From now on, this site will clearly focus on music released before 2010. It’s still possible to visit the 10s pages. But because the music there is less ‘relatable’ and almost nobody visited those pages, I’m not putting them at the forefront anymore. It will also give this site a clear subject: music nostalgia.
I’ve also changed the slider, to make it look less like a slider.
The new site structure is ready. By reducing the number of pages in the top menu and changing the structure (the result: no more drop-down menus anymore than strictly necessary), it has become easier for mobile surfers to navigate through the site. The number of mobile users is constantly increasing and I have to go with the flow. And besides being very tiny (sometimes), many mobile screens don’t support drop-down menus very well.
Individual year lists aren’t available anymore btw. They have been replaced by decade lists.
By clicking the links in the top menu, you’ll find this site’s biggest recommendations (‘level 1’). By clicking ‘level 2’ or ‘level 3’ after that, you’ll find the other recommendated tracks of the decade you’ve chosen.
At the moment, the site is in the ‘transition phase’: removing the old pages and replacing them by new ones.
The result is a – temporarily – strange and empty looking site. It will be fixed; don’t worry.
No updates? Yes, but wait for a while. ‘Behind the scenes’ I’m changing the structure of the site; because of the changed way people are consuming websites –> often with tablets and smartphones, having screens which are technically different from the regular pc/laptop screen. Often, these aren’t able to handle drop-down menus very well. For example, my own tablet (from a ‘regular’ brand) always hides the drop-down menu after 1 second.
So, within a week you’ll see decade lists instead of year lists. This requires less pages, and because of that less drop-down menus.
