Further update info

Now that the dust has settled a bit, here's a more detailed statement on what changed in the new site design.

UnrealSP.org now functions on bleeding-edge web design standards, meaning that support for older browsers has shrunk accordingly. You will need a browser that supports HTML5 as well as CSS3; personally, I recommend either Firefox 30+ or Google Chrome (or similar Webkit-based browsers) for surfing on UnrealSP.org.

Additionally, the site makes use of scripts which means that you should whitelist UnrealSP.org on script-blocking software such as Adblock Plus and NoScript. Specifically, the drop-down menus on our navigation bar as well as some other vital features depend on JavaScript/jQuery, while some resources such as our header font (Cabin at Google Fonts) and various icons (Font Awesome) are loaded in a way which may be blocked by the above mentioned software.

The site structure has changed in that the forums are now fused directly into the main site (with no data loss occuring). Any URLs using the "forums/" directory are now defunct and should be replaced. To be on the safe side, I set up a redirect which tunnels any outdated forum URL to its new counterpart, though the same is not the case for main site content, which follows entirely new rules. More details will be available on that once articles and reviews become fully available to the end user.

New Atom feeds have become available; you may choose to subscribe to a full UnrealSP.org news feed, or a summarized feed of recent site additions. Handy if you use a news reader or keep an RSS bookmarks folder in your browser!

I will be immensely busy over the course of the next week, which means that I won't be able to make much progress on finishing site features. However, tempo should pick up after, so expect the various greyed-out options to become available gradually as time goes by. For any currently unavailable content, the legacy website is still up and running until the update can be considered complete. EDIT: The legacy website now displays properly; hard-refresh it if you're experiencing trouble.

While you can counteract many problems with the site by updating your browser or disabling script blockers, you might experience some legitimate graphical glitches. Please don't hesitate to report in the feedback thread if you spot anything out of the ordinary, or simply have anything to say, whether it's criticism or praise. I'm hungry for any and all kinds of feedback!
