Weekly update for January 3, 2016

Jan 3, 2016 — As mentioned in our New Years post, we’re experimenting with new tools for better shopper support and feedback. To invite feedback, we’d like to provide more insight into what we do here at Day of the Shirt. So we’re committing to posting a weekly update about what we’ve done to make Day of the Shirt better.

Updated t-shirt scripts

When t-shirt merchants change their website layout, we have to change our scripts that keep Day of the Shirt updated. Otherwise we might show the wrong design, price or sale. Over the past week we’ve fixed our scripts for Qwertee, Olyfant, and The Yetee.

Tweaked our website design

We increased the base font-size from 14px to 16px to make reading easier on the eyes. Also, we added a light-gray background to the “zoom” and “info” buttons that overlay t-shirt designs; this makes those buttons visually distinctive on white backgrounds. Lastly, we discovered that the website footer would sometimes float in the middle of the web-browser; it shouldn’t anymore.

Corrected an absence of new Star Wars characters

Alert shopper Amanda let us know that while there were plenty of designs featuring classic Star Wars characters, there weren’t any designs with new characters from The Force Awakens. Fortunately, some were found on TeePublic.
