Updates from Monday 18th August 2008
- Photos page created for the XSC on the Gold Coast. Pictures will be added here throughout the week.
- Home page changed quite a bit to promote new events. Each event listed links to it's section on the Events Page like it did previously.
- Feature pic will be one of just two pictures from XSC. Figured it's worthwhile promoting the results of the XSC so you should get either a photo of the boys each holding their trophy or a photo of the trophies by themselves.
- Events page re-ordered and re-worded XSC and Calendar updated

More updates to come this week including more pictures to be added of the XSC on the Photos page and 3 x rider profile page update for Willis, Sammo and Bender. .

Updates from Friday 22nd August 2008
1. "Next Appearing At" event banners on the home page have been made smaller and spaced apart so they are clearly defined as separate events.

2. Photos finally added to the XSC page under Downloads > Photos. Some good ones in there. Most pictures have comments which you should get if you hold your mouse over the thumbnail image.

More updates to come next week.

Updates from Thursday 28th August 2008
Some very slight yet very time consuming changes to the home page around the Next Appearing At event bannera. Basically created a bit of black space to the right of each event, and evened up the vertical spacing as well. This involved a change of the column widths and the re-creation of the quick strip banners like Fast Facts, Guestbook, Links, etc. I'm pretty happy with the outcome so hopefully everyone else is too.

I also re-ordered the Events Menu bar on Tuesday so it was in order of next events. I didn't bother adding the change to this post since it was such a minor alteration.

And finally I've added the trophies from the XSC to Bender's, Sam's & Willis's team page.

Upcoming website changes include:
- I've got some Powercruise pics from Boxer I need to add as well including a made Bender burnout crash
- I've got some really good new Stuntskills pics I need to update as well
- I'm going to change the sponsors page. Not happy with it.
- Bender was in Rapid so that needs to go into Media.
- And I will hopefully have some more events to add as well.


Lots to do.
Ben

Updates from Friday 29th August 2008
- Some really good Stuntskills pics uplodaed submitted by Nikki. See http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... 2008.shtml

- Some awesome pics from Powercruise 12 at Eastern Creek including a massive Bender burnout crash. See http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... 2008.shtml

- Sponsors page re-done to a much simpler design. See http://www.cunningstunts.com/sponsors.shtml

- Rapid should be scanned in shortly too.


Upcoming website changes include:
- On Monday, I need to remove Powercruise 14 from Next Appearing At, create photos page, re-order Events page, edit calendar, blah, blah, blah.
- And I'm hoping this will coinside with the addition of a new event to save me a bit of time.

Updates from Wednesday 10th September 2008
A massive day of updates today. Where is the Emoticon for exhausted :)

ok, here we go...

Media page - www.cunningstunts.com/media.shtml
- Added News.com.au article from The Courier Mail
- Added Rapid - September to Media page


Page Titles changed on over 70 pages from "Cunningstunts" to "Team CUNNINGSTUNTS". This is what appears in the title bar to the top left of your browser.


Banner - some changes here to include some advertising space for sponsors. The Forums is now accessible through the banner itself. And also the text on the right changed from "WWW.CUNNINGSTUNTS.COM" to "CUNNINGSTUNTS.com". This had to be changed from text to an actual image as the font misbehaves when made smaller than 18pt font.


Home page
- Forums links relocated to underneath feature pics and replaced with "Booking Enquiry" to make bookings more obvious and accessible.
- The bookings image of the crowd is now a clickable link as well as it's section promoted to top left as mentioned above.
- Drift show next weekend promoted under Next Appearing at.
- Big Boys Toys show promoted under Next Appearing.
- TITS banner demoted and edited to say "Coming soon" as the date is TBA


Downloads Photos
Kickstart Canberra Bike Fest page - Added pic of Daryl Beattie being presented a Cunningstunts T shirt.
Large pic added to Drift Show, Eastern Creek June. http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... 2008.shtml


Events Page
Drift Show Added
Big Boys Toys show in New Zealand added
TITS demoted down the order


Increased the site's popularity in Google search results.


More updates to come tomorrow. I'm only half way down my to do list :cry:

Updates from Thursday 11th September 2008
Created Powercruise 14 photo page - http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... 2008.shtml

Linked to Bender's crash on You Tube at Powercruise 12
http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... 2008.shtml

Created a Drift photo page for the show next weekend.
http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... 2008.shtml

Pre-work done for Competition page where the winner will be announced on the 15th. A new competition will be launched as well. Very exciting :o Awesome prize this time round and super easy to enter as well.

Drafted up September's Monthly Mass Mailout and sent to Bender for review.

I'm thinking about making the Photos page dual lane. Let me know which one you like best :?:
- http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_photos.shtml
- http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... lane.shtml
- http://www.cunningstunts.com/downloads_ ... ane2.shtml



Future Changes
- I'm looking into having the banner/menu and well as a footer fixed so that the only thing that scrolls is the body of the pages. Will have to research this before going any further :read2:

- Looking at going back to the random feature pics soon as opposed to the two from the XSC.

- I might have some more Powercruise 14 pics on their way soon so I'll add these once they come through.
