System down, and back up again!

We have just experienced a short downtime of our system. It’s back up again so you can continue using it.

The problem was not with the actual server itself, but rather with our ISP (short for Internet Service Provider). The whole building was without internet connection for several hours.

In constant striving to provide a good service, we are already planning to migrate the server to a dedicated hosting provider. Most likely this will happen in the week after the next planned release, which is on Monday 3rd of May.

We apologize for any inconvenience this downtime has caused.

Latest mockups for the new user interface – we need your feedback!

We’ve just finished designing the latest draft mockups for the user interface and we’d like to hear your feedback.

Article Search

We won’t touch the first page of search as we think the “Google” approach works best. But what we will do is change the article search results page to a more organized one and with some nice features. Other, non-article, sections of the site (resources, support, blog, etc.) will keep the current search results page.

Article Search Results Page

The main idea is that once you know what you’re searching for, you don’t even need to open the article. The main thing here is the Preview button which will open a small window box which will preview the article’s text. Once you’ve read it you’ll be able to quickly Download it or add it to Download Cart with buttons on the left of the article.

Article Preview

This is how the preview will look (the same as with ‘overlay’ image boxes you see on many websites).

Advanced Search Results filtering

There will also be a new interface for filtering your search results. Instead of going to a new page, the advanced search panel will slide from the left.

Article

Article options will be available in the right sidebar instead on top of the article. This way the visual space will be better used.

New UI Article

Give us your feedback

The new user interface was created with the easiest and fastest finding of articles in mind. We took into account your early feedback and our own usage.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the new user interface mockups:

  • Do you like it?
  • Would you change anything?
  • Is there something missing you’d like to see?

Let us know in the comments!

Version 0.4 online

We’ve just installed the new version of our web application. There were a few smaller bugfixes done and we’ve added a new feature – Download Cart. You can see it in action in the video here and you can already use it.

The current download cart user interface is not perfect so the next version will be concentrated on the UI. I’ll be posting the mockups in a day or two and we’ll be expecting your feedback. 😉

First WSO sold out in 4 hours

Yesterday we launched our first Warrior Special Offer. For those few who don’t know what that is, it’s member-only special offers on Warrior Forum, the largest Internet Marketing forums.

We offered 15 people lifetime access to our application for 15$. The offer sold out in 4 hours. While being sold out in a relatively short amount of time is a good sign, the opposite at this price would force us to rethink the whole project.

We have three more WSOs prepared, each at a higher price, and we hope they go just as well.
