This is the new Wesleying!

It’s still a work in progress (hence the Beta sign in the corner), but the changes thus far should be immediately apparent.

Thanks to Sam DeFabbia-Kane ’11 for modifying the WordPress Sandbox theme to better fit our needs for the layout/design you see, which was created collaboratively by Wesleying contributors and is still a work in progress. More changes will be made in coming weeks to keep improving the site.

We now have a nifty events calendar, along with a box in the sidebar which will automatically list upcoming events. So no more weekend update posts, although a minimum of human effort will now allow you to know what’s going on all week.

You can also create a username which you can use to leave comments on the site. Or you can stay anonymous, your choice.

Still to come: an automatic submissions page for events and tips. And more! Maybe. You’ll see.

Unfortunately, due to some issues importing our archives from Blogger, no comments were imported from the old site. Sorry for this inconvenience, we’ll let you know when it’s fixed (it will be). In the meantime, you can access the full archives at the old Wesleying.

Thanks to everyone who donated funds last semester, this move would not have been possible without you. And of course, thank you readers, for your support and for visiting this site as often as you do.

Suggestions or comments (or compliments!) are welcome, leave them below.

    when i click to see what events are happening on a given day, i keep thinking that the date the event was posted (march 26 or whatever) is the day the event takes place… it’s listed funny. change it maybe?
    thanks

    the photo is cool but not for a website header… “wesleying” is all the way over to the side

    it would be nice if the calendar events changed color as you moused-over so you could distinguish between each link

    and it would look a lot cleaner/better with the old header, in my opinion

    i like the picture.

    i think the sidebar is too wide– could you make it a little narrower, so we have less scrolling to do to read the main posts?

    also it would be nice if the links in the posts were a color other than dark grey– it’s hard to tell that they’re links until you mouse over.

    I noticed the “Register” link on the upper right hand corner of the page. What are the benefits of registering?

    The sense that the grey text on the side was intended not to distract from the main content, but it’s very hard to read on a grey background.

    #6: The sidebar formatting is definitely something we are going to tweak.

    #7: Awesome feature: click that little speaker icon above where it says March 2009 on the calendar, and it’ll give you a .ical file that you can import into iCal, Outlook, Google Calendar, or what have you.

    We appreciate all your suggestions and compliments while we work to perfect Wesleying during this beta period.

    For the Automated week(end) roundup:
    Use different colors (or boldface) to separate the Dates from the events themselves; this makes the dates themselves, as well as the differentiation between the dates, more easily identified by the eye.
