A New Look For Indymedia Scotland

Indymedia Scotland has this week given itself a makeover by switching the software it uses and drastically altering the layout of the site. At first I wasn’t sure about the layout but having given it a few days and having posted a couple of announcements I can safely say that this new site is a lot easier to use. Whereas before I was never a fan of the interface used for submitting articles, the new version is very similar to most blogging and forum interfaces built as it is on Drupal. This makes it a lot easier to add hypertext links, images and other files.
The new announcements feature is also extremely handy meaning that if you advertise an event it wont disappear off the bottom of the newswire if it’s a busy week. The ticker in the left hand column giving a countdown of upcoming events is a really nice touch.
All in all a massive improvement over the old site and leaps and bounds ahead of all the other Indymedia sites I have seen.
