Last night I went ahead and changed the look and feel of the blog here. Although it looks kind of the same there is huge difference behind the scenes. Our website is now able to be read on a tablet or iPad for the first time without having to squint. While the main site is still not 100% where I want it to be the blog here is almost they way I like it. Sure I could have done a total redesign but like most people I hate change and I am sure our members don’t like change much either.
One thing the new update lets us do is have larger photos on the site. Let’s face it we are all getting older and our eyes are not what they use to be. What made me make the switch mostly was that WordPress the software we use stopped showing comments on the post. To me that is what makes the site work! I love getting comments on the site, wish we would get more actually.
Another thing I updated was the forms here. I can now set up a spot where our members can upload a picture of their car with details without me having to go in and do things like resizing the pictures or formatting the post. All these things are time consuming.
I can also offer the ability to post information about Cadillacs by the members. Sometimes in the comments I wish we had more information. Earle’s comment the other day about what to have in your car when you come across the country is exactly what I wish I could write! Now we can have members create a post. That ability will be coming shortly.
