If you haven’t clicked on the Review’s website lately, you might want to take a look at the improvements we’ve been making.
We’ve added a “green edition,” which lets you view the entire print version online, page-by-page. Even if you enjoy relaxing
with the paper version, you’ll want to bookmark our page,
www.bainbridgereview.com, to get advance news during the week. Comments to stories are now made on our Facebook page. We encourage civil discourse on the issues that matter to this community. “Like” us, if you haven’t already.
And speaking of community, our online Community Calendar has received a major upgrade. The system is powered by Trumba, the same software used by the Smithsonian, The New York Times, and locally, the Seattle Seahawks – and even closer to home, Kitsap Regional Library. It’s feature-rich and user-friendly. We’ve added a dedicated “Calendar” tab on the menu bar, right after news.
You can view the calendar in a variety of formats; search for specific events, such as all KiDiMu happenings, or filter by category, such as “sports” or “classes and lectures.” A new map feature shows events locations. You can forward information about events to your smart phone or desktop calendar, get updates on changes to specific events, or get a weekly feed sent. You can share events via email, Facebook, Twitter and Linked In.
If you’d like to add an event, you’ll be pleasantly surprised: There’s no need for a password. You can add an image, post recurring events and even spread the news to other Sound papers.
