Also, I think the very first paragraph on the home page should say:

"SFML (Simple and Fast Multimedia Library) provides a simple interface to the various components of your PC..." (the underlined part being the new part)

Just so the full name is easy to see and understand.

Bug: It relies on the browser's default styles having a white background.
I'll fix it this evening.
Great, I noticed this was fixed! However, new bug I noticed now:
<h2>, <pre> and class="title" relies on the browser's default styles having black text :D

(The <div class="title"> on the frontpage should probably be <h2>s instead)

I've done some changes:

- Doxygen Javascript bug is fixed (inheritance diagrams in API documentation)
- I've added a "back to top" button on the right side of every h2 title (tutorials only)
- Every h2 title has a unique id that can be used as an anchor (tutorials only)
- I've changed the title of the home page to be "Simple and Fast Multimedia Library" (that was a quick fix, I'll try to put an additional paragraph instead, as suggested) (and the meaning of SFML may also appear directly in the logo, too)
- Fixed all the reported CSS bugs

More important changes (adding sections, redesigning the menu) will come later.

More feedback is still welcome ;)

Nope, though I think it hasn't been reported yet.
If you switch between License and Home or Download, you'll notice that on the License site the whole page, will get slightly pushed to the right.
My guess is the <pre> block being too big and thus forcing the parent containers to get bigger as well.

I can't reproduce this. Isn't it just because the vertical scrollbar appears on some pages (and thus pushes everything to the left) and not on others? :P

Now that you say it... ;D
Yeah it exists on the home and license page, since they add a scrollbar.

Dang now I need a bigger screen. :P

You can't imagine how many precious minutes I wasted, trying to fix this "bug" while developing the website ;D

I have a bug to report. Whenever you search up sfml tutorials and click on the URL: www.sfml-dev.org/tutorials I get a forbidden access error. I'm on my iPhone right now so I don't know if it's an iOS related problem.

The URL has changed to tutorials.php
I guess the search engines have to catch up first. One could also implement a redirect in the .htaccess file, so the engines would directly know where the content moved to...

Yeah, you need a much nicer 403 and 404 message. :)

Just dropping by to say that I love the new look, and the site feels more modern now than the previous version.
Great work  :D

The new forum bar looks pretty cool, too -- I like the combination of green and blue :)
