There is something terribly wrong with Member Local Time... I have set my time on GMT+1 and it says that my local time is 02:58 PM ...But it isn't ... It's 15:56

It's one hour late ... Maybe the clock isn't adding that +1 h in my local time

CG: on the site or the forum?

well it seems to change between every page

like right now while typing this post i cant click the time or the theme change drop down box,
nor could i click them, the track post, and email buttons when i was reading the forum
its very confusing though because i swear i was able to click the time and theme box at least one time  :-/

but on the main page i have never been able to click the mark all topics/forums as read, or the time, or the theme box

I'm going to make a forum discussion thread, which will deal with all forum issues, as this one was originally meant for the main website, not the forums.

Updated news section with news about The Horde Lands being released.

I have added a little bit of code that checks if the user is using IE, and if so, shows an image link to download Firefox. Call this amoral or whatever, but I would prefer not have to cater for a browser incompatible with nearly all new web technologies out there. Exilian itself has various IE specific tweaks and hacks in order to get features working for IE. When IE supports things like CSS properly, I will remove the Firefox link. :)

This does not mean the site won't work with IE, but it will give IE users a poke in the right direction. :P

Ok, I have a plan for a new navigation system an layout for the site.

Instead of our current two column system, I am contemplating a single columns system with the navbar above the content. Unless I can find a use for the right hand column (currently navigation) I will get rid of it. This is an attempt to make the main website look a little more professional and make the navigation system more useful.

Here is the new navigation bar so far: http://exilian.co.uk/newnav/navigation.html

It has been designed to fit into a 1014 width, the width of the main content section of the site. It has drop down menus that link to various locations, such as mods, the gallery, the forums and various subforums.

This is just one part of a site redesign, and I would appreciate feedback on any part of the website that is to do with layout, colour, functionality etc. Content will come later.

I want feedback, please give it to me.

Ok, I'll start implementing it in the next few days. :)

It looks nice but you will now need to change the main part ...
First of all ... Exilian description should be on the top and news should be smaller...
Additionally you could add something to fill the space ...
I'll show you what I mean tomorrow

So, put description on top and news beneath? Getting rid of the left column provides more space for the main content including images.
