Changes to Black In History
Looking at making a semi-significant update to the UI/UX of the post page design for Black In History.
After looking at my “add this” analytics, I realized that people aren’t really utilizing the share this function as much as the space the UI button demands. Frankly, more people use the tweet, like function or just copy and paste the url (luckily add this allows for tracking url sharing). Also, another thing, I wanted a way to integrate note counts without futzing with the overall layout and breaking what people like about the visual design.
So, I’m reclaiming that speech bubble space and will be integrating a note count with tumblr action options instead. I’ll still have a share this button, but it will be minimized to a ‘+’ icon next to the native reblog & like buttons. Expect to see an update in the next few days while I test stuff out.
I’m still messing with the color, but the dark brown seemed too dark with the new content inside of the bubble.
