Changes and Updates

car_photo_369484_25

Wanting to start the new year off right, I have made a few changes to the site that I wanted to let all y’all know about.

To begin with, you will notice that we are much more mobile friendly now. Not just mobile, but also tablets. And this support includes the ability to stream the show directly from the site (not tested in mobile Firefox, but the default Android and iOS browsers work).

To be more consistent with the ‘File sites (MotoringFile, BimmerFile and ScooterFile), White Roof Radio now uses the Disqus commenting system. Easier for you to keep track of those comments and conversations you are in with a single login for all 4 sites. Speaking of the ‘File sites, you will find the latest posts from each of them at the bottom of every page, in case you needed to get caught up (coming soon to mobile!).

There will be minor tweaks to follow to fix any bugs that crop up. If you find any issues, please sound off in the comments below!

    Nice! Love the new mobile layout, very tidy.

    One little thing I noticed is that the shadow on article title links tend to plug a bit on mobile. May I humbly recommend adjusting it to this? text-shadow: 0px 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);

    Also, that photo is just scary.

      Now I’m seeing that the shadows are rubbish mobile. Thanks for the tip a_dg

    Do you have a feel for the number of folks who stream the show via the web interface? I’m guessing the majority use a webcast subscription service (iTunes, Downcast, etc.) or stream via a provider like Stitcher (this example having MINI Connected integration). I know I only come to the website if I feel called to comment… ;-)

      I don’t. I wish I did. Based on traffic to the site, I know that the bulk of you listen in the ways you mention. But, we do still get people visiting the site, and I want to make sure that if they are here, no matter how they are here, they can listen to the shows!

      Thanks Gary!
