I have been tweaking the website design recently as it seems that most of you ( 60% ) are using smart phones to read these pages. The improvements you may notice is that the search result images are now under the headlines so that the results fit better on these smaller screens. The right column content still drops under the main content so you can access the search features and menus. All these changes have been tested on larger screens so that the 39% of you using desktops and 1% using tables still get a great looking site!
Yes, Wargame Tactics has become so big that WordPress can not cope with the number of pages on the website. To fix this I have created separate menus for Warhammer 40k, 8th Edition, and Age of Sigmar. There is also a fourth main menu that holds links for other wargames and general links. While creating the new menu structure I have had a chance to review and improve the fonts and animations that I use. I hope that the new styling will make it quicker and easier to navigate around the website both on the computer and using mobile devices.
On looking at the website stats recently I saw that more and more of you are visiting this website using tablets and mobile cell phones. With this in mind I have been playing around with the site theme specially looking at some of the small text on the site. So one of the main changes you may see is that the navigation menus on the right have increased in size so you can navigate more easily on smaller screens. I hope this all helps!
Having spent a good few weeks updating the Tyranid Tactics and adding new and improved Tyranid Pics on the website it is now time to update the Chaos Space Marine Tactics for the 7th Edition of Warhammer 40000. At the moment the Chaos Space Marine Pages are short of decent pics. With this in mind I have a marathon painting session in progress painting Chaos Space Marines that you will be able to see soon!
I have been working on website the look and feel this week. Using the ‘Morgana’ web page template the site now has an easier on the eye look and some space for some drop down menus in the Right Panel. I hope that the new menus make it easier for tablet and smart phone users to get around the web site. I have also added some ‘301’ redirects so that inbound links will be redirected to the right web pages. There is still a lot of converting left to do though. Many pages are still needing to be moved across from the old site, and links in the web pages need to be updated too, so I better get cracking on!
What Secret Tactics Will You Find? Over the years last 30+ years that have been playing wargames and studying wargame tactics I have accumulated a wealth of tactics. You will find these tactics in these pages. Be prepared to dig around the site to find these gems. But when you have these gems be prepared to spring your new master strategies on your helpless opponents (manic laughing in the background)! Table Top Wargames vs. Board Games Table Top Wargames are different to board games because you have much more flexibility in the movements and strategy compared to board games. The other main difference is that table top wargames have pieces of scenery to play around. These scenery pieces could be make-shift, like a pile of books representing hills and buildings, up to very realistic set-ups much like you may see on a model train setup. Tactics Vs. Strategy There is a difference between tactics and strategy, and not many people know what it is. Tactics deal with the abilities of different types of each troop and vehicle. When to use each type and the best configurations for particular situation. Strategy deal with how to win games as a whole. How to…
Changed the web page theme to one that is more readable. Spruced up some of the formatting too.
