Latest news on website



  • its ouit of date download version wrong website needs to be more interactive as well

    more copmpetitions and challanges so people make powerarchiver specific plugins



  • Totally agree. It would be nice if this was the first port of call (not twitter/fb etc) that has all the latest information. Other businesses can achieve it, so I am sure that it would not be difficult to PA to implement. 🙂



  • It was discused awhile ago that the website would be getting a overall change making it more modern and simpler to navigate.

    No preview has been shown yet, but I am sure they will be implementing changes relivant to your requests.

    I think an updated website is still someways off…
    the team seem to be focused on reaching a final release of PA but I’m sure the website is a focal point of theirs.



  • I never said the website would be a higher Priority 🙂 I just said that it was on the list of jobs being done, from what i have been told.

    The release of the Application is the highest priority as it is this that brings in an income.

    if anyone has some good examples of good software websites, post it here…

    … fb/twitter is excellet for quick one/two liners, you will never get that on home page.



  • OK, I’ll bite 😃
    Only regarding “up to date info”…

    www.opera.com
    www.videolan.org
    www.zabkat.com

    awesome suggestions!

    as to the left overs, forgot to remove them… not enough people visited from those countries (they usually download from their own download sites or mags). We do English and Deutsch in the house.

    I like a lot VLC’s and Operas new sites, they look great.

    I am not sure how do they interact more, i think level of our interaction via fb and twitter is all right and more than any other compression utility… xplorer2 has old school website and news section is updated 3 times per year 🙂

    opera also doesnt interact with its users?


  • conexware

    any other suggestions? I like utorrent.com… but keep in mind that all these are free products, we need something that mixes things up :).



  • Just my 2 cents: I have no problem with PA website except that the “latest news” often has nothing close to the latest news about release versions.

    Alpha, Beta & RC info don’t need to (actually probably shouldn’t) go here, but kept in twitter and/or blog posts if you want to announce them to a wide group.

    But the website should definitely have up-to-date and correct info about the release packages; this issue is really independent of a redesign.

    Well, to be fair, xplorer site is updated, whenever there is an update, it’s a one-man show 😃

    Opera has lots of interaction…

    • The website is updated regularly with news etc.
    • User Forums
    • Team “blogs” - DesktopTeam / Core Devs / JavaScript Team etc. for Alpha releases and Special Test
    • Youtube (like PA)
    • Opera devs have personal “Blogs” and “Twitter”.
    • Only the “bug-tracking” is closed.
    • Opera wasn’t always free (site was similar when paid for).

    I do think PA is also good - just things like the “latest news” etc. is always out of date. This forum is one of the best, though (due to spwolf, mili and even ivan “popping in”).

    It is hard to find a good “paid software” website.
    And impossible to find an Compression/Archiver site I would even suggest you should look at :p


  • Alpha Testers

    Was going to give Opera as an example but I see Terry beat me to it. 😃

    🙂 I know buddy, no harsh feelings.

    I’ve had a hell of a week, Helped save a half a mill account from leaving my employer because of a fracking idiot account manager. Yet didnt receive one thanks!

    Then ended up having to reload 2 months of Sales Records due too the Idiots in ashford not checking the data from depots, and after all that to top it off some noob decided to change a customer’s hierarchy structure that then duplicated statistics per customer and THEN sent off stats off to them thus the customer invoiced us Twice the amount for a contracted rebate, of which we then had to tell them it was an error.

    Just one of them weeks!

    any other design suggestions? Keep posting them 🙂



  • To be fair, I don’t think it is a design problem. Just something that is not “out of date”!

    i know, but i am looking for design suggestions :-).

    I need to write up an document with examples to the potential designers.


  • Alpha Testers
