It has been sometime since I last redesigned the Joomlabamboo site and for at least the last six months I've been itching to get in and do it again. Back in December I deployed the new template for our knowledgebase area and while I have some grand plans for a complete revisioning of the whole JB site I thought I would spend an hour or two and push the knowledge base template onto the blog and give it a tiny twist.
In the past I've really wanted to keep each area of the site within a uniform design but more and more I'm noticing companies that have a completely new design for the various areas of their site. I think if it's done well then it can make for quite an eclectic experience for the user and really help to personalise the different focusses that a site may have.
There are still a few things that I want to implement like a footer area, site map and I'm tossing up whether to add more to the sidebar but personally like it as a simple fixed element. A major consideration was whetehr or not to move to a new commenting system. Until I find a way to port K2 comments to a more elaborate system Ill stick with the K2 core.
The new design is also hopefully going to prompt me to write some more posts as I've been a little slack recently. In the meantime I hope you like the redesign and watch out the for the new JB design in the next few weeks, months or possibly years.blog comments powered by Disqus
