You’ll start noticing some changes to this site over the next few days and weeks, until we shift over to the OpenLab, all in the hopes of making the site a little more useful for you and hopefully a little clearer for those of you who’ve felt it was a bit ‘bloggy.’ And hopefully this site will also become a model for what you might do on your own.
The main change for now is a shift in the way the menu works (above), which will allow posts to appear on specified pages (so if you have a question/suggestion for group, for example, it will show up on the questions/suggestions page, or if you have something you thing we all should read, you’ll be able to have it show up under ‘readings).
For you, the only difference when posting will be that you’ll want to be sure choose a category when posting to the site. If you want a post to show up under ‘Readings,’ be sure to click that category, and the post will show up on that page (it’ll also show up on the front page, below this post which, for now, won’t move).
You can find ‘categories’ at the end of the big red arrow:
We’re going to be expanding your own ability to customize the site to your own needs, but until then, please feel free to make suggestions by posting to the ‘questions/suggestions/discussion’ page or by emailing Scott directly. That goes for anything you’d like to see on the site, including categories you’d like us to add (for now you can add categories, but they will not show up on the menu unless you let me know. In future you should be able to add them yourself).
Also, be sure to subscribe to the site via email (on the right bar of the home page), so you get a notification when anyone posts anything, and you won’t miss out!
