Very stripped down and straight forward. It took a few seconds to be sure I was in the right place, but it's nice.

The main menu was done with sans serif fonts, and that was really good. Now I see the fonts are back to serif. Not so good. IŽd like it done with sans. It would be perfect. :)

I rather like the new look myself. It's very clean and uncluttered, I especially like how the columns are arranged versus the previous incarnation.

i like the new look :) but i don`t like the 4 news post on the main page.. not that the posts are bad.. just the number ;) can`t you change that to atleast 10 or 25?

I haven't posted in a while, but I have been keeping up with the news on the site, and at first I thought I typed in the wrong URL :).... I love it, it's clean, simplistic, and easy on the eyes, however like markg85 said, I think we could do with a few more articles per page... keep up the good work man!

Where are the articles form before June 5? I don't see a link to archives or previous articles on the main page.

are you guys using a new database or something? cause the current news items are not in the news archive:
http://www.universetoday.com/am/exec/search.cgi?start=0&perpage=1000000000&template=index/default.html
(it`s a little trick i found out with the display results.. pleace don`t change it cause i really like that.

just noticed.. put the UT logo in the header on the main page : http://www.bautforum.com/images/misc/utlogo.jpg that will make the header a bit less.. empty :P

Yeah, at least specify which (http://www.surbiclan.myby.co.uk/) version (http://surbiclan.verygames.net/) :D ;)

Seriously though, I like the new look too, another improvement!

I agree with previous posters: the newest version of the Universe Today home page is missing navigation information. In particular, the line of links to other pages needs to be filled out with more entries, including a Search URL and a link to the news archive.

If I were to stumble across the site's home page as it is right now, I suspect I wouldn't bother coming back.

The light blue and sans-serif graphic design looks quite good, though.

It's coming it's coming. I'm moving my entire site over from the older publishing system to Wordpress. I'll be bringing my entire archive over, but that's going to take a little while.

You can still access the old site here:
http://www.universetoday.com/index.html

I'll be making a few more tweaks, including some of your comments. Give me a few days.

no pleace take all the time you need.. it`s better to have a good organized site than a fast made site.. but please keep in a option to view the entire database :) that feature is really awsome!!
