New SNG Planet

Almost forgot to come back over to PG Poker and announce the all new SNG Planet!

Yep, a new look, a new back end… and a ton of new material. As well as new languages on the way.
We went with Drupal (for any techies out there), a Content Management System which means we can add articles directly to the site without having to go through the creating in DreamWeaver then uploading with FTP routine which has been part of my process for a long time.

The design was created by a Mexican gentleman who works on a lot of gambling sites (I’ll pass his details if any webmasters are interested) and looks much cleaner and fresher than the old style. There are still some parts I am not yet happy with… small things like blockquotes and some tables. These are the minority though. Overall I am very pleased with the new look and hope that this new template will be with us for a good few years.

One of the side-effects of a very intensive couple of months transferring all the pages and testing the new design is that I got a little behind on my writing.

This has now been addressed, and we have a backlog of strategy pieces going up at around 1 page per day. We had to go through the articles one-by-one while changing the site, and identified a lot of pieces which were glaringly out of date.

I recently put up a list of new articles on my SNG Planet blog (my main blog these days) so will not repeat the whole list here.

Be great to see you over at the new SNG Planet… There is lots more planned, including a new widget, Spanish, updated French versions and more.

GL at the tables, Mark
