CMN firmly believes our partners should have full design and editorial control over their sites (see related articles below).
Basic framework exists (i.e., ad positions) for sites to build around, but there are no limitations on what can be done within the system beyond that.
We are a resource for best practices and will support newspaper staff on design initiatives that work within the framework of CP5. We encourage our partners to learn and explore the CP5 platform in order to push it to the limits, but we also understand that not every publication has that resource year over year.
CMN has staff designers and developers ready to assist in designing your site. Whether it is a masthead redesign, a home page layout change, or help creating a microsite.
You always have the ability to design and customize your site without our help if you have a staff member who has the technical skills.
Need a helping hand? We're here to point you in the right direction.
