We have been working on the next version of the TUG review pages (tug2.com) and member only section and are close to finishing it up!

Here is a link to a page that displays the new format and we would like feedback/comments or any errors/issues you encounter when browsing this on your various devices such as phones and tablets and different web browsers!

Hope you all enjoy the new look, things have come a long way since 1993!

My initial glance showed one error right off the bat: The Tug logo in the upper left of the computer screen is cut off at the bottom. I'm running Safari Version 13.1 (15609.1.20.111.8) on a MacBook Pro running MAC OS Catalina version 10.15.4.

I'll go look a bit deeper.

In the drop down for Help & Advice, every word is capitalized except the words "help and" on the first line. To maintain continuity, these should probably be capitalized too. It's the same thing under the Timeshare Marketplace tab, everything is capitalized except for "Permanent swap" and "How to place an ad."

When you click the Contact Us drop down, the text is off the left side of the screen.

In Chrome Version 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit) it looks fine, except for the spelling things mentioned above. The Contact Us drop down text is still off the left edge of the screen.

In Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) it looks just as it does in Chrome.

The new site looks good. I like the refresh. If you want some help with the css, here's a couple of things:

The address isn't showing up quite right because it's not a link (a tag). So it doesn't have the padding:

Notice how there is just padding for a tags?

1589939164210.png


Lots of ways to fix. Easiest would be to make it a link and maybe direct to a contact us page?

The contact us dropdown doesn't seem to be working, I don't think you need the right:0, if you turn it off in chrome, it displays ok.

However, the best fix is probably to use "navbar" rather than navbar-right.

You have:
HTML:
<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-right">
I would do:
HTML:
<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar">
Happy to look at anything else if you need it.

...and all the while, I thought @TUGBrian was going to say all pages are now sanitized after each viewing for our safety!

Now on a more serious note, @TUGBrian is it correct to assume this revision is geared primarily toward making better use of space on phones and portable devices?

I ask that because on my browser (on my home computer) there is a LOT more white space on the screen. If that is part of making the website more useful across a variety of platforms, I understand the direction you're taking. My TUG use is primarily on my home computer - rarely on a portable device - but that may not be the typical profile anymore.

Regardless, the new design looks sharp and is easily readable. I do not see anything confusing and I like how the 7 clickable boxes are now more prominent - more easier to read.

Looks great, Brian!

yes, the trend just like with everything is to make sites more mobile friendly. are actually now more folks accessing all TUG websites via "non desktops" these days

thanks for the feedback! ill forward on to the developers to get those items sorted! please keep posting here if you find anything else!

I would prefer scrolling thru rvws rather click & close each one individually.

Can you add something in the list of reviews indicating unit size? It could be something like adding a 0,1, 2 etc in the summary at the beginning of the description if there isn't room for a separate column? For resorts like DSI with 86 reviews, being able to sort through the reviews is more important.

I like to scroll through as well, but mostly to find the reviews that match the size unit I am looking for. When reading the reviews, I want to know, in order: what the unit is like, what the resort is like and then things to do in the area. Reading a review of a studio when I need a 2 BR or vice versa isn't as useful.

In addition, the date of the review is kind of useful, but what I am more interested in is date of visit. Most of the time, those 2 dates will be very close. So if you needed room to include the unit size, maybe get rid of the date of review?

I would add up front the exchange companies affiliated with the resort: RCI, II, etc

The new pages are outstanding.

My input isn't specific to the review pages; it's related to the resort tier throughout the site. II added an "Elite" tier, but TUG still displays "Premiere" for those that were bumped to Elite. As an example, I've attached the tier icons for MGC; it's an Elite resort on II, but reflected as a Premiere resort on TUG.
