A Whole New Layout!

Ah, it’s so nice to get back to Poptropica, where nothing has changed at all in any way– WOAH. What the FUDGESICLES happened here?! Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock (or sleeping on a horse, like I’ve been), you’d have noticed that it’s a new year. And with it, comes a surprising change from the Creators: a new site layout! Timmy, drumroll please?

*drumroll*

site update layout

A whole new layout… a dazzling place I never knew… but when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear, that now I’m in a whole new layout with you…

…er, I should probably stop with the Aladdin references. BT makes those already.

Anyway… um, guys? Help. Poptropica runs Windows 8 now, I can’t figure out how to work anything. Well, I’m almost certain I, like many others, will learn to maneuver these changes! Now, for a recap of main changes in this the re-design:

  • The main login screen has been replaced by a carousel screen that I suppose will cycle through new islands (and other new features) when they come out (similar to the login homepage banner carousel)
  • There’s now a static image header at the top with the blimp and some clouds.
  • Important links are listed at the top, including the now-yellow Play Now button.
  • The link to the Creators’ Blog is now way larger, and runs through the middle of the page.
  • Islands are now listed in 3 categories: New, Classic, and Popular!

This brings in the New Year in a big way for Poptropica, and I for one support them! I just now figured out how to work the controls as I typed this post, and it actually looks pretty good! Good luck with the new layout, Poptropicans, and stay popping.

    Oh Gosh. I did a double take when I saw this. Laying it on pretty heavy Poptropica…I DON’T hate it. I just really miss that quiet, beautiful website.

    Accurate representation, Blake XD I saw the site on my own too… and it’s really rather jarring o.o I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for it. At least it still has its classic Poptropicans running to the right screen in the window when you click on the play now button.

    There is supposed to be a yellow button that says “play now” but it will not show up for me. What do I do?

    If there are Club Penguin players around here, you can say that the Poptropica homepage is kinda similar to Club Penguin’s homepage- the carousel, there’s a play button and the links above the screen. Anyways, I thought Poptropica would remove the random NPCs, the options and etc. but I’m very surprised that it stayed and I ‘m very happy the homepage had a new design. Surprisingly, the most popular islands are the classic islands and not the new ones!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
