OzProblems site revamp and Problem World article on series-movers

23 Aug. 2023

Three years ago this site was given a major upgrade when it was converted to a new version of Google Sites, the tool used to build it. Since then I haven’t really paid much attention to improving the look of the site, even though the Google app has continued to evolve and add more customisation features. In a case of better-late-than-never, I’ve spent the past weeks making a lot of small adjustments to the site’s design and hopefully that will translate to a better user’s experience. An enhanced design is not only cosmetic change but should also make the site easier to navigate and its communications clearer.
