September 2015 upgrade
The sharp-eyed amongst you will have already noticed that on 29 September 2015, the Designing Buildings Wiki website was upgraded. This is part of an ongoing process to make the site clearer, more intuitive and easier to use.
The main changes are:
- Adopting standard web colours, with black text on a white background and blue links. This makes the site easier to read, particularly on small screens or outdoors.
- You can now add comments at the end of articles. Just click the ‘add a comment’ button below any article to start a discussion.
- There is a new searchable image library in the site info / tools menu.
- We can now prevent terms from auto-linking to other articles. This can be used to prevent erroneous links from terms with more than one meaning, such as ‘occupation’, or words that are so common it is distracting if they appear as hyperlinks.
- There have been a whole load of simplifications, with all unnecessary text, icons and options removed to make the site less cluttered.
Let us know what you think or if you have ideas for other changes.
