DW Makeover and New Mobile Site

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 6.13.41 PM

Hey, check it out — DW got a little makeover (and if you’re looking at this on a phone or tablet, you’ll see a whole new mobile site — one that is cleaner and should be much easier and enjoyable to read). Thanks to Zel Creative for the design and development — I highly recommend them for your WordPress website needs.

Functionally, everything remains about the same. In the sidebar, you’ll still see social media icons at the top if you’d like to follow me on any of these streams. Lower down, there’s a search bar, an archive tab where you can search posts by month, followed by a forum search bar, and finally recent comments and forum activity (on phones, you’ll see sidebar content at the bottom of the page). On your phone, you can access the menu (including forums) on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) located on the right side of the header.

I think that’s it — hope you like it!

    Great. Only issue I found is when I hit forum it doesn’t take me to the list (chat/advice/meet ups) . – just to an error page.

      If you click on the name of the forum, you’ll land in the right spot.

    Looks great! I’ve been sans phone for 5 (5!) days now. I’ve never felt so naked! And so unconnected with the world, yet more connected with the immediate world, if that makes sense. Also, deep thought: how the hell did mothers rock babies to sleep in the middle of the night in the days before smart phones? It must have been so boring. I’m phone-less because it died after I stuck it in a glass of water in the middle of the night. I 100% blame the baby. It’s been 5 (going on 6!) days already because I haven’t found time to go to the Sprint store to get a new one because of work and baby (baby!) . . . All of this to say: when (if?) I ever get a new phone, I look forward to checking out the new mobile site.

      We miss you too 🙂 I’d be happy to come down and babysit that adorable baby of yours so you can go pick out a new phone and maybe get some dinner or something. Will he snuggle? I like snugglers. Mine doesn’t like to snuggle.

        Deal! Except I don’t have a snuggler either. He seems to only want to snuggle when he’s so tired he’s about to fall asleep. I’m not sure that even counts as a snuggle; it’s more a matter of he is too tired to protest.

        Mine won’t even snuggle when he’s tired anymore. Sometimes he will – like once every 3-4 weeks. But mostly he likes to give sneak hugs/kisses and run away.

    Loving the new site layout. In particular how the lines for one post look a bit closer together, or maybe the space between posts is bigger, so it’s easy to tell where a new post begins. I also like the formatting for reader questions which really draws the eye.
