New Shitty Layout!!!

Unless you’re one of those cocksuckers using RSS to read this site (RSS gives you herpes), you’ll have noticed that we’re now 60% more orange than before! And while I’m sure new ideas, cultures, and layouts make you uncomfortable, I want you all to bear with us as we slowly roll out features en route to Fightlinker 2.0.

As it stands, I’m arbitrarily declaring this upgrade to be version 1.5, even though technically we’ve gone through several crazy changes over the past year and a bit. Over the next few days we’ll be dusting off new features and putting them live … the comic section (with OMG new comics!), the store (shirts, baby), and some other keen things.

As we mentioned on the Low Blow last week, we’ve got a new turbo-charged engine ready to go but we’re having trouble cramming it under the hood of our shitbox. This is step one, and past this point the look of the site won’t be changing … there’ll just be more stuff for you all to waste your time on.

Thanks again to everyone who reads and everyone who participates in the madness that is this site. I honestly don’t find myself amusing enough to keep all this up on my own, so the comments and emails are definitely appreciated.

    Second…what the fuck is this shit?

    Damn this crap hurts my eyes…

    All Your Base!

    Someone set us up the citrus

  • fightlinker

    Oh, as a side note, we realize the comments section looks like balls at the moment. We ported over the old comments style but internet explorer fucked everything up. So yea … until tommorow noonish expect things to look a little wierd in the comments.

    Any other tech issues, please post in here.

  • Jonathan

    I feel like this is a whole new world!

  • Spork

    Ive been reading this site for a couple months now, its pretty much the Stewart-Colbert take on MMA.

    That may be overstepping things a weee bit.

  • Mr. Theplague

    Not bad. You polished this turd up pretty nicely.

  • Asa

    This is a pretty shitty template guys. You had me all amped when you talked about your design skillz on the show. And then you roll out this rushed template with horrible spacing and weak palette.

    It looks like shit, but as long as you keep bringing the content and the best f’n radio show in MMA, I’ll keep visiting.

  • dignan

    I like the new layout…clean. I also like the colour orange.

  • Swedish guy

    Orange is 73h 5h17, and as soon as the comments get readable again this theme will be awesome. Good job!

  • Xavier

    It is difficult to read the comments.

    Otherwise, it looks less like a shitty wordpress blog. Kudos.

  • Swedish guy

    I like the small translucent hexagons at the top! If they were octagons, your asses would be sued bigtime.


    The FL logo @ top left sucks ass, it makes you guys look like some white trash Florida residents, purveyors of hexagonal Orange juice…

    Main page is alreet, too white tho…

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain)

    In my settings it’s stuck on this blue shit and I don ‘t know how to turn it off. Fightlinker has his own RSS feed just for Kevin Iole and he knows it.

  • Cyrus

    hahahahhahahahahah ahahahahaha ahahahahah ahahahahah ahahahaha ahhahahaha hahahahahaa – your last style was so much better than this piece of shit you guys suck balls. This is as bad as frankie’s fucking lazer beam eyeball, and far worse than GSP’s new site. Eat bonch!

  • frickshun

    The site now looks like every other jackass “I’m more hardcore than you” know-it-all site. Luckily, I can post here w/o registering so I’ll continue to give my keen insight on your keen insight.

  • Matt

    Took my eyes a little while to adjust kinda like when you first wake up and walk outside but all and all it’s aight.

  • Accomando

    Can you go back to the old site?

  • Trol

    Yes you can. I went back to the old style. Drop down box over on the right, select Fightlinker 1.0

  • Accomando

    Thx trol.

  • bmiller

    are you guys going to be selling babies in your store???

  • EdenMachine

    Just FYI – your site name in your RSS feed as your URL instead of “Fightlinker” like it used to display.

  • Higgz

    I gladly support Fightlinker…it’s the “Daily Show” of mma news.

    If Jon Stewart has taught us anything, it’s that the news doesn’t have to be breaking or even true, but if it’s funny, America will embrace it.

  • kermit.01

    I still like the smurf-ass blue better than orange. Far to sunny for me.

  • fightlinker

    Comments are fixed up … thanks for the props and criticisms guys. We appreciate it all, even when you say we suck. In fact, I love that the most … oh yeah, masochism, bitch!

  • Jonathan

    There is no home link!

  • fightlinker

    Jonathan : Fixed. And we will change the title image soon so that the whole topbar works like a big home button

  • intenso

    The Daily Show? That shit was played out like three years ago.

  • intenso

    I just switched back to 1.0.

    oO that’s so much better.

    orange is ass.

  • steve24

    I’m not sure what everybody is bitching about. I like the new site layout. Much more appealing to the eyes. Good job!

  • nem0

    I’m biased because I like orange websites, but it looks nice to me. Props.

  • stellar53

    I like the website…..

  • Swedish guy

    Comments look good, now it’s just that the email-field is like of infinite length.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah, the fucking thing refuses to behave. I’m waiting for word back from my code monkeys as to what’s up with that

  • intenso

    everything looks and works great back here in the 1.0.

  • dance2tranz

    your new layout is ok, pretyy well organized. Your new logo on the other thing looks like preschool drawing project. Did you rip this idea of IFL? Not a very good business model to copy. By the way you guys rule, love the show.

  • ajadoniz

    my e-mail isn’t that long, wtf? kidding. umm, i like orange. very good.

  • kentyman

    This website looks like it was drawn by a 2nd grader.

    Just kidding, I like it.

  • Hywel Teague

    the new design is horrendous

    why orange?
