Similar Threads Redesign for UNIX.com
I have redesigned our "similar threads" for a more "clean style" in both the desktop view and the mobile view for the forum "show thread".
The new design is a simple straight-forward use of div elements and all the legacy table elements have been removed.
The result is a "clean" style which works well in both mobile and desktop.
PS: I also think this new design will help with SEO a bit as well, which has already been improving quite a lot lately as traffic from search engine referrals continue to rise steadily since May when I started making changes based on recent updates to Google's algo.
Note: Have also updated the "show posts" pages of the desktop view with the same "clean" style.
I have been quietly updating the man page database adding "similar threads" for man pages.
