HWzone, the Israeli computer site, will celebrate next month 16 years Since its opening in 2001 as a breakthrough Israeli hardware site, until it has become a brand name in the Israeli computer community, and in fact throughout the world. So what's going to be here today?
Last year we mainly told you about the past and the innovations on the way, and this year we are very happy to put these innovations - at last - into practice, and to keep moving forward!
So, what's new in HWzone?
In recent years, all the site's infrastructures continued to undergo refinements and optimizations for improvement Performence - And today the zoo is in its best condition ever, when it completely overcame the problematic period it passed several years ago. The site is accessible, nimble, lightweight, and fully available on both personal and mobile computers.
And now, with the right infrastructure, you can start talking about the real innovations!
A true division into sections
The site's four main sections (prostitutes) - Computers, Gadgets, Gaming and-Technology - They are now 4 Home On their own. Each section of the section will present not only the articles that belong to that section, but also the new / hot discussions in the forums that are relevant to that section, and in fact will serve as a designated entry gate for those who have a burning room.
You guys in the gaming section? Favorite Gaming Page Main Page - Get quick and direct access to all the content you care about! Interested mainly in computers and hardware? Gadgets? In technology? We have a dedicated front page for you all! Interested in all areas without discrimination? No problem - the main page of the site will still show you all the content, with a convenient highlight of the section to which each article or forum discussion is associated.
Articles: "Everything New - Don't Miss Nothing"
Today, next to each new item that you have not yet read, a "new" icon will appear, which will allow you to easily identify the new content on the site since your last visit, and in general. In the main menu at the top of the site, you will see next to each small icon section showing the amount of new articles available to you in that section. Clicking on the icon will lead to a column centering on all new articles, with the option to filter by site sections and option to mark all articles as read - in order to reset the meter.
Forums: "Just what interests you"
The main page of the forums has been refreshed, and now, instead of defaulting on the standard forum structure that includes hierarchical and outdated categories / forums and only then a discussion of discussions, it highlights what really matters - the discussions themselves - and presents them directly.
The new display allows you to see Just what interests you - On the side of the page you can always see the list of forums, which will actually be used as a list of "interests" - where you can mark the specific forums that interest you, and the system (which will always remember your choice when you return to the main forum page in the future) will only show you discussions from the forums that you have chosen in a concentrated way.
Interested only in hardware and computers and games, but not gadgets? Highlight the categories / forums you like and leave unchecked categories / forums you like - and you will no longer see the discussions on the front page of the forums that do not interest you.
We have no doubt that even if this method requires easy adaptation, it is a more orderly and convenient method - and we think you will love it very much. If you still prefer to go back to the classic display method, you can easily do this by clicking the relevant icon at the top of the main page, which allows a quick switch between the two display methods.
Do you have anything to tell? We all want to hear!
The new Bazon has a greater emphasis on your content, surfers.
The connection between our site and our forums has become deeper than ever - the hot discussions from forums have taken a prominent place on the homepage, the talkback from articles is in sync with the forum discussions and you will receive instant updates when you respond, and the process for opening a new discussion has become simpler and easier than ever - one click on the central text box In your "personal area" and you will immediately open a window where you can share everything that comes to your mind, choose a title and topic (because it still needs some order ..) and that's it - your new post in the air. Just like posting a Facebook status;)
You can also attach links (eg YouTube videos or images, פייסבוק, And more), which are automatically converted into your status window and displayed visually without the unnecessary and outdated need to use "forum tags" as before.
