Out with the old, in with the new. Couponice.com.au is no more – instead we have re-branded to The Couponic by simply removing the e.
This update has been a long time coming so and here it is:
The Couponic still offers the same coupon only goodness you have come to expect albeit now with more responsiveness.
Mobile Friendly: The Couponic is now completely responsive and mobile ready. This means that regardless what device you are browsing with, the Couponic will look great at all resolutions.
Simplified: The whole design has been re-worked in order to provide visitors with a slicker, unified and easy to navigate interface.
Community Centric: Couponic is completely human powered and is supported by its members. The rating system is currently in development mode but should it definitely should help rank our codes more gracefully.
Store Representatives: In order to make the distinction between Community and Store Representatives, Merchants and Shops can now also submit their own coupons for a small fee, hopefully this helps the massive amount of irrelevant submissions we were getting without excluding actual Aussie shops.
Flash Coupon Click to Copy: Flash is no longer supported on Android Tablets and mobile devices and has never been supported on any Apple IOS device. Time to say goodbye to Adobe/Macromedia Flash. In its place, A coupon window will pop up with the code displayed for easy reference.
- CSS only Menu, Twitter Bootstrap is awesome.
- Tabs utilised with specific custom queries.
- Customised Hierarchy, Taxonomy and Permalink system.
- Community Focused and Coupon Only, not a fan of generic type deals.
- Taxonomy Pages rewritten to allow for various sorting abilities Example: The Iconic Coupons: Tabbed Active and Unreliable Section, comment system and quick help guide.
The Couponic is built on the Responsive Coupon Framework by Mark Fail of Premiumpress fame albeit with some major edits. I completely customised the gallerypage in order to create a solution for expired and deleted posts. WordPress Taxonomy has been customised to prevent thin content and extend the user interface.
When WordPress finally decides to extend Taxonomy Meta to match the likes of Drupal, this will make life much easier creating websites like this.
