It’s been a few weeks since I made some changes to the site here and I wanted to take a moment to inform you of some of the changes. Besides the new look, here are a few other features that may interest you:
With over 280 categories, the breadth of content at Climbingnarc.com is growing literally every day. With a new and improved toolbar, browsing categories has never been easier. You can browse through the dropdown menus that appear when you place your mouse cursor over a Category like Climbers or Climbing Areas. (I realize it is annoying that the menus are too long to fit on the screen without scrolling, and I will try to fix it when I get time/knowledge.)
The Climbing Areas menu will display a high level State/Country view of areas that can be drilled down further into specific areas. See the example at right for California that expands to reveal 9 different Californian climbing areas that you can select from.
Selecting an area will bring up a new page with brief excerpts from any posts that match the category you selected. See the below page for posts that relate to the Buttermilks.
|The improved Archives page now lists the last 30 posts for you to browse through.
||A small News & Notes section will feature small news briefs not suitable for longer posts.The box below News & Notes features Recent Posts, Popular Posts, Recent Comments and a 4th and yet to be determined subject.
You may have noticed that the comments section looks a bit different. There is now an image associated with each comment that defaults to random slices of rock from around the country (1st person to identify the location of them all wins a prize?) If you would like to have your own image displayed, it is quite easy (and free). Simply go to Gravatar.com where you can create an account that ties your preferred image to your email address across all blogsites that utilize gravatars.
And finally, a few other page of note that I either fixed or added:
- Links – Previously broken but now fixed. Want your link added, let me know
- Pictures – Including pictures from ABS Nationals OpenFinals that I somehow never got around to talking about.
- Random – Located in the very top menu, the Random link will take you to a random post in the Archives. Pretty interesting to see what you might stumble across.
If you ever notice any problems, just leave a comment or contact me via my contact page.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more chances to win free stuff!
Narc, Impressive. The only thing I dont like as much as the old setup is that you have to click to finish reading. It was nice to just keep scrolling.
How about ‘most recent comments.’
I really miss that feature…
Good call. I put that in place of the most commented posts listing.
