You didn’t think we would let our 5th year in operation go by without something something. We may have missing out to do some cool stuff during the actual month of October, but we are making it up during November and December. First up was the launch of our new series on the site, “Street Series“. This is where started doing short and to the point video segments of artists we thought had skills! Then we released our first ever Holiday Gift Guide with some very cool and stylish tech suggestions for this season. Up next is a site redesign!
Now we actually quite liked our current G Style look, but felt it was missing some cool elements that we wanted to add. So while we kept the essence of G Style Magazine, we made a few design tweaks and added a few new things. So how about we take you through a little walk through shall we…
First off the back we’ve change a couple things on the homepage, and what you see here isn’t over yet. Right now we are missing our new featured post section, where we will have a the posts that we really want you to check out. Below that we have changed the way you see the most recent posts. Not you can see the most recent 4 post with a nice visual picture of it, as well as the category and the day it went up. Then if you want to see some more recent post, we have another section below with the date, title, and who wrote it. Another thing, if you just clicked on the image to the left, you’ll see we added a nice pop up for our images.
To your right, we are finally giving our growing gallery of images some shine. So now on any page you go to on G Style, you’ll be able to see a random selection of nine images straight from our Gallery page. You’ll be able to click on them and take a quick look.
And last at the bottom of every page, we’ve add a few links to our various pages around the Social Media scene. So you will be able to see links to our Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare page. Come Like, Follow, or Friend us there!
Now that is just on our homepage. Throughout the site you’ll know that our category sections have the same format as homepage with the nice visual picture, date a article was published, and category. We also now have RSS feeds for just about anything you can think of. Want to follow just the Mobile Fashion section of the site? Then subscribe to just that RSS feed.
In any article now, we also changed out our “About the Author” box. The other one we had was lame, with this new one, not only do you see a picture of the writer and bio, but now you can see how many post he/she has written for G Style. You can even click on the his/her name and see an archive of just their posts. But wait, did you like what they wrote, want to email them about it? Well you can do it right from the About the Author box, or even see their own personal site (if they have one) and learn a little more about them.
Well that is it for out little walk through. We are still tweaking some stuff. Somethings aren’t working as they should yet, others we will be adding later, so stay tuned. While we finish our little makeover, we ask that you just bare with us. Thank you for all the support, 5 years later and we are still here. Oh yea stay tuned for next month, as if all goes to plan we will giving away a ton of stuff to you guys. This is our thank you from us, and right in time with the holidays!
