Redesign of WoK site

Post by korexus » Tue Sep 30, 2008 8:39 pm

The phpNuke framework is old, tired and imposes many annoying points on players. (eg you can't use brackets when adding a message.)

The site needs a rebuild to look pretty and be easier to modify in the future,

preliminary work visible at http://new.kaomaris.com but none of it works yet (most links don't even exist!)

This will include a rebuild of both engines, though the redesign could be launched without them.

How preliminary is the new design?
Question everything.

Very. The design itself (as in what it looks like) is something I've not really looked at yet. - I'm just using the style from the old WoK site.

My focus is on an easier to use structure, so that the site is simple for new users to find their way round and for current members to navigate quickly eg kaomaris.com/mygames to see the games you're playing in, instead of the current mess of a url.

This is a long term project which is likely to proceed in fits and bursts as I get some spare hours, but I'll keep you posted and feedback on what is there is welcome.


Chris.
