Hey guys --

Coming up shortly, you may notice some changes being applied to the overall website layout.
This may include changes to the menu/navigation bar, and in general thematic changes as well as mobile support bit by bit.
It won't all happen at once, as to make the transition gradual (and the work easier on us admins).

If you have any questions about the changes please feel free to leave a message in this thread. If you find that something you normally use is now missing, please include as many relevant details as possible and we can either help you find it again or explain why it was removed. This mostly applies to the navigation, as many pages are being consolidated or moved to the Wiki.

Thanks,
--Lorentz

When you mention general thematic changes, are you referring to how for themes like Super Mega Goron how the site's theme is Midnight Revival - to where you'd be making it where the site had the theming of Super Mega Goron. Or were you referring to new themes being brought to ZFGC that are going to be released in additional to your website user-interface changes?

Either way, best of luck with the stuff and thank-you for your work on this.

Thanks for the reply!

When I mention general thematic changes, I am not necessarily referring to adding new themes, but instead bolster the existing themes to use a responsive layout. This way, ZFGC will look good and function well regardless of what device you're viewing it on. In its current state, the site themes shrink down really small on mobile phones and you have to use zoom to actually do or read anything (unless you got super good eyesight).

Perhaps after this phase is done, we can look into adding new themes. Our first strategy on the roadmap is to migrate resource and project-related content from the CMS into the wiki. This is why the navigation is being changed and will be organized better.
The next strategy involves eventually replacing the CMS with a more flexible, social platform that journalists like Mirby could use to showcase cool projects and other news.

By the way, thank you for your kind words.
