Keeping You In The Loop
It's true that everyone is moving to mobile these days. Our mobile traffic is growing! With that said, we have to make some changes.
Home Page Changes
Our Home Page
will now display TRENDING topics. This includes all types of topics (ie, thread, articles, etc) where engagement is high. Topics listed on the page have been posted within the past 72 hours (in the Breakroom it's longer).
In addition to the above, you will now find more information about each topic such as the number of replies, username, and avatar.
Another addition is the forum where the topic is posted. This will make it easier for you to jump straight to that page.
The Trend link found in the Content Bar (dark brown bar above) will eventually be removed.
A new item on the home page...
is our way to celebrate our active writers. Any writers who submit an approved article will be promoted on the main page. This is just a start. We are working on a new FEATURED CONTRIBUTORS section which will make all our active members stand out - get more readers - get more traffic. For entrepreneurs, influencers, and innovators this is a great way to create a following.
'All Nursing Articles' Page Changes
Our All Nursing Articles Page
found when visiting the Home Page is now sorted by Last Reply. This was changed so that it behaves similarly to the forum Articles section. eg. All Nursing Articles
vs General Nursing Articles
For those that are not aware, the Articles link found on the Home page displays all articles regardless of the forum it was posted in.
The additional topic information (such as the number of replies, username, and avatar) are also now available here.
(NOTE: We do have plans to add sorting options. This will come later.)
Thank you for your patience.
UPDATE June 10th
Our #1 priority is our audience.
We migrated the entire site (and the Breakroom) to HTTPS (secured pages).
This is a huge undertaking for a large site such as allnurses.com. But, we decided it was in the best interest for our audience.
This means more Privacy and Security for people who visit allnurses.
- This will help prevent identity theft and account compromise. It will also help deter ISPs from tracking what pages are being read.
- This change will prevent malicious 3rd-parties from trying to insert code into our site, or track what are readers are doing. Man-in-the-middle attacks or spoofing are also prevented.
Coming up next month...
2 ) New Email settings with ability to stop/start delivery of all email anytime you wish.
More changes are coming!
