Welcome to the new Community

Posted by Mark

Starting today, the blogs forum is now called “Community”. With this name change comes a host of other changes all with the aim to make the community more user friendly as well as more pleasing to the eye.

You can access the community by clicking the link in the navigation strip up on top or by typing community.248am.com in your browser.

There are still more changes and additions coming to the blog which I’ll be rolling out one by one in the coming weeks.

ooops

Posted by Mark

So I kinda messed something up today and had to restore my blog from yesterdays backup. For those of you who left comments today and yesterday (particularly under the Cannoli post) you’ll notice they’re no longer there because of this fact. Sorry about that.

Minor blog facelift

Posted by Mark

So I’ve been working on a new theme for the blog which I’m going to launch in the next coming months but just a few months ago I was like you know what? I could probably introduce some of the new changes to the current theme and it will take me less than an hour of work. So I did just that.

The slightly modified changes are:

- a light grey backdrop with a soft shadow behind the white page to give it a raised feel
- a wider space for my posts which means I can now have larger pictures and videos
- new sharing icons at the bottom of the post for facebook, twitter and google
- clearer section tabs under the main header
