The new look is here!
by on Wednesday, May 21, 2014  (4 comments)

I already covered many of the benefits of the new look of HillRunner.com when announcing it would be happening today. I won't rehash that. You can read it there.

Right now, I just want to say it's here as you've already noticed I'm sure. If you have any comments on it, positive or negative, don't hesitate to share. I'm sure it will take some time to get used to the new look but I think we'll find it to be more streamlined, easier to read and convenient to navigate to key areas as we get used to it.

I did my best to make sure the whole site is converted. However, it's not impossible that you may find something I missed. If you do, you can always let me know. However, I also have built in a process to email me any time the old infrastructure is used so rest assured that I'll know if anyone finds a page that was missed and address it as soon as possible.

I'm also working my way through a few small bugs. Nothing should make the site unusable and I suspect I'll have everything fixed up later this morning. If you see anything that doesn't look right, though, don't hesitate to give me a shout if you want to make sure I don't miss it.

I just wanted to draw attention to one other thing that I'm changing at the same time. Formerly, every page had a very basic copyright notice ( "All contents of this site ©1999-2014 HillRunner.com" ). I'm changing this notice to something that reads more complex but explicitly explains what I welcome and encourage. In short, if you want to use the work on HillRunner.com, go ahead but properly attribute myself (or the author if it's a blog or forum post by someone else) and give a link back to HillRunner.com as the source of the content. So borrow and build upon what's going on here! That's a great thing! Just make sure you are giving credit where credit is due.

I hope you like the new HillRunner.com!

Note: Tangentially related to this, I was also doing some cleanup and I messed up. The calculators are currently not available but I'm working with the web host to get a restore done. They should be available later today. I'll update here when I hear more.

The calculators are back and have their own subdomain: calculators.hillrunner.com.

Continuing change! Bolder, brighter colors are back in. So we have a bit of a back to the future look with a twist going on. If you don't see the new color scheme, refresh your browser's cache. On Windows, you can hold the "Ctrl" button while pressing F5.
