Some new features have been added to the site today, here’s a quick run-down:
Some tables on the site can now be sorted by you as you wish to make the data a bit more flexible and interactive. Click on a column to sort the data by it, or hold down shift and click on multiple columns to sort the data in more than one way.
You’ll see more and more tables on the site making use of this – here’s four which are available already:
Howe many races each driver started and finished
Which drivers were eliminated in Q1, Q2 and Q3
Penalties by driver
Pit stops strategies by driver
These tables can be distinguished from normal, un-sortable tables by the blue colouring on the top bar.
Front page Tweet
I often use Tweets to alert F1 Fanatic’s 50,000-plus followers to relevant content on the site that might not be immediately obvious from the homepage. The most recent Tweet now appears at the top of the homepage so those who aren’t following can also get the benefit of that.
There’s an interim fix for the broken search field.
Lessening homepage clutter
Space on the homepage is at a premium on race weekends so old F1 Fanatic Live posts will now disappear when they are out of date. For those paying very close attention, this is why the total number of articles on the site appears to have just fallen by over 500.
Due to the persistent use of the RSS feed for copyright infringement and content theft, F1 Fanatic is now providing article summaries instead of full text via the feed.
Mobile users should now find a ‘log in’ button at the top of the site as had been requested.
There have also been various CSS tweaks and fixes and some changes to the positioning of ads for mobile devices.
