We've been working hard on this new site design for MTB Hawaii. Always looking for new ways to make it easier to navigate, more enjoyable to read and easier on the eyes. This time around, we spent quite a bit of time making sure it loads fast and works well on mobile devices. We like it and hope you do as well! Below we'll briefly discuss some of the features on the new site.
It was important to us that all of the content be organized well. On top of that is must be enjoyable to read. The layout for the Trail Directory, individual trails and blog entries are now much more pleasing to the eye. Everything is spaced out better and structured in a way that makes sense.
Our Trail Directory is the most visited section of the website. It is essential that the directory not only be easy to read but highly accessible from every page on the website. To achieve this we built a Table of Contents for the trail directory.
To access the table of contents we've create a Quick View button which is conveniently located in the top right corner of your browser window. Clicking it will slide open the Quick View screen. This screen shows a condensed list of all our trails, including difficulty and trail type. Clicking a link will take you to that individual trails page.
Great images are important to any website but a mountain bike website needs to pay particular attention to displaying great images. Seriously, our trails are beautiful and our bikes are beautiful! This time around we have the ability to add photos anywhere into the content we want.
And my favorite is we now have the ability to display big, beautiful, full screen images about trails, for reviews or any other type of content!
The Trail Directory now has a beautiful new Photo Gallery that not only displays wide screen images but lets you view images fullscreen. And it works fantastic on your mobile device.
Which brings us to our last feature, mobile compatibility. The new site has been built with your mobile phone in mind. Every page is designed to conform to your device, including the photo gallery and images, content and even the Trail Directory Quick View.
And that sums up all the new features available on the new site. We hope you enjoy them!
