Really like the new design. Has a very nice feel.

Well done - remember how much work it was last time. This new design definitely fits with the times - as in less is more. You have taken away some of the functionality but made a site which feels much more coherent.

Still finding my way around the community stuff - doesn't seem that easy to create a new blog for example but haven't had my morning coffee yet - but think it feels sleek and clean.

Would also be great to get those blogging tools we had been asking for since the last redesign - insert link tool, add picture etc - but hopefully that is on the wish list from tech at some point.

Well done again - hopefully this new design will give me the impetus to keep my blog update a little more regularly!

  • Morning Andrew, What a nice surprise! If you click your name at the top right and then click blog on the bottom left you'll see 'add post' as an option.

  • I'd echo Andrew's comments. I like the faster loading and, generally speaking, the design but I too struggled to find where to start a new blog entry. I'm also a little sad that new blogs don't appear on the front page.

    I also find the fixed-width design makes the site the widest of any that I customarily use by quite a margin, requiring a browser resize when I go that tab, and back again when I leave it, which is a bit of a faff.....

  • hey Roger.
    Think I have spotted a bug as when I click on my name it takes me to the same page as if I had clicked on "Edit Profile".
    i.e http://www.zdnet.co.uk/member-services/edit-profile/

    I think this was causing the confusion as I am guessing clicking my name should take me to the screen I get to after clicking on "my blog" on this edit profile page.

    i.e http://www.zdnet.co.uk/member-services/blog/

    But even this feels like an extra step as what I really want to see when I click on my name is my blog page which is this one:
