I think I saw the most current updated picture. It looks good, I like the layout. But, Bill, man, where do you come up with this color schemes.

Nice, but that is not the format that was put out by SO on the September 30th update. The menu is on the left side, not the top... and lacks a 'more' tab...

I think it would be very usefull if there was a function that shows all the threads that had activity in the past 24 hours. ALL the threads.

That maybe a few pages, but it would make sure that absolutely nothing would "slip by", which happens quite regularly.

I am sure that you as ATS staff agree with me.

You wouldn't want people to miss anything, right?

Very much in favour of this change

Art work, html and css and getting it all to work together can be tedious. Everyone has their own opinions and taste so here's my $.02 worth. I like the layout as it is now and here's why.....

The colors and smooth buttons looks more modern and professional, however I would put those navigational buttons at the top banner like you have in the old web style. Furthermore, I would put in a sidebar as well. The top of the sidebar would have the ATS logo in the top corner and stitch both the side bar and banner bar seamlessly together. Then have center main page like it is in the center with scroll bars and on the right side frame for advertisement and what not. This would still allow the ability to change the background colors or pictures to give a new look and feel IE: Like Winter/Christmas, fall, summer, spring like themes allowing and giving you the ability to make the site look different and something new once in while without completely doing a makeover or major changes. Most websites will have a stationary banner/sidebar of some kind allowing fast navigation. If people think it takes to much footprint well they need to learn to use keys to change views IE:.... [crtl]+[scroll-wheel] or [ctrl]+[z]+[scroll-wheel] for zooming capability. Last but not least have a link to toggle between 2 different layouts, why not have both??

After some lengthy research and offline testing, I'm zoning in on a navigation system that remains simple, yet supports flexibility.

www.abovetopsecret.com/ats53D.php

Click the thumbnail for a view of how it looks on a iPad in "portrait" orientation:


While there's much about the aesthetics of a left-side navigation to like, the reality is that modern users (especially mobile) are accustomed to horizontal navigation/menu.

This example shows the full secondary menu as how it would look on the "Top Tier" pages "above" the actual discussion board. Once inside the discussion board, it goes away to leave the simple six-item main menu.

And the "more" drop-down works when you click it (no hovers in the new ATS).


There may be some tweaks and location color coding of the main menu, but unless we see an overwhelming backlash... this is the one I like best.


Oh... and it does a neat sticky trick when you scroll.



(disclaimer: not yet tested on all browsers and mobile devices)


Only seeking comments on the User Interface and layout at this point. The primary colors of the text and background are still being compared on a range of devices for possible changes.

You should make sure the logo is all the way visible, it is the most important aspect to have a strong brand.

Looks good.

One minor request. I'd like to see the MyATS option appear on the main bar.

Part of the new branding is a cut-off logo as you see it in the new design.

I for one applaud the work and effort.
I'm glad we have a team who keeps up on the latest and continuously tries to improve the services.

Now, Waits to see My ATS on the main bar and if this will work in the REAL real world.

Color Scheme looks great.

I like the drop down, rather than hover menu.

I LOVE IT!!!!! I love that you can choose what categories to see right there without the hassle, I know you guys are doing this for some other users that have mobile devices, etc,. I am still on a laptop, and I LOVE IT, it weeds right through anything we don't want to have to see, but still have the option if we want.

Hopefully the "Off" button will say something else, I thought "off"? and then said ahhhh off topic, I thought it was going to log me out


Keep it coming!!

Peace, NRE.

When I am on ATS, I am using an IPad 99% of the time and I can honestly say I really like it! I think my favorite part about it is the icons/little images used to navigate, and the drop down bar under the 'more' tab. How the material is layed out when I choose a topic is very neat, clean and easily readable and accessible. All around it's fresh, new, easy to use, and good on the eyes! I like it quite a bit!!

Usually change leaves me fetal balled, cuddling a bottle of whiskey... but this? This looks great! Very much a different feel - but warmer with fewer sharp edges. I'm excited!

Funny enough it looks great on my 10" tablet, but not so much on my 22" monitor.

I find the bar that follows you seems to get lost on the tablet too, sometimes appearing at the top after scrolling up or down, sometimes in the middle of the page, and sometimes it just vanishes.

That's using Opera browser 12.10 on android ics using flash player 11.1 unofficially side loaded since adobe are putting flash to bed.. But this is html5 isnt it? so a non-issue then I guess.

I think the bar issue is browser related. Different browsers I've used act differently. Dolphin/Opera the bar floats around and sticks at times. Others, it stays exactly where it's supposed to.

But the overall view from my tablet is a lot easier on the eye than the current style, and it looks like I wont have to find those little text buttons inside the larger image holders to click on links now
That's a good thing!

Please incorporate this into the user interface!

If these suggestions have not been made already, then PLEASE OH PLEASE, for the sake of members and information, incorporate this into the daily life of ATS:

  • In-Thread search feature

  • A polling option that OP's can fairly easily encode to gather information/opinions in the simple form of % (percentages)

  • In-Thread filters

    Here's a Link to a thread that I started in hopes to see some of this scripting incorporated into ATS.

    Respectfully,

    - AeonStorm -

    I think the design looks beautiful. On my PC it works very well and is quick. At the moment, my Tablet is acting up for connecting to the LAN so I can't say on it. However, you may ask the design people to have someone else with a Win based phone give it a whirl. I'm using an HTC Trophy and Internet Explorer native to it to test..

    For feedback purposes, it loads Column 1 on the Win Phone and only the first story of Column one. Part of the top line menu is visible, but not all and zooming in or out isn't possible. Clicking a top line option loads the new text over the top of the existing text as it came up. Of course, on the PC I can see how nice the effect works and looks. This is just an FYI and advanced feedback to that device, as you noted not all had been checked. Hope that helps a bit.

    The design and function outside of my annoying Win Phone is 100% better and downright modern!
