What the Heck Is Going on Over at the AERIALIS Kites Website???

Wow! This looks SOOOO different! So can you please tell me what’s happening right now?

Yes, of course, I can give you a quick update!

I’ve been working for quite some time on improving the website’s loading time and for about a month a go – give or take – the main tool that I use for creating my websites – Elementor – did a major upgrade of their core concept. I’m not going into details about that right now, but big things were happening behind the scenes.

I’ve been playing around with this new concept for a while and today I thought it was a good idea to start revealing it!

No, the front page didn’t end up exactly as I let you in on in this post, but like said at the time, they were just sketches. But now, some weeks later and after hours of tinkering, I feel confident enough to reveal the new look and feel of the AERIALIS Kites Website!

So far I have re-arranged the structure of the article categories to make them all go smoothly with the five new main topics:

  1. Blog – which includes all articles no matter the category
  2. Kites – articles about flying kites
  3. Learn – articles about learning to fly, how to build, flying tips, how to repair stuff, etc.
  4. K:A.P. – articles about kite aerial photography and videography
  5. Team – articles about team flying and the AERIALIS Team Flyers
  6. Stuff – articles that don’t fit anywhere else 😉

All six topics are found in six different sections on the home page and hopefully, this will make the site much easier to navigate. The same structure will be reflected in the navigation menu at the top of the page too (but I’m not quite done with that yet).

If you dig deeper into the website, things haven’t changed … yet! But soon the whole site will reflect the six different topics mentioned above!

I strongly believe this major rebuild/revamp will improve loading times too so that you won’t have to wait long for the pages to load and maybe I’ll get myself higher scores on the Google ranking too!

So I’m really excited about this new look and feel and what’s been changed under the hood. I really hope you think this is going in the right direction too and any feedback is very much appreciated so please feel free to drop me a line in the comments field below!

And make sure to browse by every now and then to keep up with the progress!

  1. Very modern design and functions.
    To reach KAP though, I had to go four steps. It could have been only two?

    I think it doesn’t matter for nerds, but modern people seems to have very little patience…

    1. Hi!

      …and thank you for your feedback!

      Yes, the less clicks the better, I agree! …and you’ve already got me started to think on how to fix this. I have a couple of ideas up my sleeve!

      And please let me in on any other thoughts of yours on the new look and feel as it’s being implemented! 👍

    2. Hi again!

      I’ve been working on your input for an hour or so and if you click here

      …I’ve changed the UI somewhat (not optimized for phones or tablets yet).

      What do you think?
