NOOSA – I’m guessing that PNG Attitude’s first design change in six years will bring with it a ‘shock of the new’ feeling for many readers, but it also has some really tangible advantages.
Perhaps the most important of these is that the design change manifests itself as a particular improvement for the hugely increased number of readers (and especially the 6,200 followers on Twitter) who since 2013 have begun to access the blog on their mobile phones.
Previously, the mobile blog screen appearance was a miniature version of the larger scale PC presentation, and pretty difficult to read and to add comments to. Now it’s in a much more friendly format.
A useful search function has been added to the blog, which gives the option of sorting by best match (which is the default) or most recent post.
And the banner has been changed to provide a new image that seems to better reflect the “& Friends” statement on the masthead.
The photo was taken on the Highlands Highway at the Daulo Pass in March 2017. (I'm holding a South Pacific lager and, although you can't see him, Francis Nii is sitting in the LandRover behind the crowd.)
Of course, the Friends are our many contributors and commenters – far too numerous to count now the blog is in its fourteenth year; Friends who, if I am the engine room, are the real motive force of PNG Attitude.
So I hope you’ll soon be used to the new design – and, if you encounter any glitches, please report them by emailing me here.
In case you've forgotten, or weren't around, immediately below is the PNG Attitude from 10 years ago in September 2009.
