FARGO – Today we introduced larger photos to highlight our key stories on the top of inforum.com as well as across our other Forum Communications Co. websites.
What do you think about the new look?
We have also rolled out a new inforum mobile site this week and users of an iPhone, iTouch, iPad or Android device should benefit from the new experience. The site can be accessed now at mobile.inforum.com.
The site’s layout conforms to the width of the device in either landscape or portrait orientation. Categories, leading off with recent updates, are sectioned off and allow visitors to see the top headlines in each category.
There will also be a bookmark bubble on Apple-based devices that show the user how to add the newspaper shortcut favicon to the desktop. This will show up a few times until the user decides to add it or go away if simply ignored.
The HTML5-based site site also allows for a quick leap over to our Areavoices blogs.
The marketplace maps also utilize geolocation, if the user decides to use that function to show different advertising offers near their location.
FCC Interactive product development manager Chris Welle, project manager Zac Echola, programmer Tim Hanson and graphic artist Kim Le helped develop the new site.
