New Xen.org Site for Review

Xen Community:

As many of you know, the current www.xen.org website requires a great deal of work to keep updated as it consists of a series of html text files. Last year, I worked with several community members to create a better layout within the existing structure to assist web users in finding information in a sensible manner.

I am now taking the next step in porting the existing web structure to a hosted model where I am able to edit and manipulate the site without text files and a great deal of CSS knowledge. This new tool also allows for simple design changes with a point and click and tighter integration with social networking tools.

Please take a look at the new site http://xenhypervisor.squarespace.com/ and add your feedback in the Comments or directly to me.

Finally, please remember that not all sites such as the Wiki, Mailing Lists, or Bugzilla have the new look & feel as that requires additional effort and I want to get community buy-in on the new site first.

    The layout’s good, but the font is hard to read.

    Peter: I chose the Fonts based on the recommendation from this site: http://www.webdesignerwall.com/tutorials/typographic-contrast-flow/ (see quote below). Do you have another choice that you like better or is it the font size? Thanks.

    “Contrast can be achieved by mixing different typeface classifications. However, due to limited web safe fonts, there are only two main classifications commonly used: serif and sans-serif. Serif = Georgia & Sans-Serif = Arial
    Generally, to create a contrast between the headings and the body text, we use serif font for the headings and sans-serif font for the body, or vice versa.”
