Introducing NYSkateboarding.com v3 (2013)
It’s been 2 years since we launched v2 of our site and we’re finally proud to announce the launch of NYSkateboarding.com v3.0. Not only does the site have a whole new look and feel but we made it easier to find content and we really spent some time redesigning and adding features to our NY Events calendar. Below is a list of our top 5 new features/improvements in v3.0. Let us know what you think, send us your feedback below in the new comments area.
Our Top 5 New Features in v3.0:
#5 - Comments & Pingbacks – we opened up the ability for everyone to comment and now link up everyone who links to our posts.
#4 – Featured Slider & Weather – we gave some prime real estate to our featured articles and NYC weather now shows up on the homepage.
#3 – Upgraded Navigation - the navigation bar now helps you find content easier.
#2 – Spot & Shop Directories – we created directories for New York skate shops, spots and parks.
#1 – Upgraded Events Calendar – we’re using a new calendar tool to manage events. Now you can view by event, month, week and day or subscribe to events via iCal or Google Calendar.
Additional features in 3.0 include: updated About NYSB page, simpler page layouts, Spotlight now on the homepage, Our Sponsors sidebar area, Instagram widget, related posts now include thumbnails and an overall cleaner website code which should improve site performance.
Info for Media Partners, Bloggers and Contributors:
We’re looking to connect with more of you in 2013 and started by enabling PINGBACKS on all posts. Meaning when you reblog anything from NYSkateboarding a PINGBACK link to your post will then appear on our site. We will also be open to user submissions so if you’re a writer, photographer, filmer or editor we will soon have a submission page containing info on how to submit your New York skateboarding related work.
