CoinNews Site Enhancements

by Mike Unser on December 18, 2007 · 0 comments

CoinNews has implemented several site enhancements since Sunday, Dec. 16. To point those out as well as coming changes, here is a short listing of things you may want to know:

  1. We recently announced the launch of the beta CoinNews mobility site. Since, we’ve stopped accepting new beta applications to help test it, but don’t worry – if you’re interested in coin news straight from your cell phone, you can begin using the released site January 3.

  2. On the CoinNews homepage, we’ve added the following new section breakouts:
    • Coin News Favorites
    • Video & RSS News
    • Coin Collector Tools – Calculators, Spots & Guides
    • Numismatic Releases

    The improvements were made to make some – not all – of the more popular areas of CoinNews more visible and easier to find. Several more changes are still planned in this area but there won’t be learning curves in using them.

  3. The News Extra area is currently undergoing significant changes. This page of the CoinNews site hosts RSS numismatic feeds, which pulls news headlines and their brief descriptions from other organizations. The old implementation took too long to load and many times wasn’t focused like it should have been. We’ve corrected the speed problem and are now enhancing the content itself. Expect further changes in the next few days.

As always, if you have suggestions for us, please let us know through our Contact page.

Thank you,
