@Mohawk70: You should use the right link to the Board which is this one: https://www.purebasic.fr/english/

I copied the URL directly from the browser address bar ... it goes to the exact page I was referring to after logging into the forum and going to that post. It makes no difference at all Image

Some quick remarks:
-Downloads page is missing version numbers. Essential info for someone who wants to quickly peek if new version is out. Although the news page seems to be more prominent now (or I remember incorrectly).
-The screenshots are the same old ones from the old website. There seems to be some weird 'screen bending' effect in the small thumbnails? Doesn't add anything but distraction.
-Logo is low res.
-Could have some more colors. Very bland muted scheme now.

Try not to spend too much time on that, there are some bugs that need to be fixed :) :)
(and this website is a lot better than the previous one anyway)

Of course it works in some way, but there is no HTTPS on http://forums.purebasic.com/english , cookies are not working as expected and it is just an old link which is no more official. @Fred should shut down this link completely in my opinion. The address https://www.purebasic.fr/english is the official link to the board.

It is a common mistake to ignore the alphabetic order of the config files in the sites-enabled directory of Apache. If you have two Virtualhost that could potentially serve the same domain the first one will get precedence.

But if you want I can take a deeper look at it.

The DNS propagation delay can be up to 72 hours.

wget tells me that you are redirecting the domain to itself.
Code:

@Marc56us: This has nothing to do with DNS resolving. The DNS entries are correct.

I like the new site. :)

On the main page :

Should ditch the 'of'.

Using PureBasic is no brainer: you install the program, run the IDE and start developping your application. Generates small executables similar to C/C++ programs without DLL dependencies.

Same misspelling on SpiderBasic website.

I found more language errors.

It's not a big deal, but throughout the website, "license" and "licence" are both used.
As was previously mentioned, in English, there is no space before question and exclamation marks.

On the Pricing page:

Under each of the pricing tiers:
"Royality-free" should be "Royalty-free".

Under "EDUCATIONAL:"
"classroom" is one word.

Under "How fast is the delivering?"
- I personally would change "delivering" to "delivery" (Also on FAQ page).
- "recieved" should be "received".

On the FAQ page:

Is PureBasic really small and fast ?
- "match" should be "matches".

Does PureBasic have a visual editor ?
- "mutli-window" should be "multi-window".
- I would change "allows to build" to something like "allows you to build" or "can build". It reads a little awkwardly right now.

Is the PureBasic licence valid for all OS ?
- "an user-based" should be "a user-based".
- "cover" should be "covers".

Is it allowed to use DLLs made with PureBasic in other projects ?
- "Dlls" should be "DLLs".

Why the Windows API description isn't included in the PureBasic documentation ?
"informations" -> "information"

Are there different PureBasic packages available and where can I buy them ?
- I would change the "was" in "Earlier, there was boxed versions" to "were".
- Is "updatetable" a word?

:oops: Sorry for pointing out so many things.

It's a good thing to mention these errors. Don't worry.
