You're not going crazy… our site is changing its look!

bsoremsugar —  July 29, 2008 — 2 Comments

We’re about ready to launch our new, significantly revamped Developer site to the world. If you blink tomorrow night (or refresh your browser) and all of a sudden things look a lot different, you’re not going crazy. It will be different!

In addition to the snazzy visual changes, we’ll be implementing some functional ones as well. You’ll be able to rate each item as helpful or unhelpful, and will be able to view and submit user-contributed comments (a la php.net). You will be able to browse items by “recent additions”, “most popular” and “most viewed” along with category, version and edition. You will be able to quickly share articles using several types of social network links such as Facebook, Google bookmarks, Digg, and many more.

The target date for the new site is the evening of Wednesday, July 30th.

We hope you like the new look of the site, and as always, we welcome your comments. A big thank you to our website developer Lam for all of his hard work!

    Hi Sugar,

    This is good news, reading UGC on sites like php.net makes it even more valuable. It will be great to see the same level of community support available here.

    I’m concerned about the level of moderation on this UGC will be as human intervention will be required to ensure that comments are accurate and helpful too… can we expect to see the ability to “rate” comments too?
