Exactly a year ago, on 9th of August 2008, this domain – www.mobilegyaan.com was registered and since then I have written many blog posts reviewing products, mentioning tips and news about mobiles, etc.
Since day one, I wanted to have a good and decent looking theme for this blog but due to time constraint I began with a temporary ready made theme. Fortunately, about a month ago, my friend Arjun turned up to help me out designing a theme for Mobile Gyaan and now this blog has such a good and decent looking theme just because of Arjun’s hard work.
I am very much thankful to Arjun for devoting his time and effort towards developing this theme despite of his studies and busy schedule. I am also equally thankful to Rahul who acted as the core of Mobile Gyaan, without whom, I doubt Mobile Gyaan would have existed. Along with, my friend Dnyanesh too helped me to a great extent designing the header images and logos for MG!
I would also like to extend my thanks to Pavan, Harsh, Farrhad, Satish, Yogesh, Saurabh and others who continuously keep guiding me to the right path! Over and above, its you readers who make Mobile Gyaan a successful blog. A big thanks to you readers too!
Major Changes to the theme:
Many functionality and style have been changed for a joyful browsing experience on Mobile Gyaan. Listed here are some of the major important changes made:
- As you can view in the image (click to enlarge), existing search bar has been replaced with Google custom search and moved to top right corner of the header image.
- A customized tabbed widget has been placed for best using the available estate wherein you can browse recent posts, featured posts and tag cloud
- Space for categories section in the right side-bar has been increased with ‘tree view’ so that users can easily switch between available categories and sub-categories.
- A small clip of my Interview on Zee news (related to SMS) has been placed ‘only’ on the home screen so that mobile users could be made aware about the loop holes associated with growing technology! 😉
- As far as individual pages are concerned, bookmarking icons (like digg, stumbleupon, etc) has been placed so that visitors can easily bookmark their favorite links on their preferred bookmarking sites.
Apart from the above changes, many other minor changes has been made in the theme’s functionality and colors!
Optimized for Mobile Browsing
Being a mobile related blog, it was hard for me not to have a mobile optimized version as many visitors like to browse this blog using their mobile phone. Hence, you can now easily and happily browse this mobile blog using your mobile phone! 😉 Also, you can get Mobile Gyaan updates via free SMS messages.
I personally figured out many bugs and errors while using the new theme in various browsers, but I still doubt the new theme is free from bugs, so, if you find anything wrong or have some suggestions for this theme then please do let us know via comments or use the contact form so that we work upon your suggestions.
I am really happy to see this theme up in time so that, I can now concentrate on new posts simultaneously with my studies! You can now expect new posts on Mobile Gyaan more often, also keep following me on Devils Workshop for new tech related stuff that I keep posting there.
