We recently launched a streamlined layout for the frontpage so that it would load faster for readers!
The feedback was great, so we made it the default. We told the Bees that we hoped to see an increase in views and comments, but after going over the data… we realized that traffic to the blog has actually gone down. So we made the painful decision to revert the default back to the expanded frontpage.
But if you prefer the streamlined layout, never fear! We’re leaving it as an option so you can continue to view Weddingbee in the streamlined version.
Just mouse over the word “expanded” at the top of the page, click “switch to Streamlined”, and Weddingbee will show up in its streamlined version when you visit.
I love how fast the streamline view loads on my iPhone, but I also love the big pictures on the expanded view. I find myself more likely to click into a post though, when I’ve had a chance to sample a bit more from the frontpage.
Which do you prefer — expanded or streamlined?
