Pardon our virtual dust: Sun launches new website

Our new website offers you an unusual opportunity; you can help shape how our site looks, what it contains and how it is navigated. As we build upon the base before your eyes, you can email the editor at or post a comment below and share your thoughts and suggestions. What do you want that you can’t find? Does the navigation system make sense? What is driving you nuts?

Today, The Walton Sun website,, underwent a massive redesign that ultimately offers more variety, opportunity and local control.

The new site is far from a finished product at the moment, and we expect our website will be a “work in progress” for several weeks as we become proficient in its use.

There will be a period where the archives — a searchable collection of stories that have appeared online during the last four years or so — are not available. They will be added later, a time-consuming process even for one computer talking to another.

Ultimately the change offers a wider range of opportunities for both our online consumers and those of us who put it together — we have more local control over our website than ever and will be able to make changes in hours, not days.

We ask for your patience as we build this new site into the comprehensive source of local news and information for Walton County that you have come to expect.
