Well, it has probably been about six or seven years since I last updated the site's overall layout.  I had been working on another update for a while, but finally buckled down and got it down over the last week.  Over the next month or two, time allowing, I will be fully integrating the new layout.  The movie reviews should be good to go.  Please let me know if you find anything weird.

Along with this, I am working on testing new layout templates for the forum.  The change should be a minor one, as I'm not changing the software that runs the forum, just the theme that displays that content.  The goal is something less graphics intensive, because this one has about fifty little images.  Some other templates cut that in half and are more compact code.

I noticed the orange tint recently to the left hand side and the newest layout looks good. By the way I haven't had the chance to mention how good the three reviews you usually have on the front page look. The choices have been interesting.

Great new look to the site! This is always one of my first and most favored stops during my daily surf. Keep up the good work. Hope all is well on your end.

I love the new layout Andrew.  The main page looks fantastic as do the reviews.

Good job! Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup

Thanks all, I was hoping that the greenish tinge would "feel" more like home.  I have updated the forum's theme too, and definitely need some feedback on that.  I'm worried that the text might be a little on the small side.  I can fix that in the configuration if most of us feel the same way.

Actually, I went in and bumped some of the text sizes.

love the green - just like the old days. The only thing is I was just getting used to the icons, i usually sort my messages by "show unread since last visit" and i like to first open the ones i've posted on. The icons showing this are different so it's going to take time to get used to

other than that - like it very much  TeddyR

For me, everything is smaller and shoved to the left, with a full quarter of the right side devoted to links and advertisements under a column "Ads by Google".

I agree about the text size.
It does seem a little on the small side and the font is so-so.
I'm talking about the text around our avatars.
The text that we see here in the threads looks to be the same as we've been using.

I'm also glad to see those ugly red and yellow buttons go.  I won't miss them.

Other than that...looks good!   Smile

Kinda gets rid of the simple charm of the layout, but I could definitely get used to it! Very easy on the eyes if a bit overwhelming at first. BounceGiggle The new "new posts" buttons are clever! But whats up with orange for random acts of violence in the reviews?

I'm trying to come up with a better color than that.  Unfortunately, red doesn't look right on the green.  That is going to take some playing with.

For me, everything is smaller and shoved to the left, with a full quarter of the right side devoted to links and advertisements under a column "Ads by Google". 

That's the bracketing in with the overall two-column design.  As Susan noted, if you are browsing at 800 by 600, the design does shove the ads off the page before content (and that was intentional).

Overall I really like the new look, but I'm having trouble getting used to the forums.  I feel like I have to lean to the left to view everything.
