hey all, check out the new main page and let me know what you think! still working on the sub pages (reviews, etc - everything will have individual pages) but this is a start.

thanks for all your support!

Looks Good TC. The only thing I would lose is the random poster/user. if someone has a avatar messed up you get the infamous red x which I hate. But the site looks pretty slick. :D

I noticed that either because of [split] topics or [moved] topics it throws the main page off. It looks like it leaves the in-valid original link as well as the new link.

/me was the dissenter :oops: ;)

There's a big blank space on the right of the page that the tables don't fill, and personally, I don't think a dynamic front page is the way to go. Separate news updates would be better - just give certain people the rights to post to a new "Front Page News" category, and let everybody reply, comments style. Then on the front page, just list the latest 10 posts in the category, with (24 comments) or whatever at the bottom, linking to the news post. IMHO, a much cleaner implementation - and you've obviously already written most of the code necessary :)

don't know what you're talking about re: the blank space, but the rest of your post is totally correct. i agree 100%, which is why there are the categories there are now in this forum. i just haven't placed the proper restrictions on the front page yet. but, it's getting there. the general idea is in place. 8)

not to mention that cutting down on some of that will eliminate the insane page generation times we're getting right now....

but yeah, i'm still playing with it..

ok, fixed the remote avatar bug on the main page. also added links to the still in development reviews pages. check 'em out. for some reason the audio reviews page is only pulling certain reviews and not all. this is a bug (reported long ago) that i'm still working on...

also, only posts in the news category are listed on the front page now, as it should be.
