New Site Design

    Hi everyone! I'm pleased to announce that we launched our new site homepage and category page design today. Right now you can only see it on https://tatring.com but we plan to roll it out to the other sites as well. This design makes article photos more prominent in order to keep those high quality original photos coming! This is a responsive design that should look good on any device. To see for yourself, you can change the width and height of your browser to find out what it will look like on various tablet and mobile devices. One thing to note is that sites now have a rotating set of featured authors that are showcased in a box on the homepage. These are authors that have written a number of high quality articles for the site. Currently this design is only for the homepage and category pages, we hope for a redesign for articles soon.

    If you notice any bugs please let us know.

      Now we are talking, pinning those images is going to be a breeze.

      Looks very "chique" even though I don't know what the word means!
      As regards page load speed, could "progressive JPG"  be used where a low res image is displayed first which slowly gains clarity as the full image loads?

    HP should open a Pinterest account for each site. They'll go nuts over there.

    Being allowed to use an iframe would really be perfect.

    Despite the mobile version only loading a couple of paragraphs the site is very, very slow. The Page Speed Insights score for mobile for one article I tested is only 63/100. My own sites get 89/100. Google has just changed ranking scores in relation of mobile rendering and speed. Surely load speed can be improved????

    Looks great! Even though I feel much disturbed at the act of piercing tattoos, I appreciate the tattoo art and designs.

    This is really great! Would we also be kept in the loop whether this changes traffic and the overall flow? The traffic movement on the site, not search traffic, I mean. Would be really interesting.

    The pin board theme would work really well for Tatring. I do have a few questions, if any of you have the time to get back to me smile

    1. Did you consider different themes for different niche sites? I expect tatring to do really well with this pin board design, but maybe there's something else that would be best for caloriebee for instance.

    2. Would the new themes be setup on the other sites only after testing this one out? The page speed insights of the old and new themes have pretty much the same scores, so I don't see that as a big deal, of course improvements in this area may have some small benefits.

      Thanks for the feedback, lobobrandon!

      1. We did, and you make some good points. A unique design for each site (or, some unique elements per site, but same basic template) would be great, but we have other projects to focus on. At the same time, we wanted to make an improvement from what we have now. Certainly in the future this should be reconsidered.

      2. Yup. We plan to monitor the effects of the new design on TatRing for some time before releasing it on other sites. Stay tuned!

        Amazing! Thanks Marina, sounds good. Yup getting the sites out there and the remaining good hubs transferred to them is definitely on a higher priority among other things smile
