Strange Things are Afoot at the CCO

Stop! If you’re looking for ChicagoCubsOnline you are in the right place and if you’re not, well maybe you’ll stay around for a while and check us out. Welcome to the new and hopefully improved ChicagoCubsOnline, it’s the same CCO with a different look and a few new features.

Without boring you guys with too many details, this has been a long time coming. For the first time since 2008 and for only the third time in nearly eight years, the CCO has received a total overhaul.

There were not any changes in the basic function of the site. There will be more additions and subtractions in the coming days and weeks but the site as a whole should not be any different for our readers. The color of hyper-linked articles has changed from red to blue. So if you would like to read the full report that was used as a source, click on the blue text. We have kept Disqus as the commenting system and the old comments should sync up with the archived articles over the next 48-72 hours.

If anyone sees any errors or has any questions or problems with the new format, please do not hesitate to email [email protected]

I appreciate everyone’s patience during this change over. I really feel in the long run this is the best move for the site.

Eamus Catuli!

  • Dorasaga

    Neil, will there be an “archive” where we can find the old Community Blog that became defunct two years ago? It’ll take me time to walk through the site and see if most features work on my firefox.

    • Neil

      I plan on moving the archives from the old Community Blog once the bugs on this side are fixed.

    • Neil

      For now, the Community Blog archives are under the CCO tab. It will be moved into a different format soon. But for now it is there.

    Hello from Fort Myers, FL. The site looks great, Neil. I appreciate all that you do.Just as the Cubs will have a new look for 2013 so the CCO will have a new look. Again, I will leave the warmth and sun of Florida to go to my umpteenth Cubs Convention in January. I will have my usual seat next to the visitors dugout when the Daytona Cubs come to Fort Myers to play the Fort Myers Miracle (Twins). Go Cubs!!! In the words of the late Ron Santo, “This is the year”. BTW , This is Chuck D.

    Great work Neil, just add my kudos to everyone else. You do such a great job, I know how much work it is. We may have a crap team, but our CCO blog is pure class.

  • John_CC

    Wow, looks great Neil. Like the feed and comments on the right side. Very clean, very nice.

    • Neil

      Thanks John, the comments on the side will likely change, still working on that. Waiting for Disqus to filter through first.

  • xaxinho

  • MikeT_2008

    Site looks really good Neil, also I’m not sure if it is a new feature or I just have missed it all this time but I really like the 40 man roster and contract tab at the top. Keep up all the great work.

  • Matt Weaver
