    Phoronix: Phoronix Premium Get More Features, Site Work

    There's been some more site updates on Phoronix this week along with more features for Phoronix Premium subscribers. This includes continued log-in improvements, bolding external links, and a look at upcoming content...

    I like the changes but you might want to do something nicer when there are no posts waiting to go live. Seeing just this "Phoronix Premium - Upcoming Articles:" with nothing else is really annoying to us obsessive compulsive types.

    I wish you will add more payment options like via VISA without paypal.

    Default RSS links

    When the content management system / vBulletin subscription issue gets resolved, will we be able to get the premium view just by clicking the RSS link without visiting the forums for a log-in first?

    Unfortunately that's not easily possible. vBulletin handles our subscription management.

    Yes, the biggest annoyance of all. I already didn't see any ads due to the blocker, but the amount of effort it takes to get the real ad-free version.
    Actually it would have already been a big improvement if phoronix.com was easily linked from the forums section.
    My usual official ad-free browsing was like this: go to phoronix.com, see a lot of blocked ads. Click on phorums. Click on log in, log in on the login failure page. Then edit the url.
    I haven't seen a faster route than that to easily get logged in.
    Of course I can brows the ad version so you get some extra income ;-).

    I noticed this morning that, indeed the timeout session is extended, and I got a mostly ad-free experience this morning on the first visit to an article.

    The one outlier was the intellitext in articles, which still showed up until I visited the forums once. Not sure if that's an easy one to fix or not.

    Thanks for the work Michael. These recent improvements should hopefully help to bump the premium subscriber rate up quite a bit, and it'll definitely keep me in the subscriber bucket.
