Introducing a new Outer Banks Voice for every device

By on September 16, 2013


The site formats itself for cellphones and tablets.

The Outer Banks Voice has a new look.

Since we went online in 2010, readers have told us that one of the best features of the Voice is a design that is clean and easy to navigate.

Our updated design, we believe, builds on that reputation.

The format, however, is more than window dressing. It automatically configures for any device. So you won’t have to download apps to read the Voice on your smart phone or tablet.

On laptops and desktops, the Voice will look less cramped and cluttered, with a wider, expandable format that provides more room for stories and photos.

We’d like to thank all of our readers and advertisers, who have helped us grow much bigger than we would ever have imagined back in the winter of 2010.

On Monday night, we were approaching 10 million page views – 9,956,098! We’ve been honored with 16,737 “likes” on Facebook.

We’re excited to be embarking on this new chapter of the Voice and promise to do our best to bring you the latest news every day.

The work was done by Dabney Morris, who also designed the original website.

Love the new phone friendly format, though I’m a bit disappointed of the return to the “only registered users can post comments”. Granted, there’s more control of flaming, but only a fraction of people ever bother to make an account just to post a comment, which puts a large dent in the interaction on this site. Reading people’s comments on topics is one of the biggest reasons I visit this site.

Salvo — We’ll be fixing that by the end of the day. Thanks for letting us know.

One thing I notice about the new format, at least with Internet Explorer, is that the page up/down arrows periodically go away as the page apparently is auto refreshing. A bit annoying to have to wait to page up/down, but no biggy.
