      The All New SkyUser Website Is Coming Soon

      Behind the scenes we have been working very hard to get a brand new look SkyUser designed and coded to implement for our brand new look.

      The good news is, we hope to have this finished and uploaded for our beta testers to test, and hammer for issues within the next 24 hours or so.

      We have tried to make the new look fresh, and easy to navigate and hopefully, we have achieved this with the new design. Our beta testers have already made a few recommendations to the original designs, and we have taken on board their feedback and had the design and coding changed to reflect their thoughts. If you don't like the new look, you can blame them. (only joking)

      We have also taken the decision on this refresh, to redo the homepage, although this is still being designed, and will not be introduced at the same time. Along with this, we will be introducing, (hopefully) two options to view the new look website, these two options being, fluid, and fixed.

      Fixed is a set width centred in the middle of your browser with white space to either side, whereas fluid will fill your browser window, as it does on this version of the skin. The default will be fluid, however, you can change to the fixed version via your control panel. We will also leave our two existing skins on for our members to choose which one they would prefer.

      Once the new look is live, we will accept criticism, and if viable we will try to implement any newer or better ideas. We have spent a very considerable amount of money to bring our members and guests the new look SkyUser, so please, don't be too critical Simple changes we should be able to do, more complicated ones depends on the expenses incurred, as designers and coders ain't cheap. (obviously I am in the wrong business)

      We hope you enjoy the new look, as much as we have enjoyed creating it and don't forget our competition to design a logo, you could win a cash prize for your entry.

      Here's a sneak look, but don't tell Glenn I have shown it you.



      Oh, I forgot to add some more really exciting news. We are working with a partner website to bring you a real useful FREE addition, if you are on Sky Base, Mid, and Connect. More news to follow soon...........

      The new homepage CMS should be live over the next few days. As this is not going through the beta stage, there maybe some issues that need sorting out. Feel free to use this thread to report any issues.

      The designer / coder will just upload it once completed, so you may find this happens at any time over the next few days.

      Re: The All New SkyUser Website Is Coming Soon

      We have now released the new look in open beta. The new look is now our default look on the forums, and we will be working to complete the home pages imminently.

      Whilst we appreciate not everyone may like this new look, we are pushing this as the new default. If you would rather use the previous skin, please select the SkyUser V2 option at the bottom left of the forums.



      As this has taken an awful lot longer than we originally anticipated, to help us finish it quicker, we are opening up this thread for your feedback.

      i think the logo dosent look right and the ad at the top under the search box is in the wrong place possibly under the reply box or at the side
      and possibly the site founder , exchange title could be bold or bigger than the details e.g. sky max part like
      Site Founder
      Exchange: Marshalls Cross
      Broadband ISP: Sky Max
      Router: Sagem F@ST 2504

      You need to go to SpecSavers, its already bolded on the exchange etc.

      As for the logo, its there to stay until we can get a better one, the competition is still open.

      The ad, will be improved in the future, hopefully.

      Thanks for the feedback.
