We’re always working on ways to make Love Small Town America more responsive to our members’ needs and more engaging. That’s why we’re excited to announce a few changes coming soon that we think will make our members’ webpages even more fun and useful! Which of these ideas do you like the best? Let us know in the comments!
- Social Media Share : We’ve harped on how important social media is before. Now, it will be easier than ever to share content from Love Small Town America through social media. We’re adding a “social media bar” to every page so people can easily share the news from those pages.
- Google Calendar : We are transferring our current calendar system to Google Calendar. This will make updates easier and will allow people to sync their Google Calendars with ours. This will also allow us to integrate RSS feeds on the calendar pages so people are updated when events have been added or changed. Let that sink in for a moment. This means if you follow the calendar of your son’s school sports team, if they change the time of a basketball game — it will be updated on your personal calendar!
- Pop-up Boxes : For the events calendar and business listings, we’re adding pop-up boxes to share more information for those events and business listings. It will be easy to find the phone number of a local business, for example, or see at a glance important details about a church bake sale.
