We've updated the engine behind the COPE website which will help users find what they're looking for more quickly. This means greatly improved search functionality, more granular filtering, simplified navigation throughout the site and a refreshed design. This will be the first release in a series to improve the browsing experience.
The decision to embark on this project was in response to our member survey, analysis of website statistics and direct feedback from users of the website. Together this research told us that users find it difficult to search and browse for information, advice and support they are looking for on the website.
The improved website features that you will notice are:
- improved search and filtering
- simplified navigation
- a refreshed design
- a fully responsive website which is easy to use on all screen sizes
- better accessibility
- making the most of the COPE's rich resources
It may take a little bit of getting used to if you've become an expert at using the current layout of the website but we think it will be easier to find what you're looking for more quickly.
We hope you'll find these changes helpful and would like to hear your feedback, to help us continue to build on these foundations.
