Tweaking4All Updated !!!

If you are a regular visitor, then you have already noticed the “big” changes. 

We recently (hence the 3 day down time) changed a few things here at Tweaking4All.

The most obvious changes are of course the look of the website. A cleaner and easier on the eyes look.

With the changes a few things got “lost”, most importantly all the comments that users have placed – and I’m really sorry about that since regular visitors contributed a great deal … my apologies for that.

I hope everybody will enjoy the new Tweaking4All …




What Changed?

When you browse through the pages you will notice most of the changes right away (the visual part) but you might not see some of the new improvements – and I consider that a good thing. Change should not make “new things” become obnoxious … 

Look and Feel

I completely started from scratch designing and developing the “theme” – and people that know me personally, know this has taken a lot of iterations.

The main considerations where;

  • Pleasant on the eyes – easy to read, modern look.
  • Focus on reading an article – increased readability.
  • Better editor for comments and forum.
  • Responsive design (cellphone vs tablet vs desktop).

 

Functionality

Besides the look, new and/or improved functions have been added;

  • Forum – After years we have a forum again.
  • Messaging – Users can contact each other.
  • Downloads – We’re using a better download mechanism.
  • Rich Editor – Allowing better comments and forum posts.
  • Multi domain – Tweaking4all.com (English) and Tweaking4all.nl (Dutch).
  • Retina support – Enhanced icons that stay crystal sharp on Retina screens.
  • Responsive – Try it yourself: resize your browser and see what happens!
  • Responsive – Mobile users can choose: mobile view or desktop view. It’s up to you.
  • etc.

 

What did we loose?

Well, this big of a change did come at a price (besides the enormous amount of work);

  • We lost the comments …
  • Some articles got dropped (outdated) and will be replaced in the near future.
  • Links are no longer the same … (which from an SEO perspective sucks!)

 

Enduser in mind …

In the end I did most of this to enhance the user experience … and I hope you enjoy the new Tweaking4All.
