First off, thank you to everyone who has provided suggestions and ideas for improving the beta of the new Plagiarism Today. The feedback has been tremendously helpful.
Overall, most people have been very positive about the new look and several people have made very good suggestions about how to improve the site.
I’ve taken many of those suggestions to heart and I’ve created a second version of the beta.
Once again, I am seeking your input and advice on this new layout. Below the fold are the changes made to this layout and the new known issues.
- Copyright 2.0 Show is moved to where the news section was. This was done because there is no clear divide between “News” and “Articles” but definitely one with the podcast and the written works.
- Expanded both the Copyright 2.0 Show and the Articles column to include five entries each.
- A “Most Popular” section has been added above the Copyright 2.0 Show section to highlight the articles that are most popular on the site at that time.
- Removed the Archives drop down in the sidebar as it isn’t necessary.
- Added a “Subscribe By Email” link under the subscribe heading.
- Many new graphics to for the stories. Refined some of the old ones.
New Known Issues
All of the old known issues still apply. However, it is worth noting that the “Most Popular” list is not actually a most popular list, it is merely a visual placeholder.
It is currently just another list of the latest articles, something that will change once I move the theme to the live server and install the appropriate plugin.
Once again, I turn the theme over to your thoughts and feedback. I look forward to hearing what you have to say. Please, feel free to leave a comment on this entry, send me an email or message me on Twitter.
I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
