I’ve needed to re-design the Box for a while now and I finally buckled down and got it done. It’s not perfect by any means, but I think it’s a huge improvement from V3. I still have some work to do, but I was happy enough with the theme to go live. I’ve had a few problems with the comment form, which I plan on fixing, as well as a new “About page” and a few other additions that you might notice in the near future. More after the jump.
I hope everyone likes the new design. I put a ton of work into it and I’m pretty happy with the outcome. The main thing I think everyone will like is the big Google ad is no longer at the top of any of the single post pages, woohoo! I don’t sell anything here on BittBox, but I’m going to bite-the-bullet and get rid of that big ad (my best performing Google ad), not only because my readers don’t like it, but I don’t either.
What’s new in BBv4? – Here’s a quick overview:
- No Google ad at the top of posts.
- Cleaner, (hopefully) easier to use design.
- Gravatars now display in Comments
- Better search feature. (wordpress default search kinda blows, now using Google)
- Tag Cloud Browsing (*note, I haven’t tagged everything yet)
- Twitter updates :) In the Sidebar
- Added Most Popular content in the sidebar.
- Footer Navigation
- No Google ad at the top of posts. ha ;)
I’m also working on an ‘FAQ’ and ‘About’ page for everyone. I’m hoping the FAQ will save me a few emails, and I think it’s time I came out of my shell and went un-anonymous. I’m just glad that I got the new theme up and running. Please feel free to let me know if there are any issues with the new theme by using my contact form. Otherwise, feel free to leave your feedback in the comments!Learn how to earn $125 or more per hour as a freelancer - Click Here
