AVweb's New Site Goes Live Today
AVweb's newly redesigned website is now live. Although it may look unfamiliar at first glance, the basic organization follows the old site, but we've expanded many of our topics and features to provide more granularity in how we present news coverage. The new site's graphic design is cleaner and less cluttered and will allow us to better present news, video and graphics.
Just to make things easier, the far left pulldown menu on the homepage--the Aviation News Finder--is organized exactly like the old site and will have labels and tabs that will be familiar to readers. If you're entering the site for the first time, you'll see a prominent box at the top of the page asking you to register. But the new site will recognize your old password, so just click the log-in link located just above the main navigation bar. Can't remember your password? No worries; there's a lost password utility to help you retrieve it. Once you're in, the registration box won't appear again.
We're continuing to index existing editorial material from the old site into new subcategories in the new site, so some of the tabs won't be populated yet. However, all the archives are there and our improved search engine will find anything on the site, regardless of when it was posted. In the coming days, watch for our multi-media section and menu categories to fill up as we catch up on indexing and sorting. Let us know what you think of the new site and any suggestions you might have to improve it.
