Thumbs up Admin Extra - New Community Administrator Discussion Site

Hey Guys,

So I thought I'd come and put myself in front of the firing squad

Admin Extra is not even a week old - we started development Wednesday afternoon and after feverishly working a lot from then we've managed to get to a point where we can go live. There are still a few little things that need doing - TOS posting up (all written, just need completing) a few images on the style and our logo - which we're having trouble with

I'd love to hear what you all have to say - mainly about our style and forum structure. There's not a lot of content yet as we're still working on that.

I appreciate it

oh.. linky to the forum (still working on the homepage) - Admin Extra

At the bottom of the page - in the "Community Software Discussions" - something is breaking the frame and pushing the forum sections way to the right.

Besides that, I liked the contrast of the colors, which makes the forum easy to read.

"Powered by vbulletin" - is still in the site title.

Meta description and keywords look good.

Thanks! Think we fixed the frame breaking now and you're right, we need to remove the "powered by vbulletin"

For a Webmaster forum 'powered by vbulletin' is not that bad.

Should change your url to www.adminextra.com instead of that adminextra.com
Redirect to www. via .htaccess

Why? www or http:// is interchangeable We've set it to redirect to http:// instead of www in .htaccess

Yeah, there are some strong ones for sure We're hoping to take a slightly different approach to things. I admin'd at one of those forums on and off for 6 years, so I should hope I have a good idea of what needs to be done

Well, we've made a lot of updates to the site in the last couple of weeks - and since opening we've managed to hit over 7,000 posts and have a good active memberbase (while still relatively small in the grand scheme of things).

A couple of changes I'd like comments on is our new shiny logo and our funky sidebar (yes it's funky, trust me !) if you people wouldn't mind taking some time out to check it over
