    By now you've probably noticed the layout change with the left navigation menu on all the pages now, and it has been revamped a little. The reason for the change was basically to eliminate the forum links being at the top of every page, they tended to look kind of haphazard and wasted usuable space, so now all of those links are on the navigation menu. Also using the large Wolfgang guitar menu seemed unnecessary on the forums, and it took up a lot of bandwidth, so I went to a little easier format to read and follow. Hope you like it, I know it might take a little getting used to, but it will be better in the end. Much more uniform now.

    Not sure if you saw this in Main so I'll post it here.

    When I'm inside a thread, I have to scroll a bit to the right in order to read the whole post. Which also means when you come back after having posted you have to scroll to the right to click the "GO" feature. A little less friendly than before.

    Looks cool otherwise.

    What size is your screen set at Glenn? 800 x 600?

    This same thing (the scrolling thing like Glenn mentioned) is happening to me too. Otherwise, the new layout looks great!

    Hmmm...I could make the left a little narrower, but might not fit as nice. Let me think about what can be done.

    Lovin' the update, Brett! I tried the site at school today, using 800X600, and I had a scrolling problem on Ultimate.cgi but I opened a thread and it appeared to work fine.

    Works great, looks great, excellent update, much more user-friendly now

    I'd hate for this to become a pile-on, but I've had the same scrolling problem that Glenn, Steely, and JWS have had.

    Other than that, though, everything is pimptastic.

    Hey guys, I just switched from 640-480 pixels to 800-600 pixels and had the same scrolling effect on both.

    At home I'm on 1024X768 and it works great.

    HTML tables...aren't they FUN?

    I'll try my ol' decrepit 1997 computer with the new forums and see what happens (provided it doesn't crash )

    Yes the scrolling problem kinda sucks, but unfortunately the alternative is to have it look much worse if I try to correct it. I like the look so I am very hesitant to mess with it any further. Now I know on 1024 x 768 it's fine, but I know a lot of you will not like that small setting. I'm still looking into alternatives.
