The Current unveils redesigned Web site
Web users will notice a new Web site for The Current.
The new site, which was activated Wednesday afternoon has the same url as The Current's previous home page, at www.lansingcurrent.com.
The new site uses a new architecture, which is intended to make it easier for users to navigate. It also includes a myriad of new features that reflect the richness of the Internet experience:
¢ Readers will be able to post comments on stories in The Current.
¢ Increased capability to establish online "chats" with government officials or other sources about important issues.
¢ A much-improved search capability.
¢ The capacity to subscribe to e-mail editions and breaking news alerts.
¢ More weather information, with extended forecasts, sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset tables and severe weather alerts.
¢ A much richer interactive environment.
¢ Archives are much easier to browse.
¢ Calendars are more interactive, rather than just a simple list of events. Readers can search for events, or submit events of their own.
¢ The new site provides more opportunities for readers to submit material.
The site was redesigned by the award-winning team at Mediaphormedia, a division of The World Company, which publishes The Current.
