone. Then make all the canadian s12er's come here  and massage my feet and make me jello pudding.

Tedious?  This coming from a person who uses the word twice in a sentence?  I laughed repeatedly...

for me everything works fine.  Can you be more specific and let me know exactly which links are broken for you?

edit: are you talking about the who's online and latest 10 posts stuff?  If so...ahha damnit, I knew I forgot something.  I fixed it on the main page, but forgot to do it for the rest. (the problem was a single $....this is why i hate php and all programming languages :D)

site actually looks professional finally. im used to the nice big forum button in the upper right corner, so now it takes me longer to get into this section, but thats alright. i love the "latest posts" section on the main page. real cool


"like people, every car possesses a unique character, with its own DNA, talents, and idiosyncrasies. push it too hard and it'll turn on you, as a person would. if its worth anything, it gets more interesting the more you get to know it"

luck is earned through hard work and determination, not to mention the willingness to take risks and to see bad luck and setbacks as opportunities for growth and a new direction.
