It is hard to imagine that azfamily.com and its fellow Belo station websites have been operating on what most web geeks would consider an archaic content management system, but that has been the case.

Finally enter the much anticipated and long talked about new content management system, Clickability.

Many of you out there are just loyal visitors to azfamily.com and don't see what goes on behind the stories you read on the site and the video you watch so knowing how we publish those stories isn't very interesting to you. What you want to know about is how having this new content management system is going to change the way you see and use azfamily.com.

Well most apparently you will notice a new layout across the whole site. Don't worry though you can still find all of the stories and content the old site provided, I would just say now it comes in a sleeker package.

To go over some of the improvements you will see: the search is much improved; the flash video player inside the stories is much larger and has a much better picture quality the viewer submitted content (now called You News) has a lot more functionality for our Mobile Journalists to contribute news stories they come across in their neighborhoods; connect directly with the people of 3TV on Twitter; easier ways to share stories across the web, via e-mail, etc.; a single log on to interact with the sites; and more features, better coverage on azfamily.com mobile.

And those are just the highlights!

Plus we will be able to improve on the features of azfamily.com that you have come to know and love - breaking news; live streaming video; exclusive interviews; uncut clips.

Search around, play around, interact with the improved azfamily.com and let me know what you think.

We've been working hard to get the revamped site ready to show to you all and now is your turn to let us know what you think.

Feel free to e-mail me at natsnews@azfamily.com or connect with me on Twitter @natsnews with all of your feedback (good and bad).
