Admin are redesigning it and it is at moment slightly harder to navigate.
I have already raised issues on the colour design of forum and headings.
Please let me know what things you find difficult etc.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Looks good. let's see how it goes. I have been having trouble trying to log in. I don't know if it's my internet network provider or my browser. I just managed to open the site today and see the new changes.



Wenger Is Gone Now So Can We Be Allowed To Breathe Now???

It looks like those sites that you click on and they don't fully load, so it's hard to navigate and you give up.

The site. It is unreadable. It is making my eyes bleed profusely.

Times New Roman when you're typing (In 2019) is cruel and unusual punishment.

This may be of interest to some (including admin)

Hate the Twitter redesign? Here's how to revert to the old desktop version of Twitter:

This month, Twitter has rolled out a huge redesign of its desktop platform, in the hopes of making it ‘faster, easier to navigate and more personalised.’

Unfortunately for Twitter , most users have slammed the update, with many urging the tech giant to revert to the old layout.

Thankfully one Twitter user has found a way to get back to the previous desktop verison.

Scott Bixby, a reporter at the Daily Beast, tweeted a video, showing the trick, which involves the Twitter Directory.

1. On the lefthand side bar, click More

2. Click Settings and privacy

3. Under the General column, click About Twitter

4. Under the Other column, click Directory - this will open a new tab in your browser

5. On this new tab, click Home

6. You should now be reverted to the old version of Twitter!

@Site Admin

How about a handy little toggle feature for valued users aka content creators + transient folk taking a gander at the platform (and the advertisments on the platform) to view each message board in it's classic colours, a simplified theme with just the adverts + text content, a custom theme for registered users, and the latest exciting interface from D.A.G.

Orange and Blue

Can we go back to this classic theme

Warm Orange Background, Blue Text

Basic Complementary Colour Theory & Design

All of this with strategic placement of the club's home colours of red and white.

A far cry from the cookie cutter:

[insert main home colour here] + white + black text

presentation of pretty much 99% of sports club message boards on the internet then and now.

Columns

Left column: vacant

Right column: loaded with More Arsenal Headlines + every ad going

Please

reposition the forum links on the left, heck reposition some of the ads on the left as well

and

position user posts dead centre in the desktop version of the site

btw

could the outside border banner ad (Braun for me) take five, whn you're scrolling down a page?

Editing post titles should be back now.

New markers are back as long as you’re logged in. And if you click on them it will jump you to the first unread post on that thread.

I’ll look at more control over colours and themes.

Cheers

Jon

But the topics no longer appear at the top of each post, nor was the topic section blocked out.
It was Topic followed by name and time of poster

Also added individual message boards links to the 'Message Boards' menu at the top of the page.

It may be just me of course, but I find it hard to tell who has posted original message and who is just quoting it. I have to double check.

Re: Board/Site.
Padre Pio 07 August, 2019 15:02
I agree its not that definite, I find it hard too. Admin is now on holidays so will raise later, do you think a blocked out heading for each post would help?

Are there any plans for the footballnetwork to move to https//:

Re: Board/Site.
Padre Pio 17 August, 2019 07:41
Why would we need https? There are no financial transactions, and there is no info stored directly on on the site

1. You get deprioritized on search engines if you don't have it.
2. Some Browsers will show users a message that says the site is not secure, potentially putting people off joining.
3. You do store usernames and passwords, they have to be transmitted over the Internet (http) for you to authenticate the user. Many people use the same password for every site they go on.
4. Other information also gets transmitted across the Internet such as your ip address and device information.
5. Ssl certificates are now available for basically no money so there is little reason not to do it.

Re: Board/Site.
Padre Pio 17 August, 2019 16:29
I have asked the network to look at these issues and see what their response is.
As its the weekend we may have to wait a few days.

Does this mean our security is at risk?

IP adresses are only visible to administrators and protected by a separate password. The only info we keep is your email address.

Are passwords at risk though?

I cant obtain any password and I am authorised to enter admin area.

Firstly I'm no expert on security specifically.

My answer would be that you are no more or less at risk than when using any other site on the Internet. Having https would make it slightly harder for a hacker because when you transmit your password when you are logging in, it will be encrypted.

However, sites that have https regularly get hacked by various methods, so it's by no means a guarantee of security. It's just good practice for websites to have it, especially as the search engines treat your site as if it is insecure if you don't, regardless of how secure the site actually is.

Basically as a user, I wouldn't worry about it.

As a site owner, there are only positives for doing it.

Just to note that we now have an https URL.
