    Default Revamped Irish Times Website

    The Irish Times have revamped their website: Breaking News | Irish & International Headlines | The Irish Times
    What do you all think? It looks like a bit of a confused jumble to me - poorly laid out. The title text seems oddly small to me.
    Additionally, I understand that the introduction of the new website coincides with a new data management system being implemented at the Times, whereby, amongst other innovations, when articles are sub-edited they are simultaneously uploaded to the website.

    Will be avoiding it.

    Their cheerleading of the property binge that resulted in the bankruptcy of this country, revealed them to be completely compromised.

    Cheerleading the cause of the gombeen interests calling bthe shots in this country.

    Let them keep up these stunts.

    Does Dan McLaughlin still write for them ?
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    All of those points refer to the content of the Irish Times. This thread concerns the new layout of the website.

    Yuck ! That's awful.
    Like the dumbed down BBC website, compromised for the sake of viewing on tablets.

    Looks really tabloid-y.

    They couldn't decide what colour to make that bar across the top, so they made it all colours.

    Horrible disjointed mess.

    Looks terrible. Not befitting the 'paper of record'.
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    Indeed. It's growing on me already... I can barely remember what the old site looked like already.... Also, apropos a recent thread regarding this site, the layout makes more sense with ad-block turned off.

    Awful on my phone.

    Would like to hear the story of 'why' they did that.

    I don't like it. It's cluttered and there are too many sub-menus.

    My old routine was a quick scroll through the front page, a quick scroll through the Irish news section and a quick look thought the letters and opinion pieces. The new format makes it more arduous to do that and the quality of the paper isn't good enough to justify a slow and thorough browse everyday.

    Thumbs down.

    Analyzer's just a bot set up to make ad hominem attacks which are triggered by key words. It doesn't actually read anything.

    Don't like the new site. It's like they saw the poor job the Indo did with theirs and asked themselves: How can we make that a little bit worse? Too cluttered. The last site was actually perfect.
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.
