It’s EIGHT! This could be 115 days before, on 8 April 2011. But I’m happy for that, after all the celebration release came into light! I was afraid to see my lazy hours in earlier part of this year but I became hopeful while I analyze my last few days’ works. I was working day and night for different page’s updates and modifications. The content isn’t much, but the work behind them requires many sleepless nights and restless days. I always tried to find, what can provide the smoother experience in SHAON84 within my little intellectual capacity. In this celebration update SHAON84 do have many updates to share with joy. One big one is the home page. This is the first celebration of SHAON84 after it got rebranded (former ‘SHAON’).
Something Special About This Date
The date of celebration has some interesting side. Today is 2 August 2011. August is the 8th month of the year, and it’s SHAON84’s 8th celebration, and 2 cubes 8! Another interesting fact is the number of web pages in About SHAON84 and Personal SHAON84 is same, 19. And it came after deleting some pages. And it discovered later. Interesting, Hah?
New Home Page
For the last eight years, SHAON84 has been trying to create such web environment in its own area, where a visitor can easily access to any part of the site. And, yes, finally, this year, SHAON84 is very close to have full mark in this issue. In the new home page there are at least two ways that will ensure a visitor’s wider accessibility to the whole site.
There is a mini site map in the page which will help you to have a “Bird’s Eye View” to the whole site. This will help you a lot to access any important page of SHAON84. There is sitemap, too. I’m coming to this issue later.
This is a great thing that I was looking for a long time and very luckily I got the code. Basically, it’s nothing but Google search which will search within the site. This is a great thing which will help anyone to find any required topic here.
Links of Online Social Accounts Linked
SHAON84 do have many accounts in different sites in online and I want to do connect with you with any or all social media where SHAON84 have account. In this update, you can get connected to different social profiles more conveniently, because, now the links are at the bottom of home page.
Credit Line: Blog In Action
In credit line, at the bottom of the page, many important URLs added for visitors’ convenience. Some URLs are of WordPress blog, where the SHAON84 Blog hosted. WordPress gives some good feature, among them one very powerful one is, Custom Build Form. SHAON84 do utilized that. Forms those are in bottom of the home page are: Feedback, Subscribe, Blog, Testimonial. In Contact page (in About section), another blog form added: Contact form.
Design & Others
In designing the site, the color, design, visitor experience etc. were cared a lot. I gave a long time to test the site’s view and other issue. In this page, the presentation of providing update is easier. Not all the link will have own detail story on update – that’s the new practice for SHAON84. I hope this will encourage having frequent updates in SHAON84. This time, CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) has been greatly used for setting URL color. I think you may like this fun of URL color.
A full sitemap has initiated. It will be monitored under ‘About SHAON84’ brand. I had a wish to have a sitemap for many days. Finally this came true. This will also help you a lot to find right thing. This site map also have search box, Tiny URL’s list, list of sub-domains.
Age of Tiny URL & Sub-Domain
From this release SHAON84 will use tiny URL (account in Bit.ly) to promote links majorly in Facebook and Twitter. This will bring an opportunity to have wider choice to promote new and updated links.
A new brand has been launched, ‘Xtra’, ‘SHAON84 Xtra’. Xtra will open a new door of freedom to launch new page and share them. The idea is, sometimes, it happens that, I have an idea on a topic that directly doesn’t match with any existing brand or page. In some cases, there is a related brand (or section) but if I want to add this page, that require to go through a time-consuming complex process; but time is limited. To manage this situation and to serve better, I firmly believe this page concept will surely increase productivity level and service level. Xtra don’t have any major content since now, but will come in near future.
‘Personal SHAON84’ Got Some Modification
Each page of the Personal SHAON84 has got at least one change. In each page, a line to separate the page content and the credit line (at the bottom of the page), a green line has been put in between them. A bug has been fixed; the bug was: the menu and content at the right side ware not began from the same place at the top. All browsers, specially: IE, Firefox, Chrome & Opera showed the problem. It looked very odd. The solution was found many times back but it came in action after many days later. Besides, there are also major or little changes. Some page have been removed completely; like Contact & Schedule (it seems redundant), In Online (it’s redundant to contact page), Words 2 U (not important), Photo (decided not to promote any personal face photo of Shaon) & Text On Myself (not important and redundant). Personal’s home page got a new picture, Interest page got ‘some’ changes only, and My Chairs page has got a new style and additional information. I recommend to specially visit the Home page and My Chairs page.
It’s About ‘About’: Some Changes
Like ‘Personal’, each page in ‘About’ section has got changes. Common change is the red line between the content and the credit line, that will differentiate the content and the credit line at the bottom. The same visible bug (like Personal SHAON84) was also fixed in About SHAON84; specially the pages those were under the sub-topic ‘Basic’. The bug was, the left menu table and right sided content were not in straight line (from top of the page). In this release, the deleted pages are: Sponsored Web, Subsidiary Web, Different Parts (Renamed and re-designed to Brands), Define Friend, Friends’ Groups, Org. Friend, Hearing You, Work Inside, Reg. Your Media and Short Overview (In Press). The major changes took place in the following pages: Aim & Primary Info, Profile, Brands, External Orgs, Contact, History, From The Dreamer (Photo removed) and The Logo. I recommend to visit: Brands, Contact and The Logo.
Postponement of Four Brands
SHAON84 postpones the activity and pages of four brands, they are: Friend SHAON84, Mobile SHAON84, i2we & SHAON84 Org Friend (under About SHAON84). The detail of the whole matter can be found in the article titled “Producer’s Note: Statement for Postponed Brands: Friend, Mobile, i2we & Org Friend”.
Old Pages of SHAON Are Deleted from Server
After ten months of re-branding of ‘SHAON84’ (which was ‘SHAON’ before), the web pages and contents of the old ‘SHAON’ has been deleted. Due to the possibility of creating identity problem, SHAON84 has decided to delete those pages physically.
There are other updates too. The assignment portal SHAON84 mbaEducation has got relevant and necessary updates including assignments. You will find detail of them in mbaEducation ‘Latest Arrival’ page. Another, known bug of downloading some PDF files (specially files bigger than 512KB) of SHAON84 has been fixed. Prior to this update those files were hosted in free hosting areas. Now you can download them without any hassle (please report if you have any trouble). The files that were in that issue are: SHAON84 Annual Report of 2007, 2008, 2009; Spring 2008 issue of amaderStory (a publication of SHAON’s subsidiary amaderEWU).
