Help needed: Apply within
My apologies. This week, instead of putting up a post, I am asking all of you for a little help; especially from anyone who uses a mobile device to read this website.
We have become aware, that on many mobile phones, this website looks….
Well, it either doesn’t display anything at all or it looks really rubbish!
NOT GOOD, NOT GOOD AT ALL!
So, after some quick and desperate measures we have found and installed some software that detects when you are viewing the site from a mobile device.
If you are using a computer then you should see the site displayed just as it has always been.
But, if you are using a mobile device, the new software displays only the body of the post without the header, side bars and most of the graphics. In theory this gives you a site that is much easier to read and provides a far better user experience, in terms of readability, download speed and mobile provider fees.
And user experience is where you come in
If you are viewing this on a mobile, please give us your thoughts by filling in the poll below. It should only take a few seconds, and the results will be of huge use to making the site function correctly. We have tested the new software on all the mobiles we have available, but there are so many and to test it on all of them is beyond our capabilities.
You can select more than one option; i.e. Suposing that you prefer the new system but are still having graphics problems.
To be honest, it was a hard decision to pare down the site to this bare minimum but in this case the logical-mind prevailed and a pared-down site is better than a rubbish site in the end.
By the way, this is not the final solution. We are sure that there are improvements that can be made to the mobile display, maybe with some new software, maybe with a mirror “M” site. So keep watching and just see what we get up to.
Okay, a final plea. Please do take a few seconds to fill in the poll, we will be very grateful for any help you can give, and if you would care to share some thoughts in the comments area, then those would also be very much appreciated.
A huge thanks to everyone for taking an interest in Shack’s Comings and Goings, and in Journaling for Creativity. We look forward to hearing from you!
