As many you have already discovered, WRAL.com introduced a new website design today. You can still find all your favorite Smart Shopper blog information, but here are some tips to make it a little easier.
* To find the blog from the main WRAL.com homepage, scroll over the Consumer tab at the top of the page and then click on the Smart Shopper link. You can also scroll about 3/4 down the home page and you will see a Smart Shopper section that you can click on.
* Once you get to the Smart Shopper blog, you will see that the newest posts are still listed at the top of the page. If you click on the post headline/title, it will bring you to the specific post and you can read the information. If you click on the comments bubble under the headline in the blog posts list, it will bring you right to the comments and you will not see the post.
* Once you click on a post, you can see how many comments have been made by the number in the comments bubble on the right side of the post. To read the comments, click on the comments bubble and the comments will appear on the far right side of the page. You can also make comments in the comments box on the right side of the page.
* To see the comments on the larger left side of the blog, click the comments bubble for a specific post on the main Smart Shopper page. Don't click the headline of the post. You actually need to click on the comments bubble that has a number in it. The number equals the number of comments for that specific thread. It will then take you to just the comments for that post (you won't be able to see the original post content) but they will be larger than the comments on the skinnier right side of the page.
* You can also set up an RSS feed by clicking on any headline and then clicking on the square under the printer icon with the dot and 2 curved lines.
Your best bet is to play around with the new site for a few days to get used to it. I have been working with it for a couple months now and I find it to be pretty user-friendly. If you have any questions, just let us know.
