How to use this site and access it’s content

The frustrating thing with magazine/blog sites can be finding their content.

This is how the site should appear and how to use.

Above is how it is designed to look on computer or tablet and on a Phone to the right.

The best viewing experience for a photographic site is on a large screen but I realise less people will access that way in future so have tried to improve the mobile experience.

The site is now reactive so it will adjust the resolution to any size phone, phablet, tablet.


Smartphones.

On a small screen you get the mobile version. The 3 bars bring up the menu. You can scroll and touch any tile to see it’s description and touch again to read.

There are limits with what can be done but the tiled responsive format is big improvement to a traditional blog with small text menus.

If using a small screen and turn the phone from portrait to landscape, ie turn your phone 90 degrees, the page being reactive will upscale automatically the images.

Computers.

For PC uses you can select a menu item then move your mouse pointer over the tile to reveal the name of the article.

If you do not like the tile pages you can look at traditional lists of articles in the sub menu of that name.

Words that appear in pale red colour (like last sentence) are a link to something usually in the site or to an explanation on wikipedia or a reference to explain a joke.   

General.

To stay up to date with new posts you can add the site feed to your RSS reader – but I suspect few people still use this. Otherwise click like on the Facebook page or add the Google+ page to your circle to receive updates.

(Articles I post to the BlogX2 section will not appear on social media pages)

You can view my Instagram feed from the gadget on the home page or from smartphone #motorcycle.paradise 

There are buttons on the home page to Tumblr, Pinterest and 500px, but I only occasionally visit and post to these sites.

To message me then use the gadget found in the Contact menu or you can send a message via the Facebook page (you may wish to read the about page prior if trying to get me to advertise something ok).


Possible issues.

If using Firefox or Microsoft Edge there may be odd time the fonts display incorrectly in olde english style. Try clearing your browsers cache.

In the sub menu pages occasionally not all articles will load but if you scroll/roll mouse wheel then more appear.

For touch screen tablets all the side menus will cascade open, this is by design.

This color scheme is commonly used but some people may find it hard to read. Try to calibrate your monitor, many panels are wildly inaccurate with their colour, gamma and contrast.

In very old posts some photo links are broken. This happened when Google moved from Picasa to Google Photo albums. I have fixed and remastered the photos in articles still being read but the rest that nobody is reading so I have left with thumbnail only.  


If you notice any other issues then I’d appreciate a message. 


Regards,

Warren.
