A new design? You’re soaking in it.
I finally bit the bullet and launched the new design for the Newted Community site. All pages on the site, with the exception of the message boards (which have their own templating system and are a herd of ill-tempered beasts unto themselves…), have been rebuilt from scratch using standards-compliant HTML and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
What this means to you, the Newted Community visitor, is a much cleaner looking and faster loading user experience. Of course, because I used style sheets, the site will look much better in a browser that supports web standards such as Internet Explorer 5 and Netscape 6. However, because of the flexibility provided by using style sheets to separate the contents of this site from the visual formatting, the whole thing is accessible by any browser or internet access device – including a Newton.
And because the entire site can now be viewed in any type of browser, the need for separate low bandwidth pages has been eliminated. Not that they were getting updated on a regular basis anyway.
Other changes include the use of Blogger to maintain the news section you’re reading right now, updating of the support and membership information, combining all previously published reviews and articles into the infamous SoupBox section, and streamlining the payment system for new founders memberships.
As with any full-scale revamp, there are bound to be things that have been missed. If you spot any problems, please let me know. Your email hidden; JavaScript is required are always appreciated.
