DDN is now responsive / mobile-friendly

OK, this has been a long time coming, but I finally pulled the switch and changed to the mobile-friendly version of DDN. I'm still working out the kinks, but here are some helpful hints until all is done: - You can login via the home page - The tabs are gone until I figure out how to make it look good with the menu system. For now, you can click on the tabbed areas by going to the home page. Things To Do: - Add back a way to view your profile easily, read PMs, etc. - More cosmetic changes to make the site easier to use So now that we crossed the big hurdle, it should be much easier to make changes. Please let me know what's broken or a new feature we should add. My goal is to make this site very fast and easy to use on any device, and make it fun, informative, and a great place to hang out. And hopefully I get to interact more, now, too. :) Thanks for the veterans who still come to help and share your love of dance! Linh

How exciting, Linh! Thanks for all your hard work!

The layout on the desktop is a little funky with the change, mainly regarding the text margins. Is there a way to adjust the side margins on desktop viewing to match the body with the top and bottom margins of the page? See attached.

Agree with Sjerose: Margins on desktops are a bit off so text is off screen.

Finding that none of the tabs above seem to be working at the moment except for the hot! one. The Highland one did work last night.

Was unable to find 'login' on home page. Not sure really what the home page is so maybe looking in the wrong place? I was already logged in obviously! but trying to find my way around the new interface.

Thanks for all the hard work!

Huh....seems the tabs are working from inside the posts, just not from the "All Active Topics" page.

Though I have to say my internet has been slllloooooowwww today because of the heat we're having here and I thought it had broken the site :)

Same here, Hummingbird! I thought the site was down. The "scary place" appears to be down, so I thought perhaps there was a connection somewhere.

How can I read my PMs? When I manage to get onto my user profile, I don't see anywhere to click to read my PMs. I suppose it's going to take a while to get used to the new layout.

I couldn't find the button to view pm's but I did find you can access them if you click the 'send a pm' button. When you get to that page you'll see the option to read your pm's under the message box. At least that way you can actually read them.

Why are is it that when I zoom into my own images on my profile, they are all scrambled up but when I zoom back out again, they are back to normal?

Any update to this thread?

I'm not able to access any forums on the grey header bar.

I can't find my profile page unless I find a post that I commented on and click on my user name.

Thanks!

Okay, so the tabs are working for me now, but in the past I could click the main tab itself to get an overview over ALL boards that are under this tab.
This still doesn't work yet.
I liked it a lot, because I always looked into ALL balletboards at once this way and also ALL general boards at once. Without having to click from board to board under these categories.

When I'm on a forum, I'm not liking having to click the back button to get out of the forum and be able to get the drop down menu of another forum to get onto that forum. What's causing this to happen?

I can see posts from the "Ask a Studio Owner" section, but I thought that was one of the protected sections of the site? I'm not a Studio Owner. Someone correct me if I'm thinking of a different subforum?

The "Ask a Studio Owner" board is not a private board. All of the other boards from the Owners section (studio owners general, studio owners photos, studio owners marketing) are private.

Would someone please tell me how we will know if we get a new PM?

Ask a studio owner was never a private board, it was only ever the other SO forums that were private.

You still get emails about having a pm.

oh, the previous look is back!
Might not be mobile-friendly but seriously, I like it waaahaaay better. The other look appeared chaotic somehow? It was so difficult to see right away what was important and what not.

I do appreciate the effort, and I hope that the feedback on this latest go of it helps the next time it gets pushed to into production. :) It looks really promising Linh and I can't wait to see it when more of the kinks have been smoothed out! It's got to be a tough balance to manage on the back end. I'm always happy to help UAT at any time.
