Title: Homepages changes
Post by: Tom on May 20, 2014, 12:36:55 PM
We've decided to change the homepage up for something more fitting, so instead of octopress we'll now be using simpleportal as the community homepage. This provides greater integration and just looks significantly better in general. I'm still playing with the general block layout of the page but if you have any issues please contact me. The community can expect more changes in the coming weeks!

The old homepage can still be found at  for now and of course at github (https://github.com/moparisthebest/www.moparscape.org).  I think John is going to work on porting the old Mopar Monthly's to the new page.

Also thanks to Tom for all his hard work doing this, I set him up a test VM pretty much identical to the forum where we can test all new changes before we push them to the production forum, all I have to do now is click 'Merge pull request' and then run a 'git pull' on the server, pretty nice! :)

Clicking "forum" instead of "home"  is going to take some getting used to :/

Nice job, I can't wait for the further changes that comes to play. I don't mind the homepage whatsoever and prefer it a lot more than what it was.

what's the point of the "read more" link if it literally shows the whole posting?

Now everyone can view their post count and badges!

The best feature of all is the member list if anything.

Love this!

One suggestion, increase the number of recent posts displayed on the right?  Or otherwise occupy that awkward looking space somehow :P

the recent posts module and the second announcement are overlapping one another on my phone, so couldn't this be an issue for lower screen sizes/resolutions? or is there minimum size set in the CSS?

^ sums up my comment as well, I always have liked the basic simpleportal. It's clean with this theme as well.
