3 recent changes to HeraldNet

We’ve been busy lately. Here’s an update on a few recent changes to our website:

1. We changed the navigation menus you see near the top of each page of our main site. We’ve tried to make things more logical and easier to find, and we took care of some technical glitches. All of our most popular sections and blogs can still be found, hopefully a little more easily. A few links that were squeezed out of the navigation can still be found at the bottom of each page. If you can’t find something, email me and let me know.

2. We have a shiny new events calendar. Our previous calendar was kind of clunky and slow for users (I’m being kind). This one is MUCH faster. We hope you’ll contribute your events and help make this the go-to source for things to do in and around Snohomish County.

3. We overhauled our real estate pages and added the ability to search Zillow listings. There are some nice tools here now if you’re in the market for a home or just want to snoop on what your neighbors’ houses are worth.

Coming soon: We’re working on upgrading our comment system to Disqus, which is widely used around the Web and has some modern tools such as the ability to share on Facebook and Twitter. It should be a nice improvement on our current system, which I believe is from the early 1900s. Look for that within the next couple weeks.

We’re always trying to make the site better. Comment below or drop me an email to let us know what you think of the changes.
