New Look for KCRW’s Matt’s Movies Blog

Slowly, since the return from our Christmas break, I’ve been updating each of the 8 KCRW blogs to a new theme, called Arthemia. Finally, yesterday the second to last got its update. The new theme includes really great features for both the readers and our blog authors. From prominent Facebook & Twitter buttons to information regarding number of views and most comments, overall the information architecture is vastly superior.

I was holding off on updating Matt’s Movies blog b/c he has a unique and specially developed feature page for his list of recommended movies. We built the special page with a WordPress plugin called Magic Fields, and then built a specific category page w/ altered HTML to provide an alphabetical and paired down display of each movie by name – including movie poster thumbnail and standard links to IMDB, Netflix, etc.

I will have to recreate the list page for the new theme – however we were all tired of the previous blog theme and needed the update. Again – some praise for Arthemia. I love its standard blog format just below the more magazine features and headline! Looks worlds better!

Yay!
