Chad who handles the website changes for us made our changes pretty quick–like within hours–got to love action that quick.
Some of the changes no one will see but me–but a few that you can see are the following–
The READER INITIATED ALERTS is in the right hand column. If you have something like a new issue that you want folks to see ASAP you should post it on that page–readers should check that page often if you want the most up to date alerts from others. Also it allows me to see the item quick so I can get a headline out if necessary.
Also in the right hand column is a RSS (real simple syndication) feed. Some of you likely are familiar with RSS feeds, but for those that are not you have to add a feed reader to your browser–very simple if you use Google Chrome.
Add the Feed Reader to the browser. Then you can click on the RSS feed in the right hand column. A small icon is added to your tool bar in the browser and any time we add a post to the home page you get a little notice in the top right hand corner of your browser–very slick to use.
We use a RSS feed from the SEC to get all kinds of stuff as soon as it hits the SEC site.
Lastly the ‘search’ function on all the pages now includes items in the comment section. Not sure if this is helpful as it may make search results too ‘busy’ to be useful. If it doesn’t work well we can always make changes to either further refine or remove altogether.
