Relaunch of Neowin.net Friday Jan 15th 2010

Actually, if it had mini-spy built in (without going to new content) then I would use it :p

Theres only so much data we want to send over the air. I'm sure members would get really annoyed if we force updated the page everytime someone posted something on the mobile theme.

LOL, that's a whole lot of posts to dig through. ;)

I hope the upgrade goes well, and wish you the best of luck, and that Murphy is having business elsewhere! ;)

Now that we can are getting some insight into IP.Board 3.1. How difficult/easy would the next update be? Not as long as this one has taken I hope ;)

Going from 3.x.x to 3.1 won't be anywhere near as hard because it's the same base number. It isn't a completely new version, just minor/major updates.

This one has taken a while as we have re-written the entire front page from the ground up, and in order to minimise disruption, we decided to launch both that and IPB3 at the same time.

Good luck guys

Your new design is exceptional and I'm glad that it will be public soon. You sure must be proud for your work not only for atlas but for existing theme too.

Shouldn't you wait until IPB 3.1 is released? :o

Why? so then when it is someone can say "Why not wait till 3.2?"

Why bother, its such a small update it'll take no time to update. Plus if we wait for ipb, we'd end up waiting forever.

Yep. I would think (and hope for sanity's sake) that building a website of this size *would* use a plugin based system. Our current codebase doesn't and it's a massive pain to change anything (and is probably responsible for most of the bugs we find, change one thing, break 10 others)

Well then I have to say I agree with you then. :p

I think they were talking about the differences between IPB 3.0.x and IPB 3.1

I take it Neowin might be down a good portion of the day Friday, all depending on how the conversion goes, of course?

I really can't wait for the update to the Mobile site. In the new Mobile Forums, will there be an easy way to just go to your threads (Like you can on the desktop site)? This would be a really useful feature that I've been missing from the current mobile site...

Just had a look on the mobile version of the new forums on my iPhone for you and no it doesn't seem to let you do that.

I'm pretty sure there is, I think I've seen it in the promo video Im making (albeit this part ended up on the cutting room floor). Can't immediately tell you where though - try going to your profile, see if there's a link there.
