Welcome to the Future: The Phinsider Goes Modern

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

SB Nation has undergone a new massive transition to be more modern and stylish. The new magazine look adds some pop as compared to our old format, which was beginning to look a bit out of date. Let me introduce you to some of the new stuff

So, are confused about the new layout? Don't be. It looks a bit overwhelming, but it's really easy once you get the hang of it.


The big pictures at the top are called the cover and will likely be bigger stories that need to be pinned at the top. Right now it's in the 4-story format, but later on we can change it to a 5-story or 3-story format depending on what seems to fit best.


The "river" is just the new flow of stories that populate underneath the cover. It's just like the old method of the website, but it looks better. The stories will be in reverse chronological order like before, with some minor exceptions.


You see that block that says "2012 NFL ROOKIE QB COMPARISON" and has the "3 Stories" mark? That's a hub, one of the new features under United. Essentially, that is another page unto itself on The Phinsider. This hub in particular will feature all of the rookie comparison posts we do throughout the season. The most recent one will be on the top, followed by all the rest. If you click on it, it will take you to the hub containing all of the stories.

Over time, we will develop some more, such as an Injury News Hub., featuring all the news on Miami Dolphins injuries.

Think of hubs as turning the page in the "magazine" that is The Phinsider. If you click on the title of the hub, you will be taken to a page that looks like the Front Page, with a cover and everything, but it will only feature stories from that Hub. Genius.

See, it's simple. I hope you enjoy the new layout and the new mobile format, which I think is fantastic. Once the network has a chance to breath and catchup, the sites around the SB Nation network should also load significantly faster than before.
