EXPECT GAPS AND GLITCHES! — If this were a stretch of road that was being totally redone, we’d say something like, “Travel at your Own Risk.” But since we’re rebuilding a website rather than repairing a slab of macadam, maybe “Expect Gaps and Glitches” is more appropriate. Here’s what’s been going on:
► The Communications Committee has wanted for some time to change both the web host and the content management system for the Town of Hawley website.
► The project to do so has been underway for the past eight months or so.
► For a while, we were running the two websites in parallel — the new one only accessible to Committee members.
► This meant we had to duplicate every web page on both websites, including all updates. This was an easy-enough, but time-consuming, task.
► Now that the transition is largely done, we hope you like the new look and feel.
► You’ll notice that some things are virtually the same as on the old site — and that there are some new features as well.
► Some of these new features aren’t done or don’t work properly, yet. Now that the site has been stabilized on its new host, those are the items we’ll work on next.
► If you see something that needs fixing, please let us know HERE.
AS ALWAYS, your patience is appreciated.
— Town of Hawley Communications Committee
