The Federal Communications Commission added new features and enhancements to its website, FCC.gov.
“Beyond revising the home page and enhancing its navigation options, you will find a number of other improvements throughout the site,” wrote FCC Managing Director David Robbins in a blog post. “These include making it easier to find content through an improved Topic Browser for navigating the Our Work pages and via an updated featured-results engine for visitors using the ever-present site search.”
Robbins described the changes to the site as well:
- Better use of home page “real estate,” providing quicker access to a greater variety of FCC materials, resources and events. Regular visitors will notice a more compact design, allowing for immediate access to a wider range of content at the top of the page.
- An enhanced Newsroom section of the home page, with more headlines and event listings.
- An expanded sitewide navigation bar featuring direct access to FCC Bureau and Office pages, MyFCC, and to the legacy ‘Transition.FCC.gov,’ useful for accessing older FCC materials until the migration to the new website is complete.
- A new “Maps and Data” section on the home page, highlighting the cutting-edge work by our Maps team and ongoing data initiatives.
The FCC redesigned the website last spring and recently launched MyFCC, a dashboard that allows users to customize their FCC.gov experience.
