The National Council Boy Scouts of America has released a new verison of Scouting.org.
This new design is the beginning of phase two of the BSA leveraging Sitecore’s web CMS for its nationwide brand management.
The new site design that features the 100th anniversary of Scouting and 100 reasons to join Scouting was made public yesterday. The site design works to group information by categories and provide relivant information depending on if you are a Youth, Parent, Volunteer, or Visitor. They have also provided a special landing page called ScoutSource to provide a one-stop shop for all of the resources available to assist you in your Scouting efforts.
The website is powered by SiteCore CMS which, according to prior reports, will power all 40 National Council Websites and eventually local Council websites as well.

The National Council of the Boy Scouts of America has updated their website with a new look.
The new design is a fresh clean look for the National website that features a new behind the scenes publishing platform. Visitors will see the benefits in enhanced navigation and search, e-mail and subscription services for every page, and a consistent look and feel throughout the site.
The biggest change to Scouting.org will appear in the way that URL’s are handled. For example, the URL for the Boy Scouts program on Scouting.org has previously looked something like “http://www.scouting.org/nav/enter.jsp?s=by” whereas the new URL for the Boy Scouts program will be “http://www.scouting.org/boyscouts.aspx”. This new URL handling system will provide more intuitive URL’s and make it easier for councils and others to provide links back to Scouting.org.
What do you think of the new design?
