New Look Forum for 2014

Better Performance for Tablets & Smartphones

It has been just over 11 months since the new HOT Forum went live – where has the time gone?

The initial design of the web site was aimed primarily at PC & laptop users and had limited ‘Responsive*’ capabilities. With sales of handheld devices – smartphones & tablets – starting to outstrip that of desktop machines it became clear that a rethink was in order.

We know from your comments in the forums that many of you view the site content on tablets and check in on smartphones when you’re on the move. Hence the introduction today of HOT TALK Mk2 using a fully Responsive layout that works well on any size of screen.

While the site is dressed in new clothes we have endeavoured to maintain the familiar elements of site navigation, media uploads and Discussion Forum creation.

Inevitably there will be teething problems. Please bear with us if these occur. Your assistance in bringing them to our attention would be greatly appreciated.

You can contact me within the site once logged in, or via my direct email:

*Responsive Web design (RWD) is a Web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors).
