You are not seeing things – things look different. Well, not THAT different. I am one of those folks who likes things the “way they are” or at least mostly that way. If you can tweak it and make it better I am all for that. As you can see I/we have loaded in the same theme from over at the DeltaMileageRun page to DeltaPoints. What does this mean and why?
Amazingly more than 40% of you read DeltaPoints on a mobile device. That means the OLD theme that was not responsive just did not cut it anymore. There is no longer any need to pinch things to look around. This theme is responsive. It is also not the final draft, but the rest of the changes will be less major than this one. At some point, rather than a stock theme, DeltaPoints will have a BA in-house built one.
You will, even on desktop, notice some major changes that many have asked for. The first is with photos and page loading. You will notice when you click on a photo it loads full screen AND you have the choice for “previous / next” to be able to quickly flip through the full screen shots. Much better! Plus, the home page should load a TON faster as other than the most current post all the rest are “snippets” that is, you don’t get 15 days worth of posts and photos slowly loading. Also MUCH better.
What is next? There still are many smaller changes on deck. Notice my 747 with vapor trail is gone? It is not gone for good and will come back, but the current theme does not allow it. I made the trade off for now as by year end I think over 50% will read the blog on mobile and waiting longer for the custom theme was not OK.
Let me know what you think so far, knowing it is still a work in progress. Also let me know what device you are using and what browser. That REALLY helps so I can test on other “stuff” – René
