Mora Pandora’s new look is here! I’ve been working on this for a little while, and am very glad (and relieved :P) to have finally got it up and running.
Everything works in the same way that it did before in terms of navigating the site, as the changes are almost entirely cosmetic and designed to be a bit more user-friendly. The comments section is a little easier to read and the overall look is cleaner and more modern. There is, however, a mobile site in place now for tablets and phones, which means that the blog should load better for mobile users. :D
The two-column structure is designed to make catching up on recent posts a little easier, especially with the rapid pace of Pandora previews we’ve had lately! ^^
As usual, if you encounter any issues using the new site – please let me know, either via comment or email at mora0pandora [at] gmail.com.
Anyway, thanks for reading as ever! There are more previews and reviews to come this week. Hope you enjoy the new site. <3
Like it!!!! Looks good on my iPhone!!! ?? for the hard work!!
Thanks! I’ve been very nervous about doing this haha.
Congrats Ellie and thanks for all you do for us pandora lovers ;) I am sure everyone will enjoy the new changes to your blog ;);)
Haha, thanks Alex! <3 Please keep an eye out for any problems as you use the site.
pretty! I like it <3
Thanks Cindy! <3
Wow Ellie! ☆☆☆☆☆
I was about to comment on your previous post to praise you for the gorgeous new appearance of your blog! :-) Fresh and somehow romantic, I love it!
Congratulations on your work in every level! Best wishes for even more success! I’ll now discover more! ♥♥♥
Thanks so much Chrysa! <3 I'm a little stressed doing this as it's a biiig change for the website but hopefully everything will work as it's meant to. ^^
Well done! Looks pretty, however the blog posts on the home page do not sit across both columns (on the iPad). The blog posts are only one column so the middle section (second column) of the home page is completely empty. I’ve emailed you screengrabs.
Hi Judie, thanks for the feedback! That doesn’t sound too good – it looks okay on my iPad Mini. I haven’t received the screengrabs from you yet?
Hi, I’ve sent them now
Hooray, thank you for the hard work. I like it! :)
Also, I added you to my Instagram too. :)
So pleased to hear that! And thanks for following on Instagram, too! <3
Wow Ellie!!! It looks great- clean, well laid out, and easy on the eyes! Great job! You should get yourself a bead to celebrate the new look ;)
Thank you very much! :D I’m thrilled that you like it. Changing the look of the blog was a big part of the reason I moved from wordpress.com. And yes, I think a new charm might be in order :P
on my phone, that’s much better!!! good job!
one thing though: I don’t see a link for the list of 2016 promotions.
The 2016 Promotions is still in the menu, it’s a subheading under the general Promotions heading? :)
Congratulations Ellie and more power to your blog! In behalf of your pandora fans in Manila, all the best and thank you for being our pandora “guru” :-)
Thank you very very much Gema! That’s so nice to hear. Hope you in Manila continue to enjoy ^^
Love the new design, Ellie! Great work! :D I can’t wait to see what other previews you have for us!
Thanks, Kristen! It’s been a long time putting this new look together. It’s a relief to have it finally out there. :D
Congratulations, Ellie! I really like your new look. Thanks for all your hard work!
Thanks so much, Angie! I’m so pleased and relieved to hear that.
Morning Ellie :D!
You’ve been working super hard again, the new site is lovely :) It looks really good on my phone ;)
Thanks for being there to feed our Pandora obsession :P The work you do is amazing! xxx <3
G’evening Suzy! ^^ Thanks, I’m very pleased you like it. I had visions of doing the changeover and everyone hating it, haha. Thanks for letting me know! xxx
Looks lovely! I love the pale pink you’ve used for the borders!
Thanks, Martha! I wanted something neutral-ish but pretty, so went for a lighter version of the peach in the ‘Mora Pandora’ header. Glad you like it!
Looks great. Awesome work.
Thank you!! :D
How do I get to the mobile site please? I’ve just opened this blog on my iPad so is there something else I should be doing?
Hi Anne! The mobile site is just for actual phones with smaller screens. iPads and tablets have their own version that looks more like the desktop site, with the two-column layout. I think the iPad full-size version might be having issues but it’s hard for me to diagnose until I get my hands on one. :) I only have an old iPad mini.
Sorry, but when we can see a new post about new spring collection? Can we see the prices in this post
I don’t have the prices yet, sorry!
Great job, Ellie! This new layout is so pretty and user-friendly! :D
Thank you so much, Tia! :D :D
There are some pandora retired pieces now on sale on the hautelook site :)
Ooh, thanks for the tip Olga! I guess it works a lot like Rue La La?
looks great ellie can’t wait to see the new updates thanks
for all your work!
Thanks so much Debbie! Glad you like :D
Love the new look.
Thanks, Sarah! <3 <3
The blog looks great Ellie! So excited for you <3 :-D
Thanks Natalie! So glad you like it! <3
Like all the elderly AHA, I do not like the changes. But after trying and navigating, very, very , very good job Ellie it’s successful ;)
I follow you also on Instagram, but it’s not my cup of tea, so don’t be surprise if I doesn’t comment.
Nice day !
Hi Isabelle! Aha, I don’t like change either – and it’s going to take me a little while to get used to the new look too. Glad you like it overall tho – thanks for your kinds words, and for the Instagram follow, too!
Have a nice evening!
Wow, this is a big change. The new layout does look more modern and is nice (although I kind of miss the fancy text our names (here in the comment section) were in before!). Your blog is working properly on the iPad. It’s so easy to navigate! For your readers, the change appears seamless. A big thanks for all your blog work! :)
Haha, I’m not sure that I noticed the fancy text for commenters before. I’m sorry you miss it though!
Thanks, Judy! I’ve been wanting to do this change for a little while. <3 hope you yet used to it soon!
Love the new look!! I do miss the countdowns to the new releases though, it was so cool to see how many days were left before something new came out!
Thanks, Jahndra! :D The countdown widget was a functionality that came with wordpress.com and I lost it when I went self-hosted. It wasn’t a layout thing. :( I’m going to see if I can find a replacement for it this week, as I miss it too! ^^
Ellie, you have such a beautiful blog! What kind of a camera do you use to get such great images? (I need to up my digital camera game for a trip to Europe. The iphone is not cutting it!) Thanks for great Pandora release info always!
Thanks so much, Melissa! I use a proper DSLR camera. Most of the images were taken with an old Canon 350D that I borrowed from someone who didn’t want it any more, and then I got given a Canon 100D for Christmas. I’m not that great at using the settings, but it takes a nice photo. I also use my iPhone 6 for some photos, believe it or not – usually the candid ones of my wrist or the odd one here and there. This one was an iPhone photo:
Hope that helps! :)
