Issues with new site

Might as well highjack this post
I will use this post (first post) to keep track of all problems listed and whats been sorted so far
Again, thanks to everyone whos helped spotting things so far.

"Logged" = on the job sheet
Green = Fixed
This Colour = Needs more Info
  • Username and password fields don't line up
    Logged
  • Register and reset password boxes are on seperate lines
    Logged
  • The create a new account and forgot password buttons are huge on the main site.
    Logged
  • Reviews missing details that used to be in the left-hand pane, e.g. scores, reviewer, developer, etc.
    Logged
  • Logo on forums is squashed horizontally
    Fixed
  • Full forum no longer available on mobile - forum.gamegrin.com redirects to mobile as well as forums.gamegrin.com
    Logged
  • "Fold" on "ribbon" is hard to differentiate from background, so it looks like the image is misaligned
    Logged
  • "Media" page needs work, very messy
    Logged (I think we will just remove that page for now and make a whole new system for it)
  • Gief homepage background plox!
    This is for paid adverts
  • Needs more filling up the bottom half of the site, news stories look very lonely.
    You will have to explain that one in more detail
  • "Searching" on the main site brings up an Advanced Search section before the search results are viewed.
    Logged
  • No favicon
    Fixed
  • About page needs updating
    Logged
  • Plus there are no sharing options on the posts. Facebook, G+, Twitter, RSS etc.
    Logged Whoops, its there, it seems you lot cant see it but we can will fix this ASAP
  • Quotes in comments on main page are showing below avatars resulting in a large gap
    Logged
  • Inside comments on the main page you are unable to distinguish a link from plain text unless the text is itself the url.
    Logged
  • Search bar on the main site is small
    Logged
  • Staff-List doesn't work
    Logged
  • Banners aren't on every page
    Fixed
  • Forum needs a edit, one of the section headers still reads : All Things GameOn (GO)
    Logged
  • That's what she said.
    Logged




Spotted a couple of issues already
  • Username and password fields don't line up
  • Register and reset password boxes are on seperate lines
  • Reviews missing details that used to be in the left-hand pane, e.g. scores, reviewer, developer, etc.
  • Logo on forums is squashed horizontally
  • Full forum no longer available on mobile - forum.gamegrin.com redirects to mobile as well as forums.gamegrin.com
  • "Fold" on "ribbon" is hard to differentiate from background, so it looks like the image is misaligned

When you scroll down the main page, the news stories and their snippets just look a little lost. If there was something beside them, to the right, with a collum of other news perhaps then it would look like less wasted page space.
