TSURURADIO Version 3.0?

Hey there!  Noticed something a little different on the front page today?  Yeah, we’ve gone to thumbnails & excerpts!  Crazy, right?  Now, I know  what some of you are asking….. “Why?”

Great question.  Let me explain.  As you may have noticed, we’ve added some wonderful new contributers from our amazing community to give their own takes on the wide world of music, but something was bothering me.  I’m doing 1 to 2 posts a day now-a-days (man, and to think we used to just shoot for every other day back in the olden days) and with the load times getting longer with the more posts on the front page, well…. I had to keep it to about 5 posts on the front page meaning that a day or so after, for example, Ari’s awesome Coachella recap it was *POOF* already on the 2nd page (which might as well be oblivion in today’s ADD/now now now now world).

That made me sad.

So, I set up a dummy site where I’ve been playing with plug-ins.  I mean, I’m on wordpress now, might as well take advantage of it, right?  And came across a sweet thumbnailin’ excerptin’ plug-in.  After a quick meeting with myself at 5:30am this morning, I installed it and BLAMO!  Here we are!

I hope you don’t mind.  I hope you understand and appreciate the ability to just scroll through the past 2 weeks or so of post, quickly (it even loads quicker without having to load the mp3 player and all the other images), and go read what you like!

If not… well, sorry.  We are a community and I’m going to do everything I can to make embrace, celebrate, and rejoice the wonderful people I’m lucky enough to have in that community.

Thanks for reading, thank you for visiting, thank you, thank you!

    Don’t fret young Tsuru – tis more than fine. I like it (probably because I operate a blog with a similar style).

    Definitely makes it easier to scan through posts – some may balk at actually having to click another link to see a mp3 link…horror!!! ;-)

    Can’t wait for V4!

    Thanks S!

    The more I think about it, the more I think we are on version 5 or 6! lol. Now… if only I can figure out a good player to get the RADIO back to TSURURADIO on the front page.

    I’ll try and search for a good plugin as well, Tsuru… but no guarantees!

    Found a few, but I’ll have to wait til I get back to the home computer before I try anything out!
