Website changes coming to The Burgs on Thursday
If all goes well (and we hope it does), on Thursday afternoon we’ll change the software behind The Burgs. (For you tech geeks, we’re moving from WordPress to Blox.)
Readers shouldn’t notice much of a change (we’ve changed it before) except in two areas:
1. Comments will be through Facebook, which means no more anonymous comments. Joe Stinnett, editor of The Roanoke Times, explains this and other changes here.
2. We’ll no longer need to post links to New River-related stories that appear on roanoke.com. We’ve had to now because the two sites operate on two different systems and things can only appear in one place. With the new software, both sites will be on the same software so stories can appear in multiple places.
Everything else should remain the same, so if you have news or photos from around the New River Valley, you can still share at firstname.lastname@example.org.
