If youâ€™re a regular reader of The Leipzig Glocal, the new face youâ€™ll see tomorrow when you wake up and go for your morning (or afternoon?) dose of glocalness may look very nice but very different from what youâ€™re used to. We hope we have injected it in all the right places to enhance your viewing and browsing experience, but are still in the process of tweaking the new design and organization, and making it fully responsive to and ideal for different types of devices â€“ computer, tablet, mobile. So weâ€™d appreciate your feedback!
Some of the individual articles that have already been posted will also look a bit different, i.e. in terms of photos, to conform to the new layout. Weâ€™re in the process of redesigning the articles in the archives when needed â€“ there are more than 500 of them, so it will take some time. Weâ€™ve kept all our columns and features, and you can still find all the articles you might want to search for, as theyâ€™re just organized differently on the new homepage. Weâ€™ll now have umbrella menu headings, or themes, encompassing different columns, or categories (which we used to denote with the # symbol or put across the top as fixed pages). Take a look:
UnderÂ â€śMy Leipzigâ€ťÂ up top, youâ€™ll find, as the title suggests, many of our local pages: Jobs for International People, English-Speaking Doctors (under â€śCommunity), info and insights regarding different aspects of the Leipzig scene and city life.
â€śWhatâ€™s Onâ€ťÂ will give you Leipzig Events, plus Openings and Premieres and FUNkyFRIdayz mixes.
You will be able to find our weekly showtimes for movies in the original (â€śOmUâ€ť), plus the Free Museum Days listing, under the next tab,Â â€śCulture / Entertainment;â€ťÂ it will also house all the other arts- and entertainment-related columns, including literature, music and performance and movie reviews.
Travel, Dating, Food, etc. will be underÂ â€śLifestyle,â€ťÂ whileÂ â€śOpinionâ€ťÂ will be the domain of Politics and related topics. There will be some overlap, meaning youâ€™ll see some articles under more than one category.
Itâ€™s similar on mobile, of course; just click onÂ â€śMenuâ€ťÂ and go from there.
Iâ€™ll leave the rest for you to click around and explore â€“ in fact, theÂ LeipGlo teamÂ is doing the same, learning as we go along, and knowing thereâ€™s always room to make it better.
