If you find things that need fixing, drop them in here. I'll stick them on the list and pass them over to Mark and Martin tomorrow.
Broken relaunch stuff(117 posts)
Thought I'd post somoe bits here mentioned in other threads as it looked a little bare and so things dont get re-reported :)
1) About page has links to old site and old message board etc
2) Updating profile via the Profile link in the forum doesnt seem to work (atleast for me)
3) "...strangly I'm running the IE8 RC1 and the main page of VG247 doesnt seem to work right in IE7 compatability mode, but it works fine in normal IE8 mode. More strangly the forum has the standard odd rendering bits in IE8 but works fine in IE7 compatability mode...!"
It's not really broken, but you might want to modify the 'wp-login.php' page to match the theme of the site, like it was previously. :D
Yep, yep. Will add all that.
Also, not broken, but it would be really cool if we could get 'Digest' pages for days past. Like, all the headlines from today, then click back for all the headlines from yesterday, etc. etc.
Other than that, I think the site looks great. Congrats!
Yep, I'll ask mart. That'd be cool.
I want to make a note for myself - move "Forums" on forum front page above "Latest discussion"
Whats the idea of rss feed?
In IE7 all article text appears in a very small (and very tall) column on the left hand side, which makes the site pretty unreadable.
There seems to be a single orange pixel dot on the grey background between the 'Send us news' and 'RSS' buttons on the top right of the main page.
I can send you a screenshot if it's just me...
Noticed top buttons like:
Are on the loose ;) (Firefox)
It also would be nice if we could add a profile picture.

What do you mean by "on the loose", Welkers?
There not separated, screen:
Ah right yes, that's on the list. Cheers.
Mainpage > Latest on Forum
- If you click on a link, you go to the topic, would be nice if it went straight on to the latest post so we don't have to scroll down all the time ;)
Theres no page title on the main site anymore. It just has Firefox or whatever. The Forum is fine though however.
rss wont load and also links shows as this one http://www.vg247.com2009/02/02/eurogamer-germany-gives-killzone-2-an-8/ (missing the / after the .com), at least it happens with firefox 3
Cheers. We'll get the RSS thing fixed this morning. The page title thing should be easy, too.
Pat, I just wanted to let you know that since the relaunch all the articles that are put on the site are showing up like this for me (just the articles not the titles for them, i'll use the Prince of Persia story as an example)
Btw love the site, I have been a day one reader of the site and I can't believe it's been a year already.
Eek. What browser are you using? And glad you like it :D
I'm using IE, its version 7 (Its the one that comes with Vista)
Yep, I know about this one. It's top o' my list when I get in, in abouuuuut... 45 minutes.
Just a niggle, really, but.... when I click the VG247 logo (top-left) on the forum, I expect to go back to the main site. Not reload the forum. :-)
Furthermore... what the fuck does this actually MEAN?
"Allowed markup: a blockquote code em strong ul ol li.
You can also put code in between backtick ( ` ) characters."
It makes no sense at all! :-D
Heh. I have no idea :D
It's tags you can use in your posts - links, quotes, code, italics, bold, unordered list, list item. Seems pretty obvious to me!
You might wanna take a look at the latest comments box when someone posts a link in the comment. Seems to be doing something rather funky and pulling comments from somewhere else. Firefox, Chrome and IE all doing it.
Ta. We're going to have a proper look at the comments box later today.
VERY MINOR oddity, the 'Latest Comments' button at the top of the page has a capital C for Comments when you are on the forum but a lower case C when your on the main page...
[EDIT] Same goes for 'Log Out' but with the O
