LES Blog improvments - vent your feelings
The change to a WordPress-based blog yesterday was noticed by many and as always when there is change, some hate it and some accept it.
Making the change yesterday was not to show a finished product, its intention was to get the ball rolling and making adjustments as we go along.
One thing that I was taught in my early days was that if you keep tinkering with details, you will never release anything. Because there will always be things to adjust, fine-tune, "make a little better".
Sometimes, and this was one of these times, it's better to push it out in the open, watch the reactions and act upon the constructive feedback that is given.
we can all see the current state of the blog by visiting https://lowendspirit.com
The first version was created with the intention to cover some, maybe most of the "must-have" features.
- Using the same green color as the forum
- Easy readability (thank you @Not_Oles for your comments)
- Possibility to display all authors on a post
- Including the old Grav posts
- And some other things that I can't remember at the time of writing this post.
Here is another alternative where I've tried to match a couple of the early comments.
- less green in the sidebar
- not so high header
- working menu on mobile view
- smaller post images (featured image in WP) - less pixelated
- Not a LEB copy (I honestly must say that I haven't visited LEB since before I left LET, I need help on this)
- removing the "mobile view feeling" when browsing the web view.
- Spacing in the sidebar - Recent Forum threads & Recent Comments
