I wasn't sure if or when this would happen before the redesign, but I spent the last week analyzing the new forum's "look and feel" and found a solution that allowed me to apply it to the older, non-form BeerAdvocate pages. It took quite a bit of hacking, but I got it to work. What does this mean? It just got a hell of a lot easier to navigate the site. The site's pages are once again integrated. Mostly from a visual point of view, but definitely functional here and there too. Simplified, new navigation with sub-navigation too. Forum-style sidebars. Most recent public threads displayed on the homepage again; Beer Trading forums are excluded; doesn't take you to the last unread post. Quick links to your Beers & Places; sidebar, next to your avatar when logged in. Number of Inbox and Alert items now appear when not in the forum; if any. No more multiple browser tabs/windows when going between the old site pages and new forum. Cleaned up Beer and Place profile page layouts. Added recent tweets; if applicable. Known Issues User, Inbox and Alerts navigation items work, but have limited functionality when not in the forum. Sign up, Log In, Log Out items work, but have limited functionality when not in the forum. Some visual elements need tweaking / cleaning up; forms, padding, bullets, colors, etc. Homepage needs more content. Twitter widget isn't compatible with all browsers/operating systems. Other misc tweaks that would help me sleep at night. In the Works Your Events page; list of upcoming and past events. I'll be looking into the known issues. Any of the other remaining interim updates. Note: This is not the site redesign. This is an interim update. We'll be holding off on making any other major updates and adding any new functionality until the redesign. We know this update has taken a long time to happen and it's been frustrating using the site, so thanks again for your patience and support. I need a beer ... Cheers!
