New Home page up

29 Dec 2013, 15:28

We have a new home page layout primarily due to efforts from an anonimous poster. The new layout is fresh and while full of content it is clean and to the point.

I encourage you all to give it a look and offer feedback

I want to thank JoeDF for working out the google search

Really good! But the next-to-last line should be centered, too.

guest contribution. i made only minor modifications and used as-is. I wish they would say who they are because it really is great work.

Yes. The design is really great!
I wonder if we will get to know this "stranger" better some day... :D

I'm digging the new page. Very clean design.

The AutoHotkey v2 link is a little confusing. It points to an Alpha Branch of AutoHotkey_L which may be V2 but it doesn't give anyone any sense of what it's about. That's the only link I found to be confusing.

Might also be worth pointing out that Iron AHK has been abandoned as far as I can tell.

Great job all around.

I also like the new design and the custom search :) Good job by JoeDF and the anonymous poster

A couple of details about the custom search:
  • The logo (322x78) is not always legible (it depends how the browser resizes the image). Perhaps an also custom version (124x30) should be used.
  • I'm not sure showing "All the results" by default is the best option. Personally I'd prefer seeing the documentation results first. Also, I'm not clear on the usefulness of the "Images" search tab.
  • And this is trivial but it nags me a little bit: Would it be possible to make the "Did you mean ..." dissapear? I've seen it for example in "User Sites" and "Legacy Documentation" when searching for "stringsplit")
Regards,
Antonio

P.S. What's the proper board to suggest changes to the boards? I'm familiar with phpBB and I may have a couple of ideas.

Re: New Home page up

Nevertheless it would be more newbie friendly to have something like this:
... by hand or a macro recorder. (for example MacroCreator)
As I'm already nitpicking: This text from homepage might also be confusing/misleading to newbies:
... by hand or a macro recorder.
and
Macro Creator - An advanced AutoHotkey Script Recorder and Writer.
As a NOOB, I would be confused about this: What's the difference between Macro Recorder and Script Recorder? :shock: Is there a difference between Macros and Scripts?

I say they're both misnomers. It records keystrokes and mouse-clicks and produces a script. It does not record macros or scripts. At least it could be consistent.

I think that "An advanced AutoHotkey Script Recorder and Writer." is a pretty useless description anyway. "Creates a script by recording keystrokes etc." would be closer to the truth.

I dont really know that there will ever be a "Correct" wording. I have made a few minor edits. I am willing to continue to hone the wording
