Basenotes Version 6 (2007)

Basenotes Version 6 was, until now, my absolute favourite version of Basenotes.

I'm not sure why, I think it was the left-hand navigation that sways me. It was also the first time I'd managed to make the Community properly look like the rest of the site. It felt much more cohesive.

It would have stayed like this for a lot longer, but two things happened:

vBulletin launched version 4 of their forum software, and the tired old database scripts (yep, still the one that read each fragrance line-by-line until it found the right one) were really feeling the strain. You think Basenotes gets slow now? You should have seen it then!

I supposed I'd better start learning to code PHP then I guess...
