Website Page Layout

Some visitors to the main Spica Publishing website emailed to tell us that the layout of pages on the Spica Publishing website is inconsistent, so we took a look at it – and they were right: some pages had three columns (left sidebar, main content, right sidebar) whilst others had two sidebars (content, right sidebar). As a result, we spent some time today deciding which layout looks best and, once that was decided, making changes to pages so that all pages on the site have the same layout.

We decided to go for the content, right sidebar layout as we felt the left sidebar, main content, right sidebar layout option looked too busy and confusing. We also removed the Facebook page feed as that seemed to have stopped working for reasons unknown. Whilst making the changes, we noticed that the Information page is actually…well…blank, so we’ll post something interesting or useful into that space this weekend.

We think these small changes improve the site, and we hope you like them too!

Broken Links Fixed & Website Content Added

The broken links to Spica Publishing’s page on DriveThruRPG.com for Career Book 2 and Allies, Contacts, Enemies & Rivals have now been fixed. We’ve also fixed the broken links to Spica Publishing’s Lulu store for Career Book 2 and ACER.

We’ve added some more content under the Stuff We Like menu on the main website – check it out!

Product Information Pages Updated

Now that the forums are back up and running again, we set to work on adding the missing product information to the relevant pages.

All of Spica Publishing’s products now have a completed product information page, and the Products page has been updated with new information about our products. We also adjusted the layout of the site  and we tweaked some of the menus to make more sense after receiving feedback from visitors. Some visitors have reported dead or broken links on the website, so thank you to everyone who emailed us about them! Well get to seein’ to those shortly.

In the meantime, Keep Flyin’!

The Spica Publishing Forums are Back!

New_Spica_Publishing_Forums

We’re really pleased to announce that, at long last, the Spica Publishing forums are back online!

As promised, the forums have a clean, modern white and charcoal grey theme that looks great and is easy to use! All the usual board features are present and we’ll be looking to add some additional functionality in the future. We’ve also included a snazzy header picture of some official Spica Publishing d6 dice and some of those funny sided dice, too. Now that the forums are back up we can continue to add updated content to empty pages on the website, which had to be put on hold to get the forums fixed.

The database and forum software have already been tested and backed up (twice for today!) but, unfortunately, the technical issues that affected the forums means that some users may have to re-register, or upload their avatar again. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause but, if you need help with your forum account, please use the Contact Spica Publishing page on the main Spica Publishing website and we’ll do our best to help.

You can log in to the Spica Publishing forums by clicking here.

You can register for the first time or re-register by clicking here.

Once again, we’d like to thank all of our customers who have been in touch about the website and forums reboot –  thank you all for your patience whilst we got things fixed!

See you on the forums!
