After spending a year using a website layout that I was not thrilled with, I’ve gone ahead and created a layout that I much prefer. One thing I really like is the slider at the top of the home page, which I will use to draw attention to “feature” articles. However, several people have complained that even on a fast Internet connection, the slider takes a while to load. I’ve tried some behind the scenes performance tweaks to try and speed things up. I’d appreciate feedback letting me know
- what you think of the new design;
- are you having any performance issues with the website; and
- what type of internet connection are you using?
Tomorrow will begin the next chapter in the life cycle of the “Ramblings of a Graduate Student” blog! I hope this site will be more interactive in 2011 than 2010. Stay tuned!
