No, this isn’t another post about the CBA negotiations. This is a post about some major changes we will be going through here at BSB over the next week. We’ve had this design here for the life of the blog –almost four years now– and it’s time for an overhaul.
You may have noticed the first change yesterday. Due to an upgrade in the blogging platform, we no longer need to use block quotes for quoting folks on Twitter. We can embed the entire tweet, with links to follow, retweet, or reply right on the post. It’s a nifty little feature that we like around here.
Second, you may have noticed some of the old menu options have been disappearing here and there. We haven’t removed them, we have just started preparing the for the real overhaul you’re going to see some time next week.
There is going to be a complete redesign of this blog, and it’s going to be custom-made. After spending months scouring the readily available theme designs that we could just download and install, none seemed to really fit what we were looking for. Those that did were already in use by other blogs, and we didn’t want to steal the design.
So, we went custom. The design is almost finished, and will likely include a new header image (well, a header image, because we don’t have one right now). Most of the features we have here will remain, and you will see the reappearance of some of those removed pages.
Stay tuned, the next few days are going to be really exciting here.
