Introducing the Latest Design and Layout Enhancements for Brad Bare

To welcome the new year and decade, I have unveiled a new look at Brad Bare and I hope you like the layout. I am seeking your feedback as to whether you like the new design or whether you would like to see any changes made to the layout. I have tried making the main page as functional as possible, without it being too cluttered. When you first arrive, you will discover a minimal design by dedicating the sidebar to individual posts and pages to streamline the look of the main page and provide you with immediate access to the latest updates.

The new theme utilizes some great design concepts, some of which are not visible, so I would like to point a few things out. The first fourteen posts at the top of the landing page highlight the latest updates. You can load even more posts by pressing on the back and forward arrows, with ‘lazy loading’ designed to lower the server resources and provide you with improved page loading times, as only the images appearing on your screen will load.

After the first fourteen posts, you will see numerous studio spotlights featuring the latest scenes from a selection of gay porn studios. I will be expanding the list of studios once I see how things are received based on your feedback. The idea of this feature allows you to scroll down the page to your favorite studios, then view the latest scenes showcased for each studio. You can also explore more posts by using the back and forward arrows within the studio spotlight category.

To help you appreciate scenes from each studio better, if you click on the studio name in the studio spotlight section on the main page, you can view the posts for all scenes I have featured for that particular studio. If you’re a fan of the classic blog format, I haven’t forgotten about you, the only issue is you’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the main page, where you will see the legacy blog format, along with page number navigation to help you explore the 250+ pages. The infinite scroll feature has not been activated for this section, as there are over 3,000 posts featured at Brad Bare, so each page will display twelve posts at a time.

Once you click on a post, you will be taken to a page that features the scene description, photos and trailer, all neatly positioned in one place for your viewing pleasure. The trailers only date back to January 1, 2019 (these videos are hosted externally and are culled periodically, as the storage and data transfer costs associated with video delivery are in addition to my regular web hosting costs and the trailers are large in size and very popular). The counter displaying the number of page views only commenced on January 1, 2020 when the new theme was launched.

The sidebar is accessible from individual posts and features a minimal design by including a simple list of studios and features, so you can quickly explore the scenes and articles. The numbers represent how many articles for each studio or category. At the bottom of each post, the tags are neatly displayed to help you enjoy other scenes featuring the models or studios. If you visit Brad Bare using a mobile device, the new mobile theme has also been activated to help pages load more quickly for you. When you are viewing an individual post, you can easily access the menu at the top or bottom of each page.

This update only involves the design elements, with new features coming online throughout the year. With over 3,000 posts featured at Brad Bare, being able to find what you are looking for quickly and easily is important. I would love to hear your thoughts about the new design, so please leave a comment below, or contact me with your feedback, whether it is good or bad, I want to know. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for visiting Brad Bare.

JANUARY 16, 2019 UPDATE
After receiving some feedback, I have decided to slightly adjust the layout of the main page. I am happy to acknowledge that most of you liked the new look, but I received a couple of messages asking if the design could have a similar feel to the previous theme. Based on this feedback, I have reconfigured the main page by removing the tiles at the top featuring the latest posts, I have added a sidebar to the main page so you can find other sections quickly and easily, plus I made the latest posts easier to read. I have moved the studio spotlight to the sidebar, with just the latest update featured instead of six updates. If you want to see more posts from a particular studio, just click on the latest post for that studio, then use the breadcrumbs at the top of the page to select the studio, or simply click on the studio name and all the scenes for that studio will load right before your eyes. I know this adjustment won’t please everyone, but I hope things look more user friendly and functional by making these enhancements. ~ Brad.

  1. Brad, the redesign is awesome. The new organization is so efficient and eye-catching. The care you have taken is quite evident. Much easier to get drawn in and lose a few hours, haha… Congratulations, your hard work has paid off, the site is even better than it was before.

    • Hello RL, I’m really happy to hear you like the redesign. I have tried making the main page as functional as possible, so it’s a simple starting point to find content of interest. I’m still working on some performance enhancements to ensure everything loads as quickly as possible and once everything is in place, I look forward to adding some new features. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. 🙂

  2. I really like the Studios and Features bar. Nice way to organize all the reviews and videos. I would like to see more polls. Always enjoyed the interaction and seeing the results. Course I realize it takes time to come up with good questions. I’m just glad you are back after the year off. Design is easy to navigate. Great job!!

    • Hello Todd, Thanks for your feedback and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts about the new design. I’m glad you like the new layout and I’m going to be updating the pages shortly, including the polls by adding some new questions, plus I’ll also be adding some new features as well. A lot of the pages haven’t been updated for sometime, as I have been focusing on new posts, so I’ll be going back and refreshing the pages to bring them up to standard with the new design. It’s great hearing that you like what you see and I’ll be sure to keep releasing updates for you to enjoy. 🙂

  3. Happy New Year! Liking the new design. Taking me a while to get used to it though figuring out what is where, but it’s pretty neat.

    • Happy New Year Joey! I’m glad you like the new design and there is a lot featured on the main page, so the new layout will take some getting used to. If I make any further changes, they will be subtle and designed to improve the experience further. Thanks for your feedback. 🙂

  4. Hello-

    the new layout is certainly colorful visually speaking but i have to admit i liked the older layout and never had any problem navigating the site.

    • Hello Joseph, I appreciate your feedback regarding the layout. One of the reasons I needed to change the design is because the developer no longer supports my previous theme and it was not working with the latest version of PHP, which runs my blog. So I had to change the theme, but I figured the new year and the ten year anniversary made it a good time to do this. I will look at making the top part of the page feel more like the previous theme and see if that helps give it more of the feeling of the former layout, but I won’t be able to revert to the previous theme, as I am now running my blog on the latest version of PHP, so the old theme is not compatible with it for some unknown reason. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts Joseph. 🙂

  5. Hello-

    you certainly have to update your website periodically to keep up with the latest technology. so hopefully after a while I’ll get use to the new design and won’t find it to confusing. 🙂

    • Hello Joseph, It’s definitely important to keep things behind the scenes updated and due to the previous theme not being compatible with the latest version of the technology that powers my blog, I was using an older version. Now that I have the latest version, things are looking more stable. I will look at making some subtle changes to the main page to make it feel more like the previous design, whilst still showcasing some of the other features as well. I’m sure you will come to love the new layout once I have made these adjustments and you become more familiar with the design.
