in thread Site facelift?

perl.com perldoc, and many other perl sites were nicely rehauled recently.

IMHO perl.org looks better than before, but I still haven't figured out what that annoying, fixed toolbar on top of the perldoc site is supposed to do for me. I can't remember using it a single time, and yet it eats up a sizable portion of my screen, and is annoying by not behaving like the rest of the site.

Which is exactly what I meant with not sacrificing usabilty for a new UI.

Yes, perlmonks is slow. I've never denied it, and it sucks. If somebody changes that substantially and with long lasting effort, I'll buy them a beer at the next YAPC we both attend. Every effort on performance is very welcome.

Yes, a modern UI would be nice. If it doesn't introduce annoying stuff just to be modern.

    OT, but there is a preference on perldoc.perl.org to make the moving toolbar fixed (I use it that way).

    How to make perldoc.perl.org resizable too!

    Stylish CSS overrides: It mangles some of the graphics since the last tweaks changed things, but still makes the site usable (more horizontal room, more vertical room, dynamic width, less pointless pictures) and with no floaty bar covering things.

    I'll take functional over pretty any day, but it is still sad that perldoc has gone from "functional and nice" to "functional or pretty".
