Site Enhancements

Happy new year!

We’re back in the office and ready to get going on 2010.

Over the holidays, we’ve added a couple of features to the PCD&F website.

First, we now list Products on our nav bar as a way to help readers more easily navigate that important section. Check it out here.

Second, we’ve added a “rate this” function to our magazine articles. Now, once you’re done reading, you can provide us with instant feedback on the value of the piece. This will help us assess what articles and authors readers find most useful.

Coming next: A comments section at the end of each article and news item. This will allow readers to express their opinions and thoughts in a more in-depth manner, and hopefully will stimulate valuable discussion and ideas for future articles.

As always, we welcome your feedback.
