Just casually checked the HT.com site and I noticed some changes. What you all think?

I like it. The official site has always been well done with exception of the boards at times.

First impression's a good one for me. I'll have to dive through a few pages though. :)

At least the crappy click-through "splash page" is gone - that alone is a HUGE plus!

Yeah, that was bothersome at first, but I just changed the link in my favorites to take me directly to the home page.

As far as the re-design, eh, I'll get used to it. I've never been the type that usually digs 'change', but I rarely have a choice. :)

its more of a freshening than a change.

Seldom go there except for roster changes. I get my info right here and through the occasional "heads up" email.

I like the new design a lot! The one thing I hated about HT.com's old layout, was it looked like something I could have made, and I only have like 2 years of experience in HTML. The website looks a lot more "current."

Here is Nick's summary of the changes...

Texans fans, I'm proud to announce that the redesigned HoustonTexans.com will be unveiled this morning. There will be a one-hour window, between approximately 9-10 a.m., when HoustonTexans.com will be unavailable. Afterward, the new site will be introduced featuring several improvements and upgrades. Following are a few of the new features and enhancements:

*Vastly improved search engine
*Easier site navigation with footer links
*Enhanced video player with elapsed time indicator
*Increased site speed and load time
*Streamlined homepage design with higher res images and direct links
*Revamped Gameday section and player bio pages
*Redesigned Texans TV page with innovative video stats layout
*New article pages with links to social media
*Easier access to season ticket account manager
*Added integration with official team message boards and I'm a Texan Club

Please check out the new site today and throughout the next few weeks and send us your feedback. Thank you for your patience as we migrate to the new site this morning.

Very nice. I like Nick, he seems to really enjoy reaching out to the fans to get their opinion. It might be his job, but he seems to enjoy doing it.

i am used to the old one, and like that one more, though it was plain it was simple. now it looks like all the other teams formats

OK so where is Brooke Bentley going? Demeco let it out of the bag during their interview. Anyone know.

I for one have enjoyed the job she has done. I wish her luck in next stop.

I have no clue where she's going, but I'm going to miss her interviewing the players.

She probably got a job with BSPN...

Kinda obvious Brooke wouldn't be here long.

Ain't ugly and has a clue. Nice combo...

I'm sorry :smiliedance:

I'm sure this is for more money and chance to start her way up the ladder, so I wish her luck.

I thought the same thing when I heard about it this morning. I didn't catch what she was going to be doing there if it was mentioned.

I liked her work with the Texans website. I wish her luck

Haven't been to the official boards since this one was transferred here. Perhaps I've become use to this board but I never liked the board software at the official site since they changed from this one.

I also noticed that TT has a new banner, well done!

I like the new layout. Its basically the same with just a few upgrades.

No more Brooke Bentley is a sad thing, I enjoyed her videos, and plus shes sexy as hell. :love: I wish her the best.

Kudos to her. Gotta' go to a small market before you can land a gig like Houston! I'll miss her, she was always very polite to the wife and I.
