Hi everyone,

We're going to start regularly posting up fixes and changes we've made to the BikeRadar website and forums. Hopefully this will help you all keep up to date with what we've been doing as a development team. I'll update this list as and when any fixes or changes take place!

Fix: Images should now be displaying correctly across the website. No more grey boxes instead of intended images.
Fix: Mobile/iPad - when opening the burger menu ( ||| menu), scrolling now only effects the menu, not the background.
Fix: Zooming in and out on the website using a touch device no longer makes the page misalign/look like it's made of lego.
Fix: Survey popup on homepage now has a visible 'Close' button for iPhone and other smaller screen devices.
Fix: Links in page footer now evenly spaced.
Fix: Links in page footer now have hover states.
Fix: When loading burger (|||) menu, menu should display correctly right away without blank blue page.
Fix: Smooth scrolling enabled.
Fix: Login/Register menu is not obscured by any other menus on the navigation bar.
Fix: Menus no longer wait for all of page scripts to load, so they should be usable straight away.

We have released the slightly less risky ones today just while we ensure maintenance from yesterday is stable. Lots more to come, including various login issue fixes.

Fix: Now able to click article links using iPad

Fix: Now able again to register on desktop computers
