How the f!@# do you edit your profile on TuxRadar.com?

It is one of the least user friendly layouts I have used in a long time. A login and logout area in the footer of the page. I've clicked on every menu item, logged out, logged in, used the search box, guessed at obvious links but there is no way to access or edit your profile.

I'm serious about the apparent decline of the Linux Format web sites with the opening of TuxRadar.com. The front page of linuxformat.com/linuxformat.co.uk has a message that a new front page will appear that is two months old. What's gone wrong at LXF Towers?

Perhaps it is a Future Publications thing. Digital Camera Mag has been promising a new site since Sept 2008.

Hey!

There's no way to access or edit your profile. That's because there *is* no profile. We almost left accounts out entirely because there's there's nothing you can do with them - we don't use avatars, we don't use signatures, we don't have polls, and neither do we intend to at this time. If we let you edit your account, the only thing you'd be able to do is change your password.

As for the new LXF site, work is definitely under way - Mike is working on it full time right now, and it will be up as soon as he's done. Towy: email me and I'll set your password for you.

Despite the double bank holiday here in the UK, we've just finished the latest LXF and in a few days will finish another special edition of the magazine, this time written from scratch. I know you want more website work to happen immediately, but websites are *not* our top priority - making a kick-ass Linux magazine is our top priority.

Also, rather than just revamping the front page as I mentioned, we're switching to a new site engine that'll be cleaner and faster. We'll still have the forums, archives, blog, wiki and other content -- but the new engine will make things run smoother and give us more room to try out new ideas.

As Paul says, the mag is our #1 priority. We're only a small team and my main focus is on making the best possible LXF DVDs, so I just have small pockets of time to work on the website. But the new site is coming along well -- good things come to those who wait Wink We should have most of it in place by the end of next week.

I just thought there must be a profile (signature block) because of the login, so you knew who posted replies instead of 3 gazillion "Anonymous Penguins" Wink

I know the magazine is number one priority and then the LXF Specials, but just a little bit of extra information would keep the mushrooms happy Very Happy

Laughing - New Content Management System? New Forum Software? I'm sure Mike is totally bald trying that!

Best way to go --- patching up an existing file/file set, if it is large, can really end up turning into a mess. Best to just save it then rewrite, using the parts that are still considered functional from the previous.
