TPF News website redesign

[ #40500 ]

I've just uploaded a new design for http://news.perlfoundation.org. Based on the perldoc.perl.org style, it implements Phil Smith's idea for the "Explore Perl" toolbar. I'll blog in more detail about this later, but essentially we've now got a single list of links that appear on multiple sites but are maintained in a single place.

Many thanks to Ask, Squeaky, Phil Smith, and Karen for their help and ideas.

P.S. As with any redesign there may be the odd browser issue or bug, so if anything looks amiss please email me at jj@jonallen.info and I'll look into it.

  • That explore button looks amazing & works like a charm! Very, very nicely done. :-)

  • I've sent several email messages to various people at TPF over the past few years pointing out that the news blog has no links back to the main Web site. I've been told links aren't necessary, asked to wait patiently, and more recently ignored.

    I notice that this new design has several links to related parts of the main site. I'm very pleased that people who find themselves on TPF's blog but don't know what TPF does can now follow these links to find out.

  • It looks awesome! I hope that Explore bar makes it across all the perl.org sites (and even further into community sites).
