I understand you :D
But the template doesn't.

That position where the news are, is called innertop, and it's divided into 2 columns.
And the news is the second column, floated left.

I could fix it, by setting innertop to 1 column, and using additional CSS to make the 50% width for those 2 modules, but that would break the site in responsive mode (for mobiles).

The wonderful world of divs and css :D

The impression I would think you would want there would be to show off the generator and what it can create, not the general news etc... which some I might add is months or even years old, outdated and dead, which is not what you want people to think when they arrive.


Nope, greg did what you asked for. Moving the video above the news and forum feed places it at the top if you're not more specific. :)

For the record, a smaller video may be a good idea but a smaller newsfeed does belong at the top (at least for registered users). I really don't want to have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to get the info I'm looking for. The video is yesterday's news to me. :(

well, we certainly don't want to break the site.

I agree about the divs etc... sometimes more than a pain, I still try to use html and java where possible...

In any case, I do think the video is better up front. Thanks for trying this out.

You can still see the feed right after login, as registered users, my concern is/was for new people arriving at the site for the first time.

Well, au contraire. I'm not sure I understand your point but I'm just trying to say that from my perspective the video can only be watched once, and then it's a pain. I'm no webmaster, I'm just a user here and from my perspective something that gets in the way once it's been used isn't extremely useful... but that's just me... :)

About the smaller video: I assumed your idea was for the site to look this way *post* log in (or all the time for that matter).

Not sure what you meant, but yes I meant it mostly for new visitors.

Most people want to be smacked with visuals not text, but I already said all that in the opening...

The point upon arrival at a new website, is to make the visitor comfie and grab their attention, not the members, they have already been here and know what is on the inside, bla bla lol
