We are pleased to announce some behind the scenes updates on the project.
The updates are mostly enhancemements that will improv that will improve user experience on the website. There were minor issues with some functionalities, while some features were unavailable.
The updates include the development of new features on the front-end, and bug fixes of some functions both on the frontend, and back--end.
To speed up the development and fixes of those issues, we sought the assistance of open source developers on Utopian. We made a task request for developers to work on some sections of our front-end and backend. The task request was accompanied by a bounty.
After several weeks of collaborative development, achiedved the following;
We have done a massive overhaul of the UI. This is to ensure optimized viewing both on PC and mobile devices. The page is now fitted to any display you use in accessing the website. We also made it cleaner and smoother for better user experience. We are still working on making the mobile view suitable for administrators on the site.
