A Bit Of Spit And Polish



You may notice a bit of a difference in how Broadsheet looks today. I’ve finally stopped scratching myself and have updated to the latest and greatest version of WordPress and also have gone for slightly newer look.

It’s not so different from the previous look so you shouldn’t be frightened off by it.

There are two big improvement for our readers. The first is that the images will now only load when needed (which should result in a faster page load for you). Secondly, the theme we are using is properly responsive so should look much better on what ever mobile device you’re using.

You’ll also see at the bottom of a post some similar posts listed out in case you’d like to read more of our waffle.

For those that are interested, the version of WordPress we use with the associated plugins is available on GitHub. There’s nothing really out of the ordinary in the code but it’s there if you want to have a poke.

If you come across any issues, let me know in the comments.

Update: Hey folks, we’re aware there’s an issue with the apps at the moment displaying images and hopefully I’ll have it resolved in the morning.

Update 2: The apps should be working again.

Update 3: If you are really, really annoyed with the lazy loading of images you can turn it of for the browser you are using by visiting this page: https://www.broadsheet.ie/nocache.php.

Update 4: I’ve tweaked the lazy loader so it should only be noticable if you scroll really quickly though the front page. It basically will load the next screen worth of images as you move through the site.
