    Wordpress is used on a plethora of sites including many other MMO sites. This is not new. It is also not new that other sites have used parts of GameOgre over the years. Wordpress allows for many things that we have been wanting to do and is not completely finished yet. There will be tweaks and changes, but that is the basic structure. I for one am excited about it because we can build a much better site around it:).

    Wow I can't imagine what a big change to you would look like lol. The new look is a pretty big departure from past designs. What else would you like to see changed CHAC?

    The next step for the forum is VB 4 or 5. However, there are a couple of applications standing in the way of that as they have for quite some time.

    Is the CSS what is causing two items from the side bar to be displayed on the bottom of the page?

    I like it guys. I think I commented already in another thread that it seems like a more professional version. Nice job.

    Yes, I like it much better than the current one:). Little stuck on the sidebar because it can only take two items right now before it shoots them to the bottom of the page, but it will get extra work to tighen it up before we make the big jump:).

    yes

    actually on my pc with resolution 1024x768, the menu bar looks bad, the logout link is slightly out of the box, because there isn't enough space.

    Updating to VB 4 or 5, Im sorry to say, will not fix that. You can only fix that sort of thing by manually altering the CSS file, or by removing one of the links in the menu bar. And removing one of the links in the menu bar, still will not help you with resolutions of 800x600 pixels, on that kind of low resolution you may need to remove 3 maybe 4 links to give you enough space. The alternative solution is to alter the css manually, but that will mean that people on lower resolution will have to sidescroll to see the logout link.

    Ultimately it's all about shortage of space in the design. There is so much to be found on gameogre you know. ;)

    Yes, and we could add thousands of games as well with a new plugin:).

    When is a matter of figuring out the logistics of the main items that need to be done still. We might be going with two Wordpress installs but that could cause other problems. Moving the blog and the new Arcade we have planned with only add to the lack of space lol. Thus, we are figuring all of that out this week:).
