Rockford Scanner™: Editorial: Rockford Scanner Website Redesigned, What Do You Think Of It?


As you probably have noticed by now, we have redesigned the Rockford Scanner website. 

We have listened to the feedback from our fans, and redesigned it to how many were wanting it. 


We were going to redesign the website later on down the road, but we ended up doing it overnight. 

There is one downfall, I forgot to back the content up. So when I redesigned it, I lost all the articles and content. 

So if you were searching for an older article, it is unfortunately gone. 


Good news though, fresh start. New design. Amazing load speeds. Great for cell phone users! 


We hope everyone enjoys the new design. Let us know what you think of it!
