phpBB Homepage Updated

Post by Christian 2.0 » Thu Jun 10, 2010 11:05 pm

Noticed this by accident, love how clean and accessible it looks. :) Kudos to everyone involved.

Any plans to update other areas of the site, downloads page perhaps? :P

The downloads page was actually revamped within the last year or so if memory serves.

Unfortunately you've opted not to let non-followers view your tweets so we've no idea what the point you're trying to make is ;)

What are your grounds for saying this? Obviously every man to his own when it comes to the aesthetics, although in terms of usability you've got to admit that it's an improvement from the former layout. :)

I think it's fresh... Only the announcement & blog post text is a bit on the large side...

Can't say I am a fan. It was nice how the announcements were clearly visible. Now you have to scroll down the page. Also, It was simple and clean. This new design is a bit "in your face" which is annoying.

Nope. Obviously Christian 2.0 here can view them (and he's not following me that I know of), so it is just you that has no idea of the point I'm trying to make. ;)
However, I still can't read it. There's also the possibility you blocked me from your reading your status updates, but that's not particularly relevant to this topic.

Regardless, even if two release lines are maintained, one will feature more prominence than the other -- you may recall in phpBB2's final days it was removed from the home page as well. That being said, we will look into when the time comes.

As for the hover link, noted -- keep in mind this is still a relatively early concept so changes will still be made. Perhaps a light gray would work better?

I have to agree, it went from bad to worse IMHO as now any pertinent text such as announcements or recent blog entries have been pushed quite a ways down the page (and requires the user to scroll) which is normally the opposite of what you want to accomplish. Never having been a fan of the header graphics (they always seemed targeted to kindergarten age users) these new ginormous images that look to be targeted at children as well are...shall we say less than successful at projecting a professional image. All in all it comes off as unpolished and hodge podge from a design perspective. But then again this project's mascot is a teddy bear apparently so perhaps the images are in line with the target audience which certainly would explain a lot. ;)

We are currently looking into some alternative layouts that will reduce the size of these images.

Edit: These changes should be live now. You may need to purge your browser cache.
