We’re all about makeovers and new styles over here at The Voice-Tribune – but this time we’re not talking about fashion, home furnishings or the latest cosmetics.
We are pleased and proud to announce the release of our new website, which you’ll find where we’ve always been online: www.voice-tribune.com.
For starters, it’s sleeker, cleaner and fresher. It’s also completely mobile friendly, which means you can carry it with you on your iPad, iPhone or the smartphone of your choice.
With our newly revamped look, photos load quicker, videos run smoother and articles flow smoothly on the computer screen.
You’ll also notice a “slider” of our top stories – this includes videos, galleries and articles – that we’ll change out often, not just once a week when the print publication hits the newsstands. But – don’t discount our print product either, since we will always offer exclusive in-print features you won’t get online and vice versa.
In addition to the aesthetic redesign, we’re also increasing our number of online voices and will continue to do so over the next several weeks. Stay tuned for more specialty blogs on topics that range from music to the local food scene to sports to politics to parenthood, – and much more.
“The Voice wants to be your voice, so increasing the number of perspectives available to our readers just makes sense,” said Managing Director Tracy Blue. “With this redesign, we believe our readers will benefit from the website’s efficiency, but just as important, it looks fabulous.”
We can thank Shawn Coots, a web developer for Net Tango, for the way the revised site looks and acts.
“It’s much easier to navigate and has better content,” Coots said.
Additionally, readers can now submit their events directly to the website, ordering photos is easier, and readers can easily upload their own wedding, anniversary and engagement announcements.
“One of the key ingredients of the site is mobility,” Coots said.
