Redesigned website and user registration

Have you had a chance to check out NoVAGO’s website redesign? We’ve overhauled the appearance in an attempt to modernize its look and feel. We are also hoping to move away from the dated forums.
We hope that you’ll take a few minutes to look around and familiarize yourself with the layout and information available.

— The most recent post will be featured at the top center of the home page. Click to read the full post.

— The new layout will also suggest other posts for you to read.

— The left sidebar has a link to join our Slack workspace, a link to our Instagram feed, and popular tags from blog posts.

— The right sidebar has recent comments on blog posts, a countdown timer to upcoming NoVAGO events, and the calendar of events in the NoVAGO area.

Site registration

One of the new features we implemented on the site is user registration. At the top right of the home page (below the header image), is “Join NoVAGO/Login.” Select that menu to head to the registration site to create your account. Unfortunately, your login from the forums will not work here. We recommend using your geocaching.com username to make it easier to identify you.

Registering for the site does a number of things:

  1. Officially designates you as a NoVAGO member
  2. Gives you access to the Photo of the Month page to submit photos and vote on monthly polls
  3. Allows you to comment on blog posts

Site registration also helps us reduce the likelihood of spam in our comments and among our user registrations (have you ever looked at the users in the forums!?!?).

Feedback

We want to hear from you! What do you like? What do you think is missing? What improvements do you suggest? Post a comment here after registering 😉, join our Slack workspace, or contact us.
