New website tenative launch scheduled

We are tentatively scheduled to launch the new Capital Press website on Monday, July 27.

That date is still subject to change, but we are moving full steam ahead to make that date.

I hope to post an update here if that date changes as we get closer. I may even be able to offer a sneak peek at the site work in progress next week. The site is starting to come together, but there is still only test content on there and there are inactive links and non-functional features, so it's not quite ready for public viewing. I but I hope to offer loyal blog readers, Twitter followers and Facebook fans an advance look prior to the official launch.

If you have the homepage of Capital Press bookmarked, there will be no need to change that, as the address will be the same after launch. However, subscribers to our electronic newsletter will have to re-register and re-subscribe to continue to get e-mail updates. However, as we advance in our site development, we hope to be able to offer e-newsletter subscribers more newsletter options as far as focus of stories and frequency of updates. Right now we just have one daily newsletter and the option to get periodic (and infrequent) breaking news alerts.

So, keep an eye on the Capital Press website, our blog or our Twitter feed for updates and you may get a link to the test site.

Is that something folks would be interested in seeing? If so, you may be able to be among the first to see the new Capital Press website.
