CMPS, nice

a my active posts option would be great, a link that pulls up all the threads you posted in in the last 30 days is a great tool. Let me know if you need the code for it.

Is there a way to show the most recent thread titles in an expanded format? It looks like it's cutting them off at the 20th character, and adding the "..." A longer title would be nice.

I think if you needed more width in the center panel (to expand thread names) I would sacrifice the right had pane all together.

I like that in the recent posts my recent posts are also listed...it keeps me from forgetting that I already looked at that one!

Good work on this.

"Forum Rules" from the new homepage is broke... the link is missing the "/forums/" in there....

instead of
http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/misc.php?do=cfrules

Just seems to be from the homepage, though.

I have this problem too. At 1024x768 the center panel is mostly useless for thread names.

Lucky for me, I can tweak it on my user cp, so it goes away once I log in.

Here's my precut: http://m0t.org/diyc.png

The link for chat from the front page is bad.

Maybe it is just me, but it seems like if I go to the home page and am already logged in, it logs me out. Anybody else seeing this?

When you initially log in do you place a check in the box next to "Remember Me"? If not you will see this behavior. If you do then you should not have this issue.

I have a thought for you on the new, and old, home page. As music is a very important part of the DIYC experience may I suggest a "Radio Transmitter" section? Yes, we have: Grinch, DMX, Firegod, REN, and more but what about the music that goes with those lovely blinkers? I have been searching various other www sites for: how to, kits, and mods, on what is best for me to do: buy a kit, mod a Belkin, start from scratch... Why not make this a one stop shop for all the information on the total experience? I already love the site and have gained a ton of information! I am positive may others fell the same way about what a great community site this is. I would suggest we help each other out with the sound side now.
Just a thought. Keep up the "great" work.
Sparkey.
