  1. Some ideas

    Welp, I commented on the first post about the site redesign yesterday and by now you have already made half the changes I proposed ^^. Anyway, at the risk of this being outdated soon as well, here are some things I'd like to see:

    -Hadline/smaller article display for the front page
    -A new cblog display that showed more cblogs, the biggest problem of the community section was that posts would get buried fast. That's good for the front page cuz news and stuff, but cblogs are a different beast. I think a grid view with four columns would be ideal. …

    • C-blogs (2)

      Thanks for getting the c-blogs up and running relatively quickly!

      Though, there still needs to be some minor UI formatting. Seems the About Me pages drag the actual blog content down until it ends and even once you can view the blogs it's awkwardly shifted to the far left.

      Not a huge issue, but it does look off for sure.

      • Blog view counter

        Is there any chance you guys could implement an (optional) view counter for blogs? Comments are a decent way to see how youre doing but more people view than comment. another site I blog on uses that feature and I tend to find that it gives a good idea of when to blog and what you should blog about-ala how close in proximity to a big news thing you can still expect a decent amount of eyes of/vs the point were no one cares that much anymore. Its a useful tool and if it can be implemented Id be interested…

          • add topic filters so that users only see news articles relevant to their interests.

            I'm just completely uninterested in Amiibo supply articles (although I understand that many readers are) and would like a way to remove it from the main page's new feed.

            • how about a Robot Green theme.

              it would be very cool to have a Robot Green theme for us to choose, and it would be in keeping with the spirit of Destructoid.

              • Condense the Frontpage sidebar

                05/25

                I'm not too fond of where the section of the cblogs stand right now in the current layout of the FP. Looking at my scrollbar, it's almost at the very bottom of the page. Current sidebar layout is like this:

                Ad
                Top 10 Wanted Games
                Previews
                Latest Videos
                Latest Podcasts
                Opinion/Editorial
                Ad
                Cblogs

                I believe that the cblogs are a valuable asset of this site that sets it apart form other game sites out there. So it pains me to see that fewer people are posting there recently. Among other reasons, I think its (lack of) presence in the…

                  I really enjoyed how the site used to have reviews + their scores on the side bar before the redesign. I'm more inclined to read reviews of high-scoring games rather than click through each one to find something that might be worth playing.

                  • Add Artwork to all Podcasts

                    Love Podtoid, but wish it had some sweet artwork to go along with it (in the RSS feed). It's a bummer to see it as the only podcast in my library that has just a default text image in place of what should be a green robot like the one at the top of this page :)

                    • Bug found:

                      There is a bug when looking at a review. At the right where there's "Latest Reviews", the scores are all the same as the current review you're looking at. Example: Infinity Runner appears to be a 7 from the review of Lost Within, when Infinity Runner has an actual score of 2.

                      • Talk with Feedly about linking to your mobile-format articles on mobile devices.

                        They link to the full beefy site, and there's so much meat I have to scroll horizontally. I don't know about other browsers, but Chrome Beta doesn't have text-wrap, and I end up relocating the mobile article myself in the newsfeed. Almost defeats the purpose, y'know?

                        • are customisation options coming back?

                          It seems like the website is finally pretty solid and consistent now, except for a couple of minor bugs (like fapping/dixoning cblogs). That said, I really liked the idea of being able to choose different layouts, resolution options, and generally being able to customise how I see the front page. Is that coming back or are you leaving it in the back burner for now?

                              the layout is way too wide and why does it require a click now on community to access the blogs or the forum?

                                There no longer seems to be a difference between Headline and Blog Style articles for the front page. I always preferred Blog Style.

                                  As of 05/10, 9:30 PM, CDT

                                  In the blog editor:

                                  - The "Preview" button hides your blog again. Even after you publish it.

                                  - Navigation bar. Click on one menu item (reviews, blogs, forums, etc). Click out. Entry vanishes.

                                  - An old issue but, sometimes I get an error when saving the blog, leading to a blank page (back then, it displayed the "Site is over capacity" (or something like that) page with the blue background and the Turvey drawing. Just annoying because there's always a chance of it happening every time you click "Save", and you lose your progress.

                                    (I hope that this is where you submit issues with the new layout...)
                                    The new "Mobilegeddon Update" brought a couple of issues to me in the latest version of the Opera browser (Opera 28 at the time of writing)

                                    To name a few:

                                    -Random elements (like the Destructoid logo, the Search bar and the drop-down menus for Filters, Reviews, and more) are now prefixed with a "stickfigure" head

                                    -The drop-down menus for Filters, Obsessions, Reviews, etc. get cut off by the rest of the layout and only display two to three items

                                      I don’t think it has everything to do with Opera, actually. It appears you’re using adblock, and it looks like a lot of elements are not going into your browser like icon fonts. Try whitelisting “www.fontawesome.com”; and “bulk2.destructoid.com”, our asset servers and see if that improves things.

                                      While the site, for the most part, seems to be working more or less fine now on computers (unless you want to use your blog - I can't get into anything relating to mine at all), the mobile part of this mobile-centric upgrade is another issue.

                                      The toilet edition used to load pretty fast and it was there for me right away to enjoy and use at my leisure. Now, though, it takes at least a full minute or two just for the site to actually load to the point where I can use it (I can scroll during these…

                                        Hi there! Sorry about all the kinks and thanks for reporting them! We’re moving so much code around this week that some things that were broken might conflict with a new patch. Your suggestions were all easy bugs to patch:

                                        We just pushed an update for the cblogs manager. 69 comments should be fixed now as well.

                                        You should be able to update your blogs now. If it gives you problems please let us know:

                                        http://www.destructoid.com/userblog_edit_post_manager.phtml

                                        We’re sorry the mobile site isn’t optimized yet, but we promise it will become super fast once we’re done. It’s unfortunately loading 1000px photos at this second which is causing the delay you’re experiencing, instead of loading mobile-optimized photos. We will do this as soon as humanly possible.

                                      • Site Design

                                        The new design is visually wonderful. It functions beautifully in both Safari and Chrome for iOS. However, I'm using the most recent version of Chrome on my macbook (no extensions) and the site is loading slowly. It scrolls sloppily in a way that causes me to slide right past news stories. And the headline banner loaded in a way that for 30 seconds every banner was visible and the text ran together over a few images. It feels like a mess of a design that functions terribly on desktop. It needs to be tightened up. Close the empty space. Simplify…

                                          Have a button that reverts the site back to the old style. I'm sure the new style looks great on a mobile device, but the text being ALL the way to the left is giving me a headache.

                                            that’s actually not on purpose, the site is supposed to look as closely to the old site as possible. There is a widescreen option now but it should be off by default

                                            I just pushed another update, try now?
