New Home Page for Macross World!

30 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

We are pleased to announce the migration of our Main home page from the old static HTML format to a new Content Management System (WordPress.org). Please check it out here (yes, the original splash page we had for over 11 years has finally been retired! What is a Splash Page? Ask your GrandParents, they'll know. And get off my lawn! :) )

http://www.macrossworld.com/

We took the old site and stamped it "Legacy". We kept all existing content in the same exact locations, so if you had previous links to items they are still intact.

Please let us know what you think! We will fix any bugs or issues as soon as we can.

I personally cannot thank Exo, Mechamaniac, Azrael, and Roy Focker enough for their extremely hard work and attention to detail over the last couple months. We owe everything to them, for kicking this old admin into bringing us current. Not only for the Main Page, but for the look and feel of the forums here too. THANK YOU!!

Here is to a fun 30th Macross Anniversary, and our 12th!? Wow!

Shawn

The forum is still the same, main page has been changed, but with the same blue theme and same banner. I like the new worldPress.org layout.

But I'm not talking about the forums, I did mean the main front page. It's still the same MW for me. Maybe I need to eat the cookies or something.

Edit -- I took a screenshot but it won't let me upload attachments now.

Woah, looks like Macrossworld finally escaped the fold fault. :p

I'm just kidding. The new site looks cleaner and much easier to navigate. I don't even know if the previous site had a constantly updated news section. Good job, guys!

Nice to see a refresh. But it looks strange though. (guess I just have to become familiar with it)

You can check out the legacy forums on the side menu for something more familiar. :D

That looks good. Renato has access to the news site so he is able to post it. If he doesn't have time let me know.
