Hey all, since the purchase and move I’ve been working at beating the crap out of bugs that have been unaddressed over the past five years. I could use your help.
Please let me know if you see anything funky with the site such as if you’re seeing the mobile theme on a desktop, or can’t see the mobile theme on mobile, or something strange pops up.
For reference, the mobile theme looks like this:
And the standard theme looks like this
And a quick update on things:
Ads: Using Google adsense, have set the ads to automatic and pulled the slider down to where I expect it will pay for the site in five years.
Disqus ads in comments and after posts – I’m attempting to minimize as they’re about 50% garbage. Disqus, however, feels that a free account is worth spamming the hell out of people these days. I’m trying changing some settings as it appears since we signed up for a Reveal account I may have some control.
As this is the first time in the history of Pocketables I’m in control of the ads, seriously, let me know what you think.
Tracking codes – There were sixty craptons of tracking code laid in here since the site switched to WordPress and was bought out by Crowdgather (or vice versa,) I believe I’ve got everything removed except the CG analytic account.
Transparency report – figured this might be fun to do, or depressing, one or the other. Coming soon, maybe. Hoping to get some stats I can trust before I put finger to keys.
Social media – I think we have control of everything except the old YouTube channel and the Google+ account. Not particularly a concern. Facebook is currently controlled by Paul (and the WordPress FB promo thing,) and Twitter is most of the editors.
The look of the site – I’ve stripped out most of the exceedingly old stuff, will start building up again soon.
Content – working on it
Question – would you rather see advertisements on the site or support the site with some monetary donation?
