As you can see, I’ve made a few changes to the design of Modern Mechanix. It’s the first redesign since, well, ever. I am sure there are going to be issues over the next few days and I’d like to hear about them. If you encounter a bug, don’t like a font choice, or find something is missing, please feel free to commend on this post.
I’ve totally rewritten the back-end code for the blog and along with the new, less fragile theme it will be much easier for me to add new features and functionality. I’ve also moved the blog to a new, much faster server.
There are a few things you might want to check out with the new theme. While I’ve been tagging posts for sometime, there wasn’t really any way to see a list of them. That functionality is now in the side bar, and I’ll be adding a page with a complete list soon. The pages for an individual publication (example) and issue (example) have been revamped and are, I think, a lot more usable. The Cover Gallery has been revamped, but I’m not linking to it on the home page until I see what effect it has on performance (there are a heck of a lot of images on that page).
The next things I have planned are to make the search functionality and the comments system both suck less. If you have any particular changes you’d like to see there, please let me know.
Welcome to the new site, and please let me know what you think.
