I have been extremely busy with school lately, but I have been slowing trying to do some behind the scenes work on the site
First off, I did some minor adjustments to the site layout to try and make it look cleaner. You may have noticed that I moved the page links down on top of the category links. I hope everyone is cool with that, I personally think it makes navigation a bit easier.
I also changed the URL structure of the site, eliminating the /blog portion from all links. It was a daunting task to make this change, as I had to move basically the whole site and hope that nothing would break…I think everything is cool though. If you still have any pages with /blog bookmarked, they should still work as I set up redirects for all links that have /blog to the new structure. Let me know if you come across any issues.
If anyone was on the site last night, you may have noticed a featured articles slide-show on the homepage. I am still deciding on how I want to implement it, but basically it will be a picture slide-show showing the 5 latest featured articles. It’s sorta cool, not totally sure if I am set on it, but we’ll see. It seemed to slow down the page load time which I don’t like.
Also, due to popular demand, I have decided that I will go ahead and make a FORUM for the site. I am hoping to have it up sometime next weekend. I really should be studying right now; I have tons of tests coming up this week, so I’ll work on it after the wave of work ceases.
That’s it for now, thanks for supporting the site and don’t forget about the contest on Monday! Also, let me know if you have any other suggestions for the site. :)
