Over the past week we've been thinking of ways to make the news section of the site more friendly.
In the end we decided that it might be a good idea to make the site news, the same style as reviews & articles. Take a look at these test pages to tell me what you think:
The new homepage layout changes the existing news into clickable links. This should make accessing the homepage faster as none of the news images are displayed until you click on a news item you are interested in.
The images of the newspaper currently displayed will *in future* be replaced with more suitable icons.
At present, old news is just bundled into one area
. The new news layout will seperate the news into years (and then possibly months) for easier viewing.
News items will now have the ability to contain more than 1 page, and each page can have its own header (just like reviews).
All of this is very well, but will require a fair bit of time on our part to get everything looking smooth - so we want your vote on whether the new layout roxx or blowz!
