Updated BenitoLink Site to be revealed May 31

BenitoLink moves from Drupal platform to more user friendly WordPress platform May 31.

BenitoLink will have a similar but new look starting this evening, May 31. BenitoLink, San Benito’s online news received donations and grant funding through the Community Foundation for San Benito County to change its website platform and make improvements for our readers. We want to thank the Community Foundation for helping with the cost of this (tedious) but important process.

Work transferring over to the updated design will happen late in the evening and night of May 31.

Community members will be able register on the WordPress site and contribute stories with more ease and more helpful, friendlier instructions. Past users will still be able to use their same username and password.

The improved design will allow for the nonprofit, community supported online news site’s growing team and increase in content.

Please expect less activity on BenitoLink over the weekend of June 1 and June 2 while we tune up the website and make small corrections. There will likely be small changes over the next few weeks while we finish up. Be patient! If you are a registered user and have any difficulty signing in, please let us know and we will help you.

Thank you to David Walsh, Tim Katzgrau and Leslie Noyes at Web Publisher PRO for their help in improving the user experience for our BenitoLink readers and contributors.
