Hello

I am frantically trying to update the header but all our office's network just went down....

It will look a mess until I can get connectivity again!

Sorry

    Normal service should now be resumed - I may have missed something but - hopefully that will be a bit better on the eyes.

    Next stop is to make it all a bit mobile friendly and a little more easy on the eyes.

    Current changes are very much appreciated, and a more mobile friendly site would also be great. Now - any chance of Tapatalk support?

    Hi Graeme_S

    We are looking at all the options at the moment and we are for sure investigating Tapatalk.

    We will be going mobile friendly for sure soon, just working through the quick wins at the moment.

    Thanks for the reply, and understand completely. Just thought I'd mention it while you were looking at such things.
  • Quite often when websites change from one design to another it's a disaster with confusing layouts and lost functionality. Have to say this is not the case here, looks great.

    How my screen looks now was deliberate?

  • While you're looking at layout...

    When on Home Page (or any other) and scrolled right to the top of the page, the links menu has "Home, Reviews, Guides, News, Features, Forum, More" across the banner at the top.

    As soon as you scroll away from the very top of the page, even a single scroll wheel click.. the link to "Forum" disappears from that menu, leaving the rest. It's always done that. EVEN ON A FULL WINDOW DISPLAY IN THE BROWSER...


    Why???????????????????

    This is something we're already working on fixing - you're right, it makes no sense!

    Thanks,

    I wondered why the top half of the screen (iPad Air) was blank, then I realised that's where the ads should be, when occasionally :D An ad turns up it is half obscured by that blue bar at the top of the page so I can't read the ads, not really a problem for me :D

    The blue bar moves away from the top of the page and appears on gets stuck on top of the typing field so I can't see what I am typing (well this is my excuse for typing rubbish anyway).

    I have found that on iphone/ipad if i make a spelling mistake i cant just highlight it and click the correctly spelt word as it just flashes to copy/paste/whatever and wont let you do it.
    Also i cannot put the cursor in the middle of a word, i have to delete to where i went wrong and retype.

    Also on the pc there is a banner that appears at the top that i find annoying. I know i am on bike radar.

    Cheers

    The banner is annoying and behaves in an inconsistent way on the (Windows) browsers I've tried it on. If the window is maximised or large we initially get two levels of it, but any downward scrolling makes the top line (All, Road, MTB, Urban) vanish, leaving the 'Home, Reviews, etc.' line fixed, which doesn't make much sense. In an attempt to be 'responsive' (i.e., look nice on tablets) we get a less useful plain banner with just a Bikeradar link and menu 'hamburger' with smaller (but still relatively large) browser window sizes, and it auto-hides when scrolling down and drops down when scrolling up in a way that makes me feel slightly ill.

    I use mozilla firefox on the work pc.
    Its only annoying as if i try to have a quick look on the sly at work its plainly obvious what i am looking at. Haha.

    Oh i forgot to mention that on iphone/ipad there is often a MASSIVE lag between typing and the letters actually appearing on the screen.

    That is THEE most annoying thing for me!!

    Doesnt happen on any other forums i use (mostly IB forums)

    The site is just plain horrible on Android phones and tablets using chrome browser. Jumps around more than any site I've ever used and I seem to have to select links at least 3 times before anything actually happens. More often than not I end up on the wrong sub forum or thread.

    I guess the site designers forgot to test on Android because there's no way they could have designed the site to be this sh!t.
    More problems but still living....

    When I am on my laptop running Firefox and I scroll down a page the blue headline (Banner/header whatever its called) jumps and stays at the top of the page no matter how far down you scroll with the mouse or key pad. Its ugly as sin and makes reading a page a pain because a quarter of the screen is taken up with the header.
