It’s very easy to take time to redesign a site, code it out, make sure it’s all 95% there and then leave it. When I launched the new site, I knew there were things that I still had left to do, but finding time to fix them was hard to come by. I’m glad that I finally got around to fixing the following things:
Search is Back
The other day Scoot chastised me for taking away the ability to search on my site. I didn’t realize that it was a very widely used feature, that is, until I wanted to find something specific that I had written about before. Have no fear, now you can not search no more.
Master Archive Page
After the redesign, I noticed a fall-off of traffic to posts that didn’t appear on the home page. I didn’t think much of it, until I realized the ONLY way to reach older posts was to go to the category archive pages. Wow, smart. Now, in the main navigation, as well as under the three posts on the front page, is a link to the archive page where you can find ALL of the posts I’ve written.
Who Said What and When?
Do you like reading what other people have to say on my site? I do. If you’re like me, well now you don’t have to look around for when someone has made a comment. Just subscribe to the comments rss feed and you’ll be able to read them as soon as they’re posted approved by me. I’m pretty sure it’ll work most anywhere, if not, just let me know and I’ll try to fix it.
That’s all I got for now. If there’s a feature you’re just dying to see, tell me and I’ll laugh at you.
