Over the last couple of years the focus of the site has changed, with the forums now the main part of the site rather than an add on. In fact many people don't even know that there is more to RIBnet than the forums.
What was the "main" site has been neglected for a while now, and a complete rework has been long overdue. The new trade directory is now on-line (just needs a few more people to add their details!) and you will probably have noticed the new orange nav bar at the top of the page and possibly even the new home page
The links database is very basic at the moment but I have plans to make it more comprehensive and easier to use (more information about the links, and easier to get links added). It's on my "to do" list, but it will probably be a while.
There are some bits and pieces that have been made temporarily homeless by the changes (the old features, publications, about RIBnet etc) but they'll be fitted in some time when I get round to it.
I hope that the new layout makes it easier to get around RIBnet and gives a more consistent feel to the whole site.
As ever, I'd be interested to hear any thoughts, comments, criticisms or suggestions that you might have.
