The moose migration is in full swing. Watch this space for news about site changes.
Recap of known site theme issues/concerns:
– The front page posts needs to be broken into two groups: featured posts (selected by editors) and everything else. We are reviewing other themes now. Until we settle on something, all new posts will post on top and roll the old posts down. We may manually adjust the date/time on the posts to keep the most important ones on top.
– Fonts and colors: The default font is too thin, needs more purple.
– The header area (logo and size) is still going through some transformations. There are some limitations as to what we can do there.
– The commenting system needs ratings and the comment box needs a different look: it is too big and fills the screen with unnecessary white space. Also, there is a need to track replies.
Site Change Log:
Thursday, May 14 we installed a new theme, MH Magazine Lite (you can view a demo at the link.) There were many problems with it, the most critical being that it did not allow us to resize our reading area.
Wednesday, May 13 at 1pm Eastern we changed out the front page to test a Static Front Page. It was immediately reverted.
