You may notice that things look a bit different here on The E Club. From the revolutionary responsive design to the enhanced typography to a more refined experience in general, The E Club has been rebuilt from the ground up to deliver the ultimate web experience. Here's what's new.
A powerful design on all screens.
The E Club has always been about bringing great Mario, Star Trek, and science content to the public. Now, with a cutting-edge responsive design, The E Club can do that better than ever. This breakthrough design is the culmination of everything we've learned while crafting the mobile versions of other sites in The E Club Family (most notably The E Club+). It is absolutely stunning on every screen, smartphone, desktop, or otherwise.
Music & video, reimagined.
The top bar music player on the homepage has always been an integral part of The E Club – so it's now on every page. Where is it? Try clicking on the top bar banner or tapping The E Club's logo in the header on mobile devices.
Videos across The E Club have been revolutionized as well. Their dimensions are proportional to the size of your screen, giving you a seamless, more pleasurable viewing experience and decreased loading time.
Smart Search. Convenience, redefined.
The E Club has had a search engine since almost the beginning – starting with FreeFind and then Google Custom Search, there has always been an easy way to search The E Club Family. But now, The E Club 3.0 takes search one step further with Smart Search. The menu and the search engine now work seamlessly together, so when you start typing, Smart Search automatically brings up pages on The E Club that match your search. Plus, you can press Enter to search The E Club and the rest of The E Club Family as usual. And best of all, it works on all devices with a gorgeous new design.
The E Club Secure. So you stay safe.
The E Club has always been about bringing you the best experience possible while protecting your privacy. Now, we've taken that a step further – The E Club 3.0 is now HTTPS by default on almost all browsers, preventing intruders from attacking as you browse. If your browser doesn't support The E Club Secure, it will fall back to the already-safe HTTP version.
The E Club Family. Anytime, anywhere.
Remember NavLogo? This nascent technology from 2011 was designed to unify The E Club Family like never before but then disappeared due to technical reasons. But The E Club 3.0 has been designed to overcome these technical difficulties, and so NavLogo has returned in different form. How different? Simply hover over the link to The E Club Family's page in the footer (on desktops only for now) and experience the ultimate culmination of The E Club technology.
The all-new Event Calendar.
The E Club's Event Calendar has been around for a long time, and now we're taking it to the next level. Running on a cutting-edge jQuery backend, the new Event Calendar is faster, lighter, and easier to use than ever before. Plus, it turns into a smartphone-friendly list mode on smaller screens.
The most refined experience ever.
With The E Club 3.0, we're taking a new approach to web design; its unprecedented efficiency and end-to-end control allow us to do amazing things never before possible. That means we're able to introduce brand-new features like Smart Search and new responsive innovations in addition to profound refinements to existing services and features such as the ClubIt! platform and YouTube video integration. This combined with new design innovations makes The E Club 3.0 the best version of The E Club ever.
