New Year, New TGTAP

By Chris | 1st Jan 2012 at 22:04 GMT in General | 8 Comments

Happy new year everyone! If you're reading this on the main site you'll notice things have changed a bit. This updated layout is just one of a number of changes we have planned for The GTA Place in 2012, and we hope you'll like the changes we've made so far.

The first new feature I'd like to point out is the new live search at the top right hand corner of every page, this offers quick and easy access to all our content (which we are in the process of making even better), with search results appearing as you type.

Perhaps more obvious is the fact we've moved the navigation to the right hand side, and also made it much bigger, while still allowing ample space for content as well as giving us the opportunity to highlight new and interesting content through features which we will be regularly updating.

A number of improvements have also been made to the backend code which should mean pages load slightly faster for you. As with all site updates, there may be a few bugs here and there that need to be ironed out. If you see any, do let us know in the comments and we'll get them fixed ASAP.

As stated last week, this is just the first of the changes we have planned. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks including the launch of our mobile website and v2.0 of our downloads database!

Thanks Evo, fixed all those things now.

Yeah the live search doesn't include news stories at the moment. Not sure where to include them in the results.

Jimmy, I didn't actually. Did you PM or email? I haven't received anything from you.

Happy New Year guys! I may make a return but I keep saying that, so who knows. GTA V being around the corner is a perfect opportunity to get TGTAP back to what it was in terms of activity. :awesome:

Nice changes thus far ^^
