Dramabeans gets an updated look

 
Looking around, you may notice a bit of a change — nothin’ fancy, just a few tweaks here and there, a splash of color to freshen up these parts. Every spring cleaning needs a fresh coat of paint to liven up the joint, right? So maybe we’re a little slow and got to spring a little late; that fourth dimension can get tricky that way.

It’s nothing quite as dramatic as the last time we introduced a new look — remember the wailing and gnashing of teeth then? Ah, good times. But we love the update and hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

You should find all functionality to be the same, so no worries on that front. (If you run into problems, please let us know in the comments.) It’s mostly a cosmetic change; think of us as an Act 2 drama heroine getting her transformation montage — just without the chaebol hottie shaking his head no at every other outfit. ‘Cause we can foot our own makeover bill, thanks. Dramaland, take note!

As I saw the new logo that big, I thought penis. Haha. Sorry, but it does. Maybe because I had Lee Dong Wook in his shower scene as the banner as well. Balls and shaft.

I like the colors and the single quote but the db is a bit...

Is there a way to get maybe a new comments system? There are so many times when I get lazy about commenting because of the system. It's not that important, of course, as your content's the most important thing, but just asking.

I think I prefer the older look... this is somehow too sharp for me... somehow disturbs my reading... too contrasting? Or too much pink? :-)
But I may be just an old inflexible traditionalist... :-)

In any case, wish you all the best with your blogging. You have my admiration.

I agree. I totally dislike the pink. Bleh.

And I don't think orange and light blue complement each other. And orange, pink and blue definitely don't complement each other.

And the logo seems like a tiny yin yang symbol. I didn't think of boobs or balls, but it's just too small for me. All the other icons for the sites on my tabs are minimalistic and easy to distinguish at an instant glance.

Sigh... Orange + gray looked nice together...

I get the db for Dramabeans. And the black in the middle is it a stylised ying yang motive? Cos' I swear it looks like an embyro.
Why are some names mustard colours? Are they bloggers?
Oh and can you tell, I am the student that asks lots of questions in class.

Those are quotation marks, to symbolize, I suppose, DB's literary aspects, such as analysis and critique~~

But now that you've mentioned embryos, I can't get that image out of my head. I see 2 embryos :/

You know you've spent waaaaay too much time on DB when your mind went into panic 0.1 second after the page load because the color is not the same anymore xD Seriously I was like "Wuut wuut?! Something is different!"

But congrats on the makeover! It's indeed very spring-ish and fresh. It will remind us of better times when winter hits ;)

I had Journey's 'Don't stop believing' in the background when I clicked in to dramabeans, the perfect accompaniment to a changeover montage. "Living just to find emotion...some will win, some will lose, some are born to sing the blues...oh the movie never ends, it just goes on and on and on and on..."

I was really moved. So, I stare in awe and wonder. Beautiful, you seem familiar but somehow 'new.' Hehe.

Seriously, I love the new logo. The symmetry, the design and those quotes are just perfect.

Hope you don't mind if I request something. In an exercise of self-restraint sometimes I like to read recaps after the completion of a drama (avoid the weekly angst once I'm hooked). Just as there are links to past episodes at the bottom of the recap would it be possible to add a link to the next episode of the series, ie if Gaksital recap 1 would have a link to episode 2? Only if it isn't too labour intensive and other readers would find it useful then perhaps you would take it into consideration. Thanks

Sorry, this one we'll have to leave off the table. We've got something like 1600 recaps on this site, and there's no way we can go back to every recap AFTER new episodes come along just to update the links. But thankfully, that's what this handy recap index is for!

Do you build the list of related posts manually? I thought you used a plugin for that. :O

jb, I'm sure a shoutout for programming help will give you a couple of beanut geeks who can put together a wordpress plugin for you. :)

There's just the matter of trusting a crazy fangirl/ajumma with the code. But it's your call.

Cimi what I do in that instance is go to the LAST recap but don't read it - I scroll to the bottom, select the first recap, and when I'm done I use my back button to get to the last recap again, select episode 2, and so on and so forth...it works ok for me that way, maybe for you too.

Hi guys!

I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing this. But when I post a comment, an error message pops up that there was something wrong with the site or something like that. And then when I go back to the site and look for my comment, it's there. I know it's a tiny hiccup, it's not bugging me at all. Just letting you know. :)

It looks pretty snazzy, but the only thing I have a problem with what's color is a link and what's not. So it's pink on the homepage, yellow in the comments section, and blue in the actual post? No, wait. So pink on the homepage are not links, blue in the comments section are not links--and the "Submit Comment" here button is pink. But the links in the Resources section at the bottom is white???? Please make the links a uniform color.
