Time For Feedback On A New Phoronix Design
Written by Michael Larabel in Phoronix on 9 February 2014 at 03:43 PM EST. 82 Comments
Last summer we were working towards a new version of our in-house content management system and a brand new site layout developed by a German Phoronix reader. Due to mixed reactions that proposed layout wasn't launched, but work has been underway on a new version of Phoronix.com.

For those not following @MichaelLarabel on Twitter, this weekend I've started sharing some work-in-progress screenshots of a new design and more improvements to our underlying PHXCMS content management system. This new design isn't as much of a departure from our current design compared to what was shown last summer, but there's a refreshed color palette, it's a bit more mobile friendly (but still a proper mobile version of the site is on my long TODO list), and there's some other enhancements made.

While still very much a work-in-progress, embedded below are the latest screenshots as of Sunday afternoon as I call for a more diverse round of feedback on the new design. Your feedback is appreciated via the comments in the forums or by contacting me. Thanks!

UPDATE: For those in favor of the current green color scheme, here's the latest prototype:

A new site layout is certainly warranted with Phoronix.com turning ten years old this June! Thanks again for any feedback on this latest layout.
