Title: Site redesign - what do you want to see
Post by: CampingPhil on August 25, 2017, 08:38:19 AM
With all the new emerging technologies like Cell Phones and Tablets, we are in the process of redesigning the website and forums here.
 
The highest priority is to make sure the new website is fully responsive so that it can be viewed and used on a desktop, tablet and cell phone. (no tapatalk needed).

What new features and sections would you like to see?

Phil

Yep adding media is a huge plus. Love the idea of a new responsive site. Mostly I just want some other members from this side of the country to chime in every once in a while. But that's a whole different can of butter

As an occasional rally moderator, an easier way to add people to the chart of the campsite #'s, # Adults, #Children, etc.  Trying to maneuver around the "code" can be difficult at times on these old eyes.  LOL

thanks!!!

I might be the minority here...but I like using tapatalk instead of the web browser.  I find keeping up with multiple forums easier through tapatalk.

I don't visit PUP that much anymore since they discontinued tapatalk support.

On the system side, Tapatalk is a constant drain and it ignores security, so we have do jump through hoops to keep it in sync. Tapatalk was popuplar before websites and forums were responsive, now that most forums auto adjust for phones, it gets hard to justify it. The other issue has to do with the fact that Tapatalk shows their own ads - they don't allow us to limit the type of ads, and we get no revenue at all from it. They keep it all. Its not like the system here makes much, but there is a monthly bandwidth charge that is getting higher and higher.

I totally understand.  I just like it as it is easier to read the couple of forums I follow.

Yes good point about responsive sites. I hate the typical forum software that makes posts hard to read in tiny font sizes on an iPad. And I already have an app for reading forums. It's called Safari.
