The Front Page has a fresh new look

Read about all the changes here.

  • Greetings everyone,

    As you may have already noticed, the front page content grid was revamped with a new look today.

    The following is a list of changes made to the front page content grid:

    • Snaps of all sizes have been made more consistent. Splash images are now always on top, followed by the title, and finally the introduction (if there is sufficient room).
    • Favicons and tribes have been removed as they were creating unnecessary clutter.
    • The vote score is now more visible and always located on the top left of each content box.
    • Videos will now load in a pop-over window.
    • Snaps on mouse-over are now much more noticeable, due to the background transition from white to grey, and the text transition from black to white.

    We feel that these changes create a cleaner look and provide more consistent navigation. If you spot any visual glitches, be sure you do a hard refresh (CTRL+F5). If that doesn't work, you may need to clear your browser's cache.

    We hope you enjoy the new look as much as we do! If you have a comment, suggestion, or any other feedback reflecting these changes, please don't hesitate to post it in the comments area below. Thanks for your time and have a great day!

    Team Snapzu

    I never had a problem with the old one, but this one really does look more sleek.

      Old one was just fine. But I'm sure I'll get used to this one. I just naturally hate change :/

    First off, you guys and gals who design snapzu have always been simply amazing at slick visuals. I'm hard pressed to think of many other sites who do what y'all do as well as y'all do it. Even the inevitable glitch are few and far between. Your team always does a super excellent job.

    I have one suggestion about something I've always found somewhat confusing. To me, there seem to be too many "rankings" of stories on the front page. You rank the popularity of snaps by size, position, color, and vote count. The amusing part is that sometimes these different ranks seem to contradict each other. I suggest hiding the vote count until you hover. It's too conspicuous and distracts from the pictures which are the main draw of the front page. I also suggest changing the color bar for the snaps back to the original idea of having it indicate a topic area. It was cool to scroll through to see that all the yellows were tech related (or whatever the old color used to be). Having the color indicate the primary subject area provides more useful info than the current system of indicating popularity. Let the position/size handle showing us how popular something is.

    Other than having too many ways of ranking popularity (especially when they appear to contradict each other), I think the changes are great. Keep up the good work!

    The vote score can be hard to see in certain snaps, but other than that I like it a lot!

    I take it that new tribes will be a bit harder to discover now since they aren't shown on there. But I guess all you have to do is click in and they are listed right there on the right.

      Yep, plus if you're in the mood for discovery, use the list view which still has the tribes there.

    Unexpected change, but I do find that it really is a lot easier on my eyes due to the fact that all text is now the same styling and the images are always on top. Thanks.
