TBP Mobile Edition Now Live (Beta Version)

Ask, and Ye Shall Receive:

The single biggest request I get about the site has been for an improved mobile version of TBP. Previously, I was using a simple Word Press plugin for mobile, and it was pretty weak.

It took some time and work, but the new and vastly improved version of the Mobile site is now live — and its pretty fantastic. Mad props to the team at Onswipe, they did an awesome job.

This version went live over the weekend — we are still in beta testing, so expect bugs and glitches to keep popping up in this version. (If you find any, please use the comments to tell me, and I will forward to the developers).

If you go to Ritholtz.com on any mobile device, you should see it (but some devices and settings don’t). If you want to see what it looks like, point any mobile browser to:

http://t.ritholtz.com/bigpicture/

I’ll post the graphics after the jump.

Its mostly self explanatory, but let me mention a few hidden items:

• Both phones & tablets work similarly — they each have portrait and landscape orientations, but on phones the swipe is up and down in portrait mode.

• On tablets, the menu is laid out across the top; on phones, the pull down menu is top right;

• To find the button for the desktop version, grab the slide, swipe it to the right, and there is that button;

• Bug Alert: Once you go desktop, I don’t know how to revert back to the mobile version. The workaround is to use the mobile address.

I’m pretty jazzed at the way it came out– looking forward to your comments . . .

Update: Redesign, Adverts

Over the past few months, I mentioned a few times that I was overdue to replace this aging  four year old layout. I wanted something faster, cleaner, and more modern. I really like the way the new design is coming together. The main body part is a neat solution to the issue of the old…Read More

Blog Redesign Update

I mentioned last month that I was getting ready to do a major update to the site. I’m now working through the second iteration of the design concept. So far, we’ve gotten rid of the Tabs and most of the clutter. The color scheme and design language are still being worked through. Some of the…Read More

The Ridiculous Comment

Lately, there’s been an uptick in a specific type of foolishness, and I wanted to address it: The ridiculous comment. You don’t see too many of them around these parts, because I simply don’t allow them. I really don’t care what your views are about global warming or the CRA or what really happened on 9/11. If you…Read More

Its hard to imagine, but its been nearly 4 years since the present design of this blog was created and the switch over to WordPress occurred (October 2008). I am getting itchy for a new look (its time to move past this Web 1.0 tab based layout). I have a few ideas with this redesign:…Read More

Yeah! Site is Back Up

Seems that the site was spotty most of the afternoon — a snippet of code from Halogen Networks was hanging everything up. The updating of Tabs content seems to be fixed now as well. (Right hand column seems to be taking forever to load though). I need a better web structure that is more stable…Read More

Parts of TBP Site Not Updating

Hey all, Some of you have noticed that the site is not updating the Weekend, ThinkTank, Video or Bookshelf tabs automatically. You can go directly to any post if you have the link (i.e, from Twitter), but not via the four Tabs uptop. This is a glitch caused by a crash 2 weeks ago —…Read More
