Our New Look & Features: v4

Dec 1, 2010 • 4:10 pm | comments (56) by twitter | Filed Under Blog Administration

I am incredibly proud to announce we have launched our new design and platform today. After almost four years since our last redesign, aka version 3 and almost seven years of being on MovableType, we now have a brand new design and system to power this site.

Dare I say, the nicest looking search related news site on the Internet?

What is new?

  • Major design update
  • Magazine-like home page
  • Much improved commenting system, powered by Disqus
  • Categories now available at the top of the page
  • Improved Sharing features
  • Weekly video featured on right side of all pages
  • New picture of the day feature
  • Home grown content management system so I can have full control
  • Much more...

Please play around with it and let me know what you think in the comments below. There is just too many new things going on to list them all.

I'd like to thank my awesome team at RustyBrick, specifically Mabe for the outstanding design, Mike for the coding and Ronnie for uploading this new site. It was a huge undertaking, years in the making and I am so happy it is live.

We will have tons more coming in the near future, but we had to launch at some point. Remember the old design? Here is a picture:
