It's been a hellishly busy month, what with the end of year return and the R&D tax credit claim. In the meantime, we'll also been making some adjustments to the way site works right now.
The two changes you'll notice immediately are on the listings and news pages.
A better listings grid
We had a number of users who were unhappy with the width of the TV listings grid being reduced by having ads to the right of it. So we've decided to pull the ads and give the space over to the listings.
We've also taken out some of the detail that was in each box. We've just kept the title of the programme so that it's much clearer to see immediately what's on, without a whole bunch of additional detail.
The key goal was to make the grid more readable. I think, with these initiatives, we've managed it.
This is quite a basic function but we've now deployed 'tagging' in our stories, which allows us to have a sub-menu on the news page with the most popular tags, as well as a box with related stories.
This is all part of our recent drive to make the user experience better.
