Independent community newspaper publishers who have been waiting for a full web solution to take them online or to the next stage online will be pleased to hear that the Ontario Community Newspapers Association has developed a web site template to do just that.
As the corporately-owned community newspaper groups have developed their own sophisticated and fully-function solutions, this web site template has been designed with our independently-owned newspapers in mind. Many of them have expressed their concern that they did not have the expertise on staff to tackle a project like this on their own, so it was easier to do little or nothing at all.
This affordable, user-friendly and turnkey solution is available through the Ontario Community Newspapers Association. It's a system that the group of users can share and grow together with as future enhancements will be available for all. The association acknowledges the financial support from Collective Initiatives Fund at the Department of Canadian Heritage for this project.
