Goblin Valley State Park

Release Notes for version 29.0

This release changes the way we open pages:  inside the current window as opposed to opening the page in a new window or tab.  This requires a change in the way we exit pages - from requiring a click on a "Close window" button to allowing the usual swipe on devices like phones, while retaining a [   close ] button for traditional displays.  The close button is identical to the browser's back-arrow.  Included in this release are some invisible code mods, and grammer and spelling corrections.

Using html5 & CSS3, our site passes the "mobile friendly" test, but it really is designed for larger displays.  I think our relatively small menu text and large photos are anything but friendly to phones, particularly for the large number of low-resolution iPhones.  But a granddaughter who has never seen a large desktop monitor thinks it is fine.

So, although this release makes us more mobile-friendly, the desktop and larger tablets are still where our site is best viewed - where menus may be easily selected, and where large photos fill the screen.

This page is the first time we have used a large banner image on a page.  We like it better than opening a page that has little text in a Javascript window or having a huge blank area at the bottom, so larger banner images will appear for some of these pages as we continue to develop the site.

Mr. Pnkston used artificial lighting to back-light the goblins directly below the Milky Way galaxy in the banner photo.
