As you may have already realized F1Wolf received a facelift. I have been thinking about change of the design for quite some time. The previous design was from summer of 2007. It was great at the time of its launch and several tweaks here and there managed to extend its life span to almost 2 years. Unfortunately it was becoming more and more difficult to ad new features to the site. I was also getting a bit tired of the look of the site. And so as the F1 holidays arrived I decided to go ahead with the redesign.
The new F1Wolf uses the ColorMatic Theme from Theme Wars. The reason why I chose this theme was simple – it is simple, clean and easy to navigate. I stayed with same colours as the previous theme – combination of red and grey. The dominant colour however is white.
The first obvious difference is the new Featured Post section at the top of the page. This section gives an easy access to last five posts that I find interesting enough to fall into the featured category.
The home page includes the latest 10 posts organized in 2 columns. I believe this layout makes the page much easier to navigate than the old one.
On the side bar you can subscribe to F1Wolf contents delivery by email, see the latest on the Prediction Game, follow my Twitter updates featuring my latest tweets (click here to follow me on Twitter), check the latest F1 championship standings or the season calendar. Further down on side bar you find my latest F1 photos on Flickr and the F1Wolf archives. The latest comments have been moved to the footer section of the site.
The menu bar at the header of the site provides quick links to some of the F1Wolf pages – Season Statistics (featuring standings, engine and gearbox statistics, team mates head-to-head qualifying statistics and more), Prediction Game, Contact, or Photos.
