Yesterday around 4 PM the new WoodyBoater went live, and in no time 35 comments.
WOW, it’s wonderful to know you all are still here. I know Greg needed some shock therapy to stay alive. It’s okay Greg, it was just a long nightmare, Plug away. And Art is still trying to figure out how to comment. And Paul Harrison just commented an emoji? OH GOD! Is he speechless? Or waiting for a spew? We will find out soon in Lake Dora.
This may sound strange, but I missed all of you.
Even Dim, I didn’t realize this emotion would take over. Anyway, today we are just gonna milk the launch a little more. And some more info on the new site.
The headers will be a little more evergreen.
As in not changed daily. But will change, with photos and video as needed. And not cary over to the story page, and as you can tell, each image is header size. Oh ya, so it’s not less headers but more. Photography has been a key ingredient for us here. Just wait for some Dane, Lapkin, Kent O, and Kays gold. The Archives is all 6,000 stories and 50,000 images.
Some issues we know about.
On many stories the images are all different sizes, and I need to manually go through them and fix them. So that will take some time, and some have double images, that also will be repaired on may of them.
Ad banners are on the home page only.
On subsequent pages, we will have space for other info, but I do like the clean feeling. I will add, that to many it may be a bit odd of a feel, but over a week or so you get used to it, and going back seems a bit crazy busy. So thats being worked out. Like a new barn, it fills up. Nature deplores a vacuum.
So enjoy, we are here for you and now for the next generation of you, even though they don’t give a ship.. But they will. For them kids, we also took great care to make it all work on your phone and ipad. Yup, it was like designing three different sites in one. Here the intro video again in case you missed it. Tomorrow, behind the scenes of how it was produced. Milk will be served.
