A New Look for CodePlex

A New Look for CodePlex

  • Comments 34

As I mentioned a month ago, we have been working on improving the overall experience for the CodePlex community.  Today, I am happy to announce the release of CodePlex’s new look!  Our goal was to refresh the look and feel of the site to a modern Metro-inspired theme.

This is the first step in our continued investment to improve the usability within the site.  Please let us know your feedback!  Also, if you see any bugs or something that doesn’t look quite right in the new pages contact us with the link.

Here are some highlights of the new look released today:

Redesigned Home Pages

We wanted to make it easier to find common actions within CodePlex.  So now within the public home, and your logged in home page, you will find large tiles that take you to common actions such as creating or finding a project.

Simple Project Creation

We also made it easier to create new projects.  Previously to create a project it was multiple fields, agreement checkboxes, and a CAPTCHA, spread out over three pages.

Now, creating a project is two fields and selection of your source control preference.  Much simpler.

We have more things coming, and as always we are very focused on providing users what they ask for, so continue submitting your ideas and voting for feature suggestions!  You also can always find us on Twitter at @codeplex or @mgroves84

  • Nice new chrome guys. I dig it.

  • I am having a big problem.  I did not see it mentioned here so I thought I would post it.  I cannot see any details right below each category.  It looks like the detail is way at the bottom.  What do I need to do to get the screen to display correctly?

  • @Waterbug forever, based on your description it looks like you may be using IE7. CodePlex no longer supports IE7.

  • I have been reading this site for quite a while. It gave much insight about this current issue. Many issues have got new perspective here. Posts and design are nice. I would be thankful if you keep on posting here.
