After many months of tinkering, the new site is finally here! Things for Boys is now on WordPress! The look of the site is similar to the old blogger one, but you will find it has had a bit of freshen up and there are quite a few new fun features.
At the very top of the site is a new navigation menu. On the right you’ll find a search box and on the left are my category indexes. This menu is sticky and will stay at the top of the page as you scroll down the screen. On computers you can hover to access the dropdown menus and on mobile devices a single tap will do the trick.
The site is now mobile friendly! It’s lovely and easy to read on any sized device.
The indexes themselves have had a makeover and you can now browse through them all visually…so much better than the old title list! Click on the images or the titles to go through to the post. Also, as you scroll down, the ‘up to top’ button will appear. You can click this to go straight back up to the top of the page, without having to scroll up.
The blog now features a home page with the latest posts laid out all pretty. You can also see the latest Sewing 101 posts at the bottom. To view the blog in the traditional blog view (a list of posts), click on the ‘Blog‘ menu next to the ‘Home’ menu.
Head on over, take a look around and have a play with the new features! I did all the work myself, so if you find anything wrong or broken, or even something you just don’t like, please leave a comment or send me an email and let me know. This site is for you after all!
