Check out our new look

We've had some work done.

Times are changing at Castanet, and we're growing to serve you better.

We've rolled out a new look in a soft launch running side by side with the current site. Click here to check it out, or on the Sneak Peek ad spot at the top of our front page.

Along with a second office in Vernon and an accompanying geotargeted Vernon edition of the website, we've completely overhauled the look and functionality of the site – from a simplified and reorganized classifieds section and smart search function, to a clean, uncluttered look with softer edges that's more inviting and easier on the eyes.

The overall design is evolutionary rather than revolutionary. But, behind the scenes, literally hundreds of changes have been made to make the site easier to navigate and more intuitive.

Many of the changes are subtle, such as raised profile for features like our Question of the Day and Letters, or separate pages for B.C., Canada and world news. Others are more obvious, such as the cleaner design and font changes.

User experience is key, as evidenced in much-improved interfaces for our reader photo gallery and events page.
