Nips and Tucks to the Zvents Look

If you’re a frequent user of Zvents, you’ve probably seen the new look we’ve given event listings. If you aren’t on Zvents all the time, though, you may not have noticed the change– it’s subtle, but important. Here’s a rundown.

*We’ve updated the image display box shape, and dialed in image resolution to display the largest, best-looking picture we can.

*We added thumbnails for additional images- no more clicking through “more media” links!

*We moved the Like, Tweet, Add to Calendar and other buttons off the image.

*We moved the “Edit Event” button down under the event details, and added a handy “Add Image” button.

We’re very proud of the new look. The changes are subtle, but we think they help make the pages look sleeker while still putting as many options right up front as possible. At the end of the day, this is the sort of thing that really makes Zvents hum: not just getting information out there, but really making it look good and be useful.

    Is this design coming back in the near future. You guys seemed to have reverted back to the older and simpler design but wondering if that is just a temporary thing. I was really inspired by the new look and feel for what it is worth.

      Hi Mike,

      The answer, as always, is “it’s complicated.” :) The blue look had a lot going for it aesthetically, but didn’t have the full functionality of the Classic look. It’s easy to think of this as a step back, but it’s really more of a step back on the path- we learned a huge amount about what we and our users like, and what we and our users need. Now we’re putting all this together, and the best way to do that is to go back to the Classic design… for now. We don’t want any more steps off the path, so we’re taking a lot of care with this. I think you’ll like it when it’s done!

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your site. It appears as though some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Appreciate it

      Hi Lanora,

      If you’ve seen it elsewhere it’s likely it’s something your browser is doing. However, we’d still like to have a look at it. Can you email me with your browser, version and system information at support@zvents.com? Thanks!
