To better serve our readers.
In the years since we last redesigned LakeWyliePilot.com, we have added more features and put an emphasis on regularly updating news stories throughout the day. We want this new design to be easier for you to read, better organized for this additional content and display breaking news and features more prominently on our home page. Other content has been reorganized under a new tab navigational structure to make everything easier to find.
In addition, we've added a number of ways you can comment about the latest news going on in the Lake Wylie area: you can comment directly on any story, you can recommend stories or e-mail stories to others, and you can link stories to various sites like Digg.
Please e-mail email@example.com to report any problems.
We've simplified finding the sections, with the most popular sections featured in tabs across the top of the page. Simply mouse over a tab to browse what's listed in that section and click on a tab to go to that section. Can't find a story on a particular topic? There's a search engine on the top of each section page.
The first time you try logging into the new site, your computer may experience a slow connection because it’s still trying to find the old site’s information. You’ll want to clear your web browser’s cache. Click here to find out how to do this for your browser.
