New Romanarmy.com design
#1
At Rich's suggestion, a new poll on the new design of Romanarmy.com. A glimpse of the imagebase, v.2 can be seen here: [url:22h5wy58]http://www.romanarmy.nl/content/imagebase/imagebase-Show.asp[/url].

it looks pretty good. I think the green digital "/imagebase" is a little cheesy, but I'm not complaining. I think it would be nice to have 'previous' and 'next' buttons in addition to "2 3 4 5" etc. at the top. There should also be a way to jump to a specific IMB reference, at least from the search page (there isn't on the current one, at least that I know of).

As being an outsider during 2 years, I was accostumed to the former format, which seemed easier to follow.

However, as one gets used to this new format one will eventuall find it useful.

I do miss the language corrector that the former had in the REPLY PAGE, or maybe I just have not discovered as of yet.

Even myself who speaks & writes in my mother language ENGLISH, one does make mistakes specially after more that 30 years living in Spain, where one is thinking & dreaming in Spanish continually while even preparing this reply.

Hi Lucius,
You seem to be commenting on RAT v2, instead of Romanarmy.com new style, of which RAT is a part. That's ok though, I'll look into the spell checker. I think there's a mod available to add that to this board.

I love the style of the new imagebase!
The new concept is wider, too, which was my main worry over the new RA.com design.
Is there a page on which all the monuments are listed? I'm a sucker for sitemaps, will always be.

More so than the current searchpage?

@Lucius: spellchecker added! How's that for service!? Wink

Look there. Results will go to the new page.

Exactly. To search, you needed a name (and filling in 'Chesters' without knowing the unit was impossible). The browserpage is gone already. Did you ever have a page with all the tombstones listed?

To browse: click "To browse, click here". It works, I promise
To see all tombstones, select: "Show all tombstones in the imagebase" and click submit.

Dear Jasper,

Thank you for adding this little helper "Spell Check". It may seem silly for some, but even I being American Born, can make mistakes over the keyboard and this "helper" is a great tool.
