We've just completed a fairly major change to the site's design. Gone are the rounded corners and tabs at the top. The new order is square, simple and lighter. Loading times should be slightly improved as far less images need to be loaded.

We've also restructured the site's main navigation. We removed Travel Help, Reunions and Links. These were relatively rarely clicked on compared to the main features and ended up just cluttering the menu unnecessarily. You can still find those pages under the Tools section (which itself has also been restructured significantly). The 'Product' links that we had there are also gone.

You will see a new navigation area at the bottom of each page. That's where you will now find the products links. We included the Reunions, Travel Help and Links down there as well.

Let me know what you all think and if you find any bugs, please let me know asap :)

I like it - the new design is definitely neater, and nicer to look at.
Haven't found any bugs yet but will let you know if I do!

What's 'My watchlist' in the destinations section? Is that something that is new today aswell?

Nope, it was already in existence, but not linked to nearly as prominently. You can add any page in the destinations guide to your watchlist - there's a link to do that at the bottom of each article. Once you've done that, the watchlist will show you whether any of those pages have recently been edited.

At first glance, the redesign is really nice. More soothing on the eye, bigger fonts, navigation looks to be simpler too. Good stuff, Peter!

OOh - I like what you've done to the place! Everything's so easy to find and navigate. I'll have to snoop around to see what else has had a makeover...

What's wrong with round?

Just kidding around, looks nice.

We removed ... Reunions ...

Ironic, given the original intention of the site.

Yeah, it's quite a change from the early days of this site! To see just how far we've come, have a look at The Original Travellerspoint from September 2002
