Lifehacker has undergone a major facelift. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll have noticed that our entire site looks different. Very different. Here’s what you need to know.
It’s been a long time coming, but Lifehacker Australia has finally received a major redesign. Over the past few months our dev team has been beavering away behind the scenes working on a completely new look for our website. We think you’re going to like it.
In this makeover, we aimed to make the site cleaner and simpler, highlighting larger images. The text fonts have been rejigged and our logo has been given a bit of a refresh. Yes, there is a lot of white space and the main column is wider; this means we can show bigger images and more texts within articles.
Those visiting Lifehacker Australia on a smartphone should get a better mobile experience too.
The change is visual only at this point, and there will be a couple of features that won’t be activated straight away. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll notice that comment notifications and the ability to adjust your user profile are currently missing. These features will be reinstated very soon.
In the days to come, you might also notice a few minor bugs. (This is a complete overhaul — a few bumps along the way are all but inevitable.) If you’re reading an article and something doesn’t look right, please leave a comment below and we’ll add it to our to-do list.
We realise this is a big change cosmetically, and big changes take some getting used to. With that said, I’m sure you’ll agree the site was in sore need of an update. Again, please let us know about any bugs you spot in the comments section below and we’ll endeavor to fix them asap.
