We’ve just taken the wraps off our new design for WordPress.com from Matt Thomas, so come check it out. This one incorporates a lot of what we’ve learned over the past year with the old design, which was actually supposed to be a temporary placeholder.
In this new design we’ve added a bit of color, more prominent use of avatars, better highlighting of popular content, and hot tags so people can see some of the latest posts in popular topics. (In different languages!)
If you want to see a cool Easter egg, resize your browser window to make it smaller in width. You’ll see the top tags drop from the sidebar to below the rest of the design. 🙂
We’re still working out a bug here and there, so give us a day or two to shake things out, but hopefully this new home page is faster and more useful for you.
