What do you think? First impressions? Questions? Suggestions?
I still have many more things to do but I wanted to get this out as fast as possible. Top 3 things on the to-do list (which are coming very soon!) are live chat/group chat, a HEthen google map and a nicely put-together list of HEthen success stories to inspire people to take the plunge and follow their bliss :)
This is only the beginning…
@krim98, what browser are you using? Version?
@vizznou, quote anything or anyone that says something legit, yes :)
@likeadragonfly, there are share buttons if you click through to the individual page. I’ll make a to-do to add some button on the list pages as well.
@sumtinprophetic, Yes I can. In fact, if anyone has suggestions for other categories for images/quotes/vids, speak up! I know I’m missing something. Although I do want to keep it as simple as possible.
The only thing i dont like at first glance is that when people see the sight for the first time it looks like the forum is the primary feature, as opposed to before the update when the articles looked like the primary feature. I prefered having articles look like the main feature, but maybe thats just my opinion. Also, to a complete internet noob the articles on the front page might look like ads… (might)
Besides that, i love this update! Nice job!!!
Good point Orinda ! I had the same feeling! Furthermore @jordan, would it be possible to make an Iphone app? Or is that too much work? The website is compatible obviously, cause I would not be writing right now, but maybe an app would be easier.
Edit: furthermore when I post a reply I get redirected to the first page od the topic instead of the last which is a little bit annoying. And is there a quick way to go back from the current topic to the latest discussions? Like it used to be? Or maybe it is a flaw of my phone its browser.
Edit2: when I edit my post I am redirected to the last page like it should be, so fortunately this works well.
I just wanted to point out that the RSS feed is made of the HE articles but also the topics discussed and each and every answers written.
This morning I opened my RSS reader to find more that 180 items unread… that’s a lot, and in the middle of this tsunami of info were only the one post (Top 5 videos of Alan Watts) that I completely didn’t see as I haven’t scroll through all those lines of content.
I think the RSS feed should be set as to display only the articles. Or maybe create a RSS feed for the articles and one for all the discussions?
That said: thanks for the great work, great articles and really nice new version of the site:)
P.S. : excuse my grammar mistakes as english is not my first language
Love the new look, great stuff, can’t wait for the map and other features!
