I’ve been thinking about updating this website for a while but I always ended up preferring to spend my time making new content. I finally decided to get to work and made a completely new website from scratch based on The7 WordPress theme. Finally came up with a proper logo also.
It took me 3 months to customize everything and I now have a clean responsive layout with much better post structure. Unlike Nostro v1 which was an outdated code mess, I wanted to make it the right way, this time using child theme, proper CSS overwrite and a few php tweaks. I managed to get the result I wanted.
I switched from red & black to black/grey with gold accent which makes the interface easier to read. The site might be a bit slower to load, especially on photo posts but the quality is much higher and the layout makes use of the entire screen space available.
I am now in the process of updating each individual post with the new layout starting with the most popular posts. It will take some time before I have it 100% done.
The website is looking great, you definitely did a good job on it! (It gives off a Deus EX Human Revolution feel) Keep up the amazing work.
Very cool. I liked the old website a lot, but this is definitely an improvement. I love the way everything’s organized within each post now. The way the screenshots “flip” into place is really awesome. I appreciate the fact that the actual text of posts separates into columns, instead of having stupidly wide lines of text that become difficult to read as a result. To that effect, though, the comments unfortunately do not separate into columns or otherwise control their own width, which makes them a bit annoying to read. So if you have any way of limiting the width of comments, that would help. Overall, though, this is hella awesome.
I don’t like it. The previous one was way better to read. This one look nice but it’s worst to read and loading way to long. I love the background, simple structure but one of the best nature could create. Colors are definitely DE:HR like with more contrast.
Well I hope you’ll get used to it cause I’m not changing back. Loading is a bit slower but even from my poor hotel wifi I manage to get it pretty fast, it’s not that bad… I think. Let me know it you have suggestions to improve reading experience, thx for the feedback.
Same. Old one was better, I loved previos version: colours, block placements and ect.
And we now have SSL.
