Some changes in store: A glimpse into the future

Large_bitterandblue
I posted a couple of weeks or so ago about the forthcoming changes to the blog and I can no provide a further glimpse of what lies in store. I can't give you an update on exactly when the changes will be in effect from, suffice to say that it will be soon.

What will the changes bring to Bitter and Blue?

  • Make the site load faster and run better meaning you can get to the content you want faster.
  • Make sure that you're seeing the best and brightest content up front with our flexible layout, modern design and reduction of clutter.
  • Make the experience on our sites run seamlessly from every platform, whether mobile, tablet or computer. No matter where you are, the experience will not change.
  • Will not take away or change any of the community elements you love like FanPosts and FanShots and GameThreads.

After the jump is the first peek at how the new site will look....

Ok, here are a few screenshots from some of the other SB Nation blogs to give you an idea of how the new layout will look:

The new 'magazine style' front cover will ensure you can access the biggest stories quicker.

The new story stream feature helps you see a major story develop over time and access all the background information at the click of a button.

How it will look on a tablet.

Or are you out and about on your mobile? Then don't worry all the same great new features will be accessible while you are on the move too.

We are all pretty excited here as to what the changes will bring to the site, and in particular, you the readers. Whilst we don't have definite date for the 'launch' it is going to be soon and it will definitely be worth the wait.
