Add a link to the Wiki into the navbar perhaps?

Just so you know the website link at the top of the page gives a 404. As do all of them but the wiki one.

In case anyone is a bit behind, the location of Exilian is now http://exilian.net/

I'm going to use this thread for updates as to what's going on with the websites. A lot of them will be tiny, barely worth a post, but will only appear if they affect the site from the perspective of the user.

So first update:

Added CSS3 feature for rounded corners. If you use Firefox 3 or Safari 3 or higher, you should see it. If you're wondering why I bothered, I reckon the effect is quite nice and the amount of code that needed to be added was tiny:

Code: [Select]
-moz-border-radius: 10px;
-webkit-border-radius: 10px;
Guess which is which.

If anyone's wondering, for browsers that don't support this feature, nothing will screw up, you'll just get the normal square corners.

Updated ETW page with release date, and System requirements.

Just completed a mass cleanup of various pages throughout the site; some may have slightly different layouts, but otherwise ok. Pages now look nicer and have useless and unneeded code stripped out.

If anyone notices anything missing or out of date, or just plain wrong, post in this thread and I shall endeavour to fix it.

Two notable updates and some small fixes:

Added a feature which highlights the current page you're on in the navigation bar. Most websites have this feature and ours shouldn't be any different. Tell me what you think of the colour and/or anything else about the navigation in general.
Added page transitions feature to the site, only viewable in IE, but with FF and Safari getting the rounded corners, it balances out. If you're wondering what they are, just view the site in IE and find out. ;)

Sorted out some CSS glitches on the site so it should now look almost the same in all browsers besides specialised features.

Any comments, please post here. :)

There is now a links page with links to fellow fan/mod sites at http://exilian.net/links.php

There is now a news box in the forum next to the banner, this will have a summary of the new in the announcement forum.

I think that the letters in news box are too big and way more highlighted than ones in banner
