We’re updating the site this evening. Users shouldn’t experience any downtime, but it’s possible you’ll see a few weird things on the site between now and 7 p.m. or so. Once we’re done, you’ll notice:
- An updated version of our test homepage at www.chicagonow.com/beta
- Fixed userpic and username links in blog comments
- Some tweaks to improve the site experience in Internet Explorer
- Various design and technical tweaks
- Behind-the-scenes tools to help our staff manage the growing site
- An internal version of the coming community blog we hope to launch soon!
As always, thanks for your patience and let us know if you see anything that’s broken or can be improved. You can send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or add them as comments to this post.
Update: We’re done with tonight’s site maintenance. Not quite all the fixes went through, but as you can see in the comments, there are some other features we were still able to add.
