Welcome to the new KevinMD.com!

KevinMD.com has undergone a major re-design to keep it updated with contemporary blog trends.  Thanks to Chris Olbekson at C3M Digital who implemented the new theme, and also keeps things running smoothly on the technical side.

I’d like to guide you through a few highlights.

Welcome to the new KevinMD.com!

Custom search bar. A much-requested feature, there is now a prominent Custom Google Search bar at the top of the site.  Use it to search through the 16,000 articles on KevinMD.com.

Welcome to the new KevinMD.com!

Channels.  KevinMD.com covers every aspect of health care, including  policy debate, health technology, social media trends and commentary from physicians, patients and medical students.  Content is now more clearly divided into channels, which you can navigate using the channel bar at the top of the site.

Comments.  With close to 80,000 comments, vigorous, respectful discussion has been always a defining feature of KevinMD.com.  Now, with the Disqus commenting system, debate can reach a new level. After you log in using a Disqus account, Facebook, Twitter, or Google, your comments will show up immediately (comments that include links or images still need to be approved).

Welcome to the new KevinMD.com!

In another change, comments will also be truncated after 300 words, and community moderated.   Please flag any comment that is inappropriate or offensive.  After a certain number of flags, it will automatically be hidden.

As per the Terms of Agreement, I reserve the right to edit or delete any comment for any reason at any time.

Social media sharing. You can now easily share content on KevinMD.com straight from the front page to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.  On single post pages, an additional button allows content to be shared on LinkedIn as well as directly to your Facebook friends.

I welcome your comments, and please contact me if there are any bugs that you find.

Thank you, and I appreciate your readership at KevinMD.com.

Comments are moderated before they are published. Please read the comment policy.

    Thanks Dr K – Is it just me, or are others seeing duplicates and triplicates of comments this morning on the newly revised site?

    Cheers,
    Carolyn

      The comments are showing up ok on my end.  Can you send me a link of an example?

      Ok, I see what you mean.  There were problems with the first import process, so it had to be done again last night.  That means comments that were left since Tuesday will have been duplicated. 

      Hopefully this will be less of an issue as we move forward.

      Thanks,
      Kevin

      Ok, I think I fixed most of them. Please let me know if any others crop up.

    Dear Dr. Kevin,

    I love the upgrade, especially that you can subscribe to threads without making a comment first.

    One minor request would be to add a date to the new threads.  There is a date on the e-mail reminders, but once you get on the site, there is no date.  Thanks for all the effort.

    Well, this is an interesting development (I’d like to thank another reader for the heads-up). 

    I’ve not been able to comment here for a very long while.  I’m thinking it has a whole lot to do with my “vigorous” criticism of “Obamacare” and the AMA on this board - based on my AWFUL HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE in public service – and poor government oversight of their own programs – and the AMA/JCAHO/DHHS playing dead the whole time. 

    Truth hurts. 

    The AMA doesn’t do “indiviudal advocacy” you see – their hundreds of dollars in dues per year notwithstanding. 

    We’ll see how long “the change” here at Kevin’s lasts.
