We are very happy to announce that the new yiiframework.com website is finally ready for deployment.
A huge thanks to Сергей Хильков (eshill) for his design work, to Jacob Moen and Nikola Trifunović for the countless hours spent on tweaking the frontend code and doing pages markup. Thanks to prodex, Robert Korulczyk and other contributors for fixes and additions.
There is a forum topic for discussion on this announcement.
The new website will keep most of the content that is currently available online. We tried to keep existing content in the same places, so URLs should be the same as before. If you find that content is missing that was available before, please report to website project issues.
You can have a look at the new site on https://new.yiiframework.com/. Please note that this is just a preview. All content there will be re-imported destroying all the changes made when we'll deploy production version. Be careful with the forum however as it is real production one proxied to the new site :)
The new website puts more focus on the documentation, making Guide and API docs the first items in the navigation.
You can now also directly search for API entries from the main navigation search field.
You can search for class names and also method and property names, e.g.
ActiveRecord.save() or just
Wiki and Extensions are available as before. Extensions now integrate with packagist, so if your extension is listed on packagist.org you no longer have to maintain two different places, the content is automatically synced with packagist if you enter the packagist URL in the extension properties.
The community section still has the old forum, which will continue to operate as before for now. We might replace the forum with a better solution in the future (Update Sep. 3, 2018: Moving the forum to Discourse). Also badges and ranking functionality has been ported from the old website.
Other information about Yii is now grouped under the "More" point in the navigation.
User accounts ¶
We have imported all user accounts from the old website. You should be able to log in with your user name and password as before. If it does not work, there is a password reset option. In case you lost access to your account, we'll be there to help, please report to website project issues or write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can now log in with github. To connect your existing login with your github account, log in regularly first, then go to your profile page (click on your user name on the top right) and authorize github. You won't need to type password again.
If you have feedback about the new website, or you found a bug, please report in the Github issue tracker.
We are going to switch to the new website on March 23, 2018 in the time frame 8:00 to 12:00 UTC. During the switch, you will not be able to write comments, wikis, forum entries etc. Also the documentation may not be available. You can use http://stuff.cebe.cc/yii2docs/ to view the documentation.
We will be avilable in the Slack chat and on IRC #yii on freenode, so if you need help, get there.
