E21 Registry Updated! - Tricord

I have created a new system for the E21 registry!

From now on, it's very simple to add your car to the registry. You can do it yourself from the Member Pages. There is support for multiple cars per owner, and there is space to write about both modifications and history.

The registry itself can be found at the usual place (bottom of the navigation menu).
There is still room for improvement, but the base is there. Now please go add your car(s)

Also, something that has nothing to do with the site itself, but which is very nifty is thumbnail caching.

Thumbnails are used everywhere, not only in the registry. They're used in the forums, the classifieds section and in several other places. The webserver had to resize the original image for you each time you requested a page with a thumbnail on it. This isn't the only site that runs on the server, so when it get busy thumbnails were slow to load.

But now thumbnails are cached, the server will resize them once and keep a resized copy handy in case it is requested again. It will only re-resize the original image if it has modified since the last resize. This should considerably speed things up.

Thumbnails are also aspect-ratio friendly now.

Images used to be smeared out to meet a specific size, but no longer.
