KB gets a Facelift

We've been very busy lately working on some changes to the VMware Knowledge Base that we're just bursting to tell you about! We can't tell you everything we're up to today, but thought you might want a sneak peek at the new look & feel that's coming soon.

Here's the new KB Homepage. Much easier on the eyes don't you think?
Note the simpler search section, tabbed interface, and sidebar with collapsible sections.

Home page

The results page looks a lot cleaner too. Again you see tabbed results, which put a lot of information right at your fingertips, all on one page.

KB search results

And finally, a look at a KB article. Check out the handy actions in the right sidebar.

KB article view

There, you have a taste of the new look coming. We're also working on the internals that power the KB, and soon we'll be updating you on that.
