If you checked out the site in the past 24 hours, you may have noticed that things seem a little different. It’s a subtle visual change, as the general design stayed fairly similar, but this is definitely a brand new techese.
Without further ado, welcome to techese 4.0. This is the first real visual refresh since November 2011.
But it is so much more than a visual refresh. There are plenty of functional updates as techese has been updated from Squarespace 5 to Squarespace 6.
Here are a few of the changes you’ll enjoy:
- Responsive design for mobile devices (!!!)
- Linked List items will now use Daring Fireball style title links. These are signified with an → to the right of the title. (I’m not updating the back catalog, so this is from now on).
- Simple liking of a post is now available using the little heart below each post.
- Images now use a lightbox if you want to see them larger.
And a couple things to note:
- Permalinks are found below every post by clicking the date.
- The RSS feed has changed to http://techese.net/articles?format=rss, which I have done a 301 redirect for. In my testing, things like the soon-to-perish Google Reader made the switch just fine, but you may want to update the address anyway.
That’s all I have for now. Enjoy the update.
