Redesigned MotorScooterGuide.net

Post by Dan Durston » Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:15 pm

Hey Scooterists,

I've been working on updating the main MotorScooterGuide.net website to something more modern (i.e. mobile friendly). I just launched the redesigned webpage this evening, so if you have the chance, let me know what you think and if you have any requests/suggestions.

Main advantages of the new site are:
- looks better (I hope)
- mobile friendly
- fixed a ton of old busted links
- got larger, higher quality photos for the review pages
- you can use the menu even if scrolled way down the page

I still need to add some features to it, such as links to the forum and downloads pages in the top banner.

Cheers,
Dan

missing a quick link to the forums page from main page found it on individual scooter pages but one on the main page would be useful.

Thanks Tiny!

Yeah I want to add some key links to that black stripe across the top (forums, downloads, articles) like it was before.

The challenge is that it needs to work, even if the window is narrow (like on a mobile phone) and I'm pretty over my head on doing that (all the other adjustable width stuff is from the template). I should be able to figure it out, but it might take me another 1-3 weeks.

Well it's been a month, but I finally got links to the forum and other stuff back on the homepage. It was a lot more work than expected, because the new website is mobile friendly so on small screens everything has to re-arrange correctly:
