    Under the hood improvment is anever ending job but a necessary one! Good luck!

    WPTavern had become a major media on the WP community over the years.
    Like I said on Twitter before, minimalism is great but the Tavern’s identity has vanished since the redesign. I like the content first priority but the wood grain background was the only distinguishing design feature I am able to remember.

    I am not saying you have to bring it back (kidding just bring it back pleeeeease) but it’s hard to identify WPTavern compared to another random media with clean minimalist theme design.

    Imho something is missing!

    Maybe integrate wood grain into a logo?

    “The biggest change that you will notice is a new header design. On mobile devices, it will look the same. However, on larger screens, the header expands to reveal a search form with a navigation menu below. ”

    Isn’t that a major problem? Mobile users shouldn’t lose functionality. Can’t the search box be added to the end of the menu?

    Hi,
    Please check the header on the small devices. iPhone SE here and the hamburger icon is not inline with the logo. It’s especially discomforting for sticky feature, because the header take up really much space of the viewport height.

    Thanks

    The most important element for recognition and distinction is still not back: The Logo!

    I’d like some wood grain myself. Just nostalgia.

      It’s more than nostalgia. Things like the wood grain and logo, although arguably dated, were part of the site personality and to strip them out makes no sense. It’s completely bereft of any kind of character now. There’s not even a nod towards the site history.

    Does the featured article has to be black`? It looks a bit like a death notice.

    My RSS feed of WPTavern is no longer working. Did anything change around https://wptavern.com/feed?

      It’s just the regular WordPress RSS feed and unrelated to the site’s theme. I don’t see any issues with it. I’m subscribed to the feed, and it has been coming through fine for me. It may have been a temporary issue.
