    If you can't afford 300$ for a template professional, don't do it.

    You know that's actually pretty good, far better than the current design or the soon to be new design. I agree with everyone else, everything is misaligned and will make it hard to read, I would prefer the current site over that mess!

      clavko's layout is better, but that light green top banner just pokes me in the eye. Maybe a layout pro, but definitely not those colors

        For those concerned about the misalignment on the home-page, it's still a WIP and the next version to be shown should be straighter flow and more polished. Feedback is always welcome, thanks.

          Yeah...I gotta agree, Michael, go with Clavko's layout.. maybe not those colors (keep the usual phoronix green), but definitely that layout.

            Alright, here's your feedback. Not that I think you're listening anyway, but whatever.

            You offer us the option to use the old site theme, or I'll have no choice but to do it myself.

              The option may be given to premium users.

                Thank you. I will re-try buying the premium subscription now.

                I have had problems with the payment system in the past, which ultimately prevented me from buying Phoronix Premium. (I also contacted you about this back then, don't know if you remember me)

                  What a ridiculously misaligned unprofessional page. The creator must already suffer eye-cancer from the current design...

                    Why change the site if you are not adding any worthwhile features?

                        As far as I know, Google Currents has limited advertising possibilities? If so, no.

                          Well, the current mobile advertising makes the site almost unusable on mobile devices anyway... limited advertising as a trade off for people browsing it more.

                            Michael, I know you have a distaste for ad blockers, but I thought I'd point out that ABP has a means of getting certain ad providers whitelisted by default, so long as they follow these criteria:
                            https://adblockplus.org/en/acceptable-ads#criteria
                            You may or may not find the terms too stringent, but I think they at least provide some basic ideas as to what constitutes unobtrusive ads (and therefore ads more likely to be unblocked).

                              Ads like that would bankrupt Phoronix... They bring in about a 20th of the revenue of normal ads.

                                Honestly what you should do is serve the nice ads to people with an ad blocker, and the awful ones to the rubes.

                                But your ad provider probably would have to implement that themselves, i'd guess.
