It's been a while since the OzLeisure.com.au website underwent a make-over, and it has been due for a while now. Over the past couple of months, the team here have been hard at work preparing something
totally new, clean and fresh for you to use. The new site design encapsulates the new "web 2.0" design principles that many of you will be aware are sweeping the web right now, and these make the site much easier to use.
That the main purpose of the change though - to make it easier for you to use, and to provide you with more functionality when searching and browsing for your ideal activities.
One of the main things you will notice with the new site design is maps ... they are everywhere, and all completely interactive. You will never be left wishing you knew where an
activity was again.
There are far too many new features to list them all here, but below are a few highlights for you:
Remember, it is coming to a web browser near you on 1st September 2007. Be sure to check it out.
- Clean, fresh new design
- Improved searching and results display
- On-site media viewer with additional media types available
- Improved navigation around activity listings
- No more classified listings - all items now show a page of details
- Searching by map
- Driving directions to all activities, events, exhibitions and artists from anyway in the country
- Much, much more ...
In response to your feedback, the new website version includes an "Artists lounge", a place were artists can display their works for all to see. Artworks can be images, videos, audio or written word.
Registration to upload items to the site is required but it is completely free, and there is no limit to the amount of artwork that can be displayed. Also, there is a section for artists to tell you about
their upcoming exhibitions.
All items are searchable and can be viewed online. There are also driving directions to the artists studio so you can visit should you wish to.
So, if you are an artist yourself and would like to display your work to thousands of visitors, or you know artists that would like to, why not have them look at the new website
once it is revealled on 1st September 2007.
