    I've been analyzing traffic trends recently and have noticed that only about 14% of traffic that visits my sites have screen resolutions set to 800X600 or smaller; yet the Telerik.com website stylesheet is set for 779 px wide.

    I can possibly concede that the main home page should be compliant with 100% of your visitors specs, but I think that for the majority of your visitors, the Client.net area would hugely benefit from another 200px of available width (or perhaps even a fluid layout).  Specifically, the forums area could use more width allocated for both the left and right hand side of the page.  Most of the Browse Forum root tree nodes are currently truncated and that makes some of them comfusing.  For example, "RadControls for ShareP..." is in there twice.  And there's alot of the forum threads with code samples that are fairly wide and with the hidden overflow a significant amount of the code gets cropped.

    Both ComponentArt and Infrangistics websites use the extra width efficiently.

    Good to hear Ivo.  One small thing I've been asking about for years is the ability to multi-select and delete forum subscriptions from the "My Subscriptions" page.  I hear the RadGrid has a built-in CheckBoxColumn ;)

    Three months later and so for nothing has been updated with the site.  What gives?  It seems that with the Q2 release it would have been a perfect opportunity to update your stylesheet.  The blogs, the labs, the documentation = pretty & efficient.  The website = outdated and highly inefficient.  If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

    Hello Shaun,

    My name is Kalina Maneva and I am the manager of the web team in Telerik.

    This is to let you know in the past months we have been working on a set of major improvements to the Telerik web site. We are planning for a release right after the after the Q3 release.

    We have completely restructured the information and graphic layouts which will solve the issues posted by you.  We are open to any additional suggestions and recommendations you might have.

    We appreciate your willingness to contribute, and will contact you once we are done with a beta release of the site and it is open for testing by users.

    Thanks again for your input.

    Best Regards,
    Kalina
