We're in the process of redesigning TOP's look'n'feel. The primary goal is to make it mobile-friendly, responsive to being viewed on tablets and phones. A secondary update will be improved sharing—the usual connections to social media, with an email-this-post function.
TOP v.2 has served us well, considering I slapped it together in crisis mode in June 2007 in a fluster and a rush. But it's pretty dated now. Most important is this little site, Google's Mobile-Friendly Test. If you don't pass, Google downgrades you in searches. This has hurt us substantially since they switched over last Summer and it needs to be fixed.
Nothing substantial will change much. It will still be a "vertical photography magazine" in blog format with daily postings. Unfortunately I think the illustrations will have to stay the same, small JPEGs that open slightly larger when you click on them. We'll be losing our tan background color and going to white. The look of the site will be simpler and plainer. We'll have an actual logo, although it will be simple and no-nonsense and rather unhip.
Social media connections will be Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and—? Any preferences? The links to Amazon and B&H will be little boxes at the end of each post. There will be a "Like" button to help give me an idea of the popularity of specific posts.
No word yet on when. We're working on it, check's in the mail, ask your mother.
Any comments? What would you like to see in TOP v.3?
