ARLB004 FCC Retiring the Front Page

The FCC has announced that it is transitioning away from its
so-called "transition website" front page, which has been in place
for the last 3 years. The Commission said the move, starting
February 3, is in line with its plans to gradually wean users from
the transition website.

"All content formerly on the old transition front page - including
links to our most popular tools and resources - is available on the home page, and personal bookmarks to items once featured on
the old page will continue to work," the FCC has said. "Starting
February 3, the transition front page will redirect automatically to
the home page at . For those who
continue to use, please note that this action
affects only one page of the transition site - the front page."

The FCC introduced its new website design in 2011, running it in
parallel with the old design that users had become familiar with
over the many years it's been in place. The FCC said its decision
now to phase out the transition front page was based on a steady
decline in usage, since the initial FCC website redesign.

Also starting February 3, the FCC will replace the transition link
in the top right corner with a link to the FCC Phonebook at, , making that resource
available on virtually every page. The FCC invites feedback
on its website at .
