In the ever-changing world of the web and given that every day a higher percent of visitors to BM are using their smartphone, it's important that BM keeps updated.
That's why I started redesigning some fundamental basics of the site earlier this year (such as the database, etc).
The next step in making the site "mobile friendly" is updating the "Profile display" page so that mobile users can easily view photos, swiping left/right, and also edit their profile easier.
So as of 5 minutes ago, if you try to view anyone's profile you will see a completely new style of page. To view your own (or EDIT your profile - all from the same page) go here: https://www.bikermatch.co.uk/sites/bm/myaccount/showpro...rofile.asp
I know this will take some getting used to and some of you will just refuse to accept the change. It's a problem I have with every necessary update / change I make. But please give it some time and tell me in a week or two what you think. Maybe features you'd like to see added/removed/simplified etc.
Most important features:
Now an "All-in-one" page. So whether you're viewing your own profile, someone else's, editing your profile, viewing/adding photos, events, forum posts etc.... it's all on ONE page. This massively reduces the server work but also your internet bandwidth used (important if you're paying per MB on your phone).Security - a lot of bugs in the old pages have been removed. Simple hacks that anyone could abuse with a bit of know-how to put unwanted things on their profile is now a thing of the pastPerformance - the new page is rapid once loaded, because it loads everything on one page. This makes switching between tab, edit mode, photos etc instant.Mobile friendly - viewing on a smartphone, PC, laptop, Playstation etc should now all be much better than before. This is something Google has recently been punishing us for - not being mobile-friendly enough. This drives away huge numbers of members from BM and is an important step forward for us. So - first thoughts? Do you use PC/Phone to view BM? Do you find any errors/bugs/crashing?
Please, if you find any bugs - tell me immediately! Also tell me who's profile you was viewing when you got the error
Wow really? I'm surprised. Honestly expected loads of resilience and threats to boycott BM if it wasn't returned back to it's old outdated state :-D
I am though expecting errors and bugs, but it's hard to find them. Maybe you see someone's profile doesn't load fully for example. If so - please, please let me know asap while all the code is fresh in my mind (can easily fix it).
PS: you'll like part 2 even more this week - I've fixed the search page annoyances.

That's cool Matt as that was my thoughts on it.
On profiles maybe add some color as looks bit bare or basic (everything in white).
Also (I appreciate I'm staff) I think be good to have staff profiles with some marker so that new members know who to Pm/speak with if need help. That is to say if they are reading a forum thread and would be able to see who is staff for assistance easier. Also means if a staff member posts something specific it marks them out as working in BM's overall interests. Hope that makes sense
