LowEndBox v2.0 is LIVE!

jbilohjbiloh Administrator

LowEndBox 2.0 is now live.

https://lowendbox.com

I'm very proud and excited to be releasing the new design. I believe it brings LowEndBox into the 2020's and makes the site more readable, content more digestible, improves the links/cohesion between LEB and LET (you'll notice that recent LET offers are now on the home page of LEB), and more!

Just because v2.0 is launched doesn't mean we won't stop fixing and improving things from here... so if you have feedback please share it!

Thanks to everyone who contributed their time and suggestions to help make version 2.0 great.

    We think so too.

    Congrats @jbiloh! Also to the design team and the code team! LEB 2.0 accomplishes the goals of showing the breadth of LEB's content and also having content persist longer on the landing page. I bet LEB's views and SEO presence will increase significantly as a result of LEB 2.0. Congrats again! <3

    Nice work... congrats :)

    You can add box-shadow to posts to make it more cleaner.

  • raviravi Member

    1) Header and main should have equal left margin.

    2) Main left margin AND Sidebar right space should be equal.

    This two can be fixed by modifying this css code to:

    #content { margin: 30px 360px 0 30px; }

    Nice! Looks just like the demo did with the subdoma.. nvm

  • ehhthingehhthing Member

    Will be honest, I thought the old design was better. Maybe it's just me, but it kind of had a charm to it. Much more indicative of what websites used to look like before everyone started going for "flat for the sakeness of flat" design method.

  • jmaxwelljmaxwell Member

    Will there be a mobile version too? I don’t see any difference now.

  • FranciscoFrancisco Member, Top Host, Host Rep

    feels like digg 2.0...

    Eh, why the hell I expected anything else?

    Mobile post view still broken.
    Desktop main page looks like a fucking gallery rather than blog - images takes more than text.
    Oh, not only main page, seems like shorter blog entries are amazing too - try to find "content" here :D https://lowendbox.com/blog/whats-better-than-a-1gb-vps-in-tokyo-for-under-5-month-ill-tell-you/

    To be honest, desktop view isn’t better ether. Earlier it was just a bit outdated style but now it looks cluttered and confusing. Really need some box-shadow or whatever that is called. Posts could have better pictures so that the thumbnails would look nice on homepage.

    @jbiloh Something broke because I'm still getting the old design.

    I'm getting the old design, too.

  • tronyxtronyx Member

    Nice design 👍

  • The site looks like it is from the 2000s with a boxed design.

    This.
    The images are far too big, it's actually off putting to even look at the page for more than 5 seconds due to image overload.

    While I like colors and boxyness, I don't like that it's too wide, I don't like moving my head.

    Holy shit, that's so much worse.

  • Yeah, i really don't like it. Makes it really hard to see/glance at articles and offers.

  • How about adding a tag for Singapore on the home page?

    New content will have higher quality images so that it looks better.

    We will look into the box shadowing as suggested by a few others.

    Let me know what you think should change.

    @TobiasFhtagn said:

    The problem with the old design is that tons of content got lost forever within the site. That's not the case anymore.
