@doc Thanks for your feedback. I'm always a little discconcerted when a website or even a bricks and mortar store changes things around and I can't find the things I'm used to. But I agree that once I overecome that initial "Hey where is everything?" I quickly forget about the old design. We think this new design for EE Times is simpler, cleaner, and easier to navigate and we're glad you do too!

@David Thank you for your rant. Our developers are following this thread avidly as I am as your feedback on what works, what isn't working, what is working but is not intuitive to users, and anything else you care to weigh in on is incredibly useful. We are pulling together an FAQ for users that we think will answer many of the questions we've been getting, but I will address your comments here as well:

1. Messages. You are correct about how they work. Thanks for explaining it to the community at large.

2. Comments Default. I will check with developers. It's a good idea.

3. EE Life will be back in the top nav bar. We're also threading more EE-Life content throughout the site so you can find, for example, an EE Life blog about the Internet of Things in the Internet of Things DesignLine.

4. I noticed that the rascal of a widget for the cartoon did disappear off the website. Developers are working on getting it back, and once I can see it again I'll address your comments about how the submissions display.

I am so glad to hear that you are a fan of EE Life and not to worry - we are working feverisly with our developers to get the navigation working correctly again and I will be updating this post once that we fix the bug. Better yet, you're going to see more "EE Life" type-content threaded throughout the EE Times site, as we are aligning blogger-engineers with our technical topics. For example (and it's just one of dozens) Jonny Doin, an hardware/firmware engineer who works for an industrial weighing equipment company, is now blogging under our Industrial Control DesignLine.

...my picture is gone and I can't upload it again. There is always this error message: "There was a problem processing your file. Images must be less than 5 Megabytes". My file is less than 7 kilobytes! Everything else is fine.

Under each comment is a link "POST MESSAGE" and this will enable you to put in a new comment (rather than a reply to an existing comment).  I'd agree that there is no logic in having to use an existing comment to post a new (and unrelated) comment.  It took me a while to work this out as well - fortunately if you spend any time on All Programmable Planet (which has had this "look" for some time) you get used to it.  Still defies logic though.

New Look: Comments and News
DrQuine   7/1/2013 11:24:57 PM

The method for making a "Comment" upon a story eludes me.  All I can manage is to "Reply" to a random existing comment. If I click on "Comment" at the top of the story, it seems to take me to "View Comments". If I do select to "reply" (which in email means a one to one communication), I may "post" my comment and it becomes public. It seems like we have too many different words in use here, which don't seem to fit our prior experience. On the "News" front, I did learn the trick. Click on the red "News" button at the top (ignore the dropdown menu) and the chronological listing appears.  That way I'm sure not to miss anything.

New EE Times: Missing the original layout
sridhar.ps   7/1/2013 9:21:48 PM
NO RATINGS
The original layout had articles neatly bucketed into 'Business News', 'Technology', 'Design News' and some 'How to' articles. 

The new one is a little too simplistic and actually has less content on some of the above categories. 

Am i the only one feeling this way ?
