Welcome to the new USPCS website! This is the result of the survey we took early last year and many, many months of design and implementation. We reviewed several visual themes and navigation schemes to come up with what we feel is a much more attractive and dynamic site and one that will more easily enable you to find what you are looking for…
Key aspects of the new site:
At the top is a brown band which contains easy and direct access to the great majority of content on the site. For example, if you hover over “Society” with your cursor, you will see sub-sections which required two or more clicks on the old website to reach. Hover over “Resources” or “Stamps & Covers”, and you will quickly recognize how vast an amount of content is on the site. I suspect that many of you will find information you did not know existed. Hover over “Members” and you will be able to log in. If you have gone beyond the home page without logging in, you can do that on any page just by scrolling down to the bottom.
Below that navigation band, you will see a “slider” which shows a number of philatelic gems provided by board members and others. These will change over time. You can click on a link in the text at the left to learn more about the material shown. By putting great material there, it will certainly make the home page more attractive. More importantly, it will draw both members and non-members to delve further into the site and recognize the wealth of information the US Philatelic Classics Society has to offer.
Below that, you will see several News items. These will change as necessary to keep you up-to-date on what is going on in the Society. Some have more information than can be put on the home page and that is accessible through the embedded link. You can also reach the News section by hovering over “Society” at the top and clicking on the News subsection of interest.
We hope you enjoy the new website and the very large amount of work that went into it, and is still ongoing.
