techese 4.0

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, 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.
