“Did you get a new haircut?”


By Jason McKeown

Why hello there, valued reader. I’m sure you will have noticed that we have undergone a transformation – and we hope you like it!

After 2 and ¾ years in existence – and following over 900 articles charting one of the most memorable periods in the club’s history – we felt that it was time for a change. The old WordPress theme we were using served a purpose, but it was fairly bland and we certainly weren’t going to win any awards for style.

The new look has cost a few quid and the aim is to better showcase the vast amount of content that is available on the site. It includes a scrolling front section featuring the latest articles, and greater sign posts to our archives. We’ve made every attempt to keep the features from before, including the listing of the Bradford City squad and their contract status – which is always a popular feature when the season is coming to an end, and debates begin over who should be kept and get rid of. Things are in a different place, but you should find it all and more.

As part of the testing that has taken place over the previous fortnight, we have made every effort to make sure the site looks good and functions easily on mobile phones and tablets. We are aware that a high number of readers follow us via these devices (I love hearing stories of people on the morning commute noticing someone nearby is reading WOAP on their phone), and hopefully the new look will enable you to continue doing so.

Please share your feedback on the new look and let us know if there are any issues that we need to address – either leave a comment below or drop me a line at widthofapost@gmail.com

And finally, thank you for your ongoing support. We’ve come a long way since our early months where we’d be lucky to get 200 readers a day, and our readership continues to rise and rise (especially when City are doing well). We hope this new look can help us to build on this success, and that you continue to enjoy reading Width of a Post.

  1. Looking good guys – love it!

  2. I really like the new look. Job well done.

    WOAP has been getting a daily visit from me during my lunch break on weekdays ever since I started following Bradford City.

    FIFA 13 game is what got me to look into the club in the first place (I like taking League 2 teams up to premiership). I chose Bradford and started looking into the team (players, history) etc and I’ve been a fan ever since.

    I wish one day I can cross the Atlantic ocean and enjoy a game live, but until that happens, WOAP is my go-to site for news and reporting on the club.

  3. Nice job guys – but to be honest the quality of the writing on WOAP is so good that you could send it out by pigeon post and I’d still read evevery word…

  4. Much improved. Very stylish and easy to navigate. Keep up the good work guys.
