New Look for Director Online

Even since I took over Director Online two years ago, I’ve wanted to give it a face lift. Since it was born (7 years ago?) a lot of “developers sites” have sprung up for almost every development environment. Most of these sites look very rich with information. Lots of stuff on the front page. But Director Online had a very simple front page.
So I’ve added a bunch of RSS feeds, using my own RSS parser, on the left. On the right, we’ve got announcements, like before, but also some of the recent forum posts. Then I added a nicer menu bar and updated the Director Online logo at the top. I’m pretty pleased with it.
The new menu bar also includes a link to the newest section, the Wiki. A wiki is a sort of online encyclopedia. But it can be edited by anyone. So users both take and give to the wiki. Could be pretty neat after a lot of info comes in. Could suck if someone tries to deface it over and over again. Successful wikis are self-policing, though.
