Also, added new enlarged

and introduced a new section

Let's hope so, because over the past week I have tried several times to get the site just to load and it wouldn't.

I have to say that the response times now are a multiple of what I was experiencing before this.

Hey Paul

The Vanished Ireland and enlarged Unbuilt section are excellent. Many thanks:)

This will seem like nitpicking but....one of my favourite aspects of the site is the "Buildings" section featuring old engravings. Sadly, I cannot log in every day so I used to log in and click on the "Latest Building Additions" heading and I could see the buildings in the order in which they most recently were added. This seems to have been disabled meaning that you have to select a buildings location, and then they are listed in cronological order or completion/construction/proposal. The result of this is that if I don't log on for a few days I miss a couple of the buildings. Apologies, that is a very small complaint but its just a thought.

BTW, well done on improving the site availability. I never encounter problems logging in or out any more:)

If you follow archiseek on google+, facebook, or twitter, you'll get the drawing of the day too...

Website looks really great Paul...

Rolling images are quality!

Is it possible to enable comments on rolling image articles, handy way of starting discussion? Though think I remember that caused a fair bit of trouble for you before ... :thumbup:

I enabled comments on news, reluctant to do so on building pages, as I think its spreads the discussion too thinly.

You can now comment on news via your social media logins

Also upgraded some main category pages with images like
http://archiseek.com/category/buildings ... emolished/
http://archiseek.com/category/buildings ... m/belfast/

Mainly areas that are linked to directly by other sites and/or are quite large in themselves

Hi Paul,

Been too busy elsewhere to visit but just thoughts I'd give you a thumbs up on the new look.

Couple of teething issues perhaps.

There seems to be some probs with the page code just below the banner on the tops of the pages.

Text is obscured and jumbled and the rollovers on some links like later pages aren't working in the forums - they are at the bottom of a the pages.

As for my busy-ness elsewhere - a work in progress with a colleague - still getting changed around - feel free to comment. :)
