Monday Housekeeping: Backend Updates

Last night I performed a fairly major site update. Most of the changes are of the under-the-hood variety, but there are a few that you’ll notice. As always, if something seems amiss, please let me know. Here’s the rundown.

  • General Performance: The site should be a little bit snappier now. I should also be able to use high quality images without sacrificing load time. Let’s see how that goes.
  • Slider Improvements: The front-page slider should be behaving much better across all browsers. In the past, it would blow up in size and use full-sized images instead of thumbnails. It should also be more responsive to touch on the iPad.
  • Callout Button: There’s a callout button under the slider for special content. It could be useful. Aesthetically, I don’t like it. What do you think?

Coming Soon

  • Pagination: You’ll be able to browse the site through numbered pages of content again, as opposed to just “next” and “previous” pages. I’m having a bug with this at the moment, but to hope to resolve it soon. I really missed that feature from the old site.
