The Arkansas Times launched its redesigned website early Saturday morning. We’re still in the process of fine-tuning the new, improved arktimes.com, but in the meantime we’d like to hear from readers. Please let us know what you think in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having trouble navigating the new site? Pages not loading? Thoughts on the design? Things you’d like to see more of (or less of)? If you have questions, complaints, comments or concerns — large or small — drop us a line. Your feedback will help us fix problems and build a better experience for all users.
In this instance, we’re specifically looking for thoughts on the design and functionality of the website — not content. If you have feedback about a particular Arkansas Times story, you can always email our editor, Lindsey Millar, or any of the writers and editors on staff.
Thank you all for your patience as we make this change. A few other notes:
- Comments aren’t functional yet. Please bear with us. A new and improved commenting system should be up and running in the coming days.
- The search function should improve in the coming days.
- Our News and Entertainment landing pages will change substantially soon, and it’ll be much easier for you to find, for instance, archived opinion pieces from the likes of Ernie Dumas and Gene Lyons.
- Our curated To-Do List of local events is still under construction. We’re excited to debut a new look for this feature very soon.
- Many regular Arkansas Blog readers may have bookmarked the blog landing page (arktimes.com/arkansas-blog) rather than our home page, arktimes.com. We suggest everyone explore the larger site beyond the Arkansas Blog. It includes feature stories from our monthly magazine; Rock Candy (our arts and entertainment blog); Eat Arkansas (our food and dining blog); and more.
- Finally, a huge shoutout to Jordan Little, our director of digital strategy, who’s been working nonstop for weeks to get the new arktimes.com off the ground despite a monumental number of unforeseen obstacles. We’d never have gotten to this point without Jordan, and all of us at the Arkansas Times are incredibly grateful to have him on the team.
