Blog improvements

New postby 3ICE on Tue Dec 16, 2008 10:33 pm

I have reskinned the blog, check out the new looks and tell me what you think! (http://www.3ice.hu/blog/)
The biggest changes are:
  • No more post content on the main page, only the titles are listed.
  • Navlinks at the bottom.
  • My google translate script was placed on the top.
  • Categories are now inside a dropdown list to take up less space.
  • http://tutorial.3ice.hu/ is finally live.
  • Images have a grayish background and if you are on firefox they also have rounded corners

Please also vote in the poll above: Should the links open in a new window or not?

Although it is neat, people might just use Google translate works just to see it. I don't know many who would normally use it so i dont see its relevance being at the top of the page and the most commonly clicked items, unless they know the url , being at the bottom :)

Nice English...

Some people don't even know Google Translate exists.
Some people know about it, but would never think about using it.
Some people know about and sometimes use Google Translate, but don't have it bookmarked so every time they want something translated they need to find Google Translate first and then copy the URL... tedious task.
By placing those flags there, I make translation accessible to everyone.

p.s.: Here is the traffic per country chart:

People may use Google translate just to see what it does**

Ex) I did it to some random language once just to see it's effects. Although what are stats of
views in english vs any other?

70 914 English vs 54 649 Translated. So over 40% uses translation. Can't just ignore that 54 649, can I? :)
(56.48% vs 43.52%)

EDIT:
