Heya! Few things I've noticed that need updating across the site and social media.

https://twitter.com/cookie_brigade - Website needs changing from cookie-brigade.com to www.cookiebrigade.org

https://www.facebook.com/CookieBrigadiers - Profile picture is being cropped, needs recropping

https://www.cookiebrigade.org/wp/wp-login.php - Login image is being cropped on both sides and links to wordpress, needs resizing and link changed to www.cookiebrigade.org

https://www.cookiebrigade.org/wp/ - in div 'top-bar-social' Google+ links to https://www.cookiebrigade.org/wp/ instead of https://plus.google.com/+CookiebrigadeOrg

Speaking of Google+, it has been unused since April 2014. I would suggest deleting it rather than having an inactive account.

All PAX's need their logos updated to the new versions across the board

PAX Prime needs renaming to PAX West across the board

Not sure why Wordpress has been installed under the /wp/ directory?

https://www.cookiebrigade.org/wp/blog/ - Has no breadcrumbs

The 404 page breadcrumbs go through blog (Cookie Brigade > Blog > 404) where it should be Cookie Brigade > 404 or have no breadcrumbs

There is no Cookies on the 404 page, I feel like you are missing out on an awesome opportunity here

More to come :)

  • Line 505 in bootstrap.min.css
Code: [Select]
.navbar .nav .dropdown-toggle .caret{margin-top:8px;} would appear more natural as
Code: [Select]
.navbar .nav .dropdown-toggle .caret{margin-top:6px;}) (forum down arrows on Profile/Messages/Members)
  • LATEST TWEETS & FLICKR PHOTOS in Forum footer don't load
  • Copyright in forum footer is 2013 not 2016
  • Social media link order in forum footer is Facebook > Twitter > G+ > Flickr, but in the header on the main site it is Twitter > Facebook > Flickr > G+. The order should be updated to make these the same, with most used first.
  • Forum footer says 'Read More' instead of 'Find out more'
  • Can the forum be embeded in a wordpress page instead of being standalone? (to keep UI consistent)
  • Because of the 10px margin on Testimonial picture on the homepage, the picture is below the text. Changing this margin to 7px lines the top of the picture with the top of the text.

Yeah the website is in pretty desperate need of some love the template we're currently on has aged very badly and some of the tools are sorely out of date. SMF is suppose to have a new version "soon" but not date on it either.

I agree with pretty much everything here, and some additional items I have on my list, right now my hope is I can burn some time over Thanksgiving and Christmas break to do a revamp/update/overhaul. We're missing a lot of content we need now given the Brigade has transformed into a full fledged organization itself and I really want to put together a more robust platform for donations that isn't just event specific.

Are you up for helping?
