As I'm sure you've already noticed, the Queerios web site has had a major facelift. I hope you like it... :) In addition to the obvious layout changes and such, there are some functional changes as well:

  • On the home page and other places (not including the forums), you'll see some new boxes on the far right side of the page. One has next weekend's cast list, if it has been posted. If a cast list has not yet been posted, that box will not be displayed at all. Another box shows the last six threads that were posted to on the forums. If you're logged in and are a cast member, it'll also include threads from the private cast discussion forum.
  • There is now a unified login system for the forums, cast phone list, and cast list editing. You'll use the same login everywhere. You must be logged into the forums and be part of the 'cast member' group to view the cast phone list. Similarly to edit cast lists you must be part of the 'cast officer' group. This should work well in practice I think, and allow for more automatic control of who has access to what.
  • Tech positions have been added to the cast list. You won't see them there unless the positions have been assigned though, so if and when our tech directors use this feature you'll start seeing the tech positions listed there.
  • Just about everywhere you see a cast photo embedded, it's now grabbing a random cast photo and resizing it on the fly for wherever it's needed. If that section of the web site is talking about a certain set of pictures, it'll be a random photo from only that set of pictures. e.g. The "Year 2005" section of the Cast Photos page will show a random cast photo from 2005 (only).
  • The embedded links to ACTF galleries have been removed from the cast photo page, as they were too much of a pain to keep up with. Instead the cast photo page now features a large blurb talking about ACTF at the very top of the page.
  • Various pages that were a bit plain have been spiced up with random cast photos. Examples: Theater Info, Cast History.
  • The "Other Photos" page has been split into three pages: Convention Photos, Road Trip Photos, and Rocky Horror Show Photos.

Those are some of the highlights at least. I have some more ideas for other changes that I may get to in time, but I think this is a pretty good start. All feedback is welcome (other than "hey post some freaking pictures" which is a given). I'll also be working on a rewrite of RockyMusic.org in the near future, so my time will be split between those two sites. Keep in mind that RockyMusic.org has not been touched since (quite literally) October 1999, so it's been waiting in line to be updated for much much longer. ;)

P.S. If you think you're having Slashdot deja vu, it's definitely not because I ripped off their layout and stylesheets. Nope... definitely not.

Of course, and this wouldn't have anything to do with you having Queerios on one computer and Slashdot on the other when I was at your place on Thursday, eh, Shawn?

But I love it.

I don't know if this might have anything to do with the pretty new layout, but Mr. Shawnie, I can't open the new pm's sitting in my inbox. Maybe it's just me. I break stuff :cry:

I believe something in the forum template was just pushing the private message text way down the page, to below the menu on the left. Try it now, is hopefully fixed.

Hmm, haven't seen anything like that. First suggestion would be to check the browser preferences for accepting cookies, and make sure that the forums are able to set a cookie. Second suggestion would be to try a different browser and see what happens. If you're using IE, try Firefox, and vice versa. I did upgrade the forum software at the same time as the web site overhaul, but it was a pretty minor version upgrade and I haven't had any problems with it either at work or home (with both IE and Firefox on both Windows and Linux machines).

OK, I finally saw this to an extent on Raini's computer. I believe it's due to the multiple domains that all go the same web site: austinrocky.com/org/net and queerios.com/org/net. The forums can only set cookies for one of those domains, and if you keep accessing things through the other domains then you'd likely have gotten the behavior mentioned above. I personally always go to www.austinrocky.org, which would have been why I'd never noticed anything wrong.

I've modified the menu on the left and most other links to specifically go to http://www.austinrocky.org rather than just going with whatever domain you happened to access it with. I believe that should help. I think the old web site did this also (though for a completely different reason), which would have been why you hadn't seen something like that previously.

*deliberately offensive and horribly crude sexual pun/innuendo/admission because i'm too tired to think of anything clever right now but whitney has a hot ass, though that's not a secret at all*

I feel very, very, very, very dirty now. Thanks, Cal. I'm going to go scrub my skin off with a cheese grater and lye.

just remember to use a lube made of crush walnuts and tar for that extra deep clean feeling.

This new layout looks good and works fine as far as I can tell. FOr me,it works much, much better for me on IE than on Firefox, especially the links. In particular, the links to Stevo's videos work better on IE, but then I try always to use IE for streaming anything unless there is some reason not to (like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog used to be optimized for Firefox).

Plus it looks better on IE. I have not tried it on Opera or anything else yet.

Post-it note to self: uh, fuck...

THANK YOU for all your time and hard work!

David, running out of ideas

Interesting. Especially considering that I develop in Firefox and then just check IE later on to make sure that things still work in it. And then curse for a couple of hours as I have to explore the depths of IE's weird notions about interpreting stylesheets. Gah. :grr:
