You may have noticed that Wesleying looks a little different, and I’m here as a simple guide. First off, I should note that there aren’t really any new features on the site, more just a reshuffling of visual mumbo jumbo. You’ve no doubt immediately noticed the new header which does not have a silly looking cardinal on it nor childish handwriting. Furthermore, there is now information both above and below the header image. Above you will see the featured posts, with pictures and titles, both of which link to the articles. Underneath the new header you see a menu which has replaced what was formerly at the top of the right hand sidebar. This menu includes the filters (events only and non-events only), the submission pages, as well as the RSS feeds for Wesleying (for posts and comments). Finally, at the top of the righthand sidebar you now see the upcoming events, followed immediately by the weather.
Of course, not all of the changes made might be considered for the better, or they could be improved upon. There are also bound to be bugs, even though I spent a lot of time making sure there wouldn’t be any. If you have feelings on the matter, please feel free to give your opinions in the comments or send me an email at griffindy[at]gmail[dot]com.
UPDATE: The new menu bar does not appear to be working for most users, a problem that I had not come across in my testing. I have removed the menu bar and put its content. back into the sidebar. In looking at everyone’s advice from the comments I have also attempted to resize the featured posts at the top to a more reasonable size.
