The New Look of Wordtrip

Postby charlesp » Mon Jul 04, 2005 12:24 pm

FYI We're updating the look of Wordtrip. The basic design is up now, and enhancements and tweaks will be coming over the next few weeks. Please, e-mail us at webmaster@wordtrip.com if you're having troubles.

It surprised me, but I like it.

FYI new thing... the plot points now link to an a9.com (which is google with extra features brought to you by amazon.com) search for each entry.

Looks like the personal blogs are being tucked away though... they don't scroll anymore...

well, they're getting removed from the scroll but getting their own button on the top nav area.

We're focusing more on the reading and writing aspects of the site.

I'm dizzy with change. Rocking and staggering around my room - where am I? Who am I?

Perhaps the new design will inspire us to write as we never have before. Write like a psycho killer and be proud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I'm not sure if I like the new design yet. This design is just so busy. It might take me a bit to get used to it. I really liked the old design. It was simple and straightforward.

Well angel, we've got something else in the works as well... a simple page to use when you're on the site for a while and just want to keep up with the recent topics. Stay tuned :D

I'll definitely keep an eye out for that! I'm really starting to love this forum. The new design just made me a bit dizzy.

you're not the only person to say this... but I find it odd as clicking on the logo has always been the way back to the main page... and it still is.

Well I think the menu listing on the bottom of the page might be well served on the top, too, to serve members' "familiarity"--for some of us clicking on "Home" on that menu list is our normal way back to the main page...

I always used the logo to get back home... didn't even realize there was another way to do it. Funny how we all do things differently on the same site. 8)
