It could be worse.  I'm at the "CEO" rank and that makes me think of the bullet-headed CEO in Dilbert.  IMO would be much better to have technical ranks like "guru" and "wizard".

What's the point of user rank. Try not to disparage "rookie" comments, I doubt they're from rookies!

New Look - Opinion

I have a few suggestions concerning the opinion column.

Click ALL OPINION and a list comes up.  Each entry has the date and the title listed, but not the author.  The author is very important for an opinion artlcle.  The author should be listed.

Also, you only provide 2 sorting options, recent or most commented.  A qualifier option would be appreciated, that is sort by author.  With sort by author deslected, it would operate the same as now.  Select sort by author and the sort switches to a 2-level sort, sorted first by author, and then within the section for each author by recent or most commented, as selected.  This would make it easy to check up on posts by a favorite author.

Hey phononscattering, we've circled back and fixed the homepage such that the header is smaller and you can get to see more of the content on initial page load - regardless of the screen size, but especially in the case of laptops/tablets. Many thanks for the feedback and hope the mod helps. We're definitely happy to have it implemented. Best for now,

P

You can always bookmark articles by clicking "Save It". The downside being, there's no way to "Unsave" once you're finished.

AFAIK, the search only scans articles. You can search comments separately by navigating to the comments section and finding the Search link (admittedly, a bit convoluted).

Super clutter...

I'm a EETimes reader for 6 years now. Did not really like the previous version of the site. As for the new layout I'm not totally happy as it seems like there's no way of looking and searching of the old articles / posts (or at least it is done in some cryptic way). I was wondering if you could have all the history shown with dates of original post / articles and sort it the way you want (tables with search options were invented for this). I also find it really hard to come back to the article I was reading say a day before - if it does not appear on the quick tabs it looks like its almost gone (this article was on the tabs fortunately). The whole appearance of the site looks like some version on Amazon (total clutter) - I would much prefer if you guys could have more Google like approach (maybe have a button to switch if somebody likes this cluttered version). I'd love to see a professional forum that you can easily navigate where all the info would be in one table (so you could search by say: date of original post, date of last comment, title, author, design category) with no flying tabs, buttons, sections, thumbnails...

Hello,

I'm sorry you've had problems with the site. We have fixed the IE10 login issue, it was due to IE's stricter security settings.

Thanks

Bill

The new posting scheme requires frequent relogin. From my notebook, I have to allow it to remember me, whereas from my phone nothing proceeds after entering my login.

@Karen...hello again from the EELife fan from hell......

The old EElife had a banner showing the last 10 or so items posted.  Then we went to the last version which had 4.  Now we have none.  Is this progress??  There is
  • still no EELife link at the top
  • still no caption comp link
  • and the EELife box down the home page has not changed in a week

Pleae tell me you're still working on these?? :-)
