Check it out.

An undeniable paradox: To think that there is any such thing as an absolute rule is at worst naïve, and at best, shortsighted. There is no such thing as an always-true, all context- or situation-salient, absolute rule that always holds true…including this one!

I am finding it difficult to navigate and the font size is too small. So far I consider it a step backward in design.

You should be able to change the font size in your browser. In Firefox it's View->Zoom->Zoom In

Quicker to hold down the Ctrl key and use your mouse roller, (in Windows).

I can't help but wonder that he's optimized the site for phones and tablets. The font selection seems to lend itself to a narrower screen in portrait orientation.

On the other hand, I liked how he cleaned up the drop-down menus. In particular, I very much like the Ultimate Upgrade Guide which is under Camera->Camera Articles. I guess I particularly like his answer which says if you own a D300, stick with it. Saves me another incident of NAS!

Old site is still up, at least for now...

I agree on the font size and agree with another poster that it's probably to allow easier reading on tablets and smart phones. However, overall I think it's an improvement as I found the old (original) site messy and almost as that it needed a spring clean.

I've spent a bit of time trying to find articles I often refer folks to such as VR or the miss-use of VR and found all of my enquiries through the on site "ByThom" search field.

I'm sure we'll all get used to it and it's probable he'll not update the original site after a while, so best get used to it

Ctrl and + on your keyboard to increase the font size in any browser. Ctrl and - on your keyboard to reduce the font size in any browser.

Takes two seconds to make it exactly the size you prefer.

I was actually searching for an old lens review, and it took me a minute to get off the psplash page and find the right sub-site. Font size didn't bother me — but right now I'm on a big screen, and there's always the magical (for us old folk) command-plus technique (is that control-plus for you PC folk?). But tonite on my laptop will be more of a test.

It's strange such a software savvy person doesn't hire a web designer. All his sites suffer from usability issues, not to mention subpar aesthetics. Such a wealth of information, so hard to get to.

Thanks. For several weeks I have been watching the old site waiting for it to convert to the new site. I am surprised that Thom did not make an announcement on his old site with a link to the new one. I would have continued on the assumption that he was still working on his new site.

I think Thom did, but it was rather low-key. If you go to Bythom.com now, it's just simply an amalgamation of links to the latest content on all his other sites. Somewhere on the 17th of July, he cut it over from the old style (dominant "teaching picture", tabs that were migrated to DSLR bodies etc) to the stark B&W text only it is now.

Hi Armando,

The link that I had bookmarked for Thom's site is http://www.bythom.com/index.htm When you go to that page it looks just the same as it always did. Once you delete the "/index.htm" bit off in the browser it goes to the index page you mentioned. So I was quite happily clicking my bookmark to what I thought was Thom's main page and getting the standard page with nothing to indicate that the site had moved.

Fair point Robert. He removed the standard redirect to /index.htm behavior when surfing directly to the bythom.com address. This is probably to wean off any new arrivals. Not sure what he intends to do with the index.htm page. It would make sense to force a redirect back eventually, but maybe there's content he's keeping there for archive purposes.
