After an admittedly long time, the Crotonblog site redesign is well, pretty much up-to-date. Of course, a website is never done. Rather, they are in perpetual state of “works in progress.” That said, we’d appreciate your feedback on the newly-refreshed site.
Some other enhancements:
- To simplify the commenting process, readers are no longer required to be logged into TypeKey to leave a comment.
- Also new are threaded comments, which creates the ability to directly feedback with another commenter.
- Our search engine now provides results from lots of different local sources that includes; Crotonspace, HudsonRiver.com, HudsonValley.org, LoHud.com, The New York Times, News 12 Westchester, North County News, The River Journal, Westchester.com, Westchester.gov, The Wall Street Journal, and the Westchester County Business Journal. Click here to try it out.
- On every blog post is a small, green ShareThis button that makes it a snap to forward to a friend.
- Classified ads, powered by a Craigslist feed, have been added to the homepage. To insure that your ad shows up here, be sure to indicate that your item is for sale in Croton on Hudson when posting.
- Local news headlines, powered by Yahoo! Pipes, returns search results for Croton on Hudson from Google News.
