New site Upgrade and look.

Hello Everyone,

We're proud to announce that the new site look and feel has been completed for Nissanversaforums.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 Nissanversaforums.com.

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 Nissanversaforums.com, they see a beautiful doorway, and they walk right in.

As a forum member you can choose to use the new design (which is on by default) or you can go back to the old design. We ask that you give it a chance and see if you like it. Like anything new, it will be unfamiliar at first, but we suspect that the speed difference will make you want to use this new one. If you do decide to switch back, the link is at the bottom left of each forum page, you pull down and select the theme called "NissanVersaforums_Legacy".

4) Garages will be featured on the site

You can show off your Versa, You can post pictures in your garage and share it with others.

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.

Right now there are a few issues that we are working on. Itrader needs to be updated and homepage has a broken image that we are looking into.

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 other issues you see. Post them up here and we will get them worked out.

Thanks,
-Your Nissanversaforums.com Team.

Yup, it certainly is white. I do agree, but its a lot cleaner and faster with this new design.

Other then the white, what else do you think about it so far?

Like I said I need to get used to it but initially it seems no faster and honestly it seems more of a mess then before. I'll write a followup in a week or so when I am more use to it.

I think it just needs a little getting use to like anything new.

Very white. Everything is zoomed in huge and shifted to the left. By chance do you have a speed test before and after the change?

Before the new skin the page would load in about 4-5 seconds.

Now its knocking on the 1 second mark.

Also be sure to remember you can turn off the right sidebar....

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.

Garage images should be working... let me give something a kick.
