Colnect Looking Good Everywhere - Responsive Design

Colnect is now dressed to impress on any device in any size. Until now, Colnect's design was nice but not very adaptable to the many variations of screen resolutions such as on mobile phones, tablets and full HD screens. Now we are happy to announce Colnect has developed a new design that will comfortably adjust to any way you'd like to view it.

Have you ever tried browsing Colnect on your mobile? How about your tablet? or even putting it up on an HD screen? Now is the time to try and see how the new Colnect pages react to your choices.

The new design is available to Colnect members with only one click, Click here to try the new design. If you're not logged in, the new design would be the default now.

We welcome you to try the new design and provide us with feedback before we make the change permanent. We have rewritten much of the code related to the site's design and we'll be making many more updates in the coming week to finish and polish what's missing.

What kind of things you will notice in the new design? Selected items of important information has been custom chosen to each screen, so you will always see what you need, no more, no less. List length, amount of rows and image size now all change according the size of screen or browser window. Play with the Colnect browser window size now and see Colnect shrink and grow to fit perfectly. We also needed to address some device specific issues, such as adjusting the Colnect menus to the mobiles touch screen so browsing is made quick and easy and allowing for spacious view on wide screen resolutions without unneeded scrolling or empty space.

If the new design is not working well for you, please report the problems you experience on the forum, along with a screen shot, the URL you visit and the browser you use, and we'll do our best to respond quickly.

Please note that our forum system doesn't support responsive design yet. We plan to upgrade it soon enough though. This means that when you view the forums on your mobile, you'll likely have to zoom in.

So go ahead and give this new design a spin :)
