This page keeps track of all changes and revisions made to Ancient World Magazine, both large and small. The changelog does not generally include content updates except when these are important from the point of view of the website’s development.
Quite a few changes today. The first podcast went live (yay!), so I needed to add it to the menu. Also decided to add a FAQ, split the page with legal mumbo-jumbo into separate pages about copyright and privacy, and implemented a few other changes. As a result, had to redo how the system handles menus (no via fields in the backend rather than directly from the template). I think the navigation works better this way.
Modified the homepage to make it easier to see what’s new. Before, the “mosaic” with articles was arranged in a 1-3-3-1-3-3 pattern in desktop view, meaning one large image followed by two rows of three smaller images each, and then again one large image followed by two rows of three smaller ones.
This, in retrospect, made little sense. Articles (and podcasts!) are now listed in a 1-2-3-3 pattern, with one large image, followed by two medium images, followed by two rows of three smaller ones, so that it works more like a funnel, leading the visitor from the latest post to later items.
Added country filter to Museums page so it's now easier to use.
Since we published the first article today that had a subtitle, I made changes to support titles and subtitles. Also added various minor fixes to the site’s cascading style sheets, mostly to ensure that fonts are displayed slightly smaller on mobile devices.
Added newsletter and changed website sidebar.
Changed the name of the category Look to View based on helpful advice.
Updated the logo and cover/header images on social media accounts.
Changed byline in small views to remove author name.
After months of hard work, the Ancient World Magazine website finally went live today. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to get in touch.
