mobilitydigestlogosquareHopefully you all have noticed Mobility Digest’s new look! We needed a freshen up but did not want to get to heavy with our theme selection and finally decided on this one. I definitely hope you all like it as much as I do. We have done our best to keep the ads to a minimum, just enough to pay the bills, and make sure there is no annoying text link for our readers to trip over. In all fairness, I tested them not too long ago and Simmons (Mobility Digest Writers Union Leader) organized a revolt and they were taken down. One of the cool things about this theme was the opportunity to add more related content links around the page. We now have over 5,555 article in our database and we hate to see them get buried. So we have some avenues now to bring them back from the abyss and provide our readers with even more related material they may want to read. I also need to thank Kristofer Brozio for the massive work he put into the upgrade. Of course, Doug Simmons does a lot to fix problems and keep things fresh. He is also the keeper of our sidebar polls plugin which is always amusing. Lastly, Patrick Kortendick who has been a long time contributor.

Now, did you happen to notice we are all over the social media thang too?  Check out our RSS, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and now Google+! Please like us or follow us on these social media outlets to our content.

Lastly, who out there is creative? We need a new logo to go with our new look. Got any ideas? Send them to us!

As always, thank you for reading Mobility Digest. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make our website a better place for everyone to enjoy.

  1. I couldn’t vote, when I click vote button, it seems like kind of locked. Also when I click “View Results” nothing shows up. I tried in both Google Chrome 15.0.874.*.*.*.* and Firefox 8.0

  2. Hmmm, there is something indeed wrong. What device are you using? I cannot vote on Safari, but the poll archive does in fact work. However, the archive is not pulling all our content for some strange reason. May have to have the plugin mastah Simmons have a look. If not, I can look for a better plugin.

    I tried it in Chrome 15.0.874.106 m and it worked. IE and FF are borked up for me too. I will check into it more.

  3. Also one more suggestion, it would be better if the website remembers user details, so that we don’t have to enter name and mail id every time. I know I’m too needy and demanding.

  4. hi doug! see, i’m here :)

    and yeah i can’t vote. buttons pop up but then nothing else happens.

    murali – you’re right…way too demanding. :D

  5. Okay, the polls plugin doesn’t work. Thanks everyone! LOL Anything else? Hi Nikhil, you need to “Jazz” up your (gr)avatar now.

    I emailed the theme author about updating this with threaded comments too by the way. Hopefully soon. I tried Discus on a test site and was on the fence with it. Anyone like/want to use Discus?

    Want to hear back from our creative readers about a logo suggestion too.

  6. Yeah, remembering us would be nice. And I see a lot of ‘old regulars’ are coming up as visitors?

    Slightly off topic: Simmons, did you get my reply to your email? Answer was “Yes; use this email addy.”

  7. @Murali: I will check that too. It worked on the test site. Grrrrrr

    @MartiM: I always remember you Marti. I’ll email Simmons for you and see if he is back from sabbatical yet. :P

  8. Hhmmm … may be related, may not be: I tried to thumb-up Murali’s last comment, and it didn’t work. I know I’ve been able to do so before.

  9. Nice work! I like the new look. Thank God you didn’t use text advertising I hate those sites.

  10. okay i made a gravatar…lets see if it shows up

    edit…nope – what am i doing wrong? i made an account at gravatar, uploaded a pic, its logged in…wahts next?

  11. Thanks nikhil, I am on a mission to get all our regular readers with gravatars. Lol Now to work on Marti. :)

  12. Yeah! I just started using gravatar for Battlefield 3. I was excited to see it implemented here. Now you guys get to see my pixelated color filtered mug. Enjoy! I did it all on the iphone.

  13. Lol Should I ask what’s a gravatar? Ehh, I should not be lazy and go google it… Makes me think of a video game for some reason. Aaaannnnd got one. It’s a placeholder. I really don’t like using my RL image online… But I’ll consider it. Virtual cookies if you know where it’s from. :)

    No opinion on Discus. Never used it.
