 Update - Site Redesign
Hello all,

Hot on the heels of my previous announcement comes the next round of changes in our ongoing site redesign process. Specifically:

1) Each Topic and Major Article page in the EG now includes a sharing box in the upper-right section of the page. Using this box you can share the page via a number of social medial sites, currently set at:


One of the nice things about the tool we are using for this is that it allows you to change sharing options as desired. As such, if/when the current crop of options is supplanted by the next generation of popular social media tools, we should be able to adjust things to keep up.

While the sharing tool is currently only available on existing Topic and Major Article pages (major articles are those that include a link in the title that opens up a larger article page), we will be reviewing our current list of Minor Articles (those that display the entire article in the listing of EG entries) and converting many of them to Major status so that they can also support the sharing tool. This will be taking place on an ongoing basis until done. If you have a specific Minor Article that you would like converted ASAP, please use the Contact Us feature or the forum Suggestion Box - Website to request it.

2) The Contact Us button has been added to all the pages in the EG. Clicking the button will take you to our existing Contact Us page, which mostly continues to operate as before. The exception being...

3) A banner link to the OA Forum has been added to the Contact Us page. While the OA community generally doesn't see this, we have found that we receive a fair number of questions or ideas about the setting via the Contact Us feature. The addition of a link to the forum is intended to encourage people to join the OA community and share in the fun.

Ok, that covers things for now. We will continue to report on new additions and changes to the OA project and site as they occur. If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the above, or run into any issues, please don't hesitate to contact us.
