Blog Redesign Screenshot
This post is mainly for those of you following along via RSS (almost 800 of you, woohoo!). Anyone who still sticks with the archaic method of actually visiting websites will already know about our new look and its attendant problems.

As you read in my last post (you did read it right?), we are doing an overhaul on the 100k site. The goal of this redesign is to make it easier for visitors to find information and to clean up all the mess that gets inevitably made when you spend a year or so doing whatever seems best at the time. We also apparently wanted to add some unneeded frustration to our lives by once again entering a WordPress customization process we barely understand.

Anyway, we would love it if a few of you stopped by the site and made a suggestion or two while our work is in progress. Those of you on Internet Explorer are likely to find the experience unpleasant as we have some browser compatibility issues, but we would still love the feedback. Remember, this is an ongoing project and we are not WordPress development gurus. Be nice, but tell us what you think.

How can we make it easier to find things? What type of posts should we be highlighting for newbies? What other information is it important for us to have as we continue to flesh the site out?

Lay it on us in the comments.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

Looks great, guys! Nice work.

The site looks great – good work. It would be nice to see some more images / graphics, etc. Also, it would be great if the smaller article links below the two latest postings, had an indication of how many comments there are. I still visit your site daily and always look at the enriching comments. Now there is no way to tell if I should go back to some particular article because I do not know if there are new comments or not.

Other than that, looks nice and keep up the great work!

Sorry for spamming – I just noticed “recent comments” section. Well.. “duuh” me for not having seen it right away. Ok, so it is already there and it does make sense. I still would prefer to see actual information next to the article title, but that is just my preference.

Coming from this latest realization, right now the information and the layout seems to lack a very clear hierarchy. Maybe it has something to do with font size being too uniform throughout titles and links, or maybe not enough white space around individual parts of the layout.. just thinking out loud about my impressions.

I am a near daily site reader and I love the new look. I would just reiterate what Janis said about the abilibty to view new comments. Either the way it was, being able to see the numeber of comments per post or something more than (5) of the most recent comments. By the time I come back to this site there could be (10) new comments, depending on the contorversy of the post. :)

Also along the lines of images, is there a way for those of us who do not tweet to see the images without clicking through to your twitter page? I have found myself reading the twitter page to see the construction progress. I suppose the simple answer is for me to join twitter. Or could you just have full text of each tweet for (5) – (10) tweets on this homepage?

Also, lovign the construction photos. More please!

The “About Us” link at the top is getting pushed down for some reason so it is not inline with the other orange links at the top of the page.

Looking at your screen shot the Search box is also getting pushed down and is overlapping the white part of the page, and the magnifying glass is shifting over to the right a bit till its above the search box.

Safari 3 on OSX.

I can email you a screen shot if it will help.

Greg – I’m on Safari 3.2.1 and don’t see any of those issues. What exact version are you on?

The comment issues are good points and I should be able to remedy this once I get some time to prod through the code. We also need to put a lot more work into our sidebar and archives page to help people find what they want easier.

We have dropped the ball on images lately, but will pick up shortly. We’ll probably put most images on the project pages along with final details of the projects. One of the issues, is that we have so many past posts on our thought process and decision making, that it’s very hard to find exactly what the final decisions were. I detailed project page listing all final products and systems and pointing to the most relevant posts should go a long way in solving this frustration for many visitors.

We can’t really show the twitter pics to my knowledge on the blog. I have to admit that I have gotten lazier with posting and pics since I have started the twitter account. I need to remedy by posting more updates and pics on the actual blog again…

I’m on the same version – I’ll email you a screen shot.

Triple the request to be able to see new posts. I imagine that folks are still discovering the 100khouse, and as they discover old blog entries, may be able to contribute to them. Or there may be updates to old blog entries for other reasons. A “most recent comments” feature would allow recent comments to old blog entries to be seen, and allow comments to be made to the blog entry where they’re most appropriate, rather than hijacking the latest blog entry with an old topic.
