Internet News   Internet News : New Amiga Future Page Online
   posted by AndreasM on 12-Sep-2007 10:10:51 (1859 reads)
The last weeks we have put much time and money into the Amiga Future homepage.
The time has come. Yesterday evening the new page went online.

Click read more

The new homepage automatically detects the language setting on the user's computer. If set to German it will load the German page and if set to English it will load the English one respectively. Of course registered users have the choice to set the language differently in the page settings.
By the way all registered users should check their settings. Lots of stuff has been added.

The search engines of the whole homepage have been improved. Now it is possible to search every database on every site.

A new gallery has been installed which allows subsections. This makes the gallery containing over 1000 pictures clearly arranged.

The new gallery allows to display pictures directly within the forum and the articles.

A new article database has been installed aswell. It is a lot faster than before and displays the articles better.

And finally a new download database has been installed. It is now possible to describe the downloads. We only need someone to help us out with that. :)

Now you can add comments to the downloads and report mistakes.

We installed a new lexicon for the news section and forum posts. Nearly everything in the article database can be viewed as a PDF document.

There are lots of more features. You can choose whether you want to see German oder English news. This setting includes the search engines.

There will be some more improvements in the next few weeks. We would like to know from you what to change.

Because of that we started a poll on the Amiga Future homepage.

Amiga Future looks for help for the editorial office.

We look for (German or English) users having a good knowledge of the Amiga and some free time.

If you are interested the please write an email to using the subject "Amiga Future".

We need people for the homepage aswell.

We already have a huge download section with full versions on the Amiga Future homepage.

Now we look for someone to help us out regularly or once. It is all about the check of some downloads and writing a small description of the program including the requirements.

Besides of the we search for someone to support us in getting new full verions. Especially we need someone to look for the current copyright owners (i.e. Psygnosis) and to ask them for a license for the Amiga Future.

Other sections of the homepage need help aswell.

For example we need a user who takes care of the link database. It is about extending the content.

Besidess of that we are looking for a PHP programmer to write us some small scripts to ease the work with the homepage.

"message_die() was called multiple times. This isn't supposed to happen. Was message_die() used in page_tail.php?"

... is the message I get when trying to enter

And concerning copyrights of Psygnosis games, I asked Ian Hetherington (via his new company) for SotB status a couple of months ago, and they said they were gonna look into it. No answear so far though. Figured he would be the right person to ask since he was involved in all relevant companies (Reflection, Psygnosis and SCEE).

Nice work but as for me the content of the news item (on the main page) is too small. I can clearly see the news title and poster's name. Due to small font the conent is not likely to be noticed easy. I would have made a title of the news font smaller (and so the bar where the title is) and made a content of the news font larger.
