    Phoronix: PHXCMS-8 Enters Development

    As I shared last week on Twitter, plans for PHXCMS-8 were conceived last week, which will power a major re-design of Phoronix.com. This process will take several months before the new content management system and design will be rolled-out, but in the meantime are a few tweaks to the Phoronix home-page...

    Auto-login for premium members without having to go to the forum! That's actually my number 1 request. It shouldn't be that hard, right?

    Otherwise a little update on the design is welcome, perhaps a bit wider reading pane with "cleaner" design around it. Over all a bit more (don't kill me for using this wording) HTML5-type-of-design would be welcome! Dynamic pages so you don't have to reload everything, etc.
    But that's just minor stuff, the log-in is the most important =)

      modernizing the site (graphic wise, identity, logo maybe) won't hurt i think

        After the tweak it is no longer possible to navigate older news.

            The new front page looks good.

            OTOH, I still get an error on forum login:

            vBulletin Message
            Invalid Redirect URL (http://www.phoronix.com/forums/)

              Oh and editing posts is broken. None of the editing buttons do anything, not even cancel.

                  No. It also used to work before, so I guess the same change that caused the login error broke editing.

                  Opera 11.50

                    Also, I tested a fresh install of Opera too, to rule out any fault in my settings or profile. It has the same symptoms.

                      Must be due to the latest vBulletin update.

                          C'mon Michael! This is the most important thing to do.

                            I'll agree with the others that would like to see an auto-login without having to visit the forums first.

                              Yes, it's definitely part of the new site.
