As we work to put the final touches on the first redesign of the CALI website in over 5 years we want to make sure that everything works and that all of the features you count on are working properly. Over the course of this week it became apparent that everything wouldn’t be ready in time to launch the new website on June 2 & 3 as planned. Rather than going ahead with a site that we knew wasn’t quite ready we made the difficult decision to push back the launch of the redesigned website to June 11 & 12, 2014.
We know that this change may conflict with plans some of you made based on our previous announcement for the new site and we apologize for any inconvenience the delay may cause. We are committed to minimizing interruptions to the web services we provide and we feel that this delay will result in the launch of a website that provides better access to CALI resources.
Early next week we’ll have more details about projected website downtime during the launch window on June 12 and we’ll update this page with those details. Below is the original announcement about the new website launch edited to reflect the delay. Please note that all of the features mentioned below will be available when the new design launches on June 12.
The wait is almost over….CALI will be revealing a new design to our website on Thursday, June 12, 2014.
It’s more than just a facelift, although we think the new design is rather pretty. (Check out the screenshots below for a sneak peek.) There are going to be some great new features with the website, including:
- Cleaner interface for easier navigation
- Tighter search function that incorporates more CALI resources
- A responsive design so it looks great on mobile devices
- New and improved FAQs
- Same URLs for Lessons and other resources
and much, much more! Full tours and explanations will be available after launch. And no, you WILL NOT have to register on the new site. Your current username and password will still work and all personal Lesson data will be available on the new site.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
The CALI website will be offline and unavailable for some time on Thursday, June 12. There will be no ability to register, run lessons, login, or anything. No CALI website on June 2. None. Have I said that date enough? Let’s do it one more time….There will be no CALI website available on Thursday June 12 because we’re going to be putting up the new site. We’ll put a progress page up at www.cali.org for the day to keep you up to date.
So, drum-roll please….here’s your sneak peak. We’re still doing the final zhoozzing, but this will give you an idea of what to expect on June 13. Because remember…no CALI website on Thursday June 12.
Thank you for your patience during this time. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
