    The New Frontpage Launches!

    As you may have noticed, we have launched the new TranceFix frontpage!

    There are a lot of kinks to work out and the tweaks are ongoing. We always want your feedback so feel free to let us know if you think anything on our website could be improved or if you have any suggestions about what we can add.

    As a reviewer, I've noticed the YouTube links seem to be gone from the reviews.
    Other than this, I quite like the new look. Would be awesome if the forum part could look like that too!

    I've got a few suggestions which I'm gonna write later on because I've a busy day ahead.

    Other than that, great improvement! Would be interested in seeing a revamped forum look too.

    Can you give me some examples? Maybe there is still something I can do about it.
    It was a real big challenge to migrate the content from the vbulletin cms to wordpress, unfortunately with some things I was unable to export them in a correct way.

    As for the forum; To be able to do anything with the forum I had to move the frontpage to new software first. After the frontpage the next step will be moving the forum to other software and preserve the frontpage style- but first things first; the frontpage.

    I checked the first two pages and all video links were gone. My review of Tempus was posted just after the new look was on, so it has the links. YT link in my review of Story Untold, was also gone, I just inserted it again.

    Other examples: https://www.trancefix.nl/frontpage/2...ersion-rielism
    - SoundCloud player not displayed

    Same prob here: https://www.trancefix.nl/frontpage/2...ai-progressive

    Ok, here are a few things that kinda bother me.

    Firstly, clicking on a thread on the frontpage doesn't take you to your first unread post in that thread like before. Instead, it lands you on page 1. Sorry but that really sucks. While we're there, 5 threads for the recent forum threads panel is too small a number - change it back to 10.

    Secondly, there's no user panel up there anymore - so I have to actually go to the forum to see if I got quoted, thanked or stuff like that. You can just add that stuff to the LOGIN panel on the right below the header and article tiles, since it does show your avatar and link to your profile.

    Seems like the frontpage got separated from the forum almost completely - and that's an OK direction, even logical. I don't mean that just in its design, but rather in interconnectivity (if that's the right term).

    I'd like to see them being a bit more connected again, and a forum revamp in the future (but just the looks).

    Other than that, I like the design of the FP, the logo too. And that CHECK ALSO thingy is really cool - although I don't read many articles here, I think a lot of visitors may be encouraged to read more.

    Thank you! I can work with that. I have fixed the soundcloud links.
    Can you give me an example of youtube links not working?

    You can click notifications for that on the right side panel right?
    The problem is that we're working with two different types of software but we did want to keep the same login details so people do not need to login using two different accounts. But unfortunately it's not all that easy to integrate. Will try and see if I can integrate it a bit more.

    See my previous post, frontpage was step one to be able to revamp the forum. I"m going to need some time on the frontpage first but after that we're migrating the forum to new software.

    I can't see the links anymore at all. Can't pinpoint which had it, but normally the most reviews do feature video links.

    Thanks! I have fixed that now too. For now I have set the threshold to 7 - I need to do some styling to it so it takes up less space.

    Hmm that makes it a bit difficult for me, all youtube link should either be converted to a plaintext url or a youtube video.. I have not yet found a case or can think of a reason where the full url disappeared - but if this is indeed the case I could really use an example post ..

    You're quick! Thanks for fixing that.

    I can't. They are nowhere to be found until I open the forum - and they are shown at the top, just like before. In that panel on the FP, all I have is "Site Admin", "Profile" and "Logout" on the left, with avatar on the right of the panel.
