It’s been about a week since we’ve moved the blog to WordPress. There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes and I wanted to update you on the progress.
New mobile optimized site. When you access MajorNelson.com from your mobile device you’ll now be presented with a mobile optimized view.
• New comment system. Good news..comments are now turned back on. We’ve integrated the Disqus commenting system which will bring new features like threading, sorting, real time comments and more. You may recognize Disqus, as it is the same system that many other sites (like Engadget) are using. By using Disqus, this will allow you to use your existing account from such services as Twitter, Facebook, Open ID and more.
Now the bad news: The Gamertag integration from the old site is no longer available. If you had an account on the old site, you’ll now need to use the Disqus system. We’re working on a way to integrate Gamertags in the future, but I wanted to get comments back on the site in as quickly as possible and Disqus was the best solution that allowed the most flexibility for everyone.
That’s where were are right now. There is still much more work to do, but I wanted let you know what was up. As always, let me know what you think.
Update:It turns out that we’re having trouble with the mobile site. It may or may not work while we troubleshoot and fix it. Thx
