A Shiny New Livable Streets

community_shot.jpgIf you are a regular visitor then you’ve probably noticed that we made some design changes yesterday afternoon. The transition went off without a hitch thanks to The Open Planning Project’s Anil Makhijani, Andy Cochran and Rob Marianski. I just wanted to take a moment to walk you through the new design and
provide another opportunity for feedback here in the comments section.

  • For Streetsblog, one of the big goals of the redesign was to make our San Francisco, Los Angeles and National Blog Network
    web sites more accessible. In the old design, links to these sites were
    buried in our sidebar. Now you can find them via the tabs in the
    header.

  • You can still find handy links to the Comments, Calendar and Submit Content
    pages up in the Streetsblog header as well. "Submit Content" used to be
    called "Contribute" but we thought that it sounded too much like we
    were asking for money (which we may be doing soon, but not yet). For
    now, we’re just asking you to tag your links, photos and videos so we
    can feature them here on Streetsblog. This is actually a really
    interesting part of the web site if you haven’t visited it before.
