A Preview of More Changes Coming to The Daily Gopher and SB Nation

Large_thedailygopher One of the absolute best benefits of being a part of the SBN network is that they have an entire tech team devoted to adding new features, fixing bugs, upgrading the network and refreshing the look and feel of the blogs. It has been a few years since the last big upgrade/refresh and the rollout of SB Nation United is imminent.

I have a few screen shots of what you can expect The Daily Gopher and other fine SBN sites like SB Nation Minnesota, Twinkie Town, Daily Norseman and hundreds of others.

  • SB Nation United is going to make our sites load faster and run better meaning you can get to the content you want faster.
  • SB Nation United is going to make sure that you're seeing the best and brightest content up front with our flexible layout, modern design and reduction of clutter.
  • SB Nation United is going to make the experience on our sites run seamlessly from every platform, whether mobile, tablet or computer. No matter where you are, the experience will not change.
  • SB Nation United will not take away or change any of the community elements you love like FanPosts and FanShots and GameThreads.

Beginning soon (exact rollout is yet to be determined) you will see a new layout with some new features and of course the new logo. Please bear in mind that this is going to be a very different look and feel to the blog. It will take some getting used to (for us included). But the benefits vastly outweigh the negatives and once we all get used to it, we will never want to go back. Consider this change like going from Brewster to Kill, not the other way around!

The new layout is going to be the most notable change. What will be unique is that we can adjust the layout depending on what is happening and what we want to feature. A few selected screenshots below the jump

I'm just going to post a few of the screenshots made available to us to show.
