Explore Rosamond stands with the Black Community against injustice & inequality, always has and always will.

Products have landed

Using an outside print on demand vendor, CafePress, Explore Rosamond is developing a series of branded products which will allow you to show off your love for the area, as well as supporting Explore Rosamond. The products area of the site is where you will find the available products, all purchasable through CafePress.

Events Have Landed

After much debating (with myself), the events were moved over successfully to ExploreRosamond.com from the old EyeOnRosamond.com web site. Rather than maintaining two separate sites for different intended purposes, the goal now is to create a one stop location for all things Rosamond related.

Hope you enjoy,

Business Removals

Keep in mind that Explore Rosamond’s business directory is for businesses in Rosamond. If your business relocates elsewhere, you will be removed from our site. It is nothing against you or your business. It is the goal of this site to help businesses actually located here.

Best regards,

RSS Feed Sources Updated

I have updated the list of news sources for this site to exclude ABC23, as most of the stories they provide access to are not for Rosamond itself. You can search for Rosamond News stories on their site and get access to them directly, but there is no way for me to add them to the news section of this site. I apologize for this inconvenience.

I have also modified what is pulled in from the Mojave Desert News, with 100 results now appearing in the news section, up from the 11 previously there.

I am constantly working to improve the flow of information into this valuable resource for Rosamond, CA.

Listing Business Hours

The first round of listing operating hours has been completed. If an open and close time is listed for a particular day of the week, those hours are shown. Otherwise, the word Closed is shown.

Alternatively, hours can be hidden with the use of a single checkbox.

Upcoming additions: The ability to manage your own previously added business listings. Stay tuned.

Social Icons Have Landed

After some personal debate, I decided to go ahead and throw in an option to show the following social icons:

  • Facebook
  • Google Plus
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter

Others may be added over time, but wanted to get some of the more popular ones out there. The icons are blue squares with a rounded corner and are custom using logos from the various sites. Social icons will show underneath the business website link in the right column near the top of the single business listing page.

Additional features are planned including operating hours. Stay tuned.

Mobile Site Reflow

Walking through the site to fix the mobile layout. I have change things within the mobile setup to allow the phone number to be pushed down below the address in the Business Directory. The Business Directory main page is now set to a single column.

Phone numbers are now clickable on phones.

First Design Glitch Found

Looking at the main categories for the Business Directory, I see that the listing for child categories are also being pulled in. This is not the desired setup, so work is underway to only include listings in that parent category and simply show child categories as links at the top of the page.
