I'm not as much into the weeds of the site as mdneilson is, but I've been helping out a bit and I thought I'd reassure you all know that the main site is coming along. The design is similar to the forum. It'll have all the cool things you expect from a well made fan site: news, original news (aka: blog), team history, recruit info, alumni info, etc.

So, I beg your patience. If all goes as planned, you'll soon be rewarded with the best fan site in all of college hockey!

Thanks for the pitch TEO, and thank you more for the help. It has been a long journey, and a lot of learning, but (as TEO said) the main site is very close to launching! Thank you all for your patience, and for your participation in the community.

Is there a mobile version I'm just not finding the button for?

You're not missing anything. There is no mobile theme for the forum. Yet. It is on my list, but the main site is my primary focus atm.

The forums can be accessed via mobile app. Search for Tapatalk in your app store. A mobile web version is in the works, but won't likely be installed until the summer.

See that? Up there ^^^^ at the top. That's right. The time is near. Very near. Hopefully, I can finish with work very early tomorrow and squeeze some dev time in before the game. With a little luck, and some desperate work, the front page will be up before the puck drops!

Awesome. BTW, is it just me or do you have the News and Blog pages reversed? I would think the RSS content goes in News and original content belongs in Blog. Was that the plan?

It should be that way. I didn't get a chance to tinker with the site before the game. Thanks for the heads up.

Things have finally slowed down from the holidays for me at work, so I'll be getting back to hammering away at the site late this week (I'm front-loading all my contracts). I don't expect any downtime, but things happen. There won't be many visual updates. I'll be, finally, adding the logo to the site, and fixing the issue where images overlap other articles on the front page and other locations. If there are issues that you see that need fixing, or tips to make the site look or run better, let me know and I'll add it to my list.
