Website 22.1 Revision

I’ve just launched a minor revision to the site, which brings the version to 22.1. This update brings a number of minor tweaks and improvements to Website 22, which first launched just over a month ago.

A few things you might notice:

  • There is now a ‘settings’ link in the menu (or at the bottom of the page in the mobile site). If you click it, a little settings window comes up that allows you to adjust the article font size and decide whether you want the pinned main menu or not. It saves a ‘cookie’ in your browser with your settings so it’ll remember them between visits. You can also reset to the defaults from the settings menu.
  • There’s now a list of all Off on a Tangent recognized holidays on the Policies & Rules page. For now it doesn’t actually list the dates . . . maybe in 22.2 ;-).
  • There’s a much nicer, Off on a Tangent themed down-time page (which you might have seen while I was preparing this release). This will also serve as a sort of ’emergency backup’ site if I ever need it.
  • There have been a number of small bug-fixes and improvements. These updates include: better contrast (a slightly darker border) for light gray areas, improved scripts to reduce potential future code conflicts, no more spurious 404 errors on empty search results, better animations when expanding the comment fields, support for on-page photo captions, and more!
