We weren’t planning on fully redesigning our site but as we were searching for ways to optimize our template, one thing lead to another and two weekends latter, voila; the all-new Carscoop 3.0. Designed in-house (literally….) this is a brand new template that’s based on an XML and not HTML platform as the two previous facelifts.
Upon designing the new Carscoop, we set two basic goals: function and aesthetics. If we were to pick out the most prominent changes from each category we’d choose the new header with the Carscoop logo that was inspired from car badges (hence the glossy, chrome look) and the “previous” and “next” page function. The latter allowed us to reduce the number of posts on the first page since all you have to do to see our previous articles is to simply press the “next page” button.
We’re still working on some minor cosmetic details along with adding more goodies on the side bars, but for time being, we would really like to hear what you have to say about our redesign and most importantly, let us know any suggestions you may have to better improve Carscoop.
