And we’re back…

Posted by Eric

Well, admittedly the site was only down for about 30 minutes, but it’s now back and (IMHO) better than ever. Other than the swanky new paint job, there are a few new features that I’ve been wanting to set up for a long time. See below for a brief list.

The site now has a proper Contributors page with all of the reviewers listed. Moreover, you can now see all the reviews each person has written on their specific bio page. So, if you happen to share a certain reviewer’s tastes, you can easily see what books they liked (or didn’t).

There’s a Reviews Archive and News Archive, each listing all articles by month (March 2006 was a good month for reviews—wow).

Finally, if you comment on an article, you can check the option to be notified of follow-up comments, which will hopefully make discussions easier to follow and take part in.

There are still a couple things to do, but I had to get the site out the door or I’d be fiddling with it forever. Let me know what you think in the comments.

The site looks vibrant and modern. Just in time for National Poetry Month.

Thanks, Maria. The site definitely needed some colour.

Eric: Have been golfing in Palm Springs so have just seen the new design: very, very attractive. This is as good as it gets. Congratulations.
All the best
