The Mirror unveils redesigned Web site
Web users will notice a new look for The Mirror's Web site.
The newly redesigned site, which was activated Tuesday afternoon, has the same url as The Mirror's previous home page, at www.tonganoxiemirror.com.
The new site uses a new architecture, which is intended to make it easier for users to navigate. It also includes a myriad of new features that reflect the richness of the Internet experience:
¢ Readers will be able to post comments on stories in The Mirror.
¢ Increased capability to establish online "chats" with government officials or other sources about important issues.
¢ Much-improved search capability.
¢ The capacity to subscribe to e-mail editions and breaking news alerts.
¢ More weather information, with extended forecasts, sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset tables and severe weather alerts.
¢ A much richer interactive environment.
¢ Archives are much easier to browse.
¢ Calendars are more interactive, rather than just a simple list of events. Readers can search for events, or submit events of their own.
¢ The new site provides more opportunities for readers to submit material.
The site was redesigned by the award-winning team at Mediaphormedia, a division of The World Company, which publishes The Mirror.
