Well, we only changed the theme for OnlySP a few months ago, but as the site continues to grow so must we. The previous theme worked well for a bit, but as time went on I wanted to create a more distinct look for OnlySP and make sure we had a theme that reflected the professional outlook of the team working here. So, after the slider broke on the previous theme we were using yesterday I pretty much said, [email protected]## it and went looking for a new theme that would do everything we need.
So, here you have it, here’s the new OnlySP theme and this is the one that will be sticking around for a good long while. There’s a ton of new features that we can use for this theme so I’ll just list off a few of the new changes below.
– New article formats for all of our features
– Better review format, the score chart is much cleaner and more fluid
– Reviews also have a reader score now as well
– Feature videos – we can now have videos set to our feature image for reviews instead of having it in the middle of the article
– New gallery plugin – Full HD images, better loading, cleaner look
– Quicker loading times
– Forums have been completely rebuilt from scratch (wip)
– Staff page (wip)
– Optimized menus and navigation with extra features
– Mobile site much cleaner
– Plus plenty more little fixes and updates
We’re excited for the continuing growth of OnlySP as we continue to blast forward this month. Depending on this week we might hit 300,000 visits for the month, which is 140,000 more visits than we had in the previous month which is absolutely nuts. Things are really looking up for OnlySP and I think our new theme really reflects that. I did try to make sure I kept the layout of the site very similar to what it has always been like as I think our layout Is easily one of the easiest to navigate across any gaming websites.
There’s little bugs and fixes were still kinking out, but please feel free to leave feedback in the comments or praise if you feel like it. Our Pre-E3 coverage begins this week, so be sure to keep checking back for guides on what will be at E3 this year among other exciting features we have planned. We’re looking forward to what the rest of the year brings for OnlySP and we’re glad to have you all along with us.
