Massive front page changes coming
« on: December 28, 2017, 10:24:48 AM »
We are currently working on a total overhaul of RHR, We apologize for any issues with the front page at this time as it may take us a few weeks to get everything transferred over to our new templates.

The Forum will be unaffected and remain up while all updates happen.

We will post updates as they come.

Update 0.01
  • Top links offline due to security incompatibility
  • Massive giveaway prepped for our relaunch, who needs a new desktop?
  • Scroll window for new posts offline but should be fixed before new template launch

At first I was all
Quote
This is probably a bit nit-picky, but what if the search was part of the blue bar, and the trending was treated as part of the page so it would go away and not expend my vertical space. Also avoiding the blue bar flickering as it gets redrawn when using the scroll wheel.
But then I tried in another browser where I do not have social media buttons blocked and saw why it is the way it is.

The blue bar feels a little big in it's shrunk mode, but personal preference.

In IE 11 and Firefox I can scroll up and down really fast a couple times and have the banner not expand properly, but cycling it once restores it to correct dimensions. Not really an issue, just something I noticed.

Also, in IE there is a line after the first rating star in the slider and the comment count is scrunched into the comment bubble thing.

Is there a way to filter reviews? Example:
Browsing GPU reviews -> brand X fanboi/etc.
Is there going to be a way to manually skip to a certain page of reviews? The list is generated on the fly and there is no URL, so you are going to have to click next->next->next->next->next->next to go back in time. To be fair most people do not care to go that far back anyway.

Thanks for your insight I have forwarded this to our site admin and he is getting to fixing it as quickly as he can

thank you
