Morning guys

It's actually more a compliment than a complaint :) Not sure if it is the right forum for this.

I noticed small changes in the forum layout as well as the avialability check page.
The new contrast and way it is done is very very good.

For instance the camps being separated by a bordered column and then the "Accommodation fully booked" in red letters is so much clearer :)

Good Job :) I like it :)

I am not a very spatialy observant person, but I have felt that I am in a very uncluttered space. 8)

Thats a good word. Unclutered. Also the new look of the availability check makes it clear which camp you are looking at. Small change that made a HUGE improvement.

Hi baffers, MM - the 'slight new look' is part of the changes that were launched yesterday that were made to the design elements of the main site and as a result a change to forum as well.

These changes highly elevated the standards of the booking process on the main site and gives a much more user friendly experience.

You will also notice the forums load much quicker now 8)

For some reason when I want to do an online booking the process cannot complete.

Choosing the camps, accommodation and nights......works fine
Going to checkout and list of accommodation booked......works fine

However none of the fields for the credit card details work, neither drop downs and fill-in. Actually none of the links except the social media links is active on the page.

I'm using Firefox 8.0.1 but also tried on IE 8.0.7601.17514

I have not used this function before so not sure if this is related to the upgrade and if anyone else experience this

Hi Francois,

Thank you for posting this, I am unable to replicate your issue, however would like to assist.

Are you able to take a screenshot of the page where the issue is being had, and email it to me on the following address: steven.macintyre@sanparks.org

Thanks

Steven,

Did you receive the email I sent you and if so any feedback as to what possibly might be the cause?
