I am always looking for ways to improve the site. Over and over again I have been reminded that one of the best ways to attract new and returning traffic is to have a site that is very dynamic.
Unfortunately, our front page, which had shown the most recent work of all our featured artists, was not, since on average only 1 out of 5 of our featured artists posted a new painting on a given day.
To increase how dynamic the front page is, Daily Paintworks will now show what was posted on the previous day, with the featured artists on top followed by the general members. The front page will now always show what's new.
You will still be able to click on the "Featured Artists" link to view the latest work of all of the featured artists, and click the "Search All Art" link to easily search through all our art.
One thing this means is our general members will now be able to be on the front page simply by posting. And, they can increase their exposure by posting often.
