If you’ve stopped by CheeseWeb in the past few weeks, you’ve probably noticed some big changes. We’ve been talking about our site re-design on our Facebook page, but today we’re ready to officially unveil the brand new CheeseWeb.eu! Today, I’d like to highlight a few of the new features we’re especially pleased with.
First of all, you can see our lovely new logo, designed by the uber-talented Shea, at On a Budget Design. We wanted something bold and clean and she gave us exactly what we wanted!
In fact, our main goals, in re-designing CheeseWeb, were a clean design, and better organisation, making it easier for you to find the information you’re looking for. We reached out to our friends at MWL Development to advise us and implement the changes we were looking for and we think they did a fantastic job.
If you take a peek at our front page, you’ll see way less clutter. We’ve stream-lined our categories so you can find exactly what you are looking for.
The newest posts are still found in the slideshow at the top of the page. There are now two ways to view the older posts, on the home page. The default view shows a photo accompanied by a description of the post. If you click on the button that looks like a tic-tac-toe board, you can toggle to a photo only view.
Below you can see the photo only view. If you hover your cursor over any of the photos, you can see the title of the post.
One of our favourite new features is the map of posts. (You’ll find it in the navigation bar beside the categories.) This little feature puts all of our destination specific posts on a google map.
If you click on any of the pins, on the map, you can see a preview of the post.
Want to know what we’ve written about in your neighbourhood? Zoom in and check it out. Wherever possible, we’ve used the exact address of the location. If you see a pin with a plus sign (+) in it, there are multiple posts for that location.
Just like in regular Google maps, you can also view the satellite image.
We’re really excited about these new feature and we hope you enjoy them too. Most of all, we hope this makes your experience on CheeseWeb.eu even better.
We’d love to hear your feed-back on the new site in the comments below or drop us an email. What do you love? What do you hate? Help us to continue to make CheeseWeb the best it can be and please help us spread the word!
