We made some updates to the site this afternoon. The most noticeable is the introduction of our new homepage. Still very much a work in progress, but take a look and tell us what you think. Among the additions:
- An area for community managers to feature favorite entries of the day
- A daily featured blogger
- Recent posts and photos on the site
We made a few other tweaks to the site as well:
- Your userpic and username should now link to your user profile from comments (we've noticed that users without userpics aren't linking correctly, though. One more reason to update your profile with a photo!)
- The usual design tweaks and bug stomps that, hopefully, make the ChicagoNow experience a bit smoother every time we update.
So many things still on the development and fix hit list, but we're hoping to unveil our new community blog very soon. Keep your eyes peeled and watch those incoming tweets. We also know the Internet Explorer experience isn't quite as smooth as Firefox. We're working on it. But please get off that Internet Explorer 6 browser if at all possible!
As always, add your thoughts, comments, wishes in the comments here or email the staff. Hope you like the update!
