Metroblogging Vancouver 3.0

Welcome to the new design for Metroblogging Vancouver.  It’s been in the works for awhile, and now finally it’s ready to go.

 

There might be some weirdness over the next few days, since this isn’t only a redesign but a platform change (from Moveable Type to WordPress).  I’m not in on the nuts and bolts of such moves, but some things might get broken, but in a few days that should be sorted out. There’s going to be a few new options which we’ll be rolling out over time, one of which is an ability to conduct polls within the platform which is going to make the Metroblogging Vancouver Tournament of Blogs run much smoother than the way I had been planning.

    No comments on the new design?

    Could it be because registration is required, and a hassle?

    And it is really true that EVERY old URL to the site is now broken? Holy crap!

    That URL, like every other, now just goes to a search page!

    Yeah, we sort of knew that all the old links to the site would get broken. Basically there was no way to fix that pre-launch, so we just launched and hopefully that’s all going to be fixed. The move from Moveabletype to WordPress did that.

    As for the logging in to comment it might take a few more seconds the first time you do I, but then you can rate posts and do a whole lot of other things.
