Welcome to the new CDNews!

Welcome to the new Central District News!

As you may have noticed, the site has been limping for a few weeks. Comments have been lost, community posts disappeared and sometimes the site just didn’t load at all. We very much appreciate your patience, and we hope the new site will address these issues and open the door for more innovative features for community news and discussion.

In the transfer to the new platform, some features and archives didn’t make the journey. Namely, the forums, business reviews and classifieds were left behind, at least for now. Nearly all post and comment archives were preserved (though comment nesting was lost).

We have a new community events calendar that does all sorts of cool things (you can now subscribe to events with your personal calendar reading app, like iCal or Google Calendar). However, previously submitted events were lost, so please repost them to let your neighbors know what’s going on.

And yes, anyone can post to CDNews, just like always. Simply log-in and click “Post” on the navigation bar. Posts appear immediately on “Page Two,” and editors bump some posts to the front page at our discretion.

Like always, CDNews depends on you to keep us and your neighbors updated on what’s happening on your street. So please post or email us at [email protected].

We will be working out bugs over the next few days as we get settled into the new digs. If you notice anything strange or need help, feel free to email us or comment below.

  1. Hmmm – one font size smaller might be nice… right now it’s a bit like reading a large type book…. I can zoom out with my browser to make things better and it does actually remember, but it other things shrink too.

  2. Congratulations! It looks great. Thanks for all the hard work and a wonderful community resource.

  3. I am having a hard time logging in. Doesn’t recognize my email or user name/pw, but I can’t re-register as my user name is taken.
