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 you click on the LIKE button, you can't see "Post to Facebook" so you can't get points! There is just a little square that registers one more like, BUT it DOES NOT become a point!!!!!!!! This has been my ONLY problem with Spark People since I started - I have had to Like or Tweet as many as TWENTY-TWO articles to finally, finally finally get my three points. The Tweet works better - but not always. Firefox works better than Internet Explorer - but not always. Once in a while, it actually works - but I'd say one day out of the month! I go for the maximum points every day - and have brought this up on Message Boards a lot - even today. I ONLY stay active on Facebook because of Spark People - actually, I don't trust it and I DO NOT like to be "Googleable!!!!!" My Facebook Page looks like a Spark Page - because of the vast number of articles I send to it every day. PLEASE fix this feature. emoticon emoticon

    Things are getting better. Wish they would fix the "share" on FB. I still don't usually get points.

    Love the floating quick links bar that pops up on the left of the page. However, it isn't always there.

When you iron out the kinks, I'm sure the changes will be great!

    Does anyone else NOT SEE:
- 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.

I can't find the save/share/etc. anywhere on the page. Is it just my browser??

Edit - never mind, this blog is not what she's talking about, LOL!!! It's definitely on the article pages. :)
