New version of ARLnow website coming soon

If you’ve gotten used to the current design of the ARLnow website over the past 5+ years, get ready for an adjustment.

A new version of the site will be rolling out soon, perhaps as soon as early Monday morning. Developed by news publisher-focused WordPress agency The Code Company, the site represents a complete rebuild of our current codebase, which dates back to the early 2010s.

The overall design will be similar, but you might notice some differences. For one, blurbs on the homepage will be shorter. And we’ll start incorporating short looping video into articles, something that’s not feasible on our current site.

We encourage readers to provide feedback on the new site after its release and to point out any possible bugs. You can do so in the comments or by emailing us.
