Seeing the fruition of several months of effort is exciting, gratifying and, at the same time, terrifying. At least, that's been my experience as we unveil our new look here at WebCPA.If you've visited us before, you may have noticed that our re-designed site made its debut this week. This endeavor, which took several months of work, was truly a team effort by all of our editors, our publisher and all of the members of our Web team.The moment the new site went live this Monday was one I personally had looked forward to with both delight and fear, as there is always a certain amount of trepidation that comes with change. As the day drew nearer, I asked myself, on several occasions, "Will they like it?" and just as important, "Will it work the way it's supposed to?"All of the things you've told us you like -- the daily newswire, the Inside View columns, the newsletters, breaking news alerts and Industry Leaders interviews -- are all still here. While our content is the same, the new site has a cleaner look and we hope you'll find that it is more user-friendly. The navigation bar has moved to the top of the screen from the left side, and it will stay put when you move around the site, making it easier to find what you're looking for and to get back to where you started, if need be.You'll also find our search engine in much better working order (thanks again, Joe), and we've made it easier to subscribe to our newsletters and our other publications. In addition, we've archived all of the issues of our sister publications dating back to 2002, and we've added a new feature that allows readers to personalize their issues and print them in an easy-to-take-with-you-on-the-train/bus/plane format. As if that weren't enough, in the coming weeks, we'll be launching Web seminars and making our exclusive reports and rankings available online.That being said, as with any new initiative, and with most things that have to do with computers, we're still working out a few bugs. So, give our new site a look, with the understanding that it will only get better as we move forward and work out the kinks.Since the idea was to improve WebCPA for our readers, please feel free to drop me a line at melissa.aguilar@thomsonmedia.com to let me know what you love -- or don't love, as the case may be, about our new look, as well as anything else you'd like to see us add in the future. We'll need something to keep us all busy now that we won't be in re-design meetings.
