The Inside The Arts platform upgrade is almost entirely complete. Over the weekend, the redesigned Inside The Arts homepage was launched along with redesigned versions of non divisi and Scanning The Dial. Sticks and Drones as well as the Inside The Arts Podcasts will be completed in a few days and the all new Adaptistration will be launched by the end of September to coincide with the 2009 Orchestra Website Reviews. All of the redesigned blogs have enhanced usability and the Inside The Arts homepage now features an RSS feed for each week’s Noteworthy and Popular articles. Not only does the enhanced platform offer all of the same features, such as the Gig After Gas Online Calculator, but starting in October Inside The Arts will begin to feature mini-blogs. Although the Inside The Arts URL hasn’t changed, make sure to update your bookmarks and RSS Feeds for Arts Addict, non divisi, Scanning The Dial, and Sticks and Drones. The remaining resident blogs (Adaptistration, Brian Dickie, Butts In The Seats, and Neo Classical) will remain on their respective servers so no need to update your records.
