The 30 Something Moms group just got an upgrade!

UPDATE: The new look is now live!


We're in the process of improving the layout of CafeMom Groups. Starting this week, the 30 Something Moms group will be getting a new look.

 

What's changing?

We're moving the group navigation (the green links currently on the left side of every page) up to the top of the page and emphasizing only the ones that are used most.  We’re also adding some new sections in the right column to show you fresh, new and interesting things going on in your group.

Here's a sample of how it will look:

If you want to get a sneak peak at the new format, check out groups like July 2010 Babies and February 2011 Babies.



Why are changes being made?

To better highlight what's new and interesting. The right column will now be used to display active posts, group photos, posts featured by the group admins, and more.

To make things simpler. In the current navigation, links that aren't often used take up a lot of space. The new navigation makes it easier to get to the group homepage, forums, and photos. It will make it much quicker to navigate through groups with more than one forum.

To give us the flexibility to add more cool stuff in the future. For example, members of the month-specific pregnancy groups like June 2011 Babies now get their own pregnancy tickers and daily pregnancy polls right within the group. We are planning lots of cool features just for your groups like Featured Photo Albums and Contests, Group Challenges and more coming soon!

To dedicate as much space as possible to your conversations. The main part of the page will now be slightly wider and forum posts appear higher on the page so you don't have to scroll as much.



We need your help!

We'll be looking to you for constructive feedback about what's working, what needs improvement, and most importantly, what other kinds of things you'd like to see added to Groups.  We know changes like this can take some getting used to so please give this a chance even if you aren’t a big fan of change.  We look forward to making CafeMom Groups your favorite place to hang out.

I hope this doesn't make it too confusing.  It should be a good thing!
