Yep, Trail Mix has a new look. Hope you like it. Plus we’ve now finished weeks of upgrades behind the front porch aimed at speeding up the most user-friendly news commenting blog on the web. And mobile users should enjoy our new platform for them.
Here are some of the improvements:
- New theme powered by Citizen Journal, called Diginews.
- A wider screen format with larger and more readable fonts for desktops.
- We’re now “Super-Cached,” speeding up pages with a more dynamic delivery system.
- More commenting tools, such as Quote This and Reply links on every comment to allow more interaction with other users (thanks to veteran Trail Mixer Jamie for suggesting this one}.
- A brand new mobile platform delivered by WP Touch Pro, making the Trail more accessible to hundreds of devices.
- Higher resolution format for images and videos displayed on posts and in comments.
- Not to worry, your favorite comment tools are still here. Unlimited editing, photo uploading, video embedding, html tags, text preview, etc. — No site anywhere gives users so much power over their comments.
- And among many changes you won’t notice is a dramatically enhanced security system to protect against spam and hackers without punishing innocent users.
Of course one thing hasn’t changed, not since we launched this little corner of the “Internets” in 2005 — the best gang of lively, informed, articulate and intelligent commenters anywhere. Happy Trails!
