Over the last few days we’ve been experimenting with a new site theme. You may see it click on and off a few times before it’s completely ready.
We’ve been using a slightly modified Tarski theme since the beginning. The new look isn’t a drastic departure, but it does have some new stuff:
- A couple bold, direct links at the top to different parts of the site. This will be worked into updated forum and wiki themes too. Inspiration: SparkFun.
- A smaller header with less fluff before the content. A small logo box, and a new place for rotating new project announcements that link directly to the project how-to. Inspiration: SparkFun.
- Three column layout. New left-hand column links to projects and sales pages. Inspiration: SparkFun, Adafruit.
- Wider center column for bigger, clearer pictures. We want to stretch it to 600px if possible. Inspiration: Adafruit.
A bunch of little changes are still in progress. If you notice any bugs, annoyances, or just hate the new design, please hit us up in the comments below.
