Hype News: We’re Making Some Changes

Hey, so by now you probably noticed that things look a bit different…  Allow me to explain!  For the last month or so the site has been loading incredibly slow.  After doing some digging into the issue it was discovered that it was our custom site theme not playing well with our updated blog software.  This means we had to change our theme but finding one proved difficult.  Although I’ll take the blame for that since I just couldn’t find something that I felt worked well.  Though, I am glad to say that after many tests and trials I have found something I can live with…for now.  I’d be lying if I said I was 100% satisfied but I wasn’t 100% satisfied with the original layout at first either.  It took some small tweaks over months and years to get it how I wanted it and that is likely what will happen here.

The big take away of the new look though is that it is still clean and most of all fast.  The site should load in a much more timely matter and though it might take some getting used to, the new navigation should work out nicely.  Going forward we are going to experiment with our branding a bit and we even have a new logo in the works but we aren’t ready to show it yet so that’s something else to look forward to.

There are a few things I should probably warn you about now though.  This site has been up for 8 years and over that time we’ve done some 3,000 plus posts and all those posts were designed to fit the old theme.  So for those of you who like to poke through the archives may notice that older posts may not have thumbnail images or have the same image posted twice (in more recent posts).  Its just a side-effect of the new theme.  We will try to go back and clean some of that up but we naturally can’t go back and fix all of those posts so just be prepared for that!

OK well that pretty much covers our little PSA there.  We hope you like the new theme and stay tuned for more changes in the not too distant future.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to leave them in the comments section below or tweet them to us at @MororworldHype.  Thank you for being a loyal reader!
