Updates & Improvements

Hello, back again! As I said I’ve been doing lots of little behind-the-scenes, cleanup type things today. But I’ve also made one big formatting change that I think will be really beneficial. As the coming chapters will see the 50th artist join the site(!), the artists page – previously just a list of names – had become a little unwieldily. To help differentiate all the different links, then, I went in today and added an icon for each artist. In addition to making it a lot easier to find the person you’re looking for, I think it’s really cool to see the difference in styles when the pieces are placed side-by-side:

  1. Hi Josie,

    great work! I quite like the icons. Congratulations on the number of contributing artists.

    One suggestion: Often when I look at a chapter I want to check something in the previous one. There is usually a “next chapter” link, what do you think about installing a “previous chapter” link on each page as well?

  2. Thanks for the suggestion, Kim, it totally makes sense. I’ve added a ‘previous chapter’ link to the bottom of the PA pages:
    http://hpcompanion.com/pa/pa1
    http://hpcompanion.com/pa/pa2

    Is that enough for what you had in mind? I tried adding both the ‘previous’ and ‘next’ buttons to the top of the page too, but it made things look really cluttered.

  3. At the bottom is great. Thank you for granting my request!
