Do You Like the Site Centered?


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Hi Everyone!

As you may have noticed, we made a chance to the site yesterday. Now instead of having the site aligned to the left side of your monitor, it is centered.

We did this for a couple of reasons:
- Most major sites are now centered
- Since many monitors are now larger, sites look better centered

Please let us know what you think about this change! There are some things I really like about it that I'll wait until later to post until after hearing your thoughts.

Have fun reaching your goals today!

SparkCheers!

    Centered is much better. I actually like right justified because of the placement of my monitor on my desk, but centered is great. Thank you. Kathryn emoticon

    I have to say at first I didn't even notice it but when I hit post comment, I looked at it and realized what you were talking about. I like it. As usual thanks for always making things even greater for us.

    I didn't notice until I logged on with my big laptop. On the netbook I can't tell the difference.

And if I don't maximize the browser window, I can resize it so the SP pages are effectively on the left side of the narrower window, allowing me to then use the right side of the screen for another program.

    I have to admit that after using spark for almost 2 years, I don't like it! I put it on half the screen and an excel spreadsheet on the other half so I can transfer my data for logging diabetes stuff.

With it in the middle, I have to do some maneuvering and it isn't so convenient... :(

    I thought it was centered all along ..... it appears I need to pay more attention. To answer your question, I think its fine being centered.

    Ironically I been having problems loading certain areas on this site now. I wonder if this change cause it. I mean I been sparking for over a year but only recently have I been having problems with loading area like "daily blog feature" . The little green circle just goes around and around.

    YES!
It used to be centered didn't it?( a long time ago when I first started 04/07)
I didn't like it when it changed to the side--it was weird being off balance.

    I noticed something different but did not identify what it was till I saw my friend feed. I like it in the center, it looks more balanced. Keep up the good work. emoticon

    Either way is fine with me; but, the new centered view is a bit more 'balanced'.

Thanks for asking our thoughts.

    I didn't notice the change till you mentioned it, but it is fine. To be honest, as long as the site is working, I don't mind where the page is laid out. :-) I hope you'll be keeping the lovely pastel shades to each side. So restful to the eyes. :-) When you use a site a lot, that really helps. :-)
Hugs,

    Honestly, I don't like it and I have a large monitor. It just seems to throw everything off balance. I know the trend is to have them centered, but I really liked that SP was different and got so use to it being to the left that it's really taking time for me to get use to it. Any chance of changing it back?

    The only time it might be a problem for me is when I put my heart monitor readings in the notes and then need to read them while putting in my cardio for the day. I usually put the open screen beside the note box and noticed I had to move it over a little farther this morning. I was in a hurry though and didn't stop to figure out why. So it must have worked just fine.
