CanMag.Com Makes Updates to Site Layout
By Ryan Parsons |
If you are a frequent visitor to our site, CanMag.Com,
you may notice changes occurring as you surf through our pages [we have
yet to shut down our site for improvements]. These changes may look funny
at first as we test out different solutions to make the site more 'eye friendly'
and easier to navigate.
That truly is a beautiful thing.
No More Pop-Up
First, we understand that popups are annoying. However, The Can Magazine
popup was created to help viewers quickly visit a page that they have previously
viewed [not a popup advertisement]. Therefore eliminating the hassle of
having to re-index our pages in order to find your favorite. One of the
perks to this popup is that it only popped up once during your visit [on
arrival] and then would remain hidden until your next visit.
Even with our best attempts to make a popup that aided individuals instead
of feeding them popup advertising, we still received complaints on this
annoyance. And, because of the complaints, we have completely removed the
popup option from our system and replaced all the 'Last Visited Pages' options
on the right menu options above 'Sponsors'. Hopefully, this will make navigation
even easier than our old, and now gone, popup assistance.
What to do About the Side Scroller
The attached scroller on all our pages is there to help you quickly get
to options such as 'Search' and the 'Issue Index.' I thought this movable
scroller was a great idea and have received compliments on it. But, I have
also received a number of complaints as well. Now, I am currently deciding
whether or not to remove the scroller from the site as well, instead placing
the included options on the right-side bar along with the 'Sponsors' options.
Now we need to know what you, as our viewers, think of the right-side scroller
that follows you along the page. Should we keep it or remove it? Please
let us know by using the supplied email address below.
