As much as I love the blog elements already available, there have been a couple things that really bother me, specifically size and positioning. For the mobile site, I understand these limitations, but I cannot understand how the PC site can feel so restricting in these regards.
- I cannot adjust the horizontal nature of the blog. On my site, it is stuck on full screen, meaning that I cannot tighten the blog to the left or right of the screen in order to place an app beside it. It is not like I want to shrink the blog pencil-thin. I just want to bring it to 3/4 of the screen leaving 1/4 of the screen open for an app of sorts. Adjusting the horizontal nature of the blog should not compromise the look of it either. It just just shrink the blog accordingly.
- The recent posts element needs some serious work. First of all, it is only horizontal. There should be both horizontal and vertical options. Secondly, "recent posts" should not be the only option. What about "most popular posts", for example? And it is currently limited to only three posts. Why not give us the option to choose between 3-6 posts? Lastly, the recent posts element also needs an adjustable feature. Currently, it is massive and takes up an incredible amount of space for both the PC site and the mobile site. I would prefer a slimmer option to the current default (and only) option.
I hope these suggestions are understood. Thank you for your time.
