SJ Web site gets new look

SEYMOUR JOHNSON AFB, N.C. -- If you haven't seen it yet, you will. The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base's public Web site has a new look.

It has taken on characteristics of the Air Force's main page, and it's filled with local, Air Combat Command, and Air Force news and information.

According to Air Force Instruction 35-101, public Web sites exist as part of the Air Force's overall public communications program, increase public trust and support, contribute to Airmen morale and readiness, and enhance global influence and deterrence.
In the very near future, all Air Force individual public Web sites will migrate to an extension of the Air Force's public website, which is a result of the Air Force finding numerous violations in its public sites -- many of which do not conform to AF policy.

The SJ Web site is centrally hosted, using the Air Force Public Information Management System (AFPIMS) to publish content, and it uses forward caching to improve performance and security.

"Even though we had an outstanding, informative Web site, it was inconsistent with other AF sites and vulnerable to hacking. It was best we migrated to this new system now," said Maj. Linda Haseloff, 4th Fighter Wing Public Affairs chief.

The new website was launched Aug 18 and is now available to the public.
"The new 4th FW public Web site is a welcomed change as it now has been standardized with all other USAF bases world wide," said Col. Russell Walden, 4th Mission Support Group commander. "Additionally, the Seymour Johnson links area on the home page allows quick access to those important areas affecting the 4th FW Airmen and civilians, and the Wayne County and Goldsboro Community," he added.

The Air Force News agency, ACC and the SJAFB Public Affairs office have been working diligently since July gathering information, training and designing the site before the Aug. 18 debut.

"The site now has a standardized web presence, appearance, improved security and performance," Maj. Haseloff said.

According to ACC, the standardized Web publishing tool is for all public web content managers eliminating the requirement for web-developing expertise, which allows content managers to focus on content, security and policy review.

"The process is simple, which means, all updates are done locally here in the PA office. This makes us the one-stop shop for public web content."
