SparkPeople Articles Get a Facelift!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, April 10, 2012



Good morning, SparkPeople!

Today you may have noticed that SparkPeople's articles (here is one example) got a facelift this morning! Today we improved the look and function of our article pages.

Some of the things you may notice are:

- Larger, bolder images at the top
- An easy-to-find "share" bar on the left. This allows you to easily "Like," tweet, email, print and even save an article to your SparkFavorites.
- Ability to read full-length comments from other members as well as add your own (right at the bottom)
- Relevant content and links listed at the end of the story

Don't worry, you'll still find your "Get My SparkPoints" button right at tne end of every article. You can earn 3 Points per article that you read!

We hope you like the new and improved design of our article pages. We have more fun changes in the works coming soon, too! Please let us know if you are having any issues with the new article layout or functionality. Thanks!

    When an individual make changes; the other individuals notice the the changes and pay attention to them. Those changes make others individuals to pay close attention to all the changes that have been made and look for the reasons behind the changes. Same thing happens when you make changes to a site. It is like having new garment to wear.

    Cool ideas im wishing for a food tracking bar that uses the bar codes to input calories eaten it would be so much faster and easier to use when we only get a 30 minute lunch sometimes

    Great font choice! Easier to read.
The floating Share bar on the left is a great idea, too!
Sometimes the comment section for Facebook doesn't pop up to enter inviting text when sharing with my friends. It just "likes" the article. Suggestion: make sure to always give us a comment box when sharing via social media.

Love that you are continuing to update and improve this site! That keeps it fresh!

    I'm usually slow to accept change....not crazy about this one right now. Hopefully I'll get used to it.

    "- An easy-to-find "share" bar on the left. This allows you to easily "Like," tweet, email, print and even save an article to your SparkFavorites." Yeah, sure it is...

I have adjusted all kinds of settings on my computer, tried Chrome and Internet Explorer and STILL do not have the share bar. Very frustrating! I know it's there, but I can't access it. I wish the buttons were still at the the top or bottom of the articles. :(

    I'm using Chrome and almost NONE of the articles have a share bar for Facebook any more. I don't know why, but I've seen this on most of the articles. I have not gotten my facebook share points for a long time. I only get them for the dailyspark or other features of the site. Help!
