This is just a quick update for any readers who may have visited recently and found the site in a state of transition. It’s been over a year since the last major overhaul to the Expeditionr web site, and I’ve been wanting to upgrade some of the site options for several months now. In keeping with the seasonal changes, I decided to do some Spring cleaning and spent the last few days updating the site software to incorporate a brand new “green” theme. This update serves to spruce up the site’s outer shell significantly from a visual perspective and provides some brand new features that should make visiting a bit more interactive.
In addition to the traditional article listing, the home page now carousels through a selection of the more popular posts as well as listing recent visitor comments, and a new option for visitor subscriptions that allows readers to easily keep tabs on the latest Expeditionr updates, posts and visitor feedback. Lastly, rather than traditional paging methods, the newly added Archives area makes locating older content much quicker, listing the last 50 articles by default, along with categories and archive dates based on a total article count for that item. Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be continuing to tweak the site’s features so please be patient if you find the site temporarily unresponsive or otherwise preoccupied. Each overhaul, be it visual, functional, or both, has the underlying intention of improving content delivery to you, the reader. I’m always interested in site feedback, so if you experience any problems with the latest updates or would like to leave a comment in general, please feel free to contact me.
