Regular visitors to the Gizmodo homepage will see some changes today. We’ve changed some colors, moved some things around, and tweaked some layouts. If you’ve been visiting Gizmodo.com for more than two decades, as I have, you probably have questions. Here are the answers.
We made these changes in order to unearth more of our journalism, and make the homepage a little easier for you to use. We’re publishing a lot these days, and that meant many of our stories didn’t get time on our old homepage. They were hard to find unless you knew where to look. So the new design has more links to our latest news—chronologically and by section.
We also wanted to help fans of io9, Earther, and all of our sections find their content a little easier. We’ve added an area just a short scroll down the homepage where you can always find those verticals when you want them.
You’ll also notice a new section on the page where you can subscribe to our newsletters. Newsletters are cool!
Don’t like the homepage? Wish you could get all our stories in one long queue, from new to old, like the old blog days? You can always go to our latest page!
We’re not revolutionizing things here. This isn’t a reboot. It’s a tweak meant to make the site clearer and help you find our content. And it’s a work in progress. We’re going to continue to tweak it as the day goes on, and the week. So I’m eager to get your feedback. What do you like? What don’t you like? What works, what else could we do? Let me know in the comments.
