Today, we’re running the Capcom-Unity Blog on a new platform; and to start, we’re focusing on three main aspects: speed, familiarity and ease of navigation. The speed aspect is mostly thanks to back-end optimizations that you’ll hopefully never have to worry about. 😉
Now, let’s talk about the other two:
FAMILIAR LOOK AND FEEL, ANYWHERE
The first thing you’ll notice is the front page experience is largely the same. We wanted to start off with a familiar look that you already know. The key difference this time is the mobile version, which has been better optimized for mobile browsers while still properly matching the experience on desktop.
On the front page, you’ll still see a reel of our latest highlighted blog posts, and scrolling down will start the blog feed. We also have a handy RSS button if you want to set it up for your RSS readers!
Once you start drilling into each blog post, you’ll see a couple of new buttons, specifically near the bottom. Here’s what they do:
- Brand Tags: depending on the blog, you’ll see Brand Tags that, when clicked, take you to a feed of blog posts only related to that brand.
- topic-tags: these are tags for various topics.
They’ll help you filter content by specific games, gaming platforms and even
broader topics like “event” or “contest.”
NOTE: we’re still optimizing and growing our tag library, so please be patient if you see any posts with missing tags.
- Previous Post / Next Post: another new addition to the new blog; these buttons will take you to blog posts that happened chronologically right before (or right after) the one you’re reading, matching what you’d see in the main blog reel (front page).
These changes were all designed and implemented to help you get to the content that you’re most interested in, while giving you more options to just browse the site if want to lose yourself in an afternoon of reading.
Our goal is to continue improving the Capcom-Unity blogging experience, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on how things are working and where can improve even further. In the meantime, we hope you have a faster and easier time with the site, and stay tuned for more tweaks and updates in the future.
Huge thanks for our Web Team (Tom James!) and to you, for your continued patience and support!
See you soon!
