WE’RE getting new clothes week when sunderlandecho.com relaunches with a new look and improved features.
The website is getting a fresh new design and enhanced navigation to help you access our mix of news, sport and information from Sunderland and the surrounding area.
Some new features include:
>A “What’s On” section with entertainments news and reviews.
>A “Picks of the Day” slot on every article and the home page, so you don’t miss our best stories.
>A better video player for our multimedia content.
>Live coverage of SAFC and Durham cricket.
>Improved display for tweets, offers and services.
>Better contact information if you want to get in touch with the Echo team.
The new features will only be available on the desktop version of the site at first, but there will be further enhancements to the digital experience for users of sunderlandecho.com – across web and mobile – in the coming months.
All your favourite content will still be available, and hopefully easier to access as a result of the changes we’ve made.
The improvements have been made in response to feedback from our users – so thanks if you took part in our research.
We’ll be asking for your views again when we relaunch early next week.
