    Re: New Site Design - STOP making your site better...

    ...you are ruining my secret. Now, everyone will know how to cheat and I will no longer be better/smarter/cooler than all my Disney friends. Way to go, Josh.

    I wouldn't be too concerned. I'm sure my sour disposition will continue to turn people in the other direction and only so many people have the tolerance for a 3,000 word review of cheese sauce.

    You can definitely spot those in the know when you're on property - but there are still plenty of people not booking ADR's or FP+ in advance and getting on the EMH bus at 10am :)

    they are two adchoices banners. One on top one on the side. Both are more prominent then your own book banner. I thought it may be good to swap position of one of them in this makes more financial sense for you?

    they aren't bothersome on my laptop/pc including touch screen/tablet. I have Samsung note phone and keep clicking ad pages by error but that's not for your side specific. It's same with the dibbers unless I use their mobile version

    I agree with the new design - very user friendly.

    when you re size the browser the top panel wording disappears and isn't visible unless you hoover over it. It's tiny thing really

    Last thing I will add - I have benefited from your book and your cheat sheets and blog posts and I sincerely hope that with the addition of ads it will make it viable for you to continue updating and keeping your awesome site.

    I may start plugging the book/affiliate link in between the end of posts and the comments. We are still tweaking things as I went from Wordpress 2.something using the Thesis theme to the current version of Wordpress using the Genesis theme, which are completely different ways of doing it.

    No ads for me, at least here at work. I'm sure our base comm has ad blocker software on the proxy server.

    I don't either, but I have AdBlocker installed on my MacBook.

    I do have ad blocker and no ads on my chrome but for the purpose of viewing the new website I checked chrome and internet explorer to

    All free ad blockers I know of have the ability to access your data and I find myself lately tolerating ads more then the thought of some ad blocker company storing my credit card details.

    the ad blocker blocks the actual ad but you can see the space where it would be if it wasn't blocked.

    Ads can be annoying on touch screen as it's easy to click by error but I still don't fancy the idea of ad blocker software accessing my data or having to remember to disable it.

    And as they state in the link - you block the ads, you don't support the website provider and if it's MSN page who cares but for smaller website it can make difference.

    I am a fan of the new site, on my computer it is larger/more crisp?...anyway, I want to be sure I am not missing anything, and I am blog illiterate so bare with me please. If I am 'home' I see the column on the left which lists all the new posts correct? and the newest posts are the main information with titles and photos and to continue reading .. SO how is it that I check every day (almost) and then there is something on the left that I didn't see/read yet? like today it was 'surprise openings at Epcot' I had been on and not seen this post...is this because it is under "Disney news?"..please tell me the best way to be sure I don't miss anything I am a Joshaholic and love your snarky, 3000 word cheese sauce reviews!
