Wikidot insider sneak preview: Wikidot awaits a major graphical redesign. What we are currently working on is a totally new front page for www.wikidot.com — cleaner, more organized, more friendly… Just better.
Lukasz has been working on it for a while, but this picture was taken when he just started 2 weeks ago, this is why he is smiling — he looks much worse now after 24th iteration of the theme and generating another set of buttons ;-)
Today we joined our forces — Lukasz, Piotr and me — to push the design forward, create necessary interactive elements and put more life to it. Here is what we ended with by the end of the day:
This is still not finished, but very very close. Since it will be the theme for the front page for Wikidot, it has to be perfect as much as possible. Also, My Account, AdSense management panel, login and create account screens will get the new theme.
We would like to go live with this theme at the same time we introduce the Pro subscription to our users.
If you want to watch the progress live, please visit the test site at http://testtheme.wikidot.com. I hope Lukasz does not make this wiki private anytime soon. And I hope he does not kill me for publishing this blog post ;-)
