Tamebay maintenance and upgrade tweaks
It’s been three months since we launched the new site design for Tamebay, although it feels like a lot longer – I can hardly remember what the old site looked like now.
We’re still working on a few ideas and tweaks to the site some of which will be visible and others which hopefully will enhance your use of Tamebay but that you may not even notice…. Although when I say “We’re still working”, what I actually mean is that our fantastic dev team at We Are JH are doing all the actual work!
Most talked about on Tamebay
Today one of the new features has gone live. In the right hand side bar of the home page you’ll find a new design for the “Most Talked About” stories on Tamebay. It will display the articles that have had the most comments over the past 30 days and the intention is to make it easy for you to find topics which you may still want to comment on, but aren’t necessarily still featured with an image on the home page.
Next to the title of the article you’ll also find the number of comments that the story attracted in brackets.
Following comments on Tamebay
Another feature we put live since the site launch is the ability to receive an email when someone replies to your comments on Tamebay. Beneath the comments box is a check box which if you tick will notify you of follow-up comments via the email address you enter when commenting.
Things we find interesting
We’ve added a completely new section at the bottom of the right hand side bar of the home page. This is where we’ll share things we read on the net that we find interesting, but aren’t necessarily things that we’ll blog about.
Dan and I read a wide range of articles on all sorts of topics so sometimes you might find something loosely related to Ecommerce, at other times it could be something totally off the wall that one or other of us just find interesting.
We’ve put a few minor fixes in place in recently, such as some of the Archives Page links weren’t working correctly (they are now).
Please do let us know if you see something not quite working as it should do and we’ll do our best to get it fixed. Also if you have any great ideas for other tweaks we could add to Tamebay we’re always interested to hear. Even if your ideas are not technically feasible or within our current development budget we may be able to consider them for next year.
