New look and feel to .info

Author: adrian.gosbell@synapse-i.jp (Adrian Gosbell)

I hope it's pretty obvious that there is a new look and feel to the site. Please post any findings in this thread and we'll start to work through them.    As some background.  The main reasons were to get the menu navigation more usable. This is because we have, and will add more as a result of our extraction from Compuware and moving away from Frontline. We know the links into the online call tracking need to be better, but this is dependent on us moving to a new CRM system (which is in hand).  This site is now responsive, meaning it's mobile device friendly. There are some glitches to iron out, and we are working through those.  Next steps:  Moving the Uniface documentation onto the site. (and implementing a mechanism to automatically update it as a result of our software build processes) Move the known bug lists onto the site (and implement a *decent* search mechanism to make it usable).  Implement the technical partner (eXtensions program) information.  Establish a download/distribution site for the software (you don't want to know the legal requirements for this).

The second section giving use cases for the required change, and frequently expansions on what the requester originally meant, seems to be missing entirely.    Iain

    We did think through the front page, and what should/should not be displayed. We'll think again, I'll look into the idea of repeating the workshop session we did. But I'd like to do that once we have all of the pieces completed and we can see how best to arrange them.

  2. FiresongKt said Ah, I've just noticed that the date field is a different (but not very different) colour on the forum where there are unread comments.  Not terribly obvious to a neophyte, but I can see what's new now... 

    And we need to make it clearer. We'll work on that.

  3. FiresongKt said I know I sound like I'm on my own personal hobby horse, Smile but we do seem to have lost the new comment/post markers you guys worked so hard to put in.  With the time not showing on recent threads, it's now impossible to see if someone replied to the question one just put up without clicking in to all the ones dated today to check them.  The new colours are nice, and the subtle change to the layout puts the forum higher up the page, for which thank you, but I'd really like the new comment markers back...    Iain

    Thanks Iain, we removed it to see if you were paying attention!  It will be reimplemented but in a way which is more 'in line' with the current look and feel.
