New Pololu.com website


We released a new version of the Pololu.com website today. We are working on bringing the content up-to-date on the new site; please let us know what you think and if you see any problems!



I like the new site, particularly the product detail pages. The new forum is looking great. Keep up the great work!!


Am I imagining things, or did the old forums site have horizontal scrolling, say, if an embedded image was wider than the display window. Just a thought, for posts with large pictures like this one:

Incidentally, it also appears that BBCode is off in this forum (Announcements), although it appears to be working in other ones.



Well, I managed to enable BBCode for Announcements, but I’m currently stumped when it come images that are too wide for the display window. I’ll look into it a bit more. If you find any other settings that seem strange or wrong, please continue to let us know!

I’m still using IE6, and it works (i.e. horizontal scroll bar shows up) there! I didn’t even know what Adam was talking about until I saw it on Ben’s computer. Looks like the pictures get truncated in IE7 and Firefox.

Time to dig through more settings!

While I’m making trouble for you guys, I’m trying to place an order (not a critical rush or anything), and I spotted the:

Former Pololu customers: an account has been automatically generated for you. Click here to obtain your password.

I liked the idea of being able to look up my old orders, so I tried it, using my normal e-mail address and typed in the warped characters, and it said I would get a login details e-mail. That was about half an hour ago, and I haven’t received anything yet.


P.S. I also discovered a weird thing when I tried to post just now. Apparently Jan posted while I was still writing mine, and when I hit post I just saw a preview-style version of his new one, but that’s phpBB’s fault. Maybe it’s a feature, like don’t answer a question when someone else beats you to it. Maybe it would have gone through if I had just tried hitting submit again.
