Now that the first posts of 2014 have been uploaded, I’ve spent some time tweaking the site to make it load faster and look cleaner. Some of the changes made were:
- Placing the author bio above the post to serve as an introduction. If your bio is missing, feel free to email it to me and I’ll get it on the site.
- Removed unneeded plugins, which resulted in a faster page load and browsing experience.
- Added a related post plugin to show readers similar titles to the one their reading.
- Installed newer social media sharing buttons that were easier to read.
- Switched to Social Comments to allow readers to share posts and comments using Google+ and Facebook.
- Added a search field to the footer, which make it easier to look up specific posts.
- Added a feedback form for any comments, suggestion or questions readers may have.
I hope the changes continue to make SSM a great place to hangout. If see anything you would like added, drop and line and we’ll take it under consideration. Until next time, keep writing!
