As you can see, Vintage Radio has just received its second major redesign since the site's beginnings in 2003. To see screenshots of the old designs, please visit the 'About' page.

The first major change you should notice, apart from the new design, is that members can now comment on the topics I discuss on the front page. This function does not replace the forums that existed on the older site, but will compliment them as an added feature for members, and perhaps encourage more members.

On the subject of the forums: they are not live at the moment as the forum pages will require a bit of a re-work over the next week or so to make them suitable for this site. I do apologise for the delay though you'll appreciate the effort that I will go to to ensure that the security of your member accounts and the site's look and feel won't suffer as a result of a rushed job.

This new site brings a slight change to navigation - a change for the better I think most will agree. Things like restoration/repair articles that were fairly scattered on the old site are now grouped together in one section. Many of the pages offering advice or warnings are now accessed from links in the right column under a heading called 'Tutorials'.

Things that will change over the next month or so will be the service directory; Currently only I have been able to add details to this but soon members will be able to add their own details and make their own changes as the need arises. This means I will have less work to do and you can be sure that the most relevant details will apply to your submission at all times - easier for everyone. The other is that over the next few days I will enable a function that will allow members to obtain their member password automatically rather than needing to open a new account with a different name.

Before I sign off on this thread I will announce that I am actively seeking link exchanges with other websites relating to vintage radio and/or similar subjects like grammophones and maybe even early television sites. The deal would simply be a swap of site-wide crawlable links. If you are interested please set up a site-wide link to http://wireless.iserv.com.au/ on your site then email me with your link URL and I will reciprocate. Please note that this is only for relevant websites. If you would like a site-wide link to any other type of website there will be a small fee for this.

I hope you all enjoy the fresh new look of Vintage Radio.

PS: Some broken links are expected on the new site for a few days as everything gets installed and checked.

Site registration is re-opened.
