‘Florida By Water’ website gets a refit

The creators of the website Florida By Water announced a new and improved version of the site.

“During the process we felt it was important to keep the look and feel as close to the original as possible. Most content on the site can be easily located in three clicks or less,” a press release says in announcing the change.

Among the major changes:

Mobile Detection: When the site is opened on a smartphone, the mobile version of the site will automatically load.

Readability: In response to occasional complaints that the light blue text on the dark background was difficult to read, so the site now uses white text on a dark background. Furthermore, the site has been enhanced to work with retina displays.

Smart Search: The search function now creates an easy to read drop-down with your search results.

Social Media: All social media links are in an easy to find location.

Enhanced Comment Section: The comment section is now much easier to use and to read.

New images: Outstanding images of boating in Florida have been added.

Events: The events listed in Florida by Water now link to Google Maps to give precise directions.
