Looking good... I had a toot round the other two sites which PTV have already launched and Latics is pretty much the same... hopefully it will provide a much more user friendly site, as the old one was a bit messy in places... only time will tell I guess.

They are going to be using that photo in the new "Spot The Ball" competition Ackey.

Bet I'll be banned from entering. :cry:

 

I can't believe that you can still go into the Tickets section and not find the number for the ticket office. Sort it out Stu. Generally it's a lot better though.

Nah, what a load of crap. Too much stuff going on! Some of the things don't seem to work (such as 'classic games'). I can't fathom out what the hell is happening. Dont't fix it if it ain't broke I say. Bloody progress :angry:, I don't know!?

Premium TV client websites have got a knack of overloading their visitors with buttons, links and gadgets. It's a brave effort that goes too far. I'm not sure where to go to get to what I want.

 

But I'm sure he's all over it, and there's still plenty of room for tweaking the bits and pieces.

 

My heart goes out to him - it ain't easy launching a large multimedia website like that.

I suggest if that if you find any bugs in the code while your browsing around it, drop him an email - I think Ackeys done a few for him already - it's good to get reports from the users.

Well said. I'm all for progress really but the old website was easy to understand and worked fine so again, why change it. What is with all the official partner bit (casino / poker / spread bet / auctions). What does that have to do with Oldham Athletic. Also, the fact that it only fits on the computer screen if you have a 40inch screen takes the mick really. I'm sure we'll all get used to it but what a ball ache! Anyone agree?

Thats the way the club make money from the site... if you use one of those things by linking to it from the Latics page then they get a cut.

I hadn't thought of that, as I have a stupidly large screen, but yeh that is a HUGE error to make! But to be fair to Latics and Stu that is again the fault of PTV who create the 'template' design.

Initial thoughts are that I quite like it and a big improvement on the old site, may take a little while to get used to the new layout etc, and navgation through the site to find what your looking for, but generally very good.

I like it, obviously because the site mapping is so huge it will take a while to get everything up and working. Might take a while to learn my way around it properly but when you get used to it, it'll be fine!

Great job so far! Clean, crisp and sharp images, especially like the one of Mark Allott trying and failing to tackle Wellens. :grin: Drop-down menus are clean, but there are a few areas where long lines of text are overunning the box boundary. Maybe this is a Firefox issue.

 

Nice site, plenty going on. I've got a nifty "zoom image" function on my Firefox extensions which allows me to use the centre wheel to enlarge images within their boundaries. Always useful for that (ahem) closer look! :blink:

Is this a resolution issue, I have a 17" flatscreen and it fits on width wise quite nicely.
