PaulMcCartney.com – Now We Are New!
Hello and welcome to the updated PaulMcCartney.com,
Last week we told you of improvements coming to the website. We are pleased to say we have now taken that first step.
The biggest improvement is the change of the technology running PaulMcCartney.com. A good way of thinking about this is to imagine replacing the engine in a car; it's still the same vehicle, but it now runs a lot smoother. The update includes adding responsive design to the website, meaning it will now adjust itself automatically to display in the best possible way for the device you are using to browse the internet.
But that's not the only improvement. We have also begun refreshing how the website looks. Below is a short description of some of the bigger changes you will notice on PaulMcCartney.com. We appreciate that reading through long pieces of text is not always the most interesting way to spend your day, so each point is illustrated with a short video.
The new music player allows you to listen to Paul’s music uninterrupted as you browse. We have added a new recording of ‘New’ from Paul’s visit to the Tokyo Dome last November as a bonus track. We will be adding more interesting audio to the player so remember to keep checking back!
Here’s how to use the music player:
One of the biggest tasks we set ourselves with the update was to make it easier for Paul’s fans to rediscover exciting stories from his past.
We therefore decided to build an ‘On This Day’ calendar along the bottom of the front page. On there you will find news stories reaching back to 2005, plus album release and touring details from the whole of Paul’s post-Beatles career.
In the coming months we will be adding all kinds of information and fun facts from Paul’s history to the calendar.
Here’s a quick guide on how to use it:
One of the coolest things about the Internet is how easy it is to share your interests, and recommendations from friends are how we come across many of our favourite websites.
With this in mind we wanted to make sharing content from Paul’s website easier.
