Today the Evening Times launched 12 new local community sites for areas of Glasgow. The sites are based on the “s1local” platform I developed last year. The first sites based on the s1local launched in December under the s1 brand, so we had to build in some customisations to allow the Evening Times to launch sites under their own brand.
I’m sure you can expect to see more community sites launched across Scotland in the coming months, both Evening Times branded ones in Glasgow and s1 branded sites elsewhere.
Next Monday (10th March) I’ll be handing over ownership of the local sites to our newest Web Producer, Graeme Smith. I’m sure his team will extend the s1local platform and provide a lot of exciting new features over the coming months.
Please take a look at the new Evening Times sites, and if you live in one of these commuities, join in: Shawlands; Hillhead; Maryhill; Gorbals; Cardonald; Easterhouse; Partick; Robroyston; Whiteinch; Springburn; Dennistoun; Tollcross.
