I'm excited to announce the release of some major new features here on Trailspace:
The most obvious and widespread change is that every page on the side is wider, to take better advantage of today's larger screens. This should make the site easier to use, with more information on every screen, less scrolling, and a nicer visual appearance.
Along with the wider layout we've redesigned the Trailspace home page to provide easy access to the most-used and current content from all across the site, including recent articles, reviews, active forum topics, and more.
Speaking of member content, a lot of you have been asking to upload and share photos of your hikes and other adventures. Well now you can upload, store, and organize photos and photo albums right from your profile, or even while composing a forum post. (Just click on the "Insert/edit image" icon in the post editor.)
Finally, the old News and Gear Guide areas of the site have been combined and rechristened "Articles." The new Articles section of the site is better-organized, with a number of new topic areas that make it easier to find fresh and relevant content from a variety of authors. You'll also find it easier to comment on articles, with comments now displayed right on every article page.
As always, if you run into any bugs, or have suggestions for changes or improvements, please post here or in the feedback forum or just send me an e-mail.
