Check Out The New Shots

Welcome to a new look for Shots!

Scott Hensley

We've spruced up the place in an experiment that we hope you'll help us with.

Our goal is to make Shots more useful by presenting posts more clearly. We're also trying to make it easier for you to find other relevant posts and stories.

Right off the bat you'll probably notice that we've cleaned up the top of the blog, so you can dive into posts more quickly. In the new layout, we also have the option of using bigger photos.

On your way to reading a post, you'll come across a horizontal bar that now organizes our work into five main categories. Those tabs will take you to new pages that corral related material in one place.

Below that bar, you'll also see specific topics we're keeping an eye on. Lower still, in the main river of news, you'll see featured posts we think are worth a read.

Elsewhere on Shots you'll find pointers to posts that may appeal to you based on the type of post you're looking at. We're also using tags in a more visible way to label posts and to assemble topic pages where you can find posts on the same subject. For more on the thinking behind our new approach, see this explanation from Wright Bryan on the Inside NPR blog.

If you're looking for our RSS feed or the feed for the Your Health podcast, scroll down to the footer, which is now loaded with tools.

That's also where you'll find the contact form to let us know what you think about the new set-up, and, as always, to give us feedback above and beyond the comments on individual posts.

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you enjoy the new Shots and decide to stay a while.
