We launched a new website design for One Quart Magazine today. Our web guru Timo Bontenbal guides you through his new design. With the new improvements to the site, Timo explains how we're trying to deliver more and better content to you, our readers.
Bigger and better than before
We have thrown everything out of the window and started from scratch. In designing the new page we did user testing to ascertain what the new site design needed. We really focused on how to get the right content to our readers and the speed the site loads. One big factor for speed is changing the server – we are in the process of doing this and your daily One Quart Magazine will have a new speedy server that will deliver the content to you in no time.
Finding the right content to read
With the new design we’ve tried to maximize the possibility of you finding the content you want to read . We now have more new articles on show than before and with editorial recommends, we’ll be highlighting the best features that we think are available on the site. We’re still a trying to get better at this and will add new features in the future.
Some new features
Search. Via the search feature you can look for individual articles, regular features and search the site by ‘keyword’.
Author pages. You can now type in an author and find that contributors features for One Quart all on one page.
