Many of you will have already noticed that we have reorganised the AmeriCymru homepage today. Why? Read on
We have decided that the front page should contain 3 'hot spots'. We believe that this will facilitate easier navigation AND show at a glance how members posts/photos etc are doing on the site.
1. Current This is of course the Activity Feed and we encourage members to use it for any purpose which does not directly contradict site rules. For more on this please see the following post:- Status Updates or - 'I Cut My Toenails Today'
2. Popular In this section we will rotate ( randomly ) the Top Content, Top Member , Top Discussion , Top Photo , Top Video and Top Blogpost displays. Check back frequently if you want to see all the rankings. This will allow us to display the most popular content items prominently on the front page and indeed, on every page, on the site. A content item becomes 'popular' for four reasons:- number of hits, number of comments and number of 'Likes' and 'Shares'. Since this display is in the right hand column content will be widely seen on the net since every page we promote will contain prominent links to it.
3. Featured In this section we will highlight content which we believe to be particularly important, interesting or amusing. Although this section has to be updated manually we will be happy to receive suggestions or recommendations for inclusion. Anything in the 'Featured' or 'Popular' displays is likely to be featured heavily on other social networks,Twitter, FB, G+ and all the usual suspects.
We believe this is an improvement on the previous rather haphazard arrangements. Over to you dear reader....any thoughts?
