City of Beaufort redesigns website

The new site.

The City of Beaufort has updated its website, aiming to provide an easier-to-navigate experience with better information.

The Island Packet writes a bit about the what and whys, but you can see the new site for yourself over at:

Unfortunately, the new site does not handle many existing links and bookmarks, like those to the city's council members listing. These are now broken (new link, old link) requiring that inbound visitors must often back out to the homepage and drill down for the information again. Additionally the city's new website offers no search box or link back to the homepage upon hitting the error document, potentially leaving less savvy users to believe the webpage is simply down.

A beautiful thing about websites, though, is that problems such as these can be fixed and resolved, let's hop the city soon irons out these kinks.
