The Official Online Weekly Newspaper of NAHB
Welcome to the redesigned, newly branded and even more user-friendly version of NAHB’s online newspaper, Nation’s Building News. The bright new look and feel of this publication — featuring the new NAHB brand and logo — represent the new format that many of NAHB's other e-newsletters and reports will be taking on in the near future.
In addition to its new look, several features have been added to make Nation’s Building News easier to read and easier to navigate.
One of the most noticeable new features is that the stories now appear on a wider screen area. In addition, readers now have the ability to increase the type size of each story by using the Font Size tool above each story for even easier readability.
To accommodate the wider reading area, readers can now search for stories of interest in three locations on each page — the table of contents, which is now below each story; the Choose a Section dropdown menu in the right hand column; and in the Related Articles table of contents just below the Choose a Section dropdown menu.
As in the previous version, the table of contents is color-coded for each section to help make finding stories of a particular interest easier to find. When using the Choose a Section, scrolling over each section name in the dropdown reveals the headlines for the stories in each section. The Related Articles content menu, like in the previous version of NBN, allows readers to glance or click on headlines in the section they are reading, but this time, the navigation is in the right-hand column, rather than above the story.
Nation’s Building News also now includes opportunities for readers to share stories that appear in each issue, along with their comments, with their employees and associates, and to send comments to NAHB as well.
All of these new features should make your reading experience that much more enjoyable, informative and worthwhile.
But don't take our word for it — see for yourself. And after you've finished reading this issue, please let us know what you think about the new format in terms of its usability, readability and design by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
Thank you and we hope you enjoy the new Nation's Building News.
