Possible Web Site Improvements

Even if the Developers of PerlMonks could take offense about this issue I will very frankly suggest you possible improvements on technical side.

https://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1223053
I have been told there were many Post on this issue before ...
- I could not find any of them.
=> By the flood of Posts stuff gets flooded away.
=> You can't find your way around on PM when you for some information.
Solution: Tagging - Setting Tags on discussions helps the visitor navigate the site and read more information.
(It helps you very strongly on Google as well.)

The PM Theme needs a new modern Mockup.
You might implement:

  • MVC
  • Templates

    Your post sounds like "Hi, I'm new here -- and by the way, your site looks like crap, and you've written the code wrong." Also, I'm curious to know how can you tell that MVC and Templates aren't being used on the site already.

    Anyway, you've got folks attention .. as has been pointed out, you can specify your own CSS to change the way the site looks, and if you're interested in working on the site code, you can contact the pmdev group about that. However, my understanding is that it takes a while to get into that group, and you have to first demonstrate that you have some Perl chops.

    This is a close-knit community -- so don't expect to fly in and immediately start changing the site. Some of us have been here a while, and like the site just the way it is. It's not gorgeous or flashy, but it's most useful, as well as being an excellent little corner of the Internet.

    Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

      smells trollish if you ask me.

      Nothing easier than creating a new account and claiming to be a misunderstood newbie.

      I have already seen the Super Search

      Found 50 nodes roughly between 1999-10-04 and 2000-08-10 (searched 2. +23% of DB). where any text contains "design" Press to continue searching remaining 97.77% of DB. Link to preload this search: [href://?node_id=3989;BIT=design;submit=S +earch;D]
      Found 50 nodes roughly between 2000-08-10 and 2000-04-22 (searched 1.5 +2% of DB). where any text contains "theme" Press to continue searching remaining 0.70% of DB. Please be patient after submitting your search. Link to preload this search: [href://?node_id=3989;BIT=theme;D]

      That way I got already tired before I found anything suitable.
      which would be in technical terms:

      • not User friendly
      • not Google friendly

      The nice way about Tags and Categories is that on the currently reading Posts it suggests you the right terms to read further
      And on the Backend Side it leds you display related Posts.

      • for further reading for the User
      • for further crawling for Google

        Another example for a Search I did.
        https://perlmonks.org/?node=template+toolkit

        Found 50 nodes roughly between 2018-09-27 and 2016-09-23 (searched 4.15% of DB).
        where title contains all of "template", "toolkit"
        Pressto continue searching remaining 95.85% of DB.
        Please be patient after submitting your search.
        Link to preload this search: ?node_id=3989;HIT=template%20toolkit
        
        The Result is filled up with one Thread mostly.

        But I can't find any answer to my concrete Question
        Do you use the Template::Toolkit on here ?

        This is an Example what Perl still can do on the Web nowadays:

    Tags are a good idea and could be easily retroactively implemented automatically by counting words in node titles.

    As for the buzzwords I think you're barking up the wrong tree:
