Our website needed a facelift. And today, we got it just in time for SANSFIRE ;-). 

The site will use the old design in some parts, but our most frequently used pages have been converted to a more modern design. We will transform other pages over the next few weeks and months.

Please let us know if you experience any issues. We tested with various browsers, but covering every possible browser/device is impossible. The site will work on mobile devices, but a complete mobile version/design is coming. 

Please report bugs via GitHub to make it easier for us to track them.


If you don't like the design: Tough luck :) Having done a few ISC redesigns over the last 20+ years, I know that there is nothing more controversial than redesigning a site. While in the past, it was often me whipping up some HTML or CSS code, we let professionals do it this time. People who know colors with fancy names and are doing designs for a living. I am sure we will adjust things along the way, but this redesign will also lead us to a more modern and flexible backend.

Thanks to the SANS team working on this, particularly John, Benson, Dan, and Matthew.

Love the new layout reminds me of every other SANS Website. Some page needs TLC.

In case you guys didn't know it seems that Twitter links are 404ing.
I don't have a GitHub account and I don't want to create one, so I'll report this issue here.
The RSS feed still has the old URLs. I.e. this diary entry is[anything]/28826/ but the RSS entry has it as (no "forums" directory between the host name and the "diary" directory) so attempting to open the diary entry from the RSS entry results in a Not Found.
Love the new design, awesome work. Please do add the option for dark-mode. I am sure a lot of us would be pleased :)
Sent a message in contact us, but the new site requires javascript to see now, which is okay as long as you don't publish a diary entry on how many visitors blindly allow javascript... You've done that story in the past.
