Rickie Traeger Blog: Rockford Scanner Website Maintenance, Hoping For Snow, Etc…





November 28th

National French Toast Day
National Day of Giving – #GivingTuesday – Tuesday following Thanksgiving


Well I hoped everyone was able to get out and enjoy the weather recently. It is about to get cold according to the weatherman.  I personally hope it snows, and I know many are probably hating me now for saying that, LOL


I plan on  redesigning some of the Rockford Scanner website later on tonight. When the slow time hits, prob overnight sometime.  I am going to work on the menu at the top, and make it more of a drop down option for it. It will make it look better, be faster load times. I personally do not believe it will be user friendly, but many think it will. So I will do it.  I should hope to have that done later on tonight sometime, more than likely overnight sometime.

I did change out the font size and made things bigger on there as well.  People were asking if I could do that. I made it 4 points bigger.  I am awaiting to hear feedback on it, to see if it should go any bigger.

I also redesigned the “Listen to the police scanner” page. 

Be sure to check that out and bookmark that page! 

Listen to the police scanner live on our website.  Check it out!

Also I will be doing routine maintenance on the website tonight as well.  


The van battery died last night, so I had to change that out today.  Talk about a headache!  The engine compartment is small, so it was a pain to work in.  But when it is all said and done, everything is back to normal. I should go knock on some wood now, lol.
