WikiJob Site Styling

Facebook
#1

What do you guys think of the current ‘style’ of WikiJob? We’re thinking about making it a little bit more web 2.0, rather like facebook or twitter, and less like wikipedia. What’s everyone’s thoughts on this?

Chris.

No it is meant to be factual - I like it as it is

the new facebook is appalling…

Hi Chris (and ed),
I think the fundamental style is fine. But it could probably do with some tweaking. The info wiki-pages occasionally have some formatting issues.
I would prefer the title of the pages to be a different style to that in the text… currently the title is the same size and font (+bold) as the heading1 (??) style in the wiki text.

I would personally get rid of the option to comment on the wiki-pages, and just have a link directing people to the relevant forum. As to me it devalues the page a bit, having an unanswered question lying there as invariably very few people see it.

cheers, Ucayman.
P.S. Is there a way to get an email notification when someone sends me a private message?

That’s good to know. We’ll take that onboard. Guess the styling stays!

I’ll look into the private message thing- it used to work under the old version of software we were running- I need to check if we can get it in the new version- will let you know! :slight_smile:

If it aint broken then don’t fix it :D. I think the structure of the site is fine, and I haven’t had any problems with receiveing emails

Ok that’s good to know :slight_smile: Less work for us!

Actually, is there anything you would like to see? Or anything that really annoys you, or you think is holding the site back?

#9

why does trader1984 keep posting posts with just a . in them?

I tried editing some wiki pages but got confused and even after saving the pages didn’t show up :s a guide maybe?

nothing major springs to mind but I will let u know if I think of anything or come across any problems. The only extremely minor thing I can say is that the area which displays whether or not you have a private message is located all the way near the bottom of the left panel. Now this isn’t a drastic problem but it just means that sometimes I forget to scroll down and check this area and so I may not notice a private message until a little while after I receive it. Perhaps it would be better if this was moved more to the top of the page so it is immediately visible. Again this is only a very minor issue for me personally.

sorry for the dots, just trying to keep the posts alive. I’ll stop it :smiley:

Chris,
I have figured out how to get the email alerts for PMs working again.
When you go to the private messages page there are 3 tabs at the top right, when i click the right-hand one ‘Email Notify’. then click the ‘yes’ option/radio button (which was already selected), then save. and I magically now receive alerts of PMs.
Mysterious…
Ucayman.

We did a site upgrade (just some software that in the background) a few months and loads of things broke- some things are just so subtle though that you never notice until someone points it out! Thanks for the feedback though, it’s a lifesaver!

Love the styling. It’s a bit like Craigs list, simple and easy - no need to be cluttered or designed for me. Like the new video too but have you seen other sites like guardian jobs, careertv or careerplayer? i think they’re quite a bit better than the people you’ve currently got and surely wiki deserves the very best! i doubt they’d even charge as it would be great for them to partner with the number 1 grad site!!!

Thanks for the praise :slight_smile: We’ll look into it- career player is a very nice guy so maybe we can strike something up!
