The state of delivering news and information on digital platforms today means there's a very good chance you're reading this on a smart phone or tablet. If you came through the "front door" of our website you saw a new, cleaner design of the home page.
The new, "responsive design" home page is built to deliver the best user experience on all platforms - from mobile phones and tablets to desktop browsers. The design is named for the way it "responds" to display a pleasing and functional page on devices of any screen size. The updated page has a cleaner, simpler design, featuring our latest news and information and other items our editors want to "anchor" on the home page.
Today's change is the latest in a series of updates to the site, which began last year when news article pages were the first to move to the responsive design. The responsive design was next applied to the CapRadio Music landing page, and many other topic-specific landing pages on the website.
One of the biggest changes to the page is in the main content area near the top of the page. Editors can highlight up to four items, and each will always be visible. This replaces the "rotator" feature, where highlighted items "rotated" in to the top spot on the page, making only one item at a time visible.
The "Latest Stories" section is below the featured section, and will include the most recent items posted to our News, Music and Insight sections of the site. You'll find links to the News and Music landing pages at the bottom of the Latest Stories list. I encourage you to spend some time with the new home page and familiarize yourself with the content and navigation.
If you came to this story through a "side door," or a link not on the home page, be sure to click to the home page to take a look.
