Quick OGGOA technology update

ONLY GATORS Get Out Alive has been open for less than a week. In this time, I have received a few questions and inquiries into the site and wanted to provide the readers with a quick technology update regarding some of the things going on here.

iPhone / Mobile siteOGGOA is utilizing a special technology to make the site compatible with the Apple iPhone and other mobile devices. This optimization allows mobile users to load OGGOA quickly, without the clutter of images, while also letting them read full articles and participate in discussions by commenting. I think this is one of the most unique features of the site and hope those of you that have not utilized this feature begin to do so soon. If you are on a mobile device and wish to view the regular site, simply scroll to the bottom of the mobile page and click “off.”

Share button – Implemented Tuesday night, there is now a “Share” button at the bottom of every post. This allows OGGOA readers to easily share and distribute the latest Florida Gators news to friends and fans via facebook, Myspace, digg, del.icio.us, etc.

Design – A special thank you to Mike over at Big Mike Design (links in right column) for creating the design elements of this Web site. OGGOA would not have found the quick success it did without you.

With that being said, Web sites undergo many changes (some fundamental, some minor) over their lifespans (Web sites We Visit: How They Looked 10 Years Ago). OGGOA is sure to change and evolve as time goes on; this is just the start of something special!

    still need a new logo. blood font? really?

  2. Thank you for the criticism, Sarasota. It is not a “blood font,” it is a play-off of the famous THE SWAMP sign above the stadium that has text that is dripping. The site’s design will be improved and tweaked as time permits.
