your site

Your site used to be a good place to go to get technical info. Now you can not ever find what you are looking for. EX I just performed a search on Google for the terms "struts 2 tags if collection" and one of your pages was listed in the results. But if you go to that page you not only don't find what you are looking for, it is not obvious who to get to what you are looking for. Our team used to reference your site regularly when trying to find examples, but ever since the redesign from the yellow color scheme, it has become progressively hard to use your site. There are other tech sites on the web, but it is a shame to see such a good resource become so bloated and cumbersome that it no longer works.
