Wow the new layout looks great, nice job..

But now it's a letdown when you go into the forums they still look the same :shock:

Paul's going to have trouble hanging up the Christmas lights.

I kinda like the forum the way it is though - s'easy to find your way around.

Yep! I was googling a particular lesson and when I got it I asked to myself "is this the right guitarnoise.com?"

Looks great!

Huh, what??

Oh lookie that. It's all modern over there.

I'm glad someone mentioned it. I only have the forum page bookmarked. I seldom go to the front page anymore.

I can change it so finding Private Messages is easy and straight forward again.

I was also thinking of allowing everyone to embed Youtube videos in their forum posts. Good idea or not?

Embedding YouTube videos will be fine. Just be sure they don't play until clicked.

Hi Paul,

don't change the private message thing on my account, now that I know where to go its all good.

When you say embed I take it you mean that the youtube window plays inside the GN forum post. Thats a great idea. I guess we're just about ready for the next level. I remember at the beginning most of us were really cautious of exposing too much of our identity and now personal images are no big deal.

Then again, I suppose in the "Sunday Songwriters Forum" an mp3 for a new song just wont cut it anymore and a video clip will become the norm :lol: . Actually I've often thought of doing just that.

I reckon you should go for it

cheers

Paul

You can now put your YouTube links here in the post. For example:



See the YouTube button up there to the right of Font colour? That's how you do it.

I like the new look. The soft edged buttons look nice. :)
