Fstoppers.com Now Has A New Look

Welcome to the new Fstoppers.com. We still are working out a few glitches here and there but almost everything is working perfectly now. We put a lot of thought into the new update and we decided to keep the layout the exact same and simply add some helpful features. The update was done by the incredibly talented team at Novum Studios.

The Layout
We didn't want to change the way that you use Fstoppers.com so we left the layout of the exact same. You can still easily watch videos all from the home page and we didn't move any buttons around. We did change the colors and the fonts but the website should still "feel" the same to all of you long time users.

Top Posts
We know that many of our readers visit Fstoppers multiple times a day and watch every video we post. Others may only come a couple times a month and they only have time to watch 1 or 2 videos a week. For these readers we created 4 links at the top of our home page to the most popular videos on our site. If you are looking for the best videos on our site, now you can easily find them.

Now it is up to you to help rate the videos that we post. If you hate it, give it a 1 star, if you love it give it 5 (or anything in between). These ratings will help others decide whether or not it is worth their time to watch. Your ratings will also help us learn which posts you like and which you don't. Please try your best to rate every video you watch so that our ratings are accurate.

The new comment system is probably our biggest upgrade. Now you can either create an account with Disqus or you can simply comment using your Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo, or Open ID account. It is now possible to easily "like" other comments and respond to them. You can also easily add media to your comments like pictures and videos.

Over the next few years we are going to have a massive library of helpful BTSVs. We wanted there to be an easier way for you to find all of these videos and so Patrick and I went back through every single post and put them into very specific categories. You will notice that on our right sidebar you can easily click on the most popular categories, or click to "expand" the list and see them all.

Who Did It
If you need any web/design work done I honestly cannot recommended Novum Studios enough. We get people all the time who claim to know exactly what they are doing but when it comes time to produce quality work, they can't. Case Sandberg and his team at Novum not only did an incredible job, they did it in about 7 days. For the next month they are giving 20% off to all FS readers so give them some business.

Tell Us What You Think
We put a lot of thought into updating Fstoppers so that it is easier to navigate for new readers and still very familiar for our long time readers. Please help us work the bugs out by telling us what you think in the comments below. If you see any glitches please let us know and we will try to fix them ASAP.

That's great, Patrick. I'll stop harpin' on you now :) They get a good score from me, I really do like the new look.

Oh ya its fixed!!
thank you for fixing it so quickly!
greatly appreciated!!

I don't like being redirected to a comments page with the video on top. The old system of drop down comment box on the same page was much more efficient and far less annoying. Thanks!

FYI your Favicon problem is in the code.

I can watch it change from the FS favicon to the Wordpress favicon when the page loads.
You're favicons are fighting each other... you have 2 listed in the code.

2 may enter only 1 may leave.

The one that needs to be removed is on line 90 right after this END Quantcast-Quantifier -->

Am I really the only one having problems with new videos not updating?

I'm still seeing old videos where there should be a new one. The new text is there, but with an older embedded video.

have not seen that one before, I will look into it. Try deleting all cookies and history and see if they load up correctly. It must be an isolated case because if this happened all the time I wouldn't be hearing the end of it :)

Thanks for the answer Patrick,

I do empty my cookies & history from time to time and of course it works the first time, but after that it goes back the way it was.

I guess it's my habit of keeping about 35 tabs always open and have Firefox remember and load them every time it starts.

I'm doing a complete re-install soon and switch to FF4, so I'll have to see if the problem persists.

This may sound crazy but I once had stuff like that happening to me and it was because the date on my clock on Windows was wrong.

Hey Lee,

That's checked, it's on the right time :)

I think it's more because I don't "visit" your site every day, it's always open in a tab on FF.

I'm sure there wouldn't be a problem if I were to open a new tab and load Fstoppers every day, but that's not how i roll :D

Let's see if FF4 and a clean re-install will do the job.
