Nice and practical .... what more?
The overall impression is "Fresh and new", looks pretty good!
The new product selector works like a charm, a small hint in the window when opening "show/hide parameters" that you need to double click an item could help. The "Download Spreadsheet" option works with OpenOffice. That's pretty good.
Being a fan of FRam I find it a bit lengthy to get to it when starting from Cypress home...
Probably forgotten for this test-version: I miss the CY8CKIT-044 in the overview.
Great idea on adding the tip in the Product Selector Guide. I'll get that added in the future. We tried to find a mix of controls that would work if you were on a computer or tablet.
Can you help me understand where the CY8CKIT-044 is missing from?
Thanks again, Robyn
From here -> Home, then click on "Kits" (I admire the on-line spell-check!!! will save me lots of edits!!) and you will be brought to this overview (http://www.cypress.com/cypress-store) where I miss the -044 kit.
I cannot put a link to a (Cypress) website. In the old editor I could highlight a piece of text and make a link out of it using the menu-bar of the editor. That feature is absolutely needed for the forum (although even some of the Cypress staff didn't use it)
I was too hasty. an external link like this one http://www.conrad.de/ce/de/product/443950/Entwicklungsboard-Cypress-Semiconductor-Cy8CKIT-050B?ref=searchDetail should be shortened using the above mentioned way. While editing I cannot see that the system recognizes the link, probably to avoid the problem of leaving this page when accidentally clicking on it.
Hi Bob, We're checking on the hyperlink button. It's in my version of the editor for comments so I'm wondering if we've accidently turned it off for non Cypress users. We'll get it turned back on if that's the case! -Robyn
just saw the new experimental site. On a first look it makes a good impression. I appreciate that the new site seems to be a bit faster than the current one, especially in the forum section.
Will there be a private message system?
As Bob posted in #3, I also find it a bit lengthy to get where I need to. That's better in the old "home". Why? Most times, I go to your pages for finding information on a certain product. Only aside this, I look for news from time to time. The new version forces me to too much scrolling and reading.
Bob, You should have a few more options in the edit menu now. No Emojis yet... I'll see if I can get it added in the future. :) -Robyn
We won't have a PM system upon launch but it is something we're looking at for the future. Thanks for taking a look around and I'm glad you like it so far!
Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that the new changes aren't helping you. We'll take this into account as we continue to update the site.
I did not seeing add friend or follow option in user profile view. It would be a great if we have add friend option with techinical chat/Direct message.
The new site looks fresh, and is much more responsive than the old one, lets hope that stays the same when it's launched to the world.
If anything, the only thing I don't like is the amount of whitespace, my own preference is for less whitespace and more tightly arranged controls - but that's just me. (See attached image, red stuff is my comments)
Also, everytime I post a question or a reply in the forum I get an error at the top of the page that says (something like) "Failed to send email. Contact the site administrator".
