Hi everyone! Just a little quick article going over a few changes I’ve made to the Daily SPUF via this shitty chrome book. But first off, holy fuck using this chrome book is fucking tedious. Would be amazing for someone who spends all day on Facebook, but for someone who actually uses more than Chrome, it sucks.
Anyway! Changes time! The first thing you’ll probably notice is that the main menu has changed again. I realised that there’s no link to view all articles in chronological order (newest to oldest) so I decided to add the Articles button. This will let you browse all our article, twenty at a time. In the mean time, because I hate large menus, the FAQ page has been moved to a submenu on About, since they’re pretty much related and say the same thing in two different ways. I doubt regulars really read either page anyway.
That being said, several pages have been updated. Particularly the About page, which is now slightly more accurate. The How to Contribute page has also been updated with how to actually log in and get an account, since the unofficial SPUF Network is currently down. TheSupremeCommander is currently busy with real life, but don’t worry, I’ve got workarounds for most things, so anyone who wants a new account or access to their current account can just message me and I’ll hit you up. There’s a couple of small changes here and there too. Aabicus now has admin powers, so if anything happens to both me and tsc, he can still cover our asses and make/edit accounts. He’ll be scheduling articles for the upcoming month while I’m without a laptop.
Up next is a change that isn’t completely obvious unless you’ve attempted to browse the Daily SPUF on a a very small screen. Finally, after so long, I have added a Mobile Version to the Daily SPUF, so you can more easily browse the site on a smaller screen. This mostly applies to smartphone and tablet users. The front page slider is more mobile friendly, and the large list of posts is changed with a link to the Articles page, because the Nuntilus theme seems to hate anything mobile. The WordPress dashboard (what you see when you log in) is mobile friendly already and that remains unchanged for now. But yeah, should be much easier to navigate. There’s also the standard search function which is good. A cool little feature though is that the top of your browser will turn grey to match the rest of the site. It looks neat and was a piss-easy addition.
One downside to the mobile theme is the lack of a mobile random button, but since you can easily access all articles, that’s not such a big issue. I’ll work on adding a random button somewhere.
If you prefer the desktop site, there’s a button to switch between the two on the bottom of every page. Some people *cough*aabicus*cough* prefer desktop sites no matter what.
Anyway, if you notice any little glitches or anything like that, let me know and I’ll do my best to fix them. And if there’s any little addition you’d like to see, again, let me know.
