Rancho Santa Fe Record Web site now online

The Rancho Santa Fe Record launched its new Web site on Thursday, Oct. 16.

The new site, which has a Web address of www.rsfrecord.com, boasts video and photo galleries, fully searchable online classifieds, and lots of breaking news.

Rancho Santa Fe Record Publisher Phyllis Pfeiffer said her intention in creating the site is to have a news source that offers daily updates and plenty of interactive options for Rancho Santa Fe.

“We are making this a usable and interactive site that Rancho Santa Fe residents will find value in visiting. It will be a big plus for our readers. It will give us a dynamic venue to share news, photos and video with the community, and it will offer first-rate opportunities for our advertisers to reach an expanded market,” said Pfeiffer.

Make it your destination for Rancho Santa Fe events and community information, she added.

The site also features comments at the end of stories with “red phone” and “green phone” options that allow readers to blog to the editorial staff.

The red phone is for local news issues and the green phone is for local sports. These online “phone” options allow readers to have a chance to post comments online and get answers to what’s on their minds.

Also, the Rancho Santa Fe Record is now using Legacy.com searchable obituaries, with an option to leave loved one’s “guest book” entries.

The Rancho Santa Fe Record hired Amy Lynne Bowes to oversee the design in a newly created online content manager position.

“I’m excited to bring Rancho Santa Fe residents a complete Web site with up-to-date daily news,” Bowes said. “Also, the comments section after the stories creates a great place for community dialogue.”

She added that the site includes great ways to submit news items and is fully interactive.
