Update on New Format

First, thank you all for your support and positive comments! It's heartening to see this much support for a change that is as comprehensive as this one has been.

I've also noticed a jump in traffic on the site; and it doesn't seem to be fixated on one post: it's across the boards! I don't know if this is just a coincidence or not, but I can see a definite jump right after I went online with this version.

I just wanted to update you on some of the tweaks I've made since we debuted this new format on Sunday:
  • Restored full posts instead of a summary followed by link
  • Moved the email comment form so it's not partially hidden
  • repaired the comment forms for each post.
  • Restored the search bar at the top of the page.
  • Added "recent posts" widget and changed the archive format.
  • Added the FEEDJIT widget to the bottom of the page.
This last item is really cool: you can see where in the world people are reading this blog, you can see how they got here, and you can see what links they follow out. It doesn't list IP addresses or anything like that, but you can see where people are coming from, what they're reading, and where they're going.

I'm glad you enjoy using the Theatre Scene as much as I enjoy putting it together. Keep those comments coming!
