- Contact page to let us know your thoughts, comments, maybe some guest submissions, and of course, all your unanswered fatwa questions (just kidding, we are not a fatwa service).
- New ABOUT page with information on how to stay up to date with the site.
- AUTHOR PAGES with unique RSS feeds!! Go to the home page, and check out the authors on the left side. Now you can make sure to get all the articles from your favorite writers, and see some cool pictures :)
- New front page – You can see the latest posts from our main categories now featured on the front page. Recent posts also display up top and in the sidebar. Our active content also displays in a top posts heading in the right sidebar.
- CAROUSEL – check out the carousel under the featured posts. Click the arrows on the sides to check out some of our featured content!
- Related content – when you read posts now, you will see more from that category and more from that author displayed in the right side.
- Oh, and a new GOOGLE search in the sidebar to quickly locate posts.
iPhone and iPod Touch users-
You will now notice a new iPhone friendly theme when you load the site. No more need to resize the page and turn your phone or ipod to the side, a new theme will display to make the site readable.
Also, make sure to drop the MM bookmark on your homescreen, we have a new iPhone icon ready to add next to the Stocks and Weather icons that you use so much.
Look for an official announcement coming within the next week. We will be starting a MuslimMatters PODCAST with audio and video. If you’ve enjoyed our khutbahs and videos, make sure you subscribe and catch the latest. We will be podcasting out all unique MM content that has been posted on our site, and we will also be rolling out some new audios as well so stay tuned :)
But wait – There’s MORE!
New Associate Writer!
We are also pleased to announce that Siraaj Muhammad of StrangersOasis has joined on as an associate writer. Look for a new series of posts from him coming very soon as well.
We hope you like the new site, and the new features. You can also look forward to some amazing articles coming in the future that will insha’Allah set the bar high for Muslim online media.
