NewsChannel 5 launches new website design on WPTV.com

Welcome to the all-new WPTV.com! South Florida's top TV-station news and information website is proud to introduce new features and a fresh new design.

The moment you arrive at our homepage, you’ll see easier-to-use, dynamic menus that direct you to the news and weather you’re looking for.  We’ve improved the images, in size and quality, you see throughout the site.  Videos are easier to find; in fact, you can just scroll down the homepage to see our latest videos showcased together.

The biggest change to our site lies under the hood, but it shows itself every time you visit us.  The new WPTV.com is built on “responsive design,” a leading-edge technology that ensures our website will display optimally on any device you use – a computer, tablet or smartphone.  Try it!  On a desktop computer, you’ll see three columns of content.  On a smaller tablet screen, the stories, photos and videos are rearranged into two columns.  And on a smartphone, even without an app, you get the same content, stacked in a single, easy-to-read and easy-to-scroll column.

The weather section gives you what you want and gives it to you immediately with the current conditions, the seven-day and hourly forecasts and the complete forecast right at the top of the page. The customizable VIPIR 5 weather, charts and graphs that offer more depth are all there as well.

Traffic gives you just what you want as well – up-to-the-minute traffic conditions displayed on an interactive map that will give you all the details.

You can still easily find our most-popular sections like Contact 5 Investigations, Consumer Watchdog stories, Don't Waste Your Money, VIPIR 5 Radar and photo galleries.

Sudoku and Crossword are under the Life tab - mouse over Sections, then mouse over Life, and look at the list.

One thing, however, that’s not changing is the quality of our coverage.  Since we launched the site in 1998, WPTV.com has been Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast's trusted source of news and weather online, on our mobile apps and on social media, just as NewsChannel 5 brings you Local Coverage You Can Count On on air every day.

We’d love to hear if you like the new WPTV.com.  Post a comment below, or send us an e-mail at webteam@wptv.com .
