I’m very pleased to introduce you to the latest version of F1 Fanatic’s design*.
Outwardly the basic layout of the site is similar to before, however the version you are looking at today is based on entirely new code to what you saw yesterday.
While many of the visual differences are subtle, under the hood a vast amount of outdated and inefficient code has been stripped away and new foundations laid on which I hope to build new and exciting elements of the site in the future.
Among the few major changes which are already in place are improved functionality for smaller screen sizes including a new drop-down menu through which the site can be navigated and improved handling of elements such as graphs which previously did not display well on smaller screen sizes.
Within in this drop-down menu – and on the sidebar for wider screen sizes – a new navigation area gives quick access to what’s new, what’s popular, and a range of different sections of the site.
In the galleries, larger image sizes of up to 1920px wide are now available. In the comments, you can notify fellow users more easily as typing the ‘@’ symbol followed by characters leads an auto-complete menu to appear.
The site has been tested on different devices, browsers, operating systems and screen sizes. However there may still be some problems which haven’t been identified yet.
If you believe you’ve found a fault with the site, please use this link to send me all the useful information you can so it can be acted on as quickly as possible:
And please share any other feedback – positive or negative, as long as its constructive – in the comments below.
*As the last layout was version eight this is version nine. Not version ten. That would be silly.
