True Blue is HERE - Version 3.0 Launches!

It's finally here.

Pacific Northwest Portal Version 3.0 has been completed and launched.

It's a huge step forward into a new era of our history.

It took us weeks and weeks, but we're finally satisfied - for the most part. While there a couple small issues that still need to be worked out, we've decided it's time to hand over the new site to you for your enjoyment.

The new Pacific Northwest Portal is sleeker, faster, and more reliable. It has more information than ever before, but yet it's better organized so that you can quickly find and access it.

Highlights of our relaunch? For starters, how about our new syndicate members? We're welcoming eight new blogs to the syndicate.

Two of these blogs are replacing other blogs that are leaving the syndicate - and we're adding another six to the mix as well.

But it's not just the syndicate, either. Our blogs & websites directory now stands at an impressive 156 progressive blogs - including syndicate members and an additional one hundred and twenty six individual, unique, and independent voices.

The site feels different, too. The design, especially the new header bar at the top of all our pages, is edgier and cleaner. It's softer and more user-friendly.

There's new pages too - including the very useful Democratic Party directory and the utility that quickly allows you to make the Portal's front page your start page.

For the whole scoop, see the overview.

Version 3.0 started with your feedback. This relaunch is all about delivering a better website. We're striving to live up to our mission of providing you with the latest political news and giving you easy access to the unique, independent viewpoints that characterize our region.

We want you to tell us what you think. What do you think of the changes? How can we improve even more and serve you better? Let us hear from you.
