neowin Site update, NeverEnding main page news scroll

32 posts in this topic

Posted

We have just updated the site to now include NeverEnding story scroll. This mean pages have disappeared and instead you can keep scrolling for the recent news.

When you reach the bottom of the page, more stories are loaded.

After five scrolls, it pauses (so the footer links can be clicked) scrolling again activates it again.

Code cleanup

We've also done some backend cleanup, and removed old code that was no longer used, so it's also a bit more streamlined.

Social buttons

We also updated the social buttons across the (main) site:

Facebook Likes now allow commenting to Facebook :)

We removed the social links text that appeared under the articles and added this instead:

In the next update, search will be overhauled..

When searching we'll add:

  • Only search titles? Yes/No
  • Search within results
  • Search tags only
  • Date range search

We don't want to make it overly complicated, but we feel the above options while searching are an absolute must!

These updates also apply to NeoGamr and as per usual, you may want to force refresh your browser on Neowin or NeoGamr to see the changes (CTRL+F5).

This works really nicely on the front page.

Ah right. I think it is because they are more prominent now, and I didn't notice them before.

Good work though!

Just a small thing I just noticed (and no, I haven't just been to the toilet). After scrolling down a bit, and clicking to read an older article, when going back in the browser, you start at the top of the page again.

Any way to go back to the place you got to in the scroll?

Update: Timan has moved the Like This button under the post, it makes much more sense to have it there, and might get used more..

You might have to do a force refresh (ctrl+f5) to see the updated posts.

The like button now looks like it's out of place, as if it's just floating over there on its own. Odd change, IMO.

To be honest when I noticed the move I was very confused. I think it made more sense where it was (top right corner of every post like a "close" button). But I'll give it some use and see how things go.

I agree. It looks a little out of place down there. It seemed a better fit in the top right. Then again it might seem odd because i'm used to the old placement.

And I was thinking that this was a bug with the layout.

At least the button is now a lot more visible, I agree that it is a bit out of place

I like it over the post on the right side more. Even of the left side to the right of the "Posted DATE, TIME" looks a little better. I guess it will grow on me.

Just curious: Why does it make "much more sense" to have it where it is now?

I think it wouldn't look so out of place or random if there were other buttons next to it. Why not move the Report and Top buttons over there next to it?
