You've seen the new-look HEXUS site, but have you explored the features waiting within?

There's a wealth of new functionality designed to help you make the most of your HEXUS experience, and to make sure you don't miss any of it, we've put together a list of our five favourite enhancements.

We've plenty more in store, so stay tuned for future updates, but for now, here (in no particular order) are five ways to make the most of the new HEXUS site:

The Vault

Struggling to read all your favourite content in one go? Fear not, as the HEXUS Vault is available to bookmark and save all the stories you're interested in for a later date.

Clever bit: the Vault is tied to your MY HEXUS account, so your favourite content is accessible across devices.



Want to keep up to date on the news that matters most to you? That's where HEXUS Alerts come in. Let us know which manufacturers or products you're interested in, and we'll automatically keep you up to date via email.

Clever bit: you can configure your alerts to drop instantly, daily, weekly or monthly.


Mobile view

Sure, the new homepage looks incredible, but did you know there's also a brand new mobile counterpart specifically optimised for smaller screens? Point your browser to to check it out.

Clever bit: we know you're sometimes looking for something in particular, so we've also included search in our mobile site.


In-line commenting

At long last, eh? All MY HEXUS members can now comment on articles without leaving the page.

Clever bit: your MY HEXUS account is linked to the HEXUS community, allowing you to comment using a single unified login.



We've rebuilt our search engine from the ground up, and we're very proud of what we've achieved. You can now find your favourite content easier than ever before.

Clever bit: only looking for reviews? Want to find something from a particular date? We've integrated a wide range of filters to help.


As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on any of the new features, and if you've discovered something else that you love or hate, don't hesitate to let us know!

We have a lot of new features coming on the HEXUS site - and this is just the start.

… See… :)
My favourite technology website just got better :p
aaaah in line commenting!

Keep it coming guys, good work :)

The screenshot used doesn't tally with the current layout - bottom icons etc in different order:
How do new visitors know what the vault icon looks like? It's mentioned on the /vault/ page but not shown. (I know but others might not.)
Finally, could we have a link to the vault in the My Hexus page please?
Loving the Vault and In-Line Commenting, keep up the good work :D

Noticed the In-Line commenting is ordered in reverse… could we keep it the same as the forums please?
