Website Relaunch

http://www.nalinisingh.com/News! My website has received a makeover! Swing by and have a look!

If you notice anything that's not working or is causing problems on your device, please leave a comment (and let us know what device you're using). Gabrielle will monitor this thread to make sure we fix things up!!

Hope you all love the new look! :-)

Very classy looking :)

I noticed in Internet Explorer (on my PC), the free short stories "Read More" links just change to "Hide" when clicked, without bringing up the rest of the story. The links work in Firefox. Same with the Deleted Scenes "Read More" links.

The "Read More" links work fine in IE on the Behind the Scenes pages.

Also, just wanted to say thanks for including a wide variety of book stores including All Romance eBooks. Will Google Play be included at some point? After the incident with Rock Hard (which I already owned) I just want to ensure the books sold there under your name are legitimate sales. I do have Shards of Hope on pre-order there, but it does show you in the author field and Penguin as the publisher.

Also wanted to add that I love seeing all the covers in one spot on the book pages. They are all so different.

I'm using Chrome 42.0.2311.152 m from a windows 7 computer.
- the facebook, instagram and so on icons above the 'Contact me' appear as quadrats and not the real icons
- I suppose the last entry mentioned under 'Nalini Singh's Weblog' should be this announcment and not 'Chrismas in the kitchen'
- I'm not sure whether the 'sign up'-button is supposed to be directly under the textbox for 'Country' (with no space between the two elements) and whether the buttons for the international pages should be squares instead of rectangles, so I thought I just mentioned it

I'm using chrome on a windows 8 laptop. I noticed that the drop down menu for the Rock Kiss series has the books in the wrong order. It has Rock hard as the second book listed, not the third. When I go to the series page the list at the top is correct, but the pictures underneath are wrong too.

I prefer the old version.

Thanks for the notes everyone! Keep em coming. The site is so massive that we've surely missed things.

@Anon - I was really attached to the old site (though I love this one now), but all sites must now be mobile optimized. Google is dropping rankings for non-mobile optimized sites, so you'll be seeing a lot of websites undergoing a change.

I like the new site, but saw a glitch.

The info in the 'Newsletter' column is overlapping the 'Series List' column on the main page.

Otherwise, great job to the developers!

Linda said...

On initial load, the Newsletter/Series List overlapped, both with each other and within itself (I had the smiley face over the "you" in the promise for no spam, for example). Resizing my browser window did fix that, so it may be (unfortunately) a tricky one to track down and fix.

On the bottom, there is very little space between the Country box of the newsletter sign up and the actual sign up button - a minor quibble.

On the Behind the Scenes: Psy/Changeling page - I like the expansion in place, but especially with the 4 columns, the area for text is very narrow and difficult to read. I even found the two column layout on the free short stories page a little narrow, especially when I had finished the story and wanted to collapse it or find the other story in that row to read - it was very easy to scroll past the tag while looking for it.

Just some notes on the initial glance. I just revamped my own website and it's a lot of work. Overall it looks great, and good luck getting the bugs squashed!

Heart of Obsidian's book page has a link to the blog's spoiler discussion of the book. I know not all of the books had a spoiler discussion on the blog, but it would be nice if the ones that do had the link on their book page as well.

One word "CONFUSING" Went (the other day) to look at something and then BOOM! What? Where'd the website gone!! *tearing hair out in panic* She.. Changed.. It.. On.. Me!!

Used to it now. Like old one better but still interesting and i only like the other one because i knew how to navigate it. :)

INSTA-LOVE ♡ no glitches for me so far.
Thank You for always improving things.

I'm using Safari on my iPad and the site keeps crashing and trying to reload without success.

I'm using Mozilla Firefox on Windows XP and spotted a missing link...

On the 'Psy-Changeling Series' site, the section on the right-hand side enitled 'Novellas', has a missing link: the site states "...However, if you’d like to read in strict chronological order, follow this link", but the link has gone.

Thank you!

I'm using Mozilla Firefox on Windows XP and noticed that the 'Guild Hunters Series'site also has a missing link - "..However, if you’d like to read in strict chronological order, follow this link".

Thank you very much

At the bottom of the 'Behind the Scenes' page for the Psy/Changeling series the row of all the books starts with 'Mine to Possess' and doesn't include the first three books.
I too tend to like things to stay the same, but I'm sure we will all learn to love the new site after awhile. Oh, I'm using IE 11 on a windows machine.

At first I thought someone else put in a different website with the same name as you Nalini. Then I realized it was updated. I have Windows 8.1 with IE 11. Every place I clicked on works. I don't know if you planned this but under the Rock Kiss series, but the order has Rock Courtship last when I know it's second in series.

I like the new site. :)

I tried it on Wednesday and was able to navigate, but when I opened it just now (on my iPad) it keeps crashing and reloading. ๐Ÿ˜•

Modern and simple.

Ange of Tampa said...

My samsung tablet only partially opens it. Sad. My computer crashed and now limited to see her site. Oh well.....

Gabrielle said...

Hi, Ange, can you tell me the model of your Samsung tablet, which browser and version you're using, and how far you get before it crashes so I can do some troubleshooting. Thanks :)

Problem report: I visited your website on my iPad, which is a couple of years old, but running up to date iOS 8.3. There was a problem with the home page where it didn't load properly - I kept getting a message saying 'there was a problem loading this page' and it would start over, get partway loaded, then I'd get the same message and it would start over...ad infinitum

Ps - thanks for the shards of hope excerpts! I'm excited to read the whole thing on June 2.

Not sure if you're still looking for issues. Visited the site today (using Firefox 38.0.5 in Windows) and the "Nalini Sing's Weblog" section doesn't list the most recent entries. It has two entries from over a month ago (May 15th when today is June 16).
