    Howdy CEans! We're super excited to roll out the all new CrazyEngineers (CE) to all of you. This roll-out is one of the biggest changes in the history of CE; because as you've noticed - we've adopted a new logo along with a brand new, flat design comprising mostly of red/black and white colors. We've put in a lot of efforts in the past few days to ensure that everything works fine; but as always - we'll rely on your feedback to help us discover and fix any broken pieces.

    Our New Logo

    Getting Used To The New CE

    The new CrazyEngineers has several changes and features. Some of the most exciting ones are as follows-
    • The navigation bar has been shifted adjacent to the logo, saving space.
    • The navigation bar is now sticky; so that you always have quick access to the menu and all your alerts.
    • The sidebar is now collapsible. If you want bigger real estate, without any distractions; simply collapse it. Well, have you already discovered how to do that? If not, just ask below!
    • Better Mobile Design: Reading experience on mobile phones and tablets is awesome!
    We now have a wider layout which has been tested to work on most laptops and desktops.

    Take your time to make yourself familiar with the new design and feel free to ask questions if you have any.

    PS: We've organised a giveaway too! Keep an eye on the announcements section!

      Love the way how you freeze the top tabs, which move to the right (Probably making a place for the awesome CE logo) when we scroll to the top.

      Audentio design guys have provided a new layout and the JavaScript wizardry (collapsible sidebar, static menu etc.). The color scheme and several tweaks are all ours :)

      Anyone used 'Open Quick Navigation' and 'Toggle Sidebar' (right most icon in Home -- Community -- CE Headquarter -- Announcement bar)?

      The features is just awesome and works so gracefully.

      I must say, a pretty intriguing interface. Been browsing all around CE to get a grip on the new look. The way profiles with no avatar look is very pretty.

      Great work!

      Not sure what you're really asking. Those tweaks are 100% for the specific theme we're running. We don't 'own' the code and do not have the rights to redistribute it.

      ^oh yes, I thought you are running an extra CSS layer over it. My bad.

      anyway, I would say you guys have done a good job :)

      Hi @Kaustubh Katdare: Could you please check the following:

      1. Fonts on the Community Thread Lists - especially the dates. I think it'd look much better if it were bolder. Looks a bit 'skimmed' of the color.

      2. The fieldset.breadcrumb just displays the Home tab on the Home page. And displays both Home and Community links on the Community page. A big weird.

      3. Does the font on the Thread have to be this big? I liked the older size, was better.

      -Overall:

      Good change. Will get time to get adjusted to. And I'd have liked it better if the CE Logo (just logo) was 'red' in color.

      I think you mean 'darker'. Will experiment with this. @Ankita Katdare - can you try for a darker shade?

      That's how it's meant to be. When you're on Index page, you're shown 'Home'. But when you are on community page; you're on Home -> Community.

      I guess we tried to balance it out for various display sizes. We'll try a point smaller.

      The logo can be of any color and we'll do experiments with it; a la Google Doodle. :)

      @Anoop Mathew - We've fixed the color the second row text in the discussion list. Looks much better now, I guess.
