The site is undergoing a few visible and performance based changes. The changes listed below are in relation to the main (index) page.
Hiccups: We didn't cater for international events although they were Guyanese related and we have a large Guyanese userbase.
Remedy: The flyer previews have been removed. Also the international events are marked with their respective country flags.
Hiccups: The news listings weren't uniformed and lacked professionalism in the display.
Remedy: The previews were removed also with the fonts were reduced to accommodate long headlines without disrupting the layout.
Fault: Only one group was displayed and the image was somewhat big.
Remedy: Four groups are displayed instead with the images reduced but yet clearly visible.
Hiccups: There wasn't one. Couldn't see the last 'x' comments. You had to browse thru the entire site to see what was different. Silly on the part of the coder.
Remedy: Its implemented.
Hiccups: Same as groups.
Remedy: Images reduced and five artistes are displayed.
Hiccups: Wasn't one.
Remedy: Is one.
Hiccups: Only three were displayed and it was bulky.
Remedy: Image dimensions reduced and six videos are displayed.
Hiccups: Wasn't one.
Remedy: Is one and coded to be unobtrusive and user-friendly.
Mailing List Block
Hiccups: Was one. Then there wasn't one.
Remedy: Its now back taking record of your email to send you specific updates.
Footer (all pages)
The other major change is the footer. It now displays over thirty links to different parts of the site. Some of the links dynamic to keep things fresh for you.
There was one, now easier accessible in the footer.
More to come later.
Come to an end! No, I'm not referring about GuyanaLive.com. This is in relation to GT&T SMS being sent freely from online. I saw this one coming when they reduced their rates to $1 per text message and denied a few sites. GuyanaLive was among the last of the Guyanese sites to have the free SMS working and they were accused by "GTLIES" and "HINNY-EFFECTS" of sabotage in a recent meeting.
On the bright side; we have $1 messages! Our overseas folk just can't message us.
Stay tuned to more of my updates.
