We've had the new look site up and running for a while now and want to ask you, the member, whether you prefer the new look or the previous look. Just to remind you, here's a screenshot of the previous look on FreewareBB ...

The new look is a bit more contemporary and polished but, the sidebar menu options could use a bit by way of tweaking. A good example comes to mind when I think of sidebar search and atomization of results and that is NewEgg.com.

Back to the topic -- one easy way to resolve the dilemma surrounding old and new is make the sidebars slide out menu options or visible with a user's preferences. You'd be covered and free from ridicule as the responsibility for preferential display of content rests solely on the shoulders of the end-user/visitor of this site.

Take it easier,
Rob

New look is better, though I think there should be a username/password box to login at the top, so people don't have to go to the login page to log in.

Thanks for the response Rob, we were almost at the point of creating a new nav for the old look when we decided a new look altogether was needed, I think we'll investigate and mess around with a few dynamic menu's, possibly showing menu heading only and slides our to reveal content ...

again, thanks for the note dstrout, will keep this is mind also but please keep the suggestions coming all (IMG:https://freewarebb.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
Thanks

I like the new site, too. I also agree with dstrout that the login should be available as part of the header.

Thanks for all the comments so far, it really does help us make sure we're doing it right, from the votes received it's obvious the new look is preferred which is a relief to be honest and I will be dealing with the nav bar over the next few days, hopefully make it much cleaner and neater (IMG:https://freewarebb.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
Please do keep the suggestions coming though.

I like the new look very much as it is easy to use, fast and appealing to the eye.

Tweak the sidebars -- collapsable!

Also, an extended search and filter functionality would be nice as sidebar content like NewEgg.com's advanced search sidebar that lets you filter the results in a fashionable, yet practical way, and all at 0 calories.

This procedure would require some serious tagging but, in the end the whole site and every user would benefit from the undertaking even if a new search and/or filter system was implemented.
