Note from the Editor
As I mentioned last issue, our website has been undergoing a complete redesign and, for the most part, the new changes are online and fully functional.
One noticeable feature on the new site is the much improved online version of the bi-monthly magazine. You can still download the pdf file of the entire magazine for your offline reading, but the new website interface allows you to browse the pages much smoother than before.
The new Suppliers Directory database is also updated for buyers to take full advantage of the search function. This feature will be given an even better upgrade in the coming months to include a more powerful and intuitive method for customers to find your products. A search engine optimization overhaul will bring in an even larger number of potential buyers ... good for us and good for all our advertisers who are listed in the Directory!
We’re proud of how the site is tuning out, and we welcome you to point your browsers to www.wireropenews.com and check it out!
