New Blog Features

January 3, 2018

 

 

Hey gang, that "tag cloud" that used to exist next to our blog posts was getting pretty unruly.  Although it was pretty useful for finding posts referring to certain topics, there were so many tags that it was difficult to sift through to the important bits.

 

So with that in mind, I've added a couple of features to the blog - a search box and blog categories.  The search box allows you to search for any term that has appeared in our blogs (such as the details or date for a previous benchmark workout).  This is pretty handy if you have a pen and paper workout log to find out previous scores.

 

The Categories allow you to do some more directed reading in areas that interest you.  Want to find some more motivation for training?  Click on the Motivation category and browse through the articles there.  A really useful one will be the Skills category as there will be many articles pertaining to how to upskill yourself in a variety of CrossFit movements.

 

I hope these changes allow you all to enjoy the information in our blog a bit more by making it more accessible and easy to use.

 

Great work on the MILLENNIALS wod, excellent teamwork and solid effort throughout!
