For some time now, WebChimp UK
and I have wanted to give the site homepage a bit of a redesign.
We wanted to make it easier for you to find the stories you want to read, to give more information about each story, and to generally improve the look of the page.
We have just launched this new homepage in Beta for Pro Account holders
, and you can see some of the features in the following screenshots:
Featured story section Newslist Reviews section Community section
While our main focus has been on the homepage, we've also worked hard on improving the news stories themselves:
Clearer fonts and links, bigger images and a sticky share bar
We've also added a panel for related news that you haven't read yet to the bottom.
And we've also made some small tweaks to the tabs and side panels to make them cleaner:
New, cleaner tabs Cleaner side panels
We'll be rolling out these changes to the full user base, along with some other styling changes, in the coming weeks. We think they will lead to a big improvement in your enjoyment of the site.Pro Account holders
