Made live today were a few minor tweaks to the new Phoronix.com site layout and PHXCMS-9 content management system. A few visual bugs were squashed and other small enhancements committed.

The most noticeable change was modifying the default font used on Apple iPods/iPhones when browsing the site. For some reason the default font used by the new site layout would cause odd shadowing issues on the iPod/iPhone when in portrait mode but wouldn't appear when in landscape mode, when shown on the iPad, or if zooming in the screen slightly. To workaround this weird iPhone font handling issue, the default font was changed.

A few other minor improvements have also been made to speed-up the page load times, improved browser compatibility, and some minor stylistic tweaks.

If you run into any new site problems, have feature requests, or other comments to provide on the new site please let us know via the forums, @MichaelLarabel on Twitter, or contact us. I'm also still dabbling with some mobile site improvements.

Last but not least, a few ad improvements have been made to hopefully nuke some of the more irrelevant ads from the networks providing the ads on Phoronix... For Phoronix readers that encounter inappropriate or completely off-topic ads, please provide a screenshot and ad URL to us to get them removed. We are unable to screen every ad individually so rely upon reports for being able to report any issues back to the ad networks. The earlier Android ad APK issues should also be resolved as of a few days ago. Additionally, there aren't too many high-profile advertisers specifically targeting Linux enthusiasts/gamers at this time, so even if you do see a Microsoft ad, just ignore it as they're still paying on a cost-per-impression basis. Thanks for your feedback and help.
