The server will be upgraded today to use the latest version of the Web interface. We anticipate that things may break so expect some instability over the next few days. What we discover by doing this will hopefully make the upgrade of the production server smoother.

Well I hope the server doesn't look like this website does right now

It reminds me of a website update back in 1995 when the wrong html in the source code was added and the wrong key hit and everything disappeared

The Boostrap theme and changes to BOINC web code was not compatible with the previous version. Now it should look better.

Looks clean Nils

One thing it is missing that I was used to having is the *message board* link at the bottom of the pages and the Main page link at the top where the logo is.

The CMS jobs page seems to be missing its decorations (CSS, whatever...).

The CMS jobs page seems to be missing its decorations (CSS, whatever...).

In fact all pages except the home page are missing the menu down the left and the links to home/account/messages at the bottom.

Thanks for your comments Ivan!

Thanks to the work of our colleague Nikolas, you see a number of changes on the layout here, and there may be more.

+1, Thank you for this upgrade.

One small wish:
Is it possible to eliminate this picture at the top, or find a other position for the headers.
Every time you need to scroll the web-site down. This are a lot of mouse-clicks in the future.

I just had something strange happen.
Notice all those CMS and LHCb errors

Well none of my computers including that one are set to run those tasks .......only Theory tasks

16 of those errors and this is my laptop so I am always watching it and it is always set to not allow new tasks while it is running the Theory multi-core tasks.

The new page looks good and is fast in the answer.

One Question: The Leaderboard is grey. Is it possible to bind the billionaers-club back again and MonteCarlo-stats?

Thank you

The LeaderBoard is a separator and is not intended to be clickable. As for the Billionaires Club and the MCPlots, they have been added under Billionaires Club and Theory Jobs buttons respectively.

Thank you for your suggestions.
