A New Coat of Paint

jsmorley » September 18th, 2017, 6:12 pm

As you may have noticed, the Rainmeter Main Site has been completely re-worked to be more "modern" and useful.

We have to give a huge

THANK YOU

to user MarcoPixel, who designed and implemented the new site. Really outstanding work, very creative and more than we could have wished for!

I visited the portal before I saw this post, and oh-wow! For a while I thought I clicked on the wrong bookmark.

VERY NICE!

Thank you, MarcoPixel :D

Just curious, are the forums and docs eventually going to get visual upgrades as well?

Just an information.

For me, newly designed opening page of Rainmeter site is totally a mess (see atached file) in my default browser, InternetExplorer 11 of Windows10. When the browser is of full-screen, no problem. Further, Microsoft Edge and Chrome have no such problem at all.

Is IE11 already out-of-date browser? :-)

I don't have such problems, in IE11 on Windows 10, everything looks as it should. No mess at all...

The problem was that the CSS was not reacting properly to IE 11 when you made the window size small enough to trigger the "I'm on mobile" functionality. Try it now, it should be fine.

Thanks for reporting.

Hi jsmorley, and balala

Yes, it depends on the window size of IE11. And... when I tried to confirm its behavior, the problem is gone! Probably the change you did for the page is successful. Thanks for response.
