New Blog Design Is Live!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 30, 2012

Does the blog look a bit different to you this morning? I sure hope so! The design went live very late last night…it was quite the event. Eric had all sorts of problems with hundreds of images not transferring over, but they should be visible now.

Sketchie was working until 3am on issues!

If you don’t see the new design, try refreshing the page to see if that brings it up. Holding down control + F5 should work.

I want to take a moment today to give you a mini “tour” and show you some of the fun features.

1. New Menu System

As I mentioned, we re-categorized blog posts and added many new categories for easier searching! You’ll see a new menu system below the header now. I’m STILL in the process of categorizing, but the majority of it is done. Categorizing over 2,300 posts is about as mind-numbing as it sounds…luckily, I had the Olympics streaming on my computer this weekend to entertain me!

The main menu you see every time you visit the home page is shown below (highlighted in yellow):

redesign1

 

Each of these main menu categories have sub categories. Some of the subcategories have their own subcategories via a drop down menu. We’re talking three levels of category goodness here!

For example, when you click “Recipes” a horizontal menu will open up below it, as I’ve haphazardly tried to emphasize with a squiggly yellow line.

recipe

Most of the subcategories have their own drop-down menu. So for example, if you hover over breakfast, a menu will drop down and show you further breakfast categories like smoothies, Green Monsters, vegan Overnight oats, Parfaits, Hot Oatmeal, Granola, savoury, etc.

As you can see below, you can now search for recipes by dish type as well as by allergy (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, oil-free, etc).

allergies

Also note, my Recipage is now found under the Recipes category in the “Recipe Index”.

When you click on a specific category, a page will come up that looks like this below and the posts will be listed in that category. Here I clicked on “Popular” –> Hovered over Reviews –> and clicked on “Restaurant Reviews”.

thumbnailexcerpt

You can search by image view or excerpt view and you can sort by date or title (highlighted in yellow).

2. New Header

I’ve always used one of my photos for the header, but this time I wanted to try something completely new – all crafted in Photoshop. Photoshop is basically my nemesis, so this was quite a challenge for me. After banging my head on the desk several times, I’m pleased with how it turned out. I know it doesn’t overly scream “food blog”, but I like that it looks fresh and feminine. Our original plan was to hire a logo designer and then incorporate that into a new header, but we haven’t been able to find someone to do a logo yet.

3. Galleries

I made wedding and honeymoon albums (something I’ve had on my list for a couple years now). If you click on my wedding page (found under My Story –> About Angela –> Wedding), you’ll now find 4 wedding galleries (pre-ceremony, ceremony, post-ceremony, reception). I also did the same thing for our honeymoon pictures. There are now 9 separate galleries for the cities that we visited on our Mediterranean cruise. If you want to check out all of the various galleries that I’ve posted to date, you can find them on the “Galleries” page under the photography category.

4. Amazon Cart

I finally got around to creating an Amazon cart highlighting my favourite cookbooks, photography equipment, kitchen tools, and food products. You will see the Amazon widget on the sidebar of some pages (not the homepage) and the direct link can be found at the footer of the blog called “My favourite things”. Please note that I will receive a small commission on sales from the Amazon shopping cart.

5. Popular Recipes

On the right sidebar of the blog, you’ll now see a “popular recipes” section. It will randomly select 9 popular recipes. If you hover over the picture the recipe name will appear. Thanks to Eric for this fun feature!

You can also find my popular recipes under the “Popular” category in the main menu, then click –> “Recipes”.

popular

Also on the sidebar, you will see my social media buttons with a new look. You can find my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram pages linked here, and you can also subscribe by RSS and email.

socialmedia

[If you are curious as to how to design your own social media buttons, we used this tutorial. It was not easy…unless you are a whiz with Photoshop!]

6. RSS Feed – Social Media Links

rss

You can now find links at the bottom of my RSS feed to 1) Comment, 2) Share on Facebook, 3) Tweet, 4) Pin, and 5) Stumble. If you have any problems with these links please let me know.

Well, I think that’s all for now! If you encounter any problems or have any questions, leave a comment below. We checked the blog on the following browsers: IE 7/8/9, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome, as well as the ipad. Everything appears normal on this end, but it’s possible we missed something!

A BIG thanks to Eric for all the love he put into this project!!

janet @ the taste space July 30, 2012 at 9:21 am

Hey Angela,

Not sure if I am the only one with problems (I am using Firefox 14.0.1, btw), but there’s this pale toolbar on the left (with social media links) that is really annoying since it covers the text. Also your text doesn’t resize when I resize my browser, which really sucks. I just checked with Chrome and it seems to be better sized so the columns space out, but no text-wrapping, when I resize the page. Also that pale toolbar is not there.

Hopefully this makes sense to you and you can get it fixed for the FF-users!

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 30, 2012 at 9:57 am

Hey Janet, Thanks for letting us know – going to look into it!

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 30, 2012 at 9:59 am

Also curious – is that Firefox a beta version?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 30, 2012 at 10:20 am

Hey again,

Just checked it out, that is actually the browser that we tested it on. I’m not seeing any text overlap or problems with resizing. If you could send a screenshot to Eric; [email protected], that would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Angela,

The new layout looks wonderful! Fresh, clean, and so organized!

I saw that you haven’t found anyone to do a logo for you. My boyfriend Marc is a pretty darn awesome graphic designer so if you’re still in the market you can send me an email! He doesn’t have a website anymore, but if you are interested I can email you some links to his work. :)

Nancy July 30, 2012 at 9:46 am

Excellent job on the new site! It is great. I don’t know if you are aware that the sponsored link(Safeway get out and grill) on the right takes you to a site advertising hamburgers and steaks…It doesn’t particularly disturb me (I can just not click on it again), but for a vegan blog, it seems like less than optimal target marketing…

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 30, 2012 at 10:54 am

Hey Nancy, Im in the process of switching to a new advertiser where I’ll have full control over my ads. I’ve complained MANY times about it and agree with you that I don’t want to see those up there. I also dont see the ads here in Canada so it was happening without my knowledge. :( It will be worked out soon.

I’m not necessarily good at Photoshop and blog work but for some reason, I find it thoroughly enjoyable. Anyways, it certainly is a change for your blog!. I can imagine how mind numbing it had to be to categorize everything but it really makes it easy on your readers, so thank you! The only things I don’t like (just constructive criticism, it is YOUR blog after all): I prefer your old header style. Your food photography is really great and the idea was more unique. And this is seriously picking, but I think all the border lines are annoying, maybe they could be a lighter shade of grey? Great job you two.. and Sketchie! <3

Love the new design and organization! I just discovered a bunch of new recipes using the “popular” section to plan out meals this week!

I was wondering if you have any posts on freezer friendly recipes or would consider adding it as a category? I’m new to being vegan and having trouble finding a variety of recipes I can freeze (other than soups, chilis and vegge burgers) for planning meals in advance.

Can’t wait for your book!

Great suggestion Sarah. I don’t freeze many meals, but perhaps that is something I need to start figuring out and adding into the categories.

Love the new look and feel of the blog, Angela! Makes navigation so much easier.

Btw, I’m moving to Oakville tomorrow and would love to be included in your running group and/or restaurant meetups, if they aren’t too full already! :)

Your new blog design is so pretty! I really appreciate all the hard work you and your hubby did — especially to the re-org of the recipes. I refer back to your recipes all the time for inspiration and the new layout will make it even easier to do so.

Love the new design! It’s visually appealing (crisp, clean layout with just enough color) and the menus and everything are great. It’s clear how much hard work you both put into this!

Wow. Amazing! You guys put in so much work on this. I can’t even comprehend. The new site is so organized and very professional. I do miss the cherries, though! Not that your new header isn’t beautiful, just something about those cherries and the blue writing made me so happy!

Great job!

The redesign looks great!!! I just wanted to throw it out there that you might want to look at Alison Leipzig Graphic Design if you’re looking for a logo or brand design. She specifically works with women who are working in fields like nutrition and wellness. She has done some AMAZING work, her name keeps popping up on blogs I read with thanks for doing their logos and branding! You can check her out at www.alisonleipzig.com if you want!

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 31, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Thank you for the suggestion! I will certainly check her out. :)

You don’t need a logo designed, you did a great job on your header!

Ahhh, I can’t believe I’m just looking at this now!! We just moved and we still don’t have internet (so I’m at Starbucks currently, or steal it from my mom’s haha). But, I LOVE the new blog look. You and Eric have far outdone yourself. I wish my hubby was techy! haha!! Can’t wait to navigate around the new site and visit it more once we have internet in a few days!!!

Love the new look! Only thing is I think I actually prefer the cherry header- but this one is good also :)

I love your blog/pages and L.O.V.E your recipes (in fact I use them everyday), but im dissappointed in the new header. Your last one using cherries was divine and gave it a real, natural, earthy, unprocessed feel which to me is what your work is all about. Please bring your photo headers back!

The new layout looks fantastic! I love the organization of it all. X3 Tell Eric he did an awesome job. I don’t know how to do any…data reconfiguring or whatever, so I’m blown away. XD

Angela,

I’m sure that you have either decided you no longer need one or have already found somebody but in case you are still looking for somebody to design a logo for you, please let me know. I would let to help move along the Vegan cause!

Thank you so much! I’m meeting with a designer on Monday but if that doesn’t work out I will totally give you a shout!
