Heya guys, thanks a lot for all the feedback! Really enjoy reading your comments, and am trying to translate them to the layout.
There are several reasons for having a different layout.
1) The site can be much more responsive / faster.
2) The site can be better navigable than the old version, I'm sure. We just need to work together to make it happen. There was a huge waste of space in the old layout, with a lot of stuff that wasn't interesting.
3) We have a HUGE amount of content, we needed more than 5-10 article on one page... otherwise new people would not ever get to the 40th article for example. We have over 800 articles now... we want the 700 not to be 'wasted', but still available to those interested. It was overwhelming for most people that came to our website for the first time. In this way, it is easier for them to get an overview. We will do more in this respect later on.
Thanks for the tip Dre, I'm aware of that, but I want you guys to look with me, and give me feedback on the progress. I can't do that if I'm working offline.
Latest version online, looking forward to hearing from ya'll
. Sound your voices
. Tried to embed images, and excerpt to the latest 5 articles.
We are thinking about doing something else with the 'featured' box (as especially regular readers don't see it updated that often), and adding the latest 2 articles in that space: so they will be prominent. What do you guys think about that?
