Indiewire Redesign Goes Live
5
TOH Logo

Due warning: Indiewire and its Blog Network, including TOH, are getting a makeover. As many of you know, no site redesign goes smoothly, so expect some wonky weirdness over the next week. Feel free to let me know what’s missing or just plain awful and we will work overtime to get things right.

In the end, the goal is for the spiffy new bells and whistles to make all our cool content easier to find and share. Here’s IW’s Dana Harris on what to expect:

- It’s easier to find content. We have better navigation and tagging that lets us point you directly to popular features like Project of the Day, film acquisitions and the Filmmaker Toolkit.

- There’s more to see. At the risk of geeking out, we have a fantastic new CMS—the system for posting content. It lets the site show more content from across the network, which means we’re able to show Playlist posts next to Indiewire next to Thompson on Hollywood—and all are clearly labeled, so you know who’s talking.

- Favorite sections are new and improved. Box office, reviews, film pages—they’ve gotten prettier and smarter.

- Lots of shiny images. Thanks to the new design, there’s plenty to be seen across the site—and we have new tools that will let us (finally!) build photo galleries.

- The blogs got a makeover, too. All of the network blogs have gone through the redesign and have access to the same CMS as Indiewire proper.

- Criticwire will be back. Criticwire will need some more time before it launches on the new site. In the meantime, we’ll still be collecting critics’ grades and displaying their averages on the homepage.

- There’s a new logo. It’s a big deal to change a logo after 15 years. We did it because we wanted a logo that reflects both the fresh vision we have for the site as well as the core of who we are. As for the spelling, we decided that if we’ve been around for 15 years and people still couldn’t decide how to spell it—Indie Wire, IndieWire, IndieWIRE, indiewire—we’d make it easy on everyone and spell it Indiewire.

- There Will Be Bugs. We’re asking your patience in advance; this is the downside of creating an all-new site. I promise that we’re squashing them as fast as we can.
