Hi everyone.

I'm the web developer, and starting tonight I am running updates to the site design.

Please be patient, I'll be working as fast as humanly possible.

I'll try to keep up changes on here. If you catch an error, please let me or Cliff
know. You can either reply or PM me on here. I'll get to it ASAP

So the basic design is updated.

I have a limitation here however. I can't cross browser test since my usual testing platform is under maintenance for the second day. Cross browser testing should already be completed from before, but always good to check again.

So if anybody here uses Internet explorer (versions 8 - 11) Please check around and make sure you don't see any site breaks, anything that looks incorrect.

Below is the list of some pages that are incomplete:
Army Analyzer
Product Simulator
Dice Browser

Possibly more. I'll be continuing updates throughout today and the weekend.

Thanks for doing this work!

Looking over it in the new format, I can see some content that needs to be updated (mostly around the new starter rulebook), but that is a task for another day.

The dragonkin animated gif is a good idea, but its not aligned.
The images (scans) need to be adjusted before you compile them.
I think you used the eldarim files I scanned, as I spent time to align the images, they look good when changing colors.
It can be done... test and render.

New race page I am thinking if giving the layout an overhaul, using larger images to identify races, possibly even box art.

Each race is going to have its own page after that as well in addition to the forum topics.

That cart image is another beast... I did a lot of the photography but don't have that box. I might be able to photoshop the words on that, unless the box itself is different... I don't have access to the store itself (just the FTP) so actually updating the image is cliff's domain Very Happy

I'd forgotten that image was still online. It was a last minute fix because I couldn't find the correct image.

Don't blame the webdesigner for using MY old images.

Just like Gandalf and the Lords of the West celebrating in the Field of Cormallen after the Downfall of Barad-dur and the destruction of the Ring; I feel the exact same way -- this website redesign is a triumph! I want to praise everyone involved, thank you SFR guys for getting someone on board who did such a GREATJOB! Mr. Green

Just can't get over this change. It all looks fantastic and certainly I'm looking forward to shaking hands with your Web Developer/ Designer.

Congrats! Very Happy

Thanks Quickbeam Mr. Green

Finally got some free time to get more updates done on this.

Currently overhauling the races page. Also currently looking for a new cross browser testing platform, so if you see any breaks in internet explorer, please tell me.

FYI - the rulesbooks page should have a link to this rulebook as the place for new players to start.

also, the cafepress site blew up, probably cause we never used it.

so we should remove those links from our website or atleast update them to be real products.

Starter rules has been added to the rules page.

Cafepress images have been removed for now. The downloads page should be reviewed for content, to determine if anything should be removed/updated.
