A new Homepage for mozillians.org

This post originally appeared here . 

The Mozillians Community directory has a new design for the home page and the style has been updated across the whole site. The code was updated, bugs were filed and fixed and it has gone live. This is a brief summary of the features that are in this release, enjoy:

A redesigned homepage

Public search: A few months ago we rolled out the ability to have public profiles, and now you can search for those profiles without logging into the site. If you haven’t already, now is a good time to edit your profile so it shows up in public search results. This will make it easier for Mozillians as well as your friends and family to see your profile.

Better browsing: Browsing through groups and functional areas is improved, including the option to sort groups in different ways.

Announcements: To better share future changes to mozillians.org, we have added an announcements section on the homepage for logged-in users. When there aren’t any announcements to show, you’ll see some fun facts about Mozillians based on information in the database.

The new logged-in view lets you browse groups more easily and also shows announcements.

A new look

As we were redesigning the homepage, it also made sense to update the styles on the whole site. We worked with the fantastic Brand Engagement team on the visuals and direction. We especially love their Style Guide, which made the styling much easier for us.

Take it for a spin

As with many site redesigns, this is a large release with big changes to our codebase. If you see anything that looks weird, we’d like to make it better. Please file a bug and we’ll look into it.

Mozillians, this site is for you. All 3,500+ Mozilla volunteers and paid staff. We hope you enjoy the new homepage and styles for the site. And we’ve just begun. We’ll be fixing minor UI bugs and giving profiles some attention in a redesign soon.
