New Portal on GBAtemp!

Enjoy the new interface







Dear members, we are proud to present you our new portal!

We have been reading your numerous requests and after days of work, you can finally enjoy the new interface, which features:


- Selective display of the news.
Go to your profile to select what you want to see on the portal. You can also order the items the way you want. For example, my selection is "General, NDS, Wii, GBA". But you might only want to have the "NDS, General" news displayed. That is now possible!


- AJAX Technology.

When you click on a different news item, your browser will not reload the whole page, it will only refresh the news frame. It has been tested on IE6 and Firefox. Please report any bug in our Bugs forum.


- Options and ... retrocompatibility

You can select the amount of news displayed under each news item. Just go to your profile and select the amount in the list. On the same page, you can also switch back to the old portal interface which we have of course kept for old-schools sake!



We hope you do enjoy this new interface!

Humm, that was fast.

At any rate, it looks shiny.

I just hope it isn't too hard on the poor server.

This new portal is also much less bandwidth/CPU consuming, which should hopefully make the site faster at peak times!
Our ears are open to your suggestions and we'll always do our best to improve GBAtemp

On the contrary, it is lighter than the default portal

I optimized it as hard as I could.

I like the listing of the releases. Makes it great when there are 5+ releases dumped on one day, don't have to scroll/search around to see what I've missed.

I'd suggest that for the future when they become more prevalent, a "Last 5 Wii releases" table on the right side just like the NDS and GBA lists.
