WakeORIGIN Gets a New Look Just in Time For Wakeboard Season

Posted on April 10th, 2008 by | posted in Announcements

Even though it’s snowing outside right now, it feels like summer is right around the corner and won’t be long until we’ll all be spending time on the water. Over the last week or so, we’ve been doing some spring cleaning to get WakeORIGIN ready for warmer weather and all of the news and excitement that comes with the summer months.

As our regular readers have no doubt noticed, the biggest change we implemented is a new look to the sites layout and a stream-lined navigation scheme. The cleaner layout is a little wider to allow for larger images and easier to read text.

WakeORIGINs New Look

In addition to the new look, we’ve also added some additional features that should make staying on top of the wakeboard industry easier.

  • Email Article Features: Located at the bottom of each post is a green button and a link that says “Share This”. Simply click on the button or link and a form will show up allowing you to enter the email address you wish to send the article to.
  • New Article Notifications: Stay up-to-date on the latest wakeboarding news by subscribing to our RSS feed in your favorite news reader, or sign up to receive a daily email digest in your inbox.

We also have a number of other changes and feature enhancements that we’ll be announcing in the near future. Our goal is to create the most user friendly website possible to make it easier for wakeboarders to get the latest news and media in the wakeboard industry.

Stay tuned for more announcements about new features coming soon, and if you have feedback about what we can do to make WakeORIGIN better, let us know in the comments.
