This post is boring and has nothing to do with clothes
*This post is all admin, but at least you got to look at a pretty picture*
I’ve done a little bit of cleaning up to the site which should make it a bit easier to navigate and hopefully make it attractive to new readers visiting the wonderful world of HYA for the first time.
The archives are no longer listed on the sidebar as they were becoming too long, and can now be found on their own dedicated archives page. This page actually has more info on it, like the amount of posts in each category and amount of posts per month, so I think moving the archives to their own page should make things a lot easier for those of you wanting to delve into HYAs past.
Each post now has ‘related posts’ listed underneath them. I wonder if the posts related to this article are also boring admin stuff?
You may have noticed that the ancient “Should I write about coats” poll has gone. This doesn’t mean I’m never going to run another poll again, it just means that I don’t see much need in leaving up the previous poll for almost a year when you guys can’t even vote on it.
I’ve installed a plugin that allows me to gather data on which articles are the most popular (fun!), so I can see what you like and what you don’t like. The top 10 articles (based upon the plugins algorithm) can be found on the bottom of the sidebar. That placement might change in the near future because I don’t like the way it looks. Predictably, the most popular articles are my list based posts, like the tee blog lists, and the robot tees list.
You can now subscribe to comments by e-mail. I noticed that on a lot of other blogs there was an option for people to check a box when they left a comment which meant they would be sent an e-mail if anyone else left a comment on that blog post, and I thought that was a great idea since I’m always forgetting to check back to pages I’ve left comments on, so hopefully you’ll find this option useful in keeping conversations going in comment threads.
If there’s anything that you like or don’t like about the changes, or if there’s some kind of functionality that you think this site desperately needs, please get in touch or leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
