New Website Now Online!

Welcome to the latest version of ESTA Safety Park's website!  While the new website doesn't look entirely different from the old, there's plenty of changes that have taken place under the hood!

The new website is built using a Content Management System (CMS). CMS allows the site to be updated from any internet connected computer without the need for expensive software or html or other coding knowledge. What this means to the track is eliminating duplicity and expenses of having the site updated by outside sources. They will be able to write and publish result articles, press releases and news right from their web browser. 

 


The website is now integrated with the track's Facebook and Twitter feeds, which should help keep everyone up-to-date with the latest news.

 

A new forum has also been put into place on the new website. We will be ditching the current Staging Lanes message forum for a few reasons. It will eliminate the annoying display ads that Freeforums.org imposes to free subscribers and we'll also have greater control over spam postings and forum trolls.

In order to eliminate the "nameless" flamethrowers who love to rip on the track or other racers, we will be implementing a registration process that requires the registrant's real name and verifiable contact information. Forum rules violations will be easier for moderators to address more efficiently.

In order to register for the new forums:

  • Click on "Create an account" underneath the login area of the new forum.
  • Fill out the registration form with your information and click "register"
  • An activation link will be sent to the email address you provide.  You must open this email and click on the activation link.
  • After activation, your account MUST be MANUALLY approved by an administrator before you can log in. You will be sent an email letting you know when your account has been approved. Evening or Weekend registrations may take longer to approve as we're not monitoring the site 24/7.

For the time being, the old Staging Lanes forum can be accessed here.  The old forum will still be available until the transition to the new forum is complete.

PLEASE NOTE: Users of Internet Explorer 6 will experience some viewing glitches with the new website, which can easily be solved by UPGRADING your browser! Newer versions of Internet Explorer and Mozilla's Firefox are the best browsers and are free to download.  If you're experiencing any sort of glitch or error with the new website, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it so that we can look into it!

 


Still in the Works:

We are also currently looking into a photo gallery that will allow users to upload their ESTA photos to share with visitors of ESTAdrags.com. Of course there would need be a moderator approval system in place so avoid those "creative" porta-john pics that would definitely find their way into the gallery!

Nearly every ESTA Staging Lanes visitor has made multiple visits to Dick Aversa's nostalgic photo post on this forum. We're working on including a special Vintage section that Dick will be able to update with more detail from home.
