Did You Notice Anything Different?

Did You Notice Anything Different?

 Email

Dear Friend,

Chances are that you are reading this message on your smartphone. A decade ago, you might have been viewing it on your desktop computer, possibly even in Internet Explorer. As the way online content is delivered changes, so must the way we display it.

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve changed the layout of this email. We’ve given each item a larger image, removed a lot of the clutter, and most importantly, optimized it to fit on your device.

Our design and development teams worked hard to give you the best reading experience, and we’re pleased with the results. Feel free to share your impressions (both compliments and critiques) with us so that we can continue to tweak and perfect our communications with you.

Thanks in advance,

The Chabad.org Editorial Team

The old format was the better for me. As I can see with older Chabad Magazine issues I do not see any "clutter". I am a senior citizen using a somewhat older I-Mac and when I enlarge the printing of your message, there seems to be a smaller screen size for the right margin and I cannot read any full message unless I reduce the magnification.

Is anyone on your staff replying or responding to the complaints ?
Your changes need some fine tuning...Like autowrap to ensure we can read the last words on each line. I have noticed several others ask the same ... Reply

Please, set the text to autowrap. As it is, it's impossible to read the last word(s) on each line. Reply

It is a better layout for reading on a phone, but worse for reading on a tablet (at least for my tablet--a Samsung Android devise using google chrome browser)--the font ends up shrunken to a hard to read size and can't be increased easil. Reply

Thank you for listening. It would be nice if we could get the video channels. In the e mail ,if you do I don't know where to find them, I also miss the short info What the Video is about and mostly who the speaker is before you push the watch button. Also was wonderful to be able to go back to previous video or next, to take a peak to see what's next. I rely much on Videos because of Vision Problems and bigger didn't make it better also a little more info on the Articles who the writer is, Changes are much harder for us older folks ,specially when they are so drastic . We want to thank you for all the wonderful teaching you providing, it is truly a blessing.

Could you at least put the names of the Rabbi or person that wrote the article back on for information ,and also for the Videos. You made the new format to fit the phone users. but most of us still use the I Pads , Lap Tops ,or computers at home sitting in their easy chairs. Or studying preparing for a Torah class. Reply

I for one apreciate all you do to make our reading enjoyment more pleaseable.
I very much like the cleanliness of the new forma, and thank you once again for all you do. Reply

Many people still use desktop computers. It's fine to make a new layout that you think will be good for smartphone users, but I wish you would acknowledge that using desktop is okay also. Reply

When I clicked on the site on my laptop, I was unable to see all the text. It seemed to cut off the last few words of every sentence. Reply

This site is an endless resource. First, you made the site amazing for the phone experience. In that time, I have learned much much more. Now the emails are so much better! Such a good move. The overall design is an A+ Reply
