The homepage will now cycle through headlines, and the sidebars should offer fresh content every time you come back (so check back often). There were a ton of tweaks and fixes to help make this the most rock solid learning tool on the web. Check out the full change log:
Ability to have multiple headlines, randomizes which one is displayed
Related Guides Feature…shows up to 3 random guides derived from the first two listed products associated to the guide being viewed
Re-order product sidebar. New admin functionality to re-order products that get displayed
Home Page Popular guides list now shows 6 random guides from a pool of the top 15 guides to keep things fresh.
Home Page Featured guides list now shows 6 random guides from a pool of all of the featured guides and features to keep things fresh.
Fix sidebar from scrolling over sidebar on screens with a small height property
Adjust alignment of sidebar icon arrows in page views
Increase padding below each product in the right product sidebar in page views
Re-generate new product images with new width to match product sidebar width in ALS 2.1, use new images.
Fix side2 display and alignment issues in chrome and firefox. Still minor layout issues, but much better than before.
