New look for BUZZ!

For the past few weeks we've been working on some updates for BUZZ and in the next day or so you will see a new look for the site - a long overdue face lift.

The left column (for those using the full browser version) is being replaced with drop down menus from the upper bar and there will be a new right side column (similar to the home page) with a recent posts feed, new photos and a few other features. After this is set up and running smoothly we can add options for members to configure their viewing preferences to hide some parts of the site if desired.

There will be a lighter general appearance and with this change we should see faster page loads and more flexibility to add new features.

No topic areas are being changed and the posting interface should remain the same. The mobile view will still be available as well.

Here's a sneak peak

Moving forward we will again be asking folks to submit images to use in the site header - joining the few that are already in the rotation. If you have any you think would be likely candidates, please let us know. They need to be at least 1200 pixels wide and would be cropped sort of like this:

The attachment states 150-200 pix minimum height. What is the desired height?

Thanks

Higher is fine but the pic would be cropped to pull out a section that is about 1200 wide by 200 tall. Only that portion would display. Interesting challenge

Will we be able to "like" or "thank" posts? That would be a welcome addition IMO.

Thanks!

Great idea, we'll setup a Thanks button in the near future.
