This is a quick post giving you an overview of the recent site and post changes, to go along with the bigger website updates that were happening (more info in this recent post). More of an announcement really, but a useful one I think!
So starting straight off, I’ll go over the changes done to the site and its pages.
Firstly, the pages and homepage got some last finishing touches.
But those are tiny tweaks, for a new page was added! The Gallery page is finally here… I will do the proper Server page too at some point…
EDIT: Some (crossed-out) parts of this post are outdated! More info here: premiumminecraft.com/blog/downsizing-smaller-site
There were, and will also be a few last tiny design tweaks, which will probably involve me trying to grasp lines of code..! Hopefully I won’t mess anything up – not for long anyway! Well, I’ll deal with it, while you just read..! Lastly, the Terms page was updated too… For what I hope is the last time, until further notice! Please take a quick while to read the rules there.
Moving on to some facts about posts!
The posts here had, and will have, some general, visual changes. As you might have seen lately, the posts have lengthened slightly, although I don’t feel this is a bad thing. They’re not too long (well, except an upcoming 3000-word long one..! You’ll see why when it comes out), and give even more useful content than they used to. So hopefully longer but better!
Another thing is if you’ve been reading any of the recent posts, or even skimming the titles, you might have noticed something else. I stopped doing posts about Minecraft builds and projects
– here’s why: there’s now the Gallery page…
EDIT: Those posts should return soon – sorry to any builders 😉
I also finally realised that tags are a thing a few weeks ago… So navigation was hopefully made easier! You might, for example, have a post in the Builds category, and tagged with Modern and Skyscraper. Sticky posts made an appearance too. I will pin any important posts and announcements from now on. They will stay at the top of the Blog page for around a few weeks using dark magic, and will have (📌) in the name to make it less confusing..! I pinned this post, for example – at least for some time after publishing!
EDIT: WordPress has released the new Gutenberg text editor! Writing posts is made easier with it’s drag-and-drop blocks; And more, with its new image and visual options! But the thing is, I didn’t mention it here since it was a behind-the-scenes kind of change… And the editor didn’t fully work for me. But I’ve found a way to fix it, so the reason for this edit is to tell you I might give it a try soon! What does that mean? Possibly better and more visually appealing posts, made using the new editor’s options! But we’ll see. I’ll say in a post if I used it because it might look similar, or the post might have a whole new look..! I’ll be experimenting soon – seems promising… ish!
And that’s basically it for the changes. Just look at the sparkly fresh site and posts!
If I was annoying, I could probably think of a few more tiny changes… But those would go under the previously mentioned “tiny design tweaks” etc. So thanks for reading, and please tell me any thoughts (or more criticism..!) below, about the updates or the post itself. Even more various posts coming weekly! I’ll keep my promise about the posts returning to normal, don’t worry! Some of what’s coming up: a post about diamonds, stuff about Minecrafty events and builds, and a story about a wave..!
