New website layout looks smooth
One thing I miss: the 'Home' Button Although I noticed the control panel on top of the page, the home button would be nice as well.
But still: looks fine with me! Keep up the good work
Cheers! Michael

The big travellerspoint backpacker in the top left corner goes to the main page. (This is generally true on websites: the logo takes you to the homepage.)

Glad you like it

Like Sander says - the logo has more or less become a de facto home link on the net. That's not to say that everyone actually realises that. Removing it cleans up the options considerably which I believe makes overall navigation easier. In light of your comment though, I have added a home link to the navigation found at the bottom of the page. So at least there is one explicitly named link back.

Pete, where is the new message special effects that you promised us in the chatroom a couple of weeks ago? :(

Maybe the message redesign became a site redesign by accident :)

There's actually more reason than ever to be looking at the top of the page now (and it's clearer than before that something is up there), plus loading times should be shorter with less graphics. But who knows, Peter might comply

Let us know if you find any layout bugs, although I seriously hope not after all the time spent beating browsers into compliance. I have a mind to send Microsoft a bill for extra hours spent hacking the site into shape because they can't follow a simple standard like Firefox, Opera and Safari ....

Ran out of time to include it before launch :) Still going to try and include something if possible, but I don't want to make it increase load times much either.

I know there is just a simple reason for everything I don't see or don't know, this has been the case so far on TP...I should have learned by now;)
Thanks guys

Well, though what I requested was just a different colour font (red or yellow, and maybe bold, too) to catch my attention, what was on Peter's mind in the chatroom that day was way cooler. And I'm certainly looking forward to it.
