I dislike the new layout so I still prefer to use the out of date www.amiga-hardware.com instead. It's just not as clear and easy to use as the old site.

You are right. I would like to have 2 frames instead of one site, too. But I'm no programmer and I had to take an existing programm and tried to make it as much as possible looking like the old.

Now it's a BBoAH running everywhere. Thats one of the reasons why I did it. Have you seen the new features? Everyone can work on the BBoAH now for to make new translations.The world is not only German and English.

The next thintg I want to change is the large categories to HW specific sub-categories. Look at RAM Expansios. 9! sites. This soft can handle sub-categories like RAM Expansions--> a500, A600 and so on. This will make it much easier to search something specific.

I know it is not perfect and some of you don't like it. The other main-reasons were: 1. PERL is not running everywhere. 2. It's not very easy to work on the database.

The new is PHP-based, that makes it much easier to run everywhere. The new also is much more safer. The home-site amiga-resistance was already hacked a few times, so call me a psycho, but I'm on a "make it as safe as possible" trip.

If anyone has specific suggestions what could be changed feel free to post. And if anyone with more knowledge as I have (quite easy ) wants to help feel free to contact me.

regards

Hi All,

When I'm searching for information I will take the "any port in a storm" approach. Therefore I like ALL these sites.

I also think the 'views' under each piece of hardware should be removed. They make it harder to scan through the lists and are, to me, a useless piece of information.

This project is a long time comming for BBoAH I wish you the best of luck with it
Hi,
we're just started to translate to polish.

Any translation to any language that is listed in the bboah translation form can be done. But we're looking for help. If you want to make a translation please use www.bboah.de. It's just difficult to manage entries in 2 databases.

regards

It's impossible to get a clear view of the content.

The search is particularly bad on the new BBOAH to the point of unusable (plus the search text box is not well placed).

Example... search for "Sync Dongle". I know this is a record in BBoAH because I have edited it in the past. It appears no-where in the new search.

Use the old search and it is number one in the results.
