First of all, a huge thank you to the hundreds of people who responded to our survey – we’ve had some great suggestions of improvements to the site. The survey will be running for the next few days before we announce the winner of the contest so if you haven’t filled it in yet, please do!
After hearing what you had to say, a few minor design and functionality changes to the site have been made. From the annoying fact you had to click twice to get to a featured site, to the scroll bar in the middle of our homepage – we’ve listened. Here are some of the changes that have been made today:
1. We have placed more visual emphasis on news and tutorials
2. Designs are now updated twice daily
3. We are increasing our regular CSS gallery updates to 4 per day
4. We are aiming to post more regular news and tutorials – so you can get your inspiration and news all in one place
5. You can now search by colour or layout from the top of the homepage
6. We are accepting reader submitted news articles
7. Only one click is required to get to a featured website
8. … and quite a few more random improvements!
We hope that some of your niggles have been fixed and you’ll enjoy Design Shack even more!May 5th, 2008 Posted in Articles, Design Shack

As the popularity of Design Shack grows month on month, we have decided to expand it further and increase it’s functionality. As well as offering the same great CSS designs as before, Design Shack now contains tutorials, news articles and a whole new way of looking at our gallery.
You now search by how you would like to be inspired – by Colour, Layout or Category. This opens up a new realm of functionality for CSS gallery websites and enhances navigation greatly. It’s much easier to submit your website to us, and navigating around is a breeze. Designs load faster and are much more optimised than before.
We hope you enjoy it, and feel free to send us your feedback!June 29th, 2007 Posted in Articles, Design Shack
