Realignment of Dubbeldissarklubben

It is with great pleasure I announce another realignment of Dubbeldissarklubben. Since it is a site for Swedish movie reviews, I had a few goals in mind while doing this redesign.

  • RSS feeds
    Now really. Who can live without feeds these days? This site doesn’t have any ads or similar, who may suffer from RSS usage.
  • Comments
    I have received a lot of feedback on the reviews during the six years the site has been online, and it’s only fair that commenters can bash on the reviews directly instead of using the feedback form.
  • Improved search function
    What started out as a few reviews has grown to a rather large archive with 160 reviews and still growing. We all love Google, but with the new search function you can search in a better way, and even do a cool regexp search if you’re bored on a Sunday afternoon. For instance, try searching for “usel” or “skräp”.
  • Widescreen edition
    Since the reviews are the main thing on every page, the text area is now wider.
  • Categories
    For easy access to your favorite blend of movies.

Not forgetting the accessibility evergreens, always in focus during web development: intuitive navigation, clear typeface, high contrast and so on. There are still some things to do before it is finished, but as we all know, living sites are always in progress, in one way or another. Unfortunately the fan page about Josh Hartnett has been reported missing in action, but I’m sure life will go on without it.
