Re: A New XnView Website

I like the idea of combining several related software tools under a common name. "xnsoft" is a good name, but the domain "xnsoft.com" is taken at the moment. Looks like a different top level domain has to be used.

Even in a family each person has a name, so it's not about giving up a brand or a name. "XnView" will persist and so will "XnConvert". But these tools will no longer be cluttered on individual pages but be hosted under a common name "xnsoft.com".

I'm not a SEO expert, but sure enough the high page rank of "xnview.com" must be considered and must not be endangered. Perhaps people with profound web knowledge can help here and decide how to introduce a "family domain" best.

Ok the 'xnview.com' has understandable value could be looked at as being needed to be preserved.

So under a single 'xnview.com' redesigned site (Thibaud's WordPress design + dynamic language picker like in the current 'xnconvert.com' website). So how about simply these following, below:


xnview.com/xnview
xnview.com/classic-xnview
xnview.com/xnconvert
xnview.com/xnshell
xnview.com/mobile
xnview.com/nconvert
xnview.com/gfl-sdk



So to explain the above;

xnview.com/xnview would house these:
-for the MP releases of course :)

xnview.com/mobile would house these:
-XnView Smartphone (discontinued)
-XnView Pocket (discontinued)
-..Plus a future Android/Iphone version too(maybe) :mrgreen:

xnview.com/classic-xnview would house:
-the still existing Xnview Win, Mac, Linux old and non-MP releases. Yuk (out with the old, in with the new).

xnview.com/xnconvert would house:
-of course for the existing XnConvert. A redirection from 'xnconvert.com' to this newly proposed domain would have to occur.


The main 'xnview.com' would be the main 'front' website consisting of all the list of apps, maybe not as large icons as I originally described but maybe all listed within a tab e.g under a Products tab instead.

Another mock-up, probably my final, which integrates both mine and Thibaud's idea schemes:

PiXhost link preview:- http://www.pixhost.org/show/2504/740748 ... ellous.png

To explain some of the above;
XnShell and XnMobile, of course, would have their own designed icons the above is just for mock-up purposes. Current (Thibaud's) XnSDK logo icon is just fine. NConvert doesn't really need an icon (command line app with no GUI) but could still get it's own design icon for website/marketing purposes. :)

The 'XnView' tab would be for:
-Xnview MP
-Classic Xnview 1.9xx
[xnview.com/xnview]
[xnview.com/xnview/classic]


The 'XnSDK' tab would be for:
-GFL SDK
-GFLAx
[xnview.com/devtools/sdk]
[xnview.com/devtools/gflax]


The 'XnMobile' tab would be for:
-a future Iphone and Android Xnview
-XnView Smartphone (discontinued)
-XnView Pocket (discontinued)
[xnview.com/xnmobile/android]
[xnview.com/xnmobile/iphone]
[xnview.com/xnmobile/pocket-old]
[xnview.com/xnmobile/smartphone-old]

Hmm, I think each type of software should have a tab. From my point of view, XnView on PC, Mac, or mobile computers is just one type of software (a software for browsing and viewing graphic images) and therefore should have one naming ("XnView MP", "XnView Mobile", ...) and one tab, only.

We must all thank Thibuad for his design efforts for the release of the new XnView.com website.

Website went live since March 22, 2013 - http://www.xnview.com/en/index.php

The site is initially available in English and French languages first. German and others would presumably come later :)
