Welcome to the new MotoringFile.com. This new version of the site comes a little over one year since our big move to the WordPress platform and is well over a year in the planning. In fact MF 3.0 represents the biggest visual changes to the site since the summer of 2004.
With the average size screen increasing over the last few years, we felt it was time to finally move to a wider (1024px based) layout. This has allowed us to a add a third column which in turn features more of our reviews and classic content higher on the page. It also helps keep the page length down a bit.
Another big change we’ve made is the way users access each section. You can now view the category listing by clicking the “Browse by Category” link on the top left within the black navigation bar. When clicked, the category menu slides down to reveal all categories. Our hope is that this will offer users a more compelling way to tap into the four years of archives the site offers.
As always, a big thanks goes out to Matt Gifford who makes MotoringFile happen when it comes to the hardcore coding side. And of course another big thank you to DB for combing the site for bugs (or features as I call them) and cracking the coding whip on anything not up to snuff.
So please, kick the tires a bit and let us know what you think.
