Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Big News!

Well, we’ve hinted at it before, but now it’s finally here: a whole new Evil Beet will be coming your way later tonight!

The new layout is cleaner, more modern and hopefully something that you’ll really love. Getting it all set up does mean that the site will go down for about an hour or two this evening, but never fear – we’ll be back up and running with a new look shortly after.

We can’t wait to unveil the new site to you, and hope you’ll stick with us as we iron out any kinks and get the place spruced up a bit.

  • If I can read an article without fighting thru an ad popping up in the middle while I’m reading and I can see a picture without a large band of advertising across the bottom….that makes you play “Find the ‘X'” — then it would be a good thing.

  • There isn’t a comment-button and you can’t see if a post has any comments on the main site. I don’t wanna have to klick into every post to see if someone said anything.

  • Full site does not load properly on iPad 2. Frames not correct, pink is VERY garish, put # of comments back (what a cheap way to get page views).

  • OK. You’ve now taken everything that was once original about this site and become a generic gossip site that cares more for hits than reader feedback. I’m done! I’m gone!!

  • Woah okay, woah. Yeah, looks very modern. I hope it won’t take me too long to get used to it. It was a little shock right now, I’ll have to say.

  • I couldn’t figure out how to comment without clicking on a “Recent Comments” link to find them. As long as you don’t require us to register and log in through FB, Twitter or Google+, I’ll come here. I’m not doing that. Oh no… you know how to get rid of me. :(

  • I like the new layout! Although is it just me or can you not see how many comments an article has unless you click on it? I mean, that’s not a big deal, but am I missing something?

  • I really liked the old site but, I will give the new one a chance. Not too many people are keen on change of any kind …. Btw… The pink is rough .

    • Yeah, so far the only think I dislike is that there’s not even a millimetre of space between the edge of the page and the start of the text. Mice it over a bit pleeaaaaase?

  • Is it just me, or are there a ton more ads on the re-designed site? I understand the need for websites to make money, but it feels like everywhere i look on the site I’m hit with an ad.

  • I just wish you would stop with the oozing, disgusting “SHOCKING: Meat Industries CAUGHT” ad on the sidebar of every page. I’ve honestly stopped coming to the site very often bc of it and I’m a long time reader. The picture is really gross and I don’t want to be forced to look at it. THAT redesign would get me to come back to the site.

  • Agreed. The meat ad is disgusting and I too am tired of all the ads, especially that one. The pink is tooooooo much. Your are losing me too.

  • I don’t think it’s that bad. I think it’s cute. It’s nice to have a change every once and a while. And why shouldn’t EB change the way it looks? New editors, new writers, new look. I doubt people are going to stop coming to this site because it’s changed the way it looked a little bit. I do think it would be nice if we got a mobile site going on here, though!

  • You guys are so whiny, holy crap. I like this new redesign, a lot. It’s sleek and updated, and I am definitely still a loyal fan.

  • hmmmmmmm, can’t say that i care. i’m with leah. hey EB chickies, thanks for providing me with a place to get sassy & gossipy & kill some time with fellow snarks! always appreciated.
