Yes, Bob, they have a slightly different profile. I had forgotten about that DJ3A/3B part being different. I guess we need someone in a nice scenic area of Utah with a yellow jeep to take a few pictures at a similar angle. Hint Hint.  Wink A tan jeep in Canada would do also. EDIT: So would a white one!! Needs to be high contrast and black and white for me to work with it.

Question is, is it a decent idea for a new 3A page logo? At the moment there are at least three I can think of,depending on what page you go to.

There is the logo made by Roberto on the Forum itself. (Blue jeep with dog)
There is the logo on the old page on top right corner saying we are on the cj3a page. (white and black jeep with top)

I would like to have only one new logo.

Somethings like your picture. And maybe we can add "www.cj3apage.com" on it.

I'm just throwing this out there, but why not a picture of the windshield frame? That is the most recognizable part of a 3A...

Don't worry! You will be promote as well I think.  Wink

I don't know why yet but with internet explorer under the home and contact us section, a tire line is added at the bottom...!?1  Huh Wonderful word of Bill Gates!

It look fine under Mozilla FireFox and Google Chrome.
Will check it with Safari at home later.

A lot of changes lately to the website.

With the help of John, some typo and grammar correction.

We reviewed the "auto-size" to window feature. So the site should be displayed correctly on different display resolution.

Reviewed some backwards compatibility issues with previous browser version.

At some point, I will decide and trace a baseline on which browser version is supported or not.

Actually, it work well on latest version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera, Windows IE ver 7-8 and on android.

Did'nt check it with Avant Browser or iphone yet.

Oh! I almost forgot.  Smiley I did try to make it more readable...
So the text is now black on white background for main text. This is to agree with the people forum average age! Lol!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Thank you Pascal. Us youngsters appreciate you making the site more readable for our elders.  Grin Grin

Would like to see a different font....someday. More like what you see at the top left of our forum pages... and the places where you have to click to get a different page might be better in a contrasting color....so you know to click there.

Does anyone else think we need to send Pascal a gift of appreciation for all his work? I'm thinking a Walcks gift certificate or similar... I have a feeling a lot of time has been spent on this.

I do appreciate the offer but I want nothing. I do it for myself.

As long as everybody like what I do for the site, I'm happy.  Smiley
This site help me a lot with my CJ3A so it's my way to give something back.

And..hug!... Huh
The cj3apage is my beta/dummy/trial/learning site.

I plan to get my own website. It will be on the long version of the jeep. The CJ-6 and DJ-6. Maybe more on DJ-6 since I own one.
I'm thinking about something like "www.thelongjeeppage.com".

I will suggest you to keep me busy with the 3A site   Roll Eyes  then I will not have time to start my own site!  Grin

For some reasons, the oldsite webpage is not displaying properly anymore with firefox browser.

Not sure if it's related or not with the forum upgrade but I move a lot of stuff on the website so...I need to recheck everything. Sorry for the inconvenient and please tell me any others problems you may find.

For anyone who is interested by, I did add a favorite icon to the website.

It's my little drawings of a CJ3A.

It should also appear in your bookmarks.

If you were looking to jazz up the 3a page, start reading and getting to know the 3b page. I would consider that website the gold standard for organizing and displaying information and stories. Granted, it is a very old website so they have had time to get it the way it is.
