 SermonIndex Site Changes I


Saints,

I am happy to announce that there have been some small changes made to the "look" of sermonindex. It is hoped with these changes and new functionalities there will be easier usability and navigation.

[b]Change 1[/b] - To handle the SermonIndex Classics Podcast there is a new technology called "feedburner" which gives trackable and mutli-subscription options to podcasts. The link on the site goes here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/sermonindex where you can listen to, download and subscribe to the podcast that features the best sermons on sermonindex and sermons are added bi-weekly.

There is a counter on how many listeners there are currently are for the podcast, this number is the amount of people that are subscribed to the podcast, this number will start to increase as more people subscribe with the feedburner setup. It might take a day or 2 for the counter to start counting.

The link beside it goes directly to the subscription for itunes, if you have not subscribed and have itunes I recommend you do so by clicking here: pcast://feeds.feedburner.com/sermonindex

[b]Change 2[/b] - The function that saves to pdf from the forum threads has stayed the same, I have just made the image that you click on smaller and easier to recognize. It is hoped that I will be able to work on the formatting for the pdf output to make it easier and more of the SI feel. Here is a link to the forums where you can see the new image: http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=19206&forum=34&0

[b]Change 3[/b] - As per change 2 I have also made the pdf output icon smaller for the text sermons section also, you can see a example of this here: http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/articles/index.php?view=article&aid=544

[b]Change 4[/b] - I am quite excited about this change though it is very simple. I have cleaned up the look of the audio sermon download section for each file. So there is a larger "download" image now and the scriptures are more seperated from the sermon title which was causing confusion where to click to listen or download to the sermon. I am working on possibly making a tooltip pop up with detailed instructions on how to download the sermon by right clicking in each operating system.

[b]Change 5[/b] - This is a simple change also in the audio sermon download section for each individual file. I have take out some of the small icons that were there and put in the text to show what the numbers mean. So clearly you can see that there are" 18055 Downloads" which means the file has been downloaded or listened to that many times, 0 bytes is the size that has not been filled in, and mp3 is the platform, so if its a video file it will usually show wmv or asf. here is a example: http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=5125

[b]Change 6[/b] -Lastly, this is more ascetical but I think its more clear and looks better to the eyes. I have re-designed the footer of the page and added the clear contact information for the ministry also.


I hope all these changes are beneficial and help users of SI appreciate this resource more. More changes are definetly on the way as time and God permits. Some changes that are needed will have to be done by professional computer coders for my expertise is limited. There are many things I would like to do but do not have the skill-set at the moment.
