Hello Everyone,

We're proud to announce that the new site look and feel has been completed for SRT10Forums.com! Our designers and software engineers have been hard at work on this for several months. It's designed to modernize the site, make it easier to use, and to make it more attractive to new members and guests that visit .

The forum software we use, vBulletin, by default is not designed to be friendly to the eyes or to look modern. We went down to the nuts and bolts of the forum software and templates, and have done a ground up approach. There are several things you will notice now that the new design is live.

1) The site should be significantly faster.

We have applied every modern technique to speed up page load and tested with all modern browsers. We want the forum to be extremely fast and easy to use.

2) The site will work much better in mobile and tablet views

We've started applying responsive design, and have designed and tested against android and iPhone devices, Android tablets, and iPads. If you are sitting at your desk or on your couch, or just on your phone, the site will work much better than it did before, and load fast. We are still working on improving the experience even further in the months to come, but we wanted to launch this as quickly as we could.

3) The homepage is bright, crisp and clean.

We wanted the first page users saw to look beautiful, so that when a new guest arrives and is debating whether to join SRT10Forums.com, they see a beautiful doorway, and they walk right in.

4) Garages will be featured on the site

You can show off your Hyundai, You can post pictures in your garage and share it with others. Make sure you post up some images to share with the community at the link below.

http://www.srt10forum.com/forums/garage.php?do=editgarage

5) Users will be able to register with Facebook, Twitter or Google+

6) The side bar can be hidden in your user options.

Click on my profile / user cp at the top right.

- click on edit your details on the left.
- Look for Show Sidebar on Forum Pages under Additional Information.
- Click disable and save.

7) Another new great feature is the @Mention user plugin. You can tag members by simply using the @ symbol.

8) Drag and Drop image uploader

We hope you enjoy it, and if you have any questions on the design, please let us know, feedback is appreciated.

If there are any issues you see. Post them up here and we will get them worked out.

Thanks,
-Your SRT10Forums.com Team.

love the new look. My trucks still in purgatory, waiting to be put back together,
so I haven't been here in a while.
Thanks for checking in, spread the word we got a new look.

Let me know if you guys ever have any questions or need anything, just @mention me.

I thought I was at the wrong site! Love the new interface but miss the old banner. I liked it when the words "SRT10 Forum" were in the similar typeface as the real SRT badges.

I think this is a new "Mopar" branding thing since we are trying to bring them on board as flagship sponsors.

I have a favor to ask...

I haven't been a Super/Site Moderator for some time now. Could you please update my title and remove the "Super Moderator". I still have people ask me for help and I no longer have the tools to help them. The most common question I get asked is help with revolving charges for the 1 year subscriptions that the member can't turn off.

Thank You Sir
Jeff

10-4, done.

Do we need to add any mods/Smods?

ViperDad is our only Mod. His job requires a lot of his time. It might be good to touch bases with him and find out what he see's and if he needs help. I've helped a number of times over the years when needed.

SpudRacer is out of country doing humanitarian work as a Doc
da1chief has not been here for some time (couple of years), Navy keeps him busy
brat retired when he sold his SRT-10

Hope that helps

Thanks for the info,

Let see if traffic picks up from the conversion and new search analytics that should drive people here from Google and see if it is needed.

The production seems to have increased in the short time the site has been updated, however I don't see a need for a second mod yet.
