New Website Feature of the Day: Navigating FLOG!
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 15 Jan 2008 12:30 PM

If you're reading this, you know about FLOG! The Fantagraphics Blog. Here in its new incarnation, we have some new ways to navigate and find the things you want to read about.

In the right column you'll see links to the five most recent FLOG posts and links to monthly FLOG archives.

If you want to read all posts by a particular FLOG writer, simply click their name whenever it appears as a by-line link. FLOG posts are also grouped by subject using tags, so if you're reading a FLOG post about, for instance, Joe Sacco, and you want to see all posts about Joe, simply click on the "Joe Sacco" tag where it says "Filed under". You can also click on the "tags" link at the top of the white section of the page to see the "Tag Cloud," a big list of every tag used on FLOG.

One of the main drawbacks of the old version of FLOG was that posts were not archived individually, making it inelegant to share "permalinks" to individual FLOG posts. With this new incarnation, it's easy: each post has its own page, and the title of each post is the permalink!

At the top of the main middle section of the page, you'll see a row of links. "FLOG!" will take you back to the main FLOG page. The "tags" link will take you to a page with the "cloud" of all tags. Clicking "search" will take you (surprise!) to the FLOG search page, where you can look for FLOG posts by keyword, author, or tag. And you can subscribe to FLOG via RSS using the "feed" link. Here's where it gets a little tricky, because the "feed" link is different depending on what FLOG category you're looking at.

If you're looking at FLOG posts by tag, the "feed" link will subscribe you only to FLOG posts with that particular tag. So, if you want a special feed for FLOG posts tagged with "Robert Crumb," click the "Robert Crumb" tag and then use the "feed" link at the top of that page. Likewise, if you want a special feed for any particular FLOG author, simply click their by-line link and use the "feed" link at the top of that page. We've also highlighted a few of the most useful feed links on our RSS Feeds page. 

I hope this info has been helpful! Stay tuned for the next installment of New Website Feature of the Day.
