    http://trust.hexus.net/ - is this new as its not loading ? If so its probably a DNS issue for a day till its gets picked up

    Other than that - looks swish indeed...

    Well i'll start positive and say the menu system appears to be massively improved. I really like the drop downs and sections a lot. It feels a lot cleaner and more efficient. I like the login on the web site too.

    I've got some wierd issues with the quick finder taking 15 Seconds to change category but it doesn't give me a working icon which first off i thought it was broken. (this is in IE, i can't get it to work at all in FF)

    I like the category drop down too.

    About Us/About Us page and advertising pages are the same, not sure if that was deliberate or whether it was missing a new page...

    None of the Minimise/Maximise functionality works on Firefox here, On IE i've got a huge white gap below the first story, until it gets to the bottom of the news bulletin finishing. If i minimise the news bulletin the second story comes back into line and removes the white space.

    I like the new bottom quick links too and overall i'm very impressed. Just a few things to iron out in my opinion and a bit more FireFox support i hope.

    Very nice .

    Must have been a big job

    Looks slightly more organised/defined which is good when you have so much content.

    I like the news bulletin box although I have to say I'm not really too keen on the way news items open up in the forum .

    Drop down menus are good but IMHO the "reviews" dropdown could be tweaked a bit. You are only fitting five reviews on the menu which I feel is not enough considering the number of reviews Hexus does these days. Maybe if you could reduce the review title to one line in the dropdown box you could fit in more? I defo think "news archive" should be in bold. After all thats where most of your content is.

    Also I dont like the word "archive", it implies that the reviews are old when in fact some of the reviews in the "review archive" are only a week or two old. Possible "all reviews" would be better?

    Anyway nice job .

    I really like the look of it, I am sure it will be much better once things speed up

    Can't see anything wrong with it yet.

    TiG the white space, does it disappear if you slightly resize the window?

    Yes it will take time - the site is slow.

    Yes it is deliberate until they are re-done

    Weird - they work on FF here - try clearing your cache.

    We will ad more reviews to the thing - it was just a few there.

    The news archive thing can be bolded. Thanks
