Site Design: New Treehouse(

    I can see what they're trying to do with the primary navbar (scroll down and the links disappear to help push you towards a trial) but it gets really janky if you scroll up and down too fast.

    What was wrong with the human effect of having a photo of a person using Treehouse on the landing page? Seems to have lost its soul a little more now.

      Not sure about the nav criticism, I've got to try really hard to get it to behave even close to oddly.

        Interestingly enough I think they have tweaked it since our original comments about it came out as I have no problem with it now. All it needed was a little delay which is what I think might have gotten added.

        I just have to scroll up and down to get it to act like it's not sure what I want. Honestly, I'm not sure why the nav would go away at all when I scroll down? Why not just keep it there so I can use it if I want to?

          If you scroll on it, it appears ... no matter where on the page you are. I think they want to provide more focus on the free trial.

      I did like the picture with people on the previous homepage.

      Agree that is has lost its soul a bit now, i felt the previous style was very warm and inviting and unique, i think the current style is a bit sterile and feels too much like many other tech sites.

      Agree, lacks a bit of warmth/personality. It feels over-minimalised.

      Yup. Loved the previous home page. Very personal. Very human. But I'm sure the fine folks at Treehouse must have thought of some good reasons to change their design.
