Today we are rolling out a new responsive design for the main page of Neowin news.
Once the prerequisites are done, the main page will be offline until it is completed. We've taken into account all the feedback over the past couple of years, and the design has actually been almost a year in the making. It will now be fully responsive, with larger fonts and darkside is back.. there's even an "Auto mode" that changes the default theme to darkside on sunset. While we know it won't be perfect and there will most likely be bugs from the offset, we've had the test site open to staff and subscribers for the last month (and two weeks for subs) for feedback and based on that feedback we feel we're on the right track.
A couple of points to make clear what is happening,
- Only main will be updated today, once we're happy that we don't have to make further changes and ensure it is bug free, the wrapper on the forums will also get updated.
- The "wrapper" is the header (navigation) and footer, the content area of the forums will remain as it is.
- The forums will not see any major update, IPB4 will happen this year, and that is when we'll look at the forum style again.
- We'll listen for bugs and feedback.
