I like the new updates, especially being able to just click on the community tab and going right to the forums. When I first saw the new site updates I was like wow really, really bright. LoL. Still cool though.

the seperate buttons wit big gabs between it from 'fxhome products etc.' don't look nice at all. atleast make the borders of it round. The blue looked better than the green. The rest looks good smile IMNSHBCO razz

Yea,
The lightsabers and the icons on the side of the page seem to have a very slight bluish tinted box around them. It would look alot cleaner if the images, like the lightsabers and everything were blended to the backround color. I remember what the first site looked like as ive been coming here for years, and its amazing the ammount of improvment the whole group has made. It seems like you guys have gone from a small group of people to a massive community of knowledge. 2 thumbs up in that regard!

I assume you are using IE? IE doesn't support transparent pngs properly so you end up with the blue background effect you are seeing. We had a script that fixes this but it seems to have gone astray. I will add it back in.

Found another bug: The Manage your Movies page has the pictures from the old purple site, and they're all broken up. Ctrl-F5 doesn't fix it.

I have found that on various pages the links at the top (FXHome, Products, Store, etc.) are blue.



That is on the Merchandise page. I have also seen it when viewing various users' profiles.

I've tried refreshing and it stays the same and I'm using IE.

Ditto

And there are still some typos on the product pages. I think theres one in the very first sentence of the visionlab hd page... as well as the one i mentioned a few posts ago. Not very professional.

Another little bug I saw: At the spot where it says what programs I own, it shows a picture of the ELDV box but AlamDV2 has no picture, which looks odd.

I can't see a typo in the first sentence of the Vlab page - could you point me at it please, Evman?

If anybody else spots typos, let us know so we can fix 'em. Cheers.

My product backgrounds in options are still dark grey, looks very goofy. Also, the plugin buttons have a plum trim, I know this section is dead, but it wouldn't be too hard to fix them. There are only about 4 or 5 buttons. (Download, Gold, Silver, Bronze)

Here are some old "FXH's" (FXH, Alamdv.com, CSB-Digital.com), the second one (in the order I am posting them) being the earliest I remember.









A lot of the images and things are broken, using http://archive.org 's "Way-Back Machine." It is really usefule for looking at comparison improvements, old sites for fun, or a broken tutorial URL. (Uses I have found out of it.)
