New Lick of Paint

I’m super excited to welcome you to a new look DigitalOutbox. We’d grown a little tired of the old theme that has served us well since the middle of 2009 so it was time for an update. It was also time to drop that FriendFeed link – damn you Facebook!

So late last year we started throwing around some options and came up with this brand new look which is a slightly modified version of the Ares WordPress theme. As our work and real life often limits our time there may be a few unfinished parts of the website but over the next few days we’ll even them out. Who said you can’t polish a turd? If you do spot something that doesn’t work feel free to mail or leave a comment on this post, especially if you’ve any good ideas for a new logo!

All our content is still available but we’ve made a few tweaks that should make the site easier to use. Firstly the shownotes are no longer a separate file but integrated into each podcast post so our content is now fully searchable, indexed and connected with other posts. As before we offer mp3’s and mp4’s of each podcast and as we update each of the old podcasts you’ll see a shownote listing and also the start time for each of the topics on the show. Hopefully that will make it easier to find and listen to an older show. Finally the site is more graphical while being slightly snappier than before. Hopefully.

The website update is the first of many planned for DigitalOutbox over the coming year. We hope to post more content on the site including occasional reviews and product comparisons and the podcast itself is being tweaked too. More regular and focussed (shorter!) is the first change you’ll notice. Other changes include…well, you’ll just have to wait and see.
